Bryan Acosta to face Jon Martinez on Sept. 14 in Toronto

Lee Baxter Promotions is staging another night of professional boxing in Toronto, live on DAZN.

Headlining the event, on September 14, is Bryan Acosta (17-0 6KOs) as he arguably faces his toughest test to date as he takes on Jon Martinez (12-6-5 2KOs) from Bilbao, Spain.

Acosta boxed for the WBC Continental Americas featherweight title last time out, a spectacular stoppage in the 10th round saw Acosta crowned champion. Martinez is in fantastic form, as he is unbeaten in his last 6 fights and will look to use his experience to upset the younger prospect.

An undefeated showdown between Josh Lupia (6-0 6KOs) and Jesus Solis Reyes (3-0) is co-main event on the night. A life threating incident caused Lupia to have a 2-year break from the ring, Lupia stayed mentally strong and dedicated to getting back in the ring again.

Lupia returned to the ring in July with a dominant performance and another knockout. The 2x Canadian amateur champion has very good power, as his 100% knockout rate shows.

A brilliant matchup that could go either way. As they say, someone’s 0 has got to go.

A crossroads bout as Uriel Perez (19-5 18KOs) battles it out with Edwing Davila (19-2 11KOs). Last time out, Perez took on Maurice Hooker in a bout that was scheduled for 10 rounds. Since his fight with Hooker, Perez has been training at Hardknocks Boxing Club in Toronto with head coach Billy Martin, perfecting his craft.

Perez already possesses fast hand speed, and his power speaks for itself as 18 of his 19 wins come by way of knockout. Davila also has 11 knockout wins on his record. Davila is a former challenger for the NABA, WBO Latino and WBA Inter-Continental titles.
