“Latin Fury 10” will still go on and is as scheduled headlined by the two world championship fights: Urbano Antillon (26-0, 19 KOs) and Miguel Acosta (25-9-2, 19 KOs) will fight for the vacant WBA interim lightweight title, while WBA light flyweight champion Giovani Segura (20-1-1, 16 KOs) will defend his crown against Sonny Boy Jaro (30-7-5, 19 KOs).

Chavez (39-0-1, 29 KOs), and son of the legendary Mexican fighter, was hurt last Wednesday in California. He has not been able to throw any punches effectively because of the pain. He’s expected to fight next in September or October.
