Agent who sent wrong boxer to fight in trouble

Agent who sent wrong boxer to fight in trouble

A Filipino promoter says he is filing a formal complaint to the Mexican Boxing Commission against an agent who sent the wrong boxer to fight IBF featherweight champion Rey "Boom Boom" Bautista.
ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer said Monday that his organization will sue also the Mexican agent, Hugo Correa.
Bautista was expected to fight Genaro "Poblanito" Garcia, who has a 38-8 record, but instead a heavier boxer with a poorer record called Genaro "Panterita" Garcia turned up.
The fight went ahead but ALA refunded the tickets after Garcia was knocked out in the second round.
