This news came from promoter Eddie Hearn (Matchroom Boxing), writes
The location of the battle has not been revealed.
They fought their first fight in 2012 as part of the first flyweight (up to 49 kg): then the 12-round battle ended with the victory of Roman on UD 12 points. The revenge in March 2021 also went all the way, but ended already in favor of the Mexican. This time the judge’s verdict was divided and uncontroversial.
