ZEPEDA IS RANKED NO. 1 BY THE WBC, WBA, IBF; NO. 2 BY THE WBO AND NO. 3 BY RING MAGAZINE

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (June 10, 2024) – Golden Boy Promotions announced today the contract extension of one of the most electric, undefeated knockout machines in the lightweight division, William “El Camarón” Zepeda (30-0, 26 KOs). Poised to become a world champion very soon, Zepeda is ranked No. 1 by the WBC, WBA, and IBF; No. 2 by the WBO; and No. 3 by Ring Magazine.

“I feel very happy and very grateful to Golden Boy for giving our team a boost and giving us the opportunity to continue to be a part of such a great company,” said William Zepeda. “My commitment and professionalism have kept the doors open for this contract extension. Together with my team and Golden Boy, we are lobbying for those great fights and a world championship in the near future.”

“I am excited to announce that we have extended our agreement with William Zepeda,” said Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy, Oscar De La Hoya. “Golden Boy happily reaffirms our commitment to him and his career goals. There is no one more exciting or dangerous in the lightweight division than Zepeda. Every time out, he is a threat to either break a Compubox record or take out an opponent in the first round, or both.”

Representing San Mateo Atenco, Mexico, the undefeated William Zepeda is on a grizzly path to become one of the most feared pound-for-pound fighters in the world. With a fan-friendly, nonstop action style that keeps aficionados on their feet, he is a knockout machine powered by an endless supply of gas. His breakout, upset victory performance was against former world champion Joseph “JoJo” Diaz in October 2022, where he broke three CompuBox records in the lightweight division for total punches thrown, jabs attempted in a round, and total attempted jabs. In addition to defeating the former world champion, he has also defeated former longtime world champion Rene Alvarado, former world title challenger Mercito Gesta, and most recently was last seen steamrolling through former world champion Maxi Hughes this past March 16, 2024. It was against Hughes where Zepeda’s volume and accurate punching were too much for the British pugilist whose corner threw in the towel at the conclusion of the fourth round in an IBF and WBA World Championship eliminator fight. His next fight will be against world title contender Giovanni Cabrera on Saturday, July 6, at Toyota Arena in Ontario, California.
