Lucio-Galvan to face tall Belgian featherweight in Vegas

Tim Parsons / Tahoe Onstage
After 14-months, Ricardo Lucio-Galvan finally gets someone to join him in the ring on April 25.

Ricardo Lucio-Galvan’s next opponent is a tall, brave Belgian named Zakaria Miri.

A 21-year-old featherweight boxer from Reno, Lucio-Galvan will end a 14-month layoff when he faces Miri in a four-round bout April 25 in Las Vegas.

His ring activity stalled after winning his first two bouts by knockout in his hometown. Last fall, Lucio-Galvan signed with VegasChamp Boxing, whose managers are being careful with the prospect and consider him to be a future champion.

Miri, who is 5-foot-10, 126 pounds, began his fighting career as a kickboxer. As a conventional boxer, he has gone around the world, entering the ring as an underdog. He’s lost both of his fights but has not been stopped.

Miri’s debut was Dec. 15 in the Yubei District in China. He lost to Xiao Tao Su, whose record was 7-1. On March 23 in San Mateo, California, Miri lost a four-round decision to undefeated Eros Correa (6-0), an alternate on the 2012 U.S. Olympic boxing team. Miri was Correa’s first opponent to go the distance.

“The idea for taking this match against a very tall featherweight is the confidence that Lucio-Galvan will find his way inside of Miri’s long jab and be able to showcase his relentless offensive attacks on the inside,” said Tahoe Onstage boxing columnist Simon Ruvalcaba.

“A great performance may line Ricardo up with future Roy Jones-promoted cards and also should get VegasChamp phones ringing with a Nevada Licensed fighter now in the books for the year.”

The Thursday, April 25, card at Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall is presented by Roy Jones Jr. Boxing Promotion. The main event has been changed. Now, North Ireland’s Connor “The Kid” Coyle (9-0, 3 KOs) will face Robert Burwell (8-2, 3 KOs) in an eight-round middleweight bout.

Tickets are reportedly going fast for the event. They cost $30 general admission to $75 for ringside. Fans can purchase general admission tickets from Lucio-Galvan personally, online at Samstownlv.com or at the door. Bouts start at 5 p.m. It will be televised on UFC Fight Pass.
