The upcoming super featherweight bout between Andy Vences and Albert Bell will still happen, but it will take a week longer than originally anticipated.
Top Rank Boxing announced that the fight, for the WBC Continental Americas title, will take place on June 15 in Las Vegas instead of June 8 in Reno, Nevada. The fight will now be part of the ESPN2 undercard for the Tyson Fury vs. Tom Schwarz fight that will be streamed on ESPN+.
Vences, a 28-year-old fighter from California, is unbeaten as a pro, coming into the fight with a 22-0-1 record. Vences is coming off two straight wins in the past 12 months after fighting Erick De Leon to a majority draw in March 2018. Heading to the fight, Vences is ranked No. 12 by the WBC and No. 11 by the WBO at super featherweight.
Like Vences, Bell is undefeated as a pro, winning all 14 of his fights with five of those wins coming by knockout and one no contest. The 26-year-old Bell has not fought since winning a six-round decision against Edward Katembo in Minnesota as part of the undercard for Rob Brant vs. Khasan Baysangurov.
The undercard will also feature rising women's boxing star and current NABF super featherweight titleholder Mikaela Mayer taking on former world title challenger Lizbeth Crespo. As for the ESPN+ main card, not only will Fury make his Top Rank debut but also have a light heavyweight matchup between former world title challengers Jesse Hart and Sullivan Barrera.
