Middleweights will tangle for the first time ever as South American double champion Zenshi takes on the unpredictable Hijo de LA Park. Which luchador will be one step closer to a title shot? Find out this Thursday LIVE in NYC!
MLW today announced Zenshi vs. Hijo de LA Park (presented by Salina de la Renta) for MLW: Never Say Never '19 at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City on July 25. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.
Wouldn't it be grand if Salina de la Renta controlled both the World Heavyweight and Middleweight Championships? With LA Park guaranteed a title shot anytime, anywhere, Hijo de LA Park is in the hunt for a title shot. So close, matchmakers anticipate a title bout could happen in 2019. IF he can continue his winning ways.
In the way of Promociones Dorado's conquest for golden is the amazing Zenshi.
Holding the Chile Lucha Libre International All Star Championship for a record 1,965 days (and counting) and Peru’s LWA International Championship, the decorated aerial artist Zenshi is a perennial main eventer in South America.
Originally from Atlanta, the tecnico luchador relocated a few years ago to South America on a journey of enlightenment. Now calling Santiago, Chile home, Zenshi reemerges in America as a transformed fighter.
Wearing a colorful mask, the high flying luchador is one of South America’s most popular fighting athletes. Thrilling fans and overwhelming opponents with gravity defying attacks such as Salvador Dragon (a running dragonrana from a lunge, sometimes with a bounce handstand) the Michealandbelo (bottom rope 450 Splash) or the Yin & Yang (630 senton from middle turnbuckle), Zenshi is South America’s premier luchador.
Witness sky combat LIVE in New York July 25 at the Melrose Ballroom as MLW presents an MLW Fusion TV taping (buy tickets). The card has a 7pm start time.
