Championship pro boxing July 7 on Cape Cod

Two-time Brazilian Olympian Agnaldo Nunes, reigning International Boxing Association featherweight champion, has been matched against Brooklyn brawler Sharmir “Isa” Reyes in the eight-round co-feature on an explosive July 7 “Let Freedom Ring” championship pro boxing show at the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis, Massachusetts.

Nunes (15-1-1, 8 KOs) is coming off of notable win by 10-round decision against Adalberto Borquez (12-1). Agnaldo’s also beaten Raymundo Beltran (16-2). His lone loss was in his seventh fight to Eric “Mighty Mouse” Aiken (8-1), the newly crowned IBF featherweight champion, by six- round decision (58-54, 57-55, 56-55).

Last year, Reyes stunned 19-1-2 Luis Antonio Arceo with a first-round TKO. Sharmir lost a 12-round decision in his last fight to Montey Meza Clay (18-0) for the vacant IBA super featherweight title.

Duran is the former Commonwealth light middleweight and welterweight champion whose victims include British lightweight champion Jamie Moore (20-1). Reyes lost his WBA Fedecentro welterweight title in his last fight to world-class veteran Cosme Rivera.
