Mario Barrios and Naim Nelson Face Off In High Stakes 140-pound Battle
When junior welterweights Mario Barrios and Naim Nelson step inside the ring at Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on Tuesday night, there will be too much at stake to consider their bout just another boxing match.
One of boxing’s most steadily progressing prospects is back in action tonight as 140-pound sensation Mario Barrios (19-0, 11 KO) is out to keep his recent run going against Naim Nelson (13-3, 1 KO) in the main event of Toe-to-Toe Tuesdays on FS1. 2-0 already in 2017, Barrios is on the cusp of world title contention, and he’ll try to take that next step when action begins tonight on FS1 at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.
