Undefeated super featherweight Mario Barrios (14-0, 8 KOs) makes his 2016 debut on March 15, at the Robinson Rancheria Resort & Casino in Nice, CA. Barrios, a San Antonio TX, native is scheduled to fight in a 10-round bout against an opponent TBA. Barrios’ bout will be part of the televised portion of Premier Boxing Champions Toe-to-Toe Tuesdays PBC on FS1.

After a momentous 2015 where he went (7-0, 5 KOs), Mario Barrios is looking to continue his march toward a world title. Standing 6’1, Barrios wants to fight for a championship before he out grows the super-featherweight division.

“Right now the goal is to win a world title at 130 pounds,” said Mario Barrios. “I’m still young enough that making weight is not a problem at the moment. I believe with a few more fights, I’ll be ready to challenge any of the champions at super-featherweight. First and foremost I must focus on March 15th and bring home a victory.”

This fight marks the third bout in a row where Barrios will be fighting in front of a nationally televised audience. Mario is grateful for the opportunity to be fighting on FOX Sports once again.

“I love fighting on Toe-to-Toe Tuesdays on FOX Sports,” Barrios continued. “I’m very thankful that FOX is brining me back. I’m always looking to impress those that are watching with an electrifying performance. If I get my opponent hurt at any time during the fight, you know I’m going for the knockout.”
