The statements in the previous one heated up a fight that was postponed twice, first in February and then in March. The controversial arbitration decision in the first round, which took place on July 17, also gives a particular context to this fight since many saw the Argentine as the winner, although the judges gave a draw.

Tonight the referee will be Californian Jerry Cantu. The judges will be Glenn Feldman (from Connecticut), David Sutherland (from Oklahoma), and Zachary Young (from California).

As for the supervisors, the only one released so far is that of the FIB, the American Levi Martínez. It remains for the other three agencies to report theirs.
