To his return to the professional boxing arena, Neslán Machado defeated Colombian Jonathan Pérez (12-0, 8 KO), a very good start for the Cuban fighter who looks for better and bigger opportunities in 2018. In declarations to the Miami press, Machado said he wanted to knock out his rival and that he felt very comfortable in the fight. However, the Cuban is aware that to reach the title of world champion he will have to face other more rigorous fights that will require greater preparation and momentum.
