World class boxing comes to Costa Rica on Friday, Dec. 5, when Roberto Garcia takes on Humberto Aranda in a middleweight scrap. The 24-2 Mexican Garcia has a glowing record but the 37-15 Aranda holds the experience edge (he’s fought Kermit Cintron and Raul Marquez) and being a Costa Rica native, he’ll have the crowd on his side.

Also, fans of the sweet science will get more bang for their buck, as Ferrid Kheder (7-4) takes on Alejando Solano (6-3) in a welterweight mixed martial arts bout.

The action kicks off at 8 PM and unfolds at Villa Olimpica in Desamparados, CR.

Twelve bouts, 10 MMA, two boxing, are scheduled. The event kicks off at 9 PM (EST) and readers can watch for free on and
