-Press Release

LAS VEGAS – May 10, 2023 – Former two-

division world champion Rances Barthelemy and allaction Omar “El Relámpago” Juarez previewed their 10-round super lightweight showdown before they meet in the ring this Saturday, May 13 live on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT) from The Chelsea inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas headlining a Premier Boxing Champions event.

The co-main event between Barthelemy (29-2-1, 15 KOs) and Juarez (14-1, 5 KOs) will see a crossroads battle between two fighters looking to put themselves in position to capture a world title at 140 pounds. Already a champion at 130 and 135-pounds, Barthelemy seeks a second attempt at super lightweight glory, while the 23-year-old Juarez hopes to score a signature victory on his way to his first world title fight.

RANCES BARTHELEMY "I know Omar Juarez is a young, hungry fighter who's going to come out and try to make a statement. But I'm a veteran in this sport, and I've been in there with some of the best fighters in the world. I'm going to use all of my experience to my advantage and come out with the victory.

"A win over Juarez would be instrumental at this stage of my career, because I’m still looking for more big fights. It would show that I'm still one of the top fighters in the division and that I'm ready to take on anyone. I'm always looking for big opportunities, and a win on Saturday will help me accomplish those goals.

"I love fighting on SHOWTIME. They always put on great events, and I know that this fight is going to be a great one. I'm excited to showcase my skills on a big stage and put on a show for all the fans watching at home. As you saw in my last fight, I’m not holding back and will be letting my hands fly.

"I feel great. We had a tremendous training camp, and I'm ready to go out there and perform at my best. We worked on a lot of different things to prepare for this fight, and I feel like I've improved a lot since my last fight. I went into this camp thinking that this might be my last run, so I trained smart and with a lot of intensity.”

Barthelemy looks to rebound off a controversial stoppage lost to Gary Antunne Russell in his last fight.
