The Mayor of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, José Manuel Bermúdez, has received boxer Adán Hernández Silvera, who won the title of Champion of Spain of the Supermedia weight a few months ago.
The Tenerife fighter managed to defeat Mariano ‘Tiburon’ Hilario by k.o. in the fifth round of the evening held in Fuenlabrada (Madrid).
Sr. Bermúdez conveyed to the athlete his pride for the achievement, “especially in a sports discipline, boxing, of enormous tradition in our city and that has brought many historical champions who still remain alive in the memory of many Santacruceros”.
Silvera shared with the municipal councillor his experiences to be able to access the fight in which, finally, he won the national title of his weight and also participated in his sports plans for the 2019 season.
At this point, the fighter revealed that, at 33 years of age, he will focus his preparation “on trying to compete in the European Union Championship within my category, since by ranking I can access that title that, right now, is what what excites me the most.”
