Giovani Segura Aguilar (born April 1, 1982) is a Mexican professional boxer. He is a former WBA, WBO, Lineal and The Ring magazine light flyweight champion.[1]

Amateur career[edit]

Giovani began boxing at the age of 15 years and had an Amateur Record of 38–4.[2]

Professional career[edit]

Segura made his professional debut on March 28, 2003. He accumulated a record of 18–0–1, which included wins against future champion Carlos Tamara and former champion Daniel Reyes.

WBA Light Flyweight Champion[edit]

Giovanni challenged Colombian César Canchila for the Interim WBA Light Flyweight title. Segura lost the bout by unanimous decision, but subsequently claimed the interim title by knocking out Canchila in a rematch on March 14, 2009.[citation needed]

He was elevated to full champion on June 5, 2009.[3][4] Segura defended his newly acquired title on July 25, 2009 by stopping Juanito Rubillar in six rounds. On November 21, 2009, he defended his title against Sonny Boy Jaro by first round knock out. On February 20, 2010, he defended his title for a third time against Walter Tello.[5]

Segura vs. Calderon I & II[edit]

On August 28, 2010 Giovani fought undefeated WBO Light Flyweight champion Iván Calderón in a unification bout.[6][7] Segura went on to knock out Calderón in the eighth round, successfully unifying his WBA title with the Puerto Rican's WBO and Lineal Light Flyweight Championships.[8][9][10] In his next fight, he defeated former champion Manuel Vargas via 7th round stoppage.

Giovani Segura and Iván Calderón would both meet again in April 2011. Segura won the rematch by third round knockout.[11] Following that victory, Segura vacated his titles in order to move up to the Flyweight division where he was KO by Brian Viloria.[12]
