Isidro García Ayala (born May 15, 1976 in Taxco de Alarcón, Mexico) is a former Mexican boxer in the Featherweight division. He is the former WBO Flyweight Champion.[1]

Professional career[edit]

In May 1998, Isidro won the WBO NABO Flyweight Championship by beating veteran Everardo Morales and ended up making 4 title defences.[2]

WBO Flyweight Championship[edit]

On December 18, 1999 Ayala won the WBO Flyweight Championship by upsetting Puerto Rico's José López over twelve rounds.[3] Lopez at the time was scheduled to fight Alejandro Montiel who withdrew hours before the fight. Ayala, a spectator on that night, agreed to fight in Montiel's stead and won, to much surprise, using borrowed equipment. He also defended his title successfully against Jose Rafael Sosa in Córdoba, Córdoba, Argentina.[4]
