Bryan Vasquez-Diego Magdaleno Showdown in Play

By Francisco Salazar

There is a likelihood Bryan Vasquez could defend his super featherweight world title belt against Diego Magdaleno this fall, manager/ trainer Joe Hernandez told BoxingScene.com last week.

According to Hernandez, the Vasquez-Magdaleno bout was originally targeted for November 22 in Macao, China. It is the same date and place Manny Pacquiao is scheduled to return to the ring.

It looks as though Top Rank, which promotes both fighters, wants to stage the bout on a fight card in Singapore in mid-October.

Vasquez (33-1, 17 KOs) defended the WBA super featherweight title in his last bout on April 12, winning a 12 round unanimous decision over Jose Felix Jr.

The Costa-Rican born Vasquez has won his last four bouts in a row since his only defeat as a pro at the hands of Takashi Uchiyama.

Magdaleno (26-1, 10 KOs) is coming off a one-sided eight round unanimous decision over Oscar Bravo on May 17 in Inglewood, CA.

He has won his last three fights in a row since losing a close 12 round split decision to Roman Martinez on April 6.
