Fast rising Cuban prospect Yunier Dorticos improved his record to 16-0 with 16 knockouts this past Saturday when he dispatched of the previously undefeated Hamilton Ventura (13-1-1) in the first round of their fight that took place in San Diego, California.  Dorticos picked up the interim WBC Latino and WBA Fedelatin cruiserweight titles in the process. 

With the win, Dorticos will now be ranked in the top 15 of both the WBC and the WBA, and will be in line to fight for a title soon.  Louis Fonseca, Vice President of Dorticos' promoter Caribe Promotions, also pointed out that his fighter made a big leap in the rankings on website boxrec.com.

"With this fight even on BoxRec he went from being ranked 24th to 13th among the best cruiserweights in the world and he is ready to fight with the world champions.  He is ranked now.  We are working on a fight in the upcoming months like April or May and then hopefully he will fight for a title after," said Fonseca while Dorticos followed up by saying, "After this win I am going to be ranked among the best in the world.  My hard work is paying off and I will continue to work hard and hopefully get an opportunity to fight for a title soon."

Dorticos credited his team, led by trainer Eric Castaños and training coordinator Armando Fernandez, for implementing a perfect game plan for the fight.  He said he followed their directions of working off of his jab and that everything else just fell into place.

"That was the game plan from the very beginning.  I had been working on that my entire training camp with my trainer Eric "El Tigre" Castaños and Manny "Wiz" Fernandez.  We wanted to neutralize him with our jab and use our power shots and get him out of there which I did," said Dorticos.

The 27-year-old power puncher said that he will be playing close attention to the May 17th WBA championship rematch between Denis Ledebev and Guillermo Jones and that he is also interested in facing WBC champion Krzystof Wlodarczyk.

"I would love to challenge (Wlodarczyk) or Ledebev, or the winner of his fight against Guillermo Jones.  I would love to fight any of them.  I want to fight the best fighters out there," Dorticos told BoxingScene.com.

The Florida based Caribe Promotions is led by President Boris Arencibia and in addition to Dorticos, their stable of fighters also include Guillermo Rigondeaux and Yordenis Ugas, among others.

[QUOTE=dan_cov]Easy tiger! What is the rush? Damn we've got champions and top contenders not fighting each other and boat loads of prospects being pushed way too soon. This guy has been past 2 rounds just twice & past 4 only once.[/QUOTE] lol The truth.

[QUOTE=Hougigo]Be careful what you wish for is all I'm going to say[/QUOTE] I know. Guys knock out a pile of journeymen and think they're ready for the big-time. Yunier needs to take it slow. He looks interesting so far, but we know what can happen when a prospect steps up.

[QUOTE=Tobi.G]This guy is the real deal! Watch out! Will be champion soon. The cruiserweight division becomes more interesting.[/QUOTE] I'm cautiously optimistic about Dirticos. His record looks shiny, but I've seen very limited footage of him. He's definitely an action-fighter, though. lol
