Undefeated hot lightweight prospect Felix "El Diamante" Verdejo (9-0, 6KOs) suffered an injury to his left hand, which has forced him to withdraw from the card being promoted by Top Rank and Miguel Cotto Promotions on the 14th of December at the Roger Mendoza Coliseum in Caguas, Puerto Rico.
"I wish to inform you that I will not fight on the undercard of December 14th event in Caguas due to an injury to my left hand. Me and my manager have taken this difficult decision to ensure that I'm 100% healthy to continue with my career. I very much regret not being able to do this fight on my land, as that was my desire, but I hope to get the opportunity to do so in 2014 with the help of God. Thank you very much for all your support and may God continue to bless me," said Verdejo.Tags: Felix Verdejo
