Felix Verdejo, Jose Lopez Ready For Caguas Bouts

CAGUAS, PR – Challenge accepted. Unbeaten Puerto Rican prospects Felix ‘El Diamante’ Verdejo and Jose ‘Wonder Boy’ Lopez are ready for the toughest fights of their respective careers this Saturday, August 16 at the Hector Sola Bezares Coliseum.

Verdejo (13-0, 10 KO’s) will fight for the first time in a eight round bout when he faces Chile’s rugged fighter Oscar ‘La Maquina’ Bravo (21-5, 9 KO’s) in the main event of the card.

“I hope my opponent is prepared so we can give the fans what they deserve, a great fight”, said Verdejo during the final press conference in Puerto Rico.

Ricky Márquez, Verdejo’s trainer and manager, assured ‘El Diamante’ is ready to get another win this Saturday.

“Felix has prepared for a war. We are very well prepared”, said Marquez.

Bravo and his trainer Luis Tapia think that they will be victorious because of their advantage in experience and they said once again that the young Puerto Rican prospect is not going to have an easy fight.

“On Saturday I’m going to leave it all in the ring. I’m not going to quit. I’m here to represent my country”, stated the fighter from Chile that has never been knocked out.

“Oscar is a warrior. If Verdejo wants to win this fight, he will have to fight”, said the trainer of ‘La Maquina’.

In the co-main event of the card, super bantamweight prospect José ‘Wonder Boy’ López (13-0, 10 KO’s) will defend his regional FECARBOX title.

“I’m very well prepared for whatever it is that our opponent brings to the ring”, declared the undefeated fighter promoted by Cotto Promotions.

Lopez will battle against Mexico’s Roberto ‘Azabache’ Castañeda (21-6-1, 15 KO’s) in an interesting eight round bout.

Promoter Hector Soto said that the event has been a huge ticket sales success after all Ring Side and Red Carpet tickets where sold. There are some General Entrance tickets left.

The program will be broadcasted as part of UniMas’s ‘Solo Boxeo Tecate’ Series.

The card will also include six more bouts where Jose ‘Chiquiro’ Martinez, Rashidi Ellis, Christopher ‘Pitufo’ Diaz, Alberto Machado, Yomar Alamado and Freddy Ortiz will expose their undefeated records.

“FUTURE STARS” is presented by Cotto Promotions in association with Top Rank and H2 Entertainment and will be televised live at 11pm ET/PT on UniMas.
