By Miguel Rivera

Hot prospect Felix 'Diamante' Verdejo will return to the ring on August 16th as part of an event that takes place at the Coliseo Hector Sola Bezares of Caguas, Puerto Rico. Verdejo will officially take part in his first eight round bout. The card will be promoted by Miguel Cotto Promotions. Verdejo (13-0, 10KOs) was in action on June 7th, when he scored a first round knockout over Engelbert Valenzuela on the Cotto-Martinez undercard at Madison Square Garden in New York.

"We will fight August 16 in Caguas Sola Bezares. We will officially go up to eight rounds," said manager Ricky Marquez to Carlos Narvaez.
