By Osman Rodriguez

Figueroa and Prescott will fight each other on August 18 in Miami, Florida. Telefutura will televise. Figueroa is trying to get his career back on track after going 0-1-2 in his last three fights.

"Not so fast, buddy. You gotta get through me first. I am going to bring the heat on August 18th. The Cat is back and I'm looking to dominate the 140-pound division," Figueroa stated.

"I fight for the Puerto Rican people, I fight for my family, I fight for the thrill of victory. Prescott calls himself "The Khanqueor", he's going to be scratching posts when I'm done with him."
