Humberto Soto Faces Silverio Ortiz, Alvarez is Out
by Miguel Rivera
Former three division world champion Humberto Soto (59-8-2, 34KOs) will now face veteran Silverio Ortiz (26-13, 12KOs) in a match for the WBC's vacant silver junior welterweight championship. The event takes place on February 9th at Arena Itson in Sonora, Mexico. Soto was going to face Ricardo Alvarez, the brother of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, but Ricardo withdrew from the contest.
