Undefeated Jayson Velez (21-0, 15KOs) might return on June 7th, as part of the Miguel Cotto-Sergio Martinez undercard at New York's Madison Square Garden.
Velez was last seen in action last October, winning a ten round unanimous decision over Dat Nguyen. He was scheduled to return on the undercard of February's rematch between Aber Mares and Jhonny Gonzalez, but the card was canceled when Mares withdrew with an injury.
Now Velez, who is co-promoted by Miguel Cotto Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions, is looking at a potential return in June.
"We are waiting to get authorization from Golden Boy Promotions to include Jayson on the big event [being co-promoted by] Top Rank. Miguel has spoken with Oscar de la Hoya and Richard Schaefer, and right now we're just hoping to get authorization [to put him on the show]," said Hector Soto, VP of Miguel Cotto Promotions, to Carlos Narvaez.Tags: Jayson Velez
