Jose Felix Jr. (26-1-1) last appeared in the ring on April 13th when he suffered his first career defeat against WBA interim lightweight champion Bryan Vasquez of Costa Rica. The fight took place on the Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley pay-per-view undercard in Las Vegas.

Felix has struggled to make the 130 pound super featherweight limit for quite some time and said that he is surprised that he was able to finish the fight. He didn't want to make excuses but said that he felt sick to his stomach and that he didn't have his legs under him.

"I don't want to make excuses. He won the fight. I really don't know how I lasted the whole fight. I felt like I was going to throw up and I felt really weak like my legs didn't work," said Felix.

The 22-year-old Sinaloa, Mexico native said that he plans to return to the ring in August and said that he will now target a title in the lightweight division.

"There is no way I can get down to 130 again. That last fight left a bad taste in my mouth and I want to show everyone what I am capable of doing. I think the fans know I am better than that," Felix told BoxingScene.com.

Felix burst onto the U.S. boxing scene when he upset Luis Cruz in Las Vegas in September, 2013 on the eve of the Sergio Martinez- Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. fight.

A move up would do him well, he's way too big for 130. He's only 22 years old, he should take a couple tune ups to settle into 135 before taking another big fight. I think he could make some noise at lightweight in 2015, he'll i'd pick him over Figueroa right now :lol1:
