Jose Zepeda in Line To Face Rios if Chaves Falls Through

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised that undefeated junior welterweight prospect Jose Zepeda (19-0) is a strong candidate to face Brandon Rios on Saturday at the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada if Diego Chaves is unable to enter the United States.  BoxingScene.com's Jake Donovan reported that Chaves, who lives in Argentina, is having difficulty obtaining a work visa due to a backlog in the US Immigrations courts.
