By Jhonny Gonzalez

The former world champion of the International Boxing Federation, Colombian Juan Urango, will return to the in his homeland of Monteria, Colombia, on Friday September 14. The event will be held at the Recreation Center Tacasuan.

Urango, 31, with a record of 23-3-1 and 18 KOs, will take his bout at 154 pounds over ten rounds against veteran and former world championship challenger Oney Valdez (22-15-1, 16 KOs), a native of Barranquilla.

Urango returns to his country after nearly a ten year absence, during which he carried his powerful punch to the rings of Spain, the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

After a two year layoff, he came back in April to take a fight in Mexico and knocked out Christian Chavez in two rounds.

He wants to build himself up to the point of getting a shot at the current WBC king, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

In the main support, South American champion Anuar Salas (11-1, 9 KOs) will defend his belt against Ecuadorian Juan Carlos Vega (8-2, 5 KOs).

Urango does have some name recognition with the average boxing fan. I'm sure he can make some coin playing gatekeeper for some of the younger up and comers. Good luck to him.
