Former WBA lightweight champion Miguel Acosta (28-4-2, 22KOs) will return to the ring on August 6th at Polideportivo José María Vargas in La Guaira, Venezuela. It will be Acosta's first outing since the knockout loss to Brandon Rios in February. Prior to the Rios defeat, Acosta had won 19 fights in a row, including knockout victories over top contenders Urbano Antillon and Paulus Moses.

Acosta a great figther He can mostly beat the entire 135, i think he would even beat marquez he jus seems to agile for marquez, marquez a counter puncher he cant do good against agile guys

After a bum tune-up for Juan Diaz and Acosta they should fight each other. Diaz-Acosta is a pretty good fight.
