Miguel Cotto Sees Big Things Ahead For Jeffrey Fontanez

With only 19 years and 5’10” tall, hard hitting top prospect Jeffrey Fontánez (7-0, 6KOs) had an impressive KO victory last Friday, May 4th against game Rocco Espinoza at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Fighting under Miguel Cotto Promotions and H2 Entertainment’s banner, this impressive young gun is been billed as the future of the Puerto Ricanbreed of fighters.

“Jeffrey is a really talented skilled boxer. He has great abilities to box but at the same time raw power. We truly believe that he will be a great sensation,” Miguel Cotto stated.

Jeffrey will be in action again on Boxeo Boricua in Caguas: Fast & Strong on Saturday, June 30th at the Roger Mendoza Coliseum, as part of the successful boxing series “Solo Boxeo: Tecate” on Univision Deportes, in a co-promotion between Miguel Cotto Promotions , Hector Soto's H2 Entertainment and Oscar de la Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions.
