Hot prospects Jonathan “Bomba” Gonzalez and Felix “Diamante” Verdejo will headline, in separate fights, the new edition of the UniMas Solo Boxeo Tecate show this Saturday, March 23, at the Ruben Zayas Coliseum in Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico, in a PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP) presentation in association with Top Rank.

Besides Bomba Gonzalez and Diamante Verdejo, will fight in the card contender Luis “El Artesano” Cruz in his return to Puerto Rico, unbeaten prospect John Karl Sosa and some young Puerto Rican fighters for a total of eight bouts.

 “We are back to Trujillo Alto, where we  presented a successfull show in September, 2012, but now we have prospects Bomba Gonzalez and Felix Verdejo in the principal roles and we expected a big support of the fans there”, PRBBP President Ivan Rivera said. “This will be the first Solo Boxeo Tecate show this year in Puerto Rico, where we are going to bring to the fans some good fights”.

the main event, the WBO Youth flyweight champion Bomba Gonzalez (11-0, 10 KOs) will fight against Joseph Rios (13-7-2, 4 KOs) in a 10 rounds and 113 pounds bout. In his last fight, Gonzalez, ranked #14 by the WBO in the flyweights, ended in a “no decision” result against Omar Salado on February 2, when in the first round Gonzalez hit Salado with an unintentional right hook on the back of his head, and the Mexican couldn’t continue the fight. Rios is an experienced boxer who never had been knocked out.

“I’m in a very good condition to show everyone what I can do. If Rios said that this will be a war, I’m ready to show my skills in the ring”, Gonzalez said.

Rios said that “I’m here to bring a great show to the fans. This will be a war”.

While, Diamante Verdejo (3-0, 2 KOs) is going to fight for the second straight time in his country when he faces Martin Quezada (2-3, 2 KOs) in a junior lightweight and four rounds bout. Verdejo come off a third round TKO over Jose Santiago on February 2. He debuted on December, 2012, with a decision win over Leonardo Chavez in Las Vegas and then on January 19, 2013, scored a first round KO victory over Tomi Archambault.

“I’m very happy to fight again in Puerto Rico. I work hard every day to be in the best shape and this Saturday you are going to see another great fight”, Verdejo said.

Also, El Artesano Cruz (20-2, 16 KOs), will fight in Puerto Rico for the first time since April, 2011, when he beat Martin Honorio. This time, Cruz will face Steve Trumble (12-25, 8 KOs) in a bout scheduled to eight rounds in 138 pounds. Cruz is coming off a lost against Mexican Jose Felix Jr. on September, 2012.

In six rounds fights, prospect John Karl Sosa (5-0, 4 KOs) will face Samuel “Sammito” Santana (5-7-2) in a 143 pounds bout; in 140 pounds, Osenohad “Cano” Vazquez (6-1-1, 2 KOs) will fight against Pascali “Gato” Adorno (10-8-3, 4 KOs), and Rafael “El Pollo Blanco” Gonzalez (8-1, 6 KOs) will fight versus Regino Canales (5-3, 2 KOs) in a 135 pounds bout.

Scheduled to four rounds Jeffrey Ramos (3-0, 2 KOs) will face Christopher Rivera (4-12, 4 KOs) in 135 pounds, and Bernard Lebron will debut against Nataniel Vazquez (0-1) in 142 pounds.
