Rising welterweight prospect Prichard “Digget” Colón has been added to the August 9 show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The unbeaten knockout artist from Puerto Rico will appear on the undercard in supporting capacity to the planned Showtime-televised tripleheader headlined by Danny Garcia’s defense of the lineal 140 lb. championship versus fringe contender Rod Salka. 

The bout marks Colón’s first career fight in New York, and just his second fight outside of Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic since turning pro last February. It’s also the second time he appears on the same card as Garcia, their previous shared bill taking place this past March when Garcia fought in Puerto Rico for the first time in his career.

“It’s an honor for me to fight on a big stage like the Barclays Center in Brooklyn,” Colón (10-0, 10KOs) told Boxingscene.com Wednesday afternoon. “It’s my New York debut and once again on the same show as another title defense of our Puerto Rican champion, Danny Garcia. This will be a big night for Puerto Rico at Barclays. I know it will be packed with Puerto Ricans and—God willing—we will give all of the fans a great show.”

An opponent is still being sought for the fight, which will take place at a 150 lb. catchweight.

His most recent appearance cane this past June, stopping Carlos Garcia five rounds on Fox Sports 1, matching the most rounds he’s been forced to go in a pro fight to date, with eight of his 10 bouts ending in three rounds or less. The bout took place with Felix ‘Tito’ Trinidad at ringside, less than two weeks after the wildly popular Puerto Rican superstar was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Colón is currently in Las Vegas, in support of fellow Boricua boxer Jonathan Oquendo, who faces Abner Mares this weekend.

you never know if this guy is the next big thing watch him knock his opponent out the ring and call out Gift Garcia for claiming his country on his own fight card
