Rivera: Alex De Jesus' Return Likely For Juanma Bill
By Rey Colon
Promoter Ivan Rivera of PR Best Boxing Promotions has confirmed that there is a strong possibility that former 140-pound prospect, Alex De Jesus, will return on February 2 at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum in Bayamon, which features the return of Juan Manuel Lopez in the main event.
De Jesus is serving a prison sentence in a prison in Bayamón PR, but he's part of a rehabilitation program that allows him to continue his career.
"This program is going to continue and the idea is to place De Jesus in a fight. He is training and there is a big possibility [of him fighting on the card]. You have to do a number of things [to make it possible], but those things we have done in the past nad we will find a way to provide continuity. Thank God we have been quite innovative and helped those guys [who are doing time in the prison system]," Rivera said.
De Jesus (20-1, 13KOs) has been inactive since August 2010.
