BoxingScene.com recently spoke to former WBO super bantamweight champion Wilfredo "Papito" Vazquez Jr. (23-3-1) who will face former WBO super flyweight champion Marvin Sonsona on June 7th on the Miguel Cotto-Sergio Martinez pay-per-view undercard.

Vazquez Jr. recently signed with Miguel Cotto's promotional company and said that the reason he signed with his fellow Puerto Rican is because he believes that Cotto can lead him back to a title.

"I signed with Miguel for many reasons. He is a four-time champion. He is a fighter himself so he knows what I need. He has a great boxing company. I am thankful for all of the people that helped me get to this point and all the people that I am currently working with," Vazquez explained.

Sonsona and Vazquez fought for the vacant WBO super bantamweight title in 2010. Vazquez won that fight, stopping Sonsona in the 4th round. Even though he was able to win the fight by knockout, WV2 insists that he won't take Sonsona lightly in their rematch.

"I won't overlook him. The first fight wasn't easy. I knocked him out but he is a good boxer. I was very dedicated, very motivated in that fight. I am working hard and I want to win again and do it for my new promoter and my fans. I have been training hard already for this fight. I am almost on weight. In my career I have had ups and downs and now it is time to be up again," said Vazquez.

When Miguel Cotto tries to make history by stepping in the ring against Sergio Martinez, Vazquez will be supporting his countryman but admitted that it is a very tough fight for Cotto, who is trying to become the first Puerto Rican to win world titles in four different weight classes.

"I am always sincere even though he is my promoter. Martinez is taller and bigger but Miguel seems refreshed and I think he has what it takes to get the win," Vazquez told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=UTEP]Since losing to Vasquez at 122 Sonsona has knocked out 3 guys at 130 and 126, maybe he'll be stronger this time around at the higher weight, he's taller with a longer reach too, plus he was only 19 years old when they fought. It should be a much better fight this time around. You...
