WBO super bantamweight champion Wilfredo "Papito" Vazquez Jr. said that he was very confident of remaining as the only undefeated champion in Puerto Rico. He vowed to end Mexico's recent run over Puerto Rican boxers. On May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, he faces former champion Jorge Arce on the Manny Pacquiao-Shane Mosley pay-per-view. In the last few weeks, Vazquez watched countrymen Juan Manuel Lopez and Ivan Calderon get knocked out by Mexican boxers. Fighters like Cesar Seda and Francisco Palacios lost their unbeaten records overseas.

“I very much regret what happened to my countrymen. I can assure you that I'm ready, ready to break the bad run we've had in boxing. I can assure you and give you my word as a man, Wilfredito Vázquez is 150% ready and on the night of May 7 I will return to Puerto Rico with my belt in hand," Vazquez told Victor Ortiz.

"It will not be an easy fight because I'm going to face a very experienced fighter. But I have the tools and the mastermind, who is my father (Wilfredo Vazquez), in the corner, to get the victory by any means. When I return I will give the belt back to the people of Puerto Rico to remove the thorn of bad luck."

[QUOTE=BorderPatrol]Alvarez? Bundrage? Wolak? Angulo? Williams? None of these dudes are terrifying. Also, maybe you should ask Chavez why he backed out of the Cotto fight with a tummy ache.[/QUOTE] Dude, did you read my other post?...I don't give a fuck about Chavez Jr. We...

[QUOTE=BorderPatrol]Cotto is ready to retire. This he has made clear "2-3 more fights" and he is out. Clearly he wants to avenge his losses and he would like to do this with minimal wear and tear prior to these rematches. Are you suggesting Arum should match him up with Wlad so that by the time h...
