Ellis vs. Mosquera Tops Golden Boy on ESPN Card in Cancun

Rising hot welterweight contender Rashidi "Speedy" Ellis (19-0, 13 KOs) of Boston, Mass. will return to the ring in a 10-round welterweight fight against rugged Panamanian warrior Alberto "Metralleta" Mosquera (25-3-2, 16 KOs) in the main event of the June 29 edition of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN at the Oasis Arena in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico. ESPN and ESPN Deportes will air the fights beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. ESPN3 will live stream undercards beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT.

Ellis is an elusive boxer with quick hands who captured his first regional title by defeating
Eddie "E-Boy" Gomez in via stunning first-round knockout in Dec. 2016. Ellis has also defeated tough fighters such as JohnKarl Sosa. The 25-year-old will return after his fourth-round technical stoppage victory against Fidel Monterrosa Muñoz, who is a common opponent of Mosquera.

"I'm excited to fight for the first time in Mexico on a card of international proportions and televised on ESPN," said Rashidi Ellis."My opponent this time, Alberto Mosquera, has a lot of experience because he has fought a lot of good fighters. All of this is double motivation for me because a victory against him will be very important."

Mosquera is a 31-year-old fighter with stiff opposition on his resume as well, including fights against Erick Bone and Sammy "The Who Can Mexican" Vazquez. The southpaw contender has also defeated Fidel Monterrosa Muñoz by knockout and is ready to use all of his experience to derail Ellis's chance at a world title.
