Francisco Fonseca Grabs First Round KO, Wants Big Fight Next

Former multi-time world title challenger Francisco Fonseca moves to 26-3-2 after a first round knockout in Nuevo, Nicararo Managua in his homeland of Nicaragua.

Fonseca vs Eusebio Osejo headlined the Buffalo Boxing Promotions event and Fonseca sent a clear message to the super featherweight division, with a highlight reel knockout - with a straight right to body, that put away Osejo.

His trainer, former WBC and WBA world champion Rosendo Alavarez, discussed Fonseca's performance;

"Fonseca had really put in the hard work in training for this fight, he really wanted to show what he's trained for in the main event of the Buffalo Boxing event. Tonight we saw a new and rejuvenated Fonseca and the plan was always to finish the fight early and in style, we worked on the straight right to the body in the camp."

Fonseca, a former world title challenger, discussed fight preparations and future targets.

"I have trained day and night. It was really satisfying to get the first round knockout. The punch was timed to perfection. I'm very lucky to have such a good team around me with Buffalo Boxing, Ruth and Rosendo and my manager Dragon Fire Boxing's Tony Tolj," Fonseca said.

"With my team, I'm ready for all the top contenders like Carl Frampton, Felix Verdejo and we will be ready for any of the world champions, Berchelt, Diaz, Herring, Alvarado. I will discuss with Tony and we will plan."

Tolj opened up about the plans for Fonseca going forward.

"I'm very pleased with tonight's performance of Fonseca. He gave his absolute commitment in the lead up and it really showed. All Francisco wants is another world title shot. I know Frampton needs an opponent for his fight. I'm happy to put Fonseca's name in the Frampton pool. It would be an honor to fight such a respected boxer. I have a lot of belief in Francisco and the team and I believe the sky's the limit for Fonseca and another shot at one of the world champions is coming."
