Osvaldo Razon Replaces de la Rosa In Telemundo Feature

By Jake Donovan

The 2012 season debut of Boxeo Telemundo has already taken on a change at the top, as Luis de la Rosa was forced to withdraw from his 108 lb. regional title fight with Ivan Meneses. 

de la Rosa is replaced by Osvaldo “Chucky” Razon (10-3, 6KO), who now faces Meneses in an all-Mexico matchup Friday night at Auditorio Plaza Condesa in Mexico City.

Despite the last minute setback, promoter Tuto Zabala is content with the replacement fight and looks forward to a successful debut in this his 11th year with Telemundo.

“This will be a great fight between two little giants in Mexico,” Zabala states. “It’s our first show of the 2012 series in Mexico, where we will be presenting six (Telemundo) shows from Auditorio Condesa.”

Despite boasting the glossier record, Razon still takes on one of his stiffest tests to date, which is to say his resume isn’t very spectacular.

Meneses (16-9-1, 9KO) is a former strawweight title challenger, having fallen way short against then-titlist Roman Gonzalez in 2008. He enters this weekend’s headliner having lost his lone bout of 2011.

Razon trains under the guise of former flyweight champion Jose Luis Bueno in Ciudad Neza, the same hometown shared by Hall of Fame former junior flyweight king Humberto “Chiquita” Gonzalez.

The rest of the card remains intact, including local 115 lb. prospect David Carmona in a stay busy bout against a yet-to-be announced opponent. 

The show airs live at 11:35PM ET.
