BoxingScene.com has been advised that young lightweight contender Jose Felix Jr. has been added to the March 7th card in Macao that features Zou Shiming's title shot against IBF flyweight belt-holder, Amnat Ruenroeng, from the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Resort.
Felix, who suffered his first defeat last April versus Bryan Vasquez - in an unsuccessful attempt at the WBA interim-super featherweight title - moved up in weight and finished off 2014 with victories over Adolfo Rodriguez (TKO6) and Luis Solis (TKO3). The 22-year old from the Los Mochis, Mexico, has a mark of 28-1-1 (23 KO's).
While Shiming's bout will be featured on HBO2, along with Glen Tapia-Daniel Dawson, Felix's bout will be televised on the 'Solo Boxeo' series on UniMas. His opponent is still yet-to-be-determined.
