The latest member of the Cotto family to make his mark on the world boxing map is unbeaten junior lightweight Abner Cotto (14-0, 6 KOs), who will be looking for his 15th professional win without a loss on Saturday, November 17 when he meets up with Mexico’s Alejandro “Soma” Rodriguez (15-7, 8 KOs) in the main event of TeleFutura’s “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” from the Coliseo Roger Mendoza in Caguas, Puerto Rico. The six round co-main event will feature a meeting of two of the top junior lightweight prospects from the island, as Cataño’s Edgardo “Sasso” Lopez (5-0, 3 KOs) faces Bayamon’s Orlando Vazquez (5-1, 1 KO). In non-televised action, unbeaten Puerto Rican junior lightweight prospect Carlos Ivan Velasquez (13-0, 11 KOs) returns to the ring for the first time in over two years.
