After losing his unbeaten record in a controversial decision last March in Chicago, 26-year-old Puerto Rican boxer Roberto Acevedo (8-1, 5 KOs) came back in a big way last Friday in Atlantic City, New Jersey, proving he’s one of the top prospects in the light heavyweight division. Acevedo looked strong in his debut after moving up from super middleweight as he blew away highly touted and previously undefeated WBA #14 rated Ilshat Khusnulgatin (11-1, 6 KOs).

“I felt strong. My hands went well and I could hurt him and finish him off. Thank God we could do the work and show we are here to stay,” said Acevedo, who took the fight on only 7 days notice. Roberto, who is managed by Boxing Free Agent Management, will be returning to the ring in March looking for a regional title.
