Two of Mexico’s rising stars will be in the spotlight at The Grand Oasis Cancun in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico on Saturday, May 26 when Tlanepantla’s Pablo Cesar Cano (23-1-1, 18 KOs) faces Colombia’s Fidel Monterrosa (29-5, 23 KOs) and Cancun’s Sergio Thompson (22-2, 20 KOs) squares off against Argentina’s Juan Ramon Solis (17-5, 6 KOs) in co-headlining bouts to be broadcast on Televisa’s “Sabados De Corona” in Mexico and on FOX Deportes in the United States.
Also in action for fans on site in Cancun will be some of Golden Boy Promotions’ top prospects, as Deontay Wilder, Francisco Vargas and Jamie Kavanagh put their unbeaten records on the line in Mexico.
Cano made international headlines when he stepped in on short notice to face the legendary Erik Morales for the WBC super lightweight world title. Thompson is currently riding an eight fight winning streak, including a stirring second round technical knockout victory over former world champion Jorge Linares in his last fight in March.
In featured non-televised fights on the stacked 13-fight card, 2008 United States Olympic Bronze medalist Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder (21-0, 21 KOs) looks to keep his amazing knockout streak intact in an eight round fight against Bartonsville, Pennsylvania’s Jess Oltmanns (10-2, 7 KOs).
Mexico City’s Francisco Vargas (10-0-1, 8 KOs) is another 2008 Olympian showing off his talents on the professional stage, and with seven straight knockouts, he will be bringing the heat in his eight round junior lightweight bout against Ciudad Obregon’s Edgar Ramirez (9-5, 7 KOs).
