Escalante and Juarez at the crossroads

Leija Battah Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions will promote what looks to be an interesting Tex-Mex junior lightweight crossroads clash between former Olympian Rocky Juarez (28-10-1, 20 KOs) and Antonio Escalante (28-4, 19 KOs) on October 27th at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Texas. Escalante is looking to put the biggest notch yet on his belt, while Rocky is looking to show that he’s more than a division gatekeeper.

The 27-year-old Antonio Escalante is in the midst of one of the best hot streaks of his career, having scored four consecutive knockout victories. In contrast, Juarez, 32, amazingly hasn’t won a fight in over four years, albeit against a higher level of competition. The bout will headline TeleFutura’s weekly “Solo Boxeo” telecast.
