Miami Warfare II Open Workouts

A well-attended media workout was held at Thump Fight Gym in Miami for four of the fighters scheduled for the upcoming Miami Warfare II boxing event on Saturday, August 18, at the MACC at the Doubletree Hotel in Miami, Florida.

Main-event boxer Breidis Prescott and undercard participants Roberto Acevedo, Yunieski González and Leosvy Mayedo performed light training routines for the assembled media. Miami via Colombia’s Prescott (25-4, 18 KOs) will face New York’s Francisco “Gato” Figueroa (20-4-1, 13 KOs) in the 10-round main event and Cuban super featherweight sensation Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy will face dangerous spoiler Alejandro “Soma” Rodriguez (14-6, 7 KOs) of Guadalajara, Mexico. The two main fights will also be televised live on Telefutura’s Solo Boxeo Tecate.

Junior middleweight Leosvy Mayedo (2-0, 2 KOs) will face Atlanta’s Victor Pacheco (1-0-1, 1 KO) in a four rounder; Puerto Rican super middleweight Roberto Acevedo (5-0, 4 KOs) will face Pensacola, Florida’s Donald Clark (2-2, 1 KO) in a six-rounder and Cuba’s undefeated light heavyweight Yunieski González (8-0, 5 KOs) will face the toughest test of his career against Jermaine Mackey (18-5, 14 KOs) of the Bahamas.
