New opponent for Vazquez

Texas super welterweight titleholder Hector “El Diamante” Vazquez (10-1, 2 KOs) will face a new challenger who comes to Standing 8 Promotion’s Bud Light Pro Fight 5 on October 19 at Cowboys Dancehall in Arlington, Texas. After original foe Salvador Amir Roa got injured while training, the Texas Boxing Commission wouldn’t allow Roa to fight, so Vazquez will now be facing Cory Yett (4-4-1, 2 KOs) from Austin, Texas. Yett and Vazquez already fought in 2011, with Vazquez winning by unanimous decision.
