Undefeated hot Mexican prospect Rogelio “Porky” Medina (16-0, 14 KOs), who hails from the state of Sonora, will face the biggest test of his career this coming Saturday against fellow Mexican prospect from Chihuahua, Mexico, Bladimir Hernandez (15-1, 13 KOs). The bout takes place on the undercard of the “Latin Fury 8: Tijuana Thunder” card, televised on PPV at the Plaza de Toros in Tijuana and headlined by son of the legend, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr.
In a scheduled eight-round middleweight bout, “Porky” vs. Hernandez is sure to set off fireworks, practically guaranteeing a knockout ending in this clash of power punchers.
“Porky” Medina’s prepared for this bout alongside Chavez, Jr. in Culiacan, Mexico where they held spirited sparring sessions.
Medina says he is prepared to the fullest to make a good impression on such an important event, and against a tough and dangerous opponent.
As Medina is often questioned about the “Porky” moniker, he explains that as a kid he used to be teased for being short and chubby, a funny anecdote now is that Medina is turning out to be one of the brightest prospects coming from Mexico and one to certainly keep an eye on.
