The undefeated Jonathan “Bomba” Gonzalez, Felix “Diamante” Verdejo and Glen Tapia will headline the first 2013 show of Solo Boxeo Tecate in Puerto Rico to be broadcast on UniMas (formerly Telefutura) on March 23 at the Ruben Zayas Montañez Coliseum in Trujillo Alto, in a PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP) presentation in association with Top Rank.
“We have a venue for this show. It will be the Ruben Zayas Montañez Coliseum, where we were in September 2012 in a successful show. Trujillo Alto is a city with great boxing fans and we have Felix Verdejo, who trains in this town, as one of the co-main bouts,” PRBBP President Ivan Rivera said. “Besides Bomba Gonzalez, Verdejo and Tapia, we will have in action a good group of Puerto Rican prospects.”
The main event features WBO Youth flyweight champion and WBO flyweight #12 ranked, Bomba Gonzalez (11-0, 10 KOs) against a foe to be named in a fight scheduled for 10 rounds. Gonzalez comes off a “no contest” bout against Omar Salado on February 2 when the fight ended in the very first round after an unintentional right hook by Gonzalez hit Salado on the back of his head and the Mexican couldn’t continue.
London 2012 Olympian Verdejo (3-0, 2 KOs) will fight in a junior lightweight bout scheduled for four rounds against a rival to be determined.
In a six rounds junior middleweight fight, Glen Tapia (17-0, 10 KOs) will face a fighter to be named. For Tapia this will be his second fight in Puerto Rico.
Prospects John Karl Sosa (5-0, 4 KOs), Osenohad “Cano” Vazquez (6-1-1, 2 KOs), Rafael “El Pollo Blanco” Gonzalez (8-1, 6 KOs) and Jeffrey Ramos (3-0, 2 KOs), among others, will fight on the card.
