Vasquez-Gonzalez postponed, new date October 19

By Gabriel F. Cordero

A source confirmed to that the interim WBA super featherweight world title fight between the Costa Rican former WBA interim world champion Bryan “Tiquito” Vasquez and Nicaraguan challenger René “Chirizo” Gonzalez has been postponed until October 19. The World Boxing Association apparently requested the delay to put the fight on a “WBA KO Drugs Festival” charity event at the Ciudad Deportiva de Hatillo 8 in San Jose, Costa Rica. It is the third date change for the fight that was to take place this Saturday.
