Vasquez Jr. ready to make history

"Double Assault!" PPV on February 27th

WBC Latino super bantamweight champion Wilfredo Vasquez, Jr. (17-0-1, 14 KOs), the proud son of two-time world champion Wilfredo Vasquez, plans to make Puerto Rican history February 27th when he fights former WBO super flyweight titlist “Marvelous” Marvin Sonsona (14-0-1, 12 KOs) for the vacant WBO junior featherweight title. “This is a very important fight because we will make history in Puerto Rico by being the first father and son world champions, also with the same promoter (Tuto Zabala, Jr.),” Vasquez, Jr. explained.
Vasquez, Sr. was a great bantamweight and super bantamweight in the late eighties and early nineties who had a pro record of 56-9-2 (41 KOs). “I am happy and proud,” he said about his son. My son fights like me. He inherited my punching power and he punches like a junior welterweight!”
The Vasquez vs. Sonsona world title contest is the headliner of the February 27th “The Double Assault!” pay-per-view event which begins at 9p ET/6p PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, TVN, DISH Network, Viewer’s Choice and Shaw PPV.
