April 28 Opponents Announced for Humberto Velazco and Damien Vazquez in Aguascalientes MX

PhilBoxing.com


AGUASCALIENTES, MX (April 16, 2018) - Opponents have been announced for Humberto "Tito" Velazco (19-1-1, 13 KOs) and Damien "Sugar" Vazquez (13-0, 7 KOs), who are both scheduled to fight on April 28, 2018 in Aguascalientes, MX, on the "Feria de Campeones" card, promoted by Sugar Promotions.

Velazco, who hails from Aguascalientes, will face Columbian power puncher, Davis Caceres (25-8, 20 KOs), in a 10-round main event bout, for the vacant WBC Silver Super Middleweight title. Vazquez, from Las Vegas, NV, will battle Venezuela's Luis Golindano (9-0, 6 KOs), for the WBC Jr. Bantamweight Youth World title, in a 10-round co-main event clash.


In his last fight on the undercard of Victor Ortiz vs. Devon Alexander, Velazco scored an impressive 4th-round knockout over, Thomas Williams Jr. (20-4, 14KOs), who was ranked top ten in the world one time. Velazco's powerful straight left to the head of Williams ended the bout, and the punch was the knockout of the night. For this fight, Velazco, who is currently ranked WBC #17 at light heavyweight, will go down to super middleweight against Caceres.

"Although my last fight was at light-heavyweight, I'll be campaigning at super-middleweight when I face Caceres," said Velazco, who is managed by Greg Hannley of Prince Ranch Boxing. "I'm very thankful to Sugar Promotions and the WBC for letting me fight for the vacant Silver super-middleweight title. Caceres is a big puncher, so I'm taking this fight very seriously. But make no mistake about it, I'm going for the knockout. I'm very confident that in the very near future, I'll be knocking on the doorstep of a world championship bout."

The winner of Velazco vs. Caceres, will face the winner of Dmitrii Chudinov vs. Azizbek Abdugofurov. That winner, will be one step closer to fighting for the WBC super-middleweight title against David Benavidez.

Damien Vazquez, age 20, will be looking to make a statement against Luis Golindano.
Against Miguel Lizardo in his last fight, Vazquez scored a 5th round TKO. Damien, who is the younger brother of former two-time world champion Israel Vazquez, has been training in Aguascalientes for the last two weeks.

"I wanted to host camp in Aguascalientes since I'm going to be promoting a lot of fights out here," said Damien Vazquez, whose father Oscar Vazquez runs his promotional company, Sugar Promotions. "My goal is to win impressively against Golindano and let everyone in my division know that I'm coming."

"Feria de Campeones", will take place at the world-famous Plaza de Toros San Marcos in Aguascalientes, MX. Stadium View Network (SVN) will distribute the entire fight card to its network in the U.S., which include Racetracks, Casinos, and bars. In addition, Sugar Promotions will be live streaming the event over the internet on Facebook Live, and Nextchannel.tv.
