UNDEFEATED WELTERWEIGHT SENSATION, JANESON FIGUEROA BOCACHICA IN ACTION TONIGHT IN PUERTO RICO
Sun, 20 Jan 2019
NEW YORK (JANUARY 19, 2019)-Undefeated welterweight Janelson Figueroa Bocachica will make his 2019 debut when he takes on Victor Abreu in a six-round bout in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.
The 20 year-old Bocachica from Detroit, has an impressive mark of 12-0 with eight knockouts, will be making his 1st start of the new year after a solid 2018 where he racked up four wins, with three of them coming early.
Managed by Split-T Management, Bocachica has raced on several prospect lists, and 2019 figures to be a moving year for Bocachica as he will most likely look to enter the world ratings.
Abreu of The Dominican Republic has a record of 9-4 with five knockouts, with a win over previously undefeated Richard Solano (5-0).
Bocachica weighed 146 pounds at Friday's weigh-in, while Abreu was 146.8
"I have family from everywhere coming to see me fight They are coming from Florida, Detroit and my family here in Puerto Rico. It is a real blessing coming true to be able to fight here," said Bocachica. "The Puerto Rican fans are going to see a well trained boxer, who has a lot of skills and aggression. I can't wait to put on a great performance for the fans."
"Janelson is one of the most exciting prospects in boxing, and I expect him to turn it up in Puerto Rico. Look forward to an exploding performance because he is very excited to show his homeland that he is a future world champion," said David McWater of Split-T Management
