BROWNSVILLE, TX (February 21, 2019) - Welterweight prospect Omar "El Relampago" Juarez (1-0) of Brownsville, Texas, returns this Saturday, February 23, 2019 at the Minneapolis Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Juarez, a 19-year-old amateur standout has his sights set on becoming a star, as he enters his second pro fight working with PBC brand, the industry leader in the sport.
"I am excited to live out my dream, to be able to compete and have a chance to dominate at the highest levels," said Omar Juarez.
