Undefeated title belt collector Santiago "Somer" Dominguez Plans to add NABF welterweight strap to growing collection this Saturday

PhilBoxing.com




LAS VEGAS (September 21, 2020) - Undefeated, world-rated Mexican welterweight Santiago "Somer" Dominguez (22-0, 17 KOs) will be back in action this Saturday (Sept. 26) in Mexico, when he pursues yet another title belt, the vacant North American Boxing Federation (NABF), to add to his growing collection.

The 28-year-old Dominguez, fighting out of Obregon, Sonora, Mexico, is the reigning World Boxing Council (WBC) FECARBOX and USNBC (United States) 147-pound champion. Saturday night he headlines a De La O Promotions card in Cocorit, Sonora, Mexico. Ranked No. 14 in the WBC and No. 1 in the NABF, the fierce knockout artist faces fellow countryman Jose Rosario Cazarez (19-5-1, 10 KOs) in the 10-round main event for the vacant NABF crown. Blair Cobbs reportedly relinquished his NABF championship rather than fight his mandatory defense versus rising star Dominguez.

"I was surprised and humbled when I found out I was fighting for the vacated NABF belt," Dominguez commented. "I will not disappoint in this fight; my coaches have me ready."

"We believe Santiago Dominguez will be a world champion," said his promoter, RJJ Boxing CEO and co-founder Keith Veltre. "He's the highest ranked Mexican welterweight in the world and more than ready to move up to the next level. This will be his next step towards becoming the future of the welterweight division. We appreciate the chance for Santiago to fight for the NABF championship"

Cazarez, who is unbeaten in his last seven fights (6-0-1), has been stopped only once, four years ago. Santiago will certainly test his chin.

Dominguez' head trainer, Alfredo "Pollo " Ozuna, was Saul "Canelo" Alvarez' original coach. " Dominquez is focused and sharp this camp," Ozuna noted. "Santiago will display better footwork and an offense featuring speed, volume and crushing power. His opponent will meet the canvas and Santiago will be wearing the NABF title belt home."

"Our team is very appreciative for the opportunity awarded us from Mr. Duane Ford and the NABF," Santiago's manager Terry Hollan added. "It is certainly an honor!"
