ORANGE, CA (July 18, 2022) – Excited to get back in the ring, George “El YuYu” Acosta (12-1, 1 KO), of Whittier, California, will face Isaac “Canelito” Avelar (16-4, 10 KOs) of Aguascalientes, Mexico, on July 22, 2022. Acosta vs. Avelar, an 8-round main event bout in the super featherweight division, will headline Thompson Boxing’s “New Blood” series.

Here is what Acosta had to say his recent training camp, his upcoming bout with Avelar, training in Southern California, and more.

On his recent training camp:

"I have worked so hard to get down to 130 lbs., and I feel this training camp is a continuation of many years of hard work to get down to this weight class. I am using advanced aspects of strength and conditioning as well as nutrition to increase my performance. At this point in my career, I feel my experience has my confidence at an all-time high. In this camp, I have had elite training, elite preparation, and elite coaching. I’ve had a great camp and fans will see me peek on fight night.”

On his matchup with his upcoming opponent, Avelar:

"Avelar is a tough opponent that will be coming with everything he's got. He’s fought some very good fighters, so I know he’ll be well prepared going into this fight. But let's be honest, I need to stand-out, so I must perform at a high level to gain the respect of the fans. I want fans to be excited when I fight. I know my opponent will be willing to exchange and take chances, and I'm looking forward to the challenge. The goal of this fight is a stoppage, but I am not going to solely look for it. I want to be recognized as a top prospect in my division and a nice performance against Avelar will accomplish that.”

On what a win will do for his career.

“I want to be a household name, but beyond that I want to be a fighter that fight fans are excited to see. I believe a win here will help me gain some recognition in the super featherweight division. In addition, a victory against Avelar will put me in position to fight for a regional title."

On headlining a Thompson Boxing Card:

"I am very grateful to Thompson Boxing, they stuck with me after I had a loss, and now I am ready to prove them right. The whole team at Thompson Boxing groomed me to be a world-class boxer, and now it is my time to show the world what I’m capable of. This will be my first main event on a Thompson card and I can’t wait to perform at my very best for all the fans that will be there live and watching on the internet.”
