PhilBoxing.com




LAS VEGAS, NV (August 9, 2022) – Top Rank's undefeated super featherweight rising star, Andres “Savage” Cortes (17-0, 10 KOs), squares off against Abraham Montoya (20-3, 14 KOs), this Saturday, August 13, 2022, at the Resorts World Las Vegas. Cortes vs. Montoya, an 8-round bout, will stream live and exclusively on ESPN+.

Teofimo Lopez (16-1, 12 KOs), the former unified and lineal lightweight champion, will face Mexican veteran Pedro “Roca” Campa (34-1-1, 23 KOs), in the 10-round main event. Promoted by Top Rank, tickets starting at $40 are on sale now and can be purchased at Etix.com.

Cortes, who is riding an impressive 3-fight knockout streak, talks about his recent training camp, his matchup with Montoya, and more.

On his recent training camp in Las Vegas:

"This has been one of my better camps. The sparring we got was very tough. I was in there with many different styles, guys that can bang and guys that can box. My strength and conditioning is right on point and I feel stronger going into this fight. These final days of cutting weight will be smooth because of all the hard work I put in this camp.”

On his matchup with Abraham Montoya:

"Montoya is a very tough opponent who has never been stopped. He’s been in the ring with some notable names, so I know he has the mental capacity to fight under the bright lights. I will have to make the proper adjustments to get him out of there. I’m prepared to go the distance, but the goal will be to knock him out.”

On what a win will do for his career:

"A victory against Montoya will put me in position to fight a big name and catapult me into 10-round bouts. The super featherweight division stacked with talent and a win gets me closer to fight them all. In due time I’ll be knocking on the door of a world title shot, which is the ultimate goal at the end of the day.”

On fighting at home in Las Vegas:

"Fighting on this card means a lot to me because I have so many of my family and friends that will be in attendance watching. My last three fights have been knockouts, with the last two being here in Vegas. I looking to keep this knockout streak alive here in my hometown. I want to thank my promoter Top Rank for putting me on this card.”
