ABNER COTTO AIMS TO END 2012 WITH ANOTHER VICTORY THIS SATURDAY AGAINST SERGIO PEREZ ON "SÓLO BOXEO TECATE" FROM CAGUAS, PUERTO RICO

PhilBoxing.com


LOS ANGELES, December 18 - Fresh off of a thrilling 10 round win over Alejandro Rodriguez in November, unbeaten lightweight prospect Abner Cotto will get one more fight in before the end of the year, when he faces Tijuana's Sergio Perez on the Saturday, December 22 edition of TeleFutura's "Sólo Boxeo Tecate" at the Coliseo Roger Mendoza in Caguas, Puerto Rico.

It will be the fourth fight of 2012 for the rising star from Aguas Buenas, who rose from a first round knockdown against Rodriguez last month to win a clear-cut unanimous decision.


Cotto vs. Perez, a 10-round lightweight bout, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions, Miguel Cotto Promotions and H2 Entertainment and sponsored by Cerveza Tecate. On fight night, doors open at 6:00 p.m., the first bell rings at 7:00 p.m. and the TeleFutura broadcast begins at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Tickets priced at $10, $15 and $25 are available for purchase at all Ticket Center locations or by phone at (787) 792-5000.

Unbeaten as a professional, Abner Cotto (15-0, 6 KO's) is one of Puerto Rico's brightest hopes for world title honors in the coming years and after already winning the Puerto Rican and WBC FECARBOX lightweight belts thus far, he is on the right path to championship glory. The owner of 2012 wins over Hevinson Herrera, Juan Montiel and Rodriguez, the 25-year-old cousin of Puerto Rican stars Miguel Cotto and Jose Cotto will perform in front of his local fans one more time this year on Saturday.

A veteran of the sport who has faced off with top competitors and world champions such as Veeraphol Sahaprom, Mauricio Martinez, Martin Honorio and Robbie Peden, Tijuana's Sergio "El Sirenito" Perez (27-13, 18 KO's) has the type of experience that is tough to top on fight night. At 37 years old, Perez has gotten a second wind in his career, winning three in a row including a July victory over Gilberto Sanchez Leon. This weekend, he will test the rising star Cotto.
