Do you believe in second chances? whether you do, or you don’t, mercurial talent 🇵🇷Felix Verdejo (27-1-0, 17KO👊), after a run of complacency that stagnated his progression at the professional level, has finally re-dedicated himself and his life to the sport. Guided by his new Head-Trainer Ismael Salas, and fueled by his hiccups along the way, Verdejo impressed viewers the way he dismantled 🇺🇸Will Madera inside of 1 round. Felix, at the age of 27, still has time on his side to get it right, and has new life as a contender.
Facing Verdejo on Saturday night will be fellow Lightweight contender 🇯🇵Masayoshi Nakatanki (18-1-0, 12KO👊) of Japan. Now you may recognize Nakatani from when he fought Teofimo Lopez before making his mark as a Champion, and gave Teofimo a few fits along the way with his range.
BECOMING THE REAL STAR OF THE SHOW
Also on the fight card is intriguing rising Super-Middleweight 🇵🇷Edgar “The Chosen One” Berlanga (15-0-0, 15KO👊), who has captured the imagination of fans, becoming the talk around barbershops, and watercoolers. He will look to continue his first round KO steak, or better yet, to get some time in to show some extra wrinkles in his arsenal.
