WBO Latino Bout: Espinoza vs. Vargas
Miami, Fla: After close to a decade Telemundo’s popular boxing series, Boxeo Telemundo Ford returns to South Florida. At one time the Boxeo Telemundo series was being broadcasted LIVE from South Florida at least six times a year. All Star Boxing’s President Tuto Zabala Jr. teamed up with Heavyweight Factory President, Kris Lawrence to return the popular series to the most iconic boxing venue in South Florida, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
Headlining this historic return ranked #2 WBO Bantamweight Latin Champion, Ricardo “Hindu” Espinoza, 21-2-18 KO’s of Tijuana, Mexico defends his title in a ten round battle against Colombia’s latest undefeated prospect, the heavy handed Yeison Vargas, 17-0-12 KO’s. Vargas is looking to spoil Espinoza’s Hard Rock boxing party.
Espinoza is coming off an impressive second round stoppage of then #3 WBO ranked bantamweight Daniel “El Alacran” Lozano during Boxeo Telemundo summer series.
“I’m prepared to defend my title at all cost, I earned this title. I want to show all my fans that I’m worthy of a title opportunity after this fight” said Ricardo “Hindu” Espinoza, WBO Latin Champion.
“I know that Hindu Espinoza thinks he’s just going to come here to the Hard Rock and run right through me. I got bad news for him. The tables will turn on him come Friday night” said Yeison Vargas, undefeated prospect.
Espinoza vs Vargas will air LIVE on the Telemundo network this Friday at 11:35pm. Check your local listings.
