Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico – After a debut in Puerto Rican professional boxing on October 7 before a full house at the Rubén Zayas Coliseo in Trujillo Alto, promotional company ‘La 22 Sports’ will celebrate the second edition of its series ‘La 22 Sports: The Next Generation’, which will take shape on Saturday, February 3, on the same Rubén Zayas field in the aforementioned municipality.

“The support we received in our first edition was a success because we were able to unite everything needed, that is, quality of the fights, scenery, logistics of excellence to create a family atmosphere and the long-term commitment to leave a great mark on boxing,” said Omar Santa Rosa, executive director of La 22 Sports.

In the main event, the new acquisition of Japanese promotional company Kameda Promotions, Trujillo’s Jean Carlos ‘Lobo’ Torres (21-1, 16 KOs), pride of the La Gloria neighborhood, will be fighting against the undefeated Venezuelan from Ivan Calderon’s squad, Raul ‘Bazooka’ Ugueto (12-0, 11 KOs).

The fight is agreed upon for ten rounds, for a World Boxing Organization regional belt at welterweight (147 pounds), where the winner will be ranked in the top fifteen.

Torres just defeated Japanese prospect Riku Nagahama by unanimous decision in a fight held in Osaka, Japan on August 11.

Ugueto, for his part, has just obtained his first distance victory, by majority decision, against his compatriot Adrián Pérez on August 5 in Caracas.

The co-feature will be a duel of undefeated lightweights (135 pounds), when the always exciting Carlos ‘El Pavo’ Morales (4-0, 4 KOs), of Cupey Alto, faces Onix Sánchez (2-0, 2 KOs), from Las Piedras, in a six-round fight.

The card will feature 10 fights, including the professional debut of urban genre singer Karla Rouse Dávila, better known as ‘Karly Rou’, who will be campaigning at 122 pounds.
