“I’m so excited for an opportunity to fight in the U.S. again and I plan on making the most of it,” said Uzcategui. “I will leave everything in the ring and give the fans a great show in San Antonio.”

The son of famous power-puncher Julian “The Hawk” Jackson, the 28-year-old and his brother John were both 2008 Olympians for their native Virgin Islands. As a pro, Jackson fought primarily in the Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic and South America before making his pro debut in December of 2014. He owns victories over Jonathan Nelson, Nicolas Dario Lopez and Crispulo Javier Andino. He enters this fight on a nine-fight knockout streak.
Born in Venezuela, Uzcategui now fights out of Baja California, Mexico. The hard-hitter made a name for himself fighting in Mexico and knocking out seven of his first eight opponents. The 24-year-old will fight in the U.S. for a second time on October 6 and picked up his most recent victory in February by knocking out Daniel Eduardo Yocupicio in the first round.
