Former Olympians Jeyvier Cintrón and Víctor Bisbal this Friday
The successful series “A Puño Limpio” will end 2018 this Friday, December 7, with two important matches when former Olympians Jeyvier Cintrón and Víctor Bisbal feature in separate bouts in a show that will be held at the Rubén Zayas Montañez Coliseum in Trujillo Alto in a presentation of PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP) in association with Spartan Boxing.
“We returned in August with A Puño Limpio after several years and it has been a success in Trujillo Alto and we concluded 2018 with two former Olympians, Jeyvier Cintrón and Víctor Bisbal, in important fights for their future, while we continue with our commitment to give an alternative to the young prospects in this scenario,” said promoter Iván Rivera, president of PRBBP. “Once again, we thank the administration of Trujillo Alto and its mayor José Luis Cruz Cruz for the support provided.”
The main event of the night will have Jeyvier Cintron (8-0, 4 kos), the two time Puerto Rican Olympian (2012 and 2016) and Top Rank company fighter, defending his WBO Latino title at 115 pounds against Nicaraguan Marvin Solano (21-2, 8 kos) to 10 rounds. Cintron, who is ranked 11 by the WBO at 115 pounds, will fight for the seventh time this year.
“I am very happy to fight again in Puerto Rico. We are training to give another great demonstration and continue my road to the world title,” said the Bayamon native, who is trained by former double world champion Ivan “Iron Boy” Calderón.
In the co-main event, the 2004 Puerto Rican Olympian, Víctor Bisbal (22-3, 16 kos), returns to the ring after two years inactive to face the Brazilian Edson Roberto Dos Santos (30-3-2, 24 kos) in a heavyweight division fight scheduled to 10 rounds.
“We are back in the ring with another opportunity that we are going to take advantage of to get a world fight later. We hope to be successful and to have good fights in the future,” said Bisbal.
The rest of the action will be in four round bouts with Calynton Lauren Jr. (2-0, 2 kos), of the Virgin Islands, facing Kenny Cruz Carrasquillo (3-2-1, 2 kos) in the heavyweights; Pablo de Jesús (3-0, 3 kos) vs. Ronald Quintana (0-1-1) at 160 pounds; Yasiel Ortiz (2-0) will face debutant Jose Otero at 122 pounds; Gabriel Roig Méndez (2-0) will face debutant David Reyes at 112 pounds, and Alfredo “Salsero” Cruz (2-0, 2 kos) will face Kenny Julián Agosto (0-4) at 118 pounds.
WOMEN’S FIGHT IS FIRST ANNOUNCED FOR WINDHAM, NH BOXING EVENT
Windham, NH [December 4, 2018] – Boston Boxing Promotions has announced the first fight for its next event scheduled to take place Friday, January 25, 2019 at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire. Revere, Massachusetts’ Kimberly Wabik (0-0-1) will return to the Castleton to take on Florida’s Britain Hart (2-3, 1 KO) in a four-round female super featherweight fight.
Wabik, fresh off an entertaining and competitive fight that was ruled a draw against Springfield’s Liz Humphries in November at the Castleton in her pro debut, will be dropping down a weight division for her fight against Hart. In November, she competed in the 135 pound lightweight division. In January, she will compete in the 130 pound super featherweight division.
“I am stoked and honored to fight such a fighter with such significant skills and abilities,” said Wabik.
“Her background and experience show she is a very tough woman in the pro division. From this last fight, I’ve learned not to leave it to the judges. I expect a brawl from a very dangerous woman,” Wabik added.
Britain Hart, who now resides in Tampa, Florida, is a fighter through and through. In five professional boxing matches, she has fought in five different states and recently she competed on Pay-Per-View television in a resurgence of bare knuckle boxing against former UFC fighter Bec Rawlings losing a close split decision.
“I am more than amped to be fighting in New Hampshire as I am definitely a traveler and make it a goal to fight in all 50 states. This will be a first time there and my 7th state added to the list! I hope there are Boston Bruins fans there and I can win them over that way too!” Said an enthusiastic Hart.
“I am expecting this fight to be simple and to the point. Kim’s last fight was a draw, which is a good lesson to not leave it up to the judges. I’ve had that lesson learned the hard way as well with my last fight ending in my defeat by split decision. I am going to be in her backyard, so I plan to learn from my lessons and execute exactly that. No hard feelings, it’s business and my chance to prove that I have learned and have growth in this fighting style. My heart has been in boxing but now is the time to show why they shouldn’t take it away from me,” Hart added.
This will be just the second women’s fight in Boston Boxing Promotions’ history.
