22-year-old Dominican bantamweight prospect Junior Almonte (11-0, 8 KOs) is facing countryman Angelo Munoz (18-15, 13 KOs) in Santiago, Dominican Republic, on March 31th. The baby-faced Almonte, nicknamed “Bombita” (Little Bomb) is a favorite to win the Prospect of the Year award.
In another bout, Armin Mrkanovic (9-3, 4 KOs) of Bosnia will go against Dominican veteran Wilmer Mejia (22-10-3, 16 KOs) for the WBA Fedecaribe cruiserweight title.
Also, in a clash of unbeaten cruiserweights, Sanderson Diaz (11-0, 8 KOs) and Johnny Encarnacion (5-0, 3 KOs) will face off.
Boxer/beauty queen Dyana Vargas (8-0, 5 KOs), a crowd darling, will also be on the 14 bout card.
