Friday’s Boxeo Telemundo main event will be another edition of the classic boxing rivalry of Mexico vs Puerto Rico. WBA welterweight Fedecentro champion Antonio “Toño” Morán (25-4-1, 18 KOs) vs WBA jr. welterweight Fedecentro champion Emanuel “Pinky” Colón (17-1-1, 16 KOs) will be the third of four consecutive events aired on the network. The site will be the Osceola Heritage Park Events Center in Kissimmee, Florida. Bouts are in the quarantine fight zone with no fans.
It’s a quick return to the ring for Morán who stopped Luis Solis inside the distance just last month on the network. Moran was close to earning a world title fight not long ago. A win over Colón could position him for another world title run.
