GOLDEN BOY LIVE! TO FEATURE JERRY BELMONTES VS. ABNER COTTO
ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 7 AT AMERICAN BANK CENTER IN
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS LIVE ON FOX SPORTS 1 & FOX DEPORTES

Corpus Christi, TX (June 17) – Fresh from his spirited world title challenge defeat against Omar Figueroa in April, “The Corpus Christi Kid” Jerry Belmontes will make his case for a rematch with his rival when he returns to his Texas hometown to face Puerto Rico’s Abner Cotto in the 10-round junior lightweight main event of FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes’ Golden Boy Live! on Thursday, August 7 at American Bank Center.

Also featured on the card will be a stacked lineup of Texas’ finest that will be looking to put on a show for their local fans including Austin’s KeAndre Gibson who will face an opponent to be named in the eight-round junior welterweight co-main event. Also taking to the ring will be Kingsville’s unbeaten Oscar Cantu, who meets San Antonio’s Joseph Rios in an eight-round bantamweight bout that will open the televised portion of the card.

Also featured at American Bank Center will be San Antonio’s Jairo Castaneda (5-0, 2 KOs) and Robstown’s Greg Gutierrez (9-2, 2 KOs) and Robert Vela (8-0-1, 5 KOs). The first four non-televised bouts will feature Ernest Reyna (4-1), Julian Gilden (4-0, 4 KOs) and Jeremy Longoria (4-3, 1 KO) making their respective returns to the ring.

Unbeaten in four fights in his hometown of Corpus Christi, Jerry Belmontes (19-4, 5 KOs) will fight in front of his home fans for the first time since April of 2013 when he steps into the ring on August 7. The bout against Cotto will also be the 25-year-old’s first since his April 26 showdown with amateur rival Omar Figueroa, and in that fight Belmontes gave a supreme effort, only to lose a disputed 12-round split decision. Vowing to get back into the title hunt, “The Corpus Christi Kid” wants to make a statement against Cotto.

Looking to get back in the win column after a hard-fought loss to Francisco Vargas in March, Caguas, Puerto Rico’s Abner Cotto (17-2, 8 KOs) has the style to trouble any fighter at 130 pounds, including Belmontes. The cousin of recently crowned WBC Middleweight World Champion Miguel Cotto, 26-year-old Abner is determined to one day bring another title to the family and his first step is defeating Belmontes on August 7.

Fresh from a spectacular fourth round knockout of John Nater in May, 24-year-old Keandre Gibson (10-0-1, 5 KOs) will be fighting in front of Texas fans once again when he battles an opponent to be named. A versatile prospect that many believe will be ruling the junior welterweight division one day, Gibson has won three of his last five fights by knockout, and he’ll be bringing the thunder again in Corpus Christi.

A multi-talented boxer who is making a name for himself on the Texas scene, 23-year-old Oscar Cantu (7-0, 1 KO) will seek his eighth straight win when he meets 32-year-old Joseph Rios (13-9-2, 4 KOs) on August 7. The current WBC USNBC Super Flyweight Champion, Cantu is coming off of an eight-round win over Felipe Castaneda in March. Rios is no stranger to fighting unbeaten opposition, as five of his last six foes had not lost a bout. Rios put losses on three of those five opponents’ records, making him a dangerous test for Cantu.
