Undefeated welterweight Janelson Figueroa Bocachica returns to action tonight when he takes on Gabor Gorbics in a scheduled eight-round bout at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center.

“It’s great to see my name on those lists. I am feel that I am one of best prospects out there, and on Friday night, I will show again that I am worthy of that, and a future champion.”
In Gorbics, he is facing his most experienced foe, as the Hungarian resident has a record of 26-16 with 16 knockouts. Gorbics has been in the ring with fighters like Liam Williams, Daniyar Yeleussinov and Spike O’Sullivan, and Bocachica feels he will do better than those experienced fighters.
“I want to be able to win in an more impressive fashion then they did. I feel that will be making statement.”
