Promoters Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing and Carlos Gonzalez of Best Boxing have announced the undercard for their blockbuster “LAS VEGAS IN PANAMA II” show at the beautiful Megapolis Convention Center in the Hard Rock Hotel in Panama City, Panama, on Saturday, August 10.
Fighting in support of the three world-title fights that top the bill, including the return of superb Panamanian WBA Bantamweight Super Champion Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno (33-2-1, 12 KOs) making the eleventh defense of his 118-lb belt against Colombian southpaw William Urina (24-2, 20 KOs) in a 12-round battle; future boxing superstar Oscar Escandon (22-0, 15 KOs) vying for the interim WBA World super bantamweight championship against Panama’s former world champion Nehomar Cermeno (21-5-1, 13 KOs), and Venezuela’s WBA female featherweight Champion Ogleidis Suarez in the first defense of her title in a rematch against Colombia’s Liliana “La Tigresa” Palmera (21-10-3, 15 KOs) will be several intriguing bouts between tough South American warriors.
The main supporting bout will be an intriguing 10-round welterweight duel between two solid contenders in Azael “Turbo” Cosio (16-2-2, 13 KOs) of Santa Marta, Panama, and Devis “El Felino” Caceres (13-2, 9 KOs).
Remaining seats for “LAS VEGAS IN PANAMA II” are priced at $100, $200 and $300 USD ringside and are available at all Ticket Plus outlets as well as the Hard Rock Hotel.
Cosio was last seen winning the interim WBC Latino welterweight title with an impressive TKO 9 over respectable Colombian contender Jose David Mosquera in March. Since losing his pro debut in 2009, Caceres has only lost one fight and won his last four by way of brutal knockout.
Also scheduled for appearances on this stacked night of world-class boxing will be multiple world champion Roberto “La Araña” Vasquez (32-5-2, 22 KOs) from San Francisco, Panama, who will stay busy in a dangerous eight-round bantamweight battle against power-punching veteran Walberto Ramos (18-6-2, 12 KOs) of Monitos, Colombia.
