“I am very happy to return to fight in my town of Juncos, starring in what will be the return of professional boxing to Puerto Rico,” said Vélez. “I feel good. The training sessions have been excellent. We are working with focus on what this fight will be. I’m preparing for Quintana, to knock out Quintana in six rounds. “
Vélez, who was fighting on national television in the United States three times (Jaime Arboleda, Oscar Valdez and Gabriel Flores) during the restrictive period of the pandemic, is determined to return to the winning route and seek a new opportunity for the world championship.
For his part, Quintana, who is the son of former WBO welterweight world champion Carlos ‘El Indio’ Quintana, mentioned that “this is my era, my moment. I’ve been working like never before.

“We are going to keep the Juncos Coliseum,” said Rolón. “I know the great talent that Iglesias has. Like me, he comes hungry and wants to shine. We are both risking our undefeated. I am training for the fight of my life. I’m going to leave it all in that ring. It will be six intense rounds, if it goes the distance. Nobody can miss this fight, because we are going to steal the show ”.
