(SAN ANTONIO) – In eight of his wins, Weslaco’s Brandon Figueroa has defeated his opponents six times via technical knockout.
Tonight, Figueroa (8-0) will put those knockouts to the test as his opponent has a history of providing some of his own as well.
Figueroa will take on Puerto Rico’s Adalberto Zorrilla in a Super Bantamweight bout as a part of the Fabian Maidana and Jorge Maysonet Premiere Boxing Champions fight tonight at the Scottish Rite Auditorium in San Antonio.
Zorrilla will definitely be Figueroa’s toughest challenge to date as he enters their fight with a 7-1 record. And while his record is an impressive one, the most impressive thing about Zorrilla is the fact that all of his wins came by either knockout or technical knockout.
Tonight’s fights will be televised on NBC Sports Network and commence at 7:30 p.m.
