“With great enthusiasm we are announcing the return of boxing to Puerto Rico,” said the President of Universal Promotions, Javier Bustillo.

In this event we are coming with all of the necessary health protocols, ready to present an exciting world-class night. Once again, we are counting on the great support of the mayor of Juncos, Alfredo “Papo” Alejandro, who did not hesitate to accept our proposal and bring this event to his city.”
