Next fight of Felix Verdejo is not determined yet.
Top Rank is preparing a reserve opponent for Vasyl Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KOs) in case of the failure of negotiations on the unification bout with Teofimo Lopez (15-0, 12 KOs). The fight is scheduled for October 3, but the American does not agree to the proposed financial terms ($1.25 million).
Felix Verdejo (27-1, 17 KOs) scored a KO win in round one over previously undefeated Will Madera (15-1-3, 8 KOs) in the Top Rank boxing evening in Las Vegas. The duel officially ended one second before the end of the starting round.
WBO #1 lightweight Felix “El Diamante” Verdejo (21-0, 15 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Oliver Flores (27-4-2, 17 KOs) on Friday night in front of 7,143 boxing fans at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Verdejo, returning to the ring for the first time since a bad motorcycle accident last August, controlled most the fight against the defensive-minded Flores. Flores finally woke up in round eight and started taking it to Verdejo the rest of the way. It was too little, too late for Flores, however, as Verdejo won 99-91, 96-94, 98-92.
