Honorio’s last opponent was Antonio “Relentless” Orozco, who defeated Honorio for the interim NABF Junior Super Lightweight title on May 15, 2014. Having spent time out of the ring, the loss has propelled the fighter to come back with a vengeance, ready to demolish his opponent this November 6 at LA FIGHT CLUB.
