On July 9, undefeated Top Rank prospect, Andy “El Tiburon” Vences (15-0, 10 KOs) will look to add another win to his unblemished record, as he faces off against Moises Delgadillo (15-15-2, 8 KOs) of Guadalajara.
“El Tiburon,” otherwise known as The Shark, has been scaling through the ranks of the lightweight division hoping to keep outdoing himself with each fight.
Delgadillo will look to avoid being the Sharks 16th victim with an upset win at the Tachi Palace Casino.
“Moises Delgadillo is a durable opponent and I know he will come to fight to try and win,” said Vences.
“I think that I will be able to display my skills well in this fight.”
Vences has had a busy last few days from media day workouts, to a photoshoot with the WBC, and making his first appearance on ESPN Deportes “A Los Golpes.”
Vences is not taking his opponent lightly whatsoever and is by no means overlooking him.
“I am ready for whoever Top Rank is willing to give me. I am not in a position to call out anyone right now. Right now it’s Delgadillo and I have to rise to the occasion.”
Vences is coming off a unanimous-decision victory over Yardley Suarez, which broke five-fight knockout streak. In regards to a prediction for this fight Vences replied with something fight fans will love.
“Hey man, I’m a shark. I’m going in for the kill,” said Vences.
With a lot of competition in the lightweight division, it’s only a matter a time before this prospect gets a shot at one of the top names boxing has to offer.
