I’m going to be a headache for the Mexicans!

Talk about Mexico vs. Puerto Rico andn a ring is to talk about the biggest and fiercest rivalry in the history of boxing; simply and simply there


Talk about Mexico vs. Puerto Rico andn a ring is to talk about the biggest and fiercest rivalry in the history of ; simply and simply there is no boxing grip with more passion and rivalry than the one between a Mexican and a Puerto Rican.

Julio César Chávez vs. Héctor Macho Camacho, Oscar de la Hoya vs. Félix Tito Trinidad, Miguel Cotto vs. Antonio Margarito, José Luis Ramírez vs. Edwin Rosario, Jorge Travieso Arce vs. Wilfredo Papito Vázquez Jr. and of course Salvador Sánchez vs. Wilfredo Gómez, are some of the memorable boxing battles between Aztecs and Puerto Ricans, which make clear to us the greatness and importance of these boxing wars.

In these countries boxing is a religion; however, sadly in recent years Puerto Rico has not shone like in the past and this has meant that the old rivalry does not have that flavor of the past, since lately Mexico has been much superior in the stringing. Prospects like Félix Diamante Verdejo, in whom the hope of Puerto Rican boxing was pinned, not only failed to be crowned, but ended up tragically in jail, as is the case of the boxer from the neighborhood of Las Gladiolas on Isla del Encanto, where he is imprisoned.

Not everything is negative in Puerto Rican boxing, there are many fighters who have been walking steadily, like . At just 19 years old, with a perfect record of 19 wins with nine anesthetized, the man born in San Juan and living in Sunrise, Florida, has a very promising future ahead of him.

This August 13, Xander will face the veteran Elías Espadas in the framework of the return of Teófimo López, who curiously also collides with a dangerous Mexican like Pedro La Roca Campa.

The fight between Xander and Spades It is the clear example of the Mexico vs. Puerto Rico rivalry, an announced “war”. Born in Mérida, Yucatán, 31 years ago, Espadas walks with a record of 22 wins, four losses and 15 knockouts and could be the toughest test in the career of the Puerto Rican star, who will undoubtedly take this fight very seriously.

Recently Xander Zayas He told me with the deepest respect, the following: “I am going to be a huge headache for the Mexicans and for anyone in my division.”

These words came from the bottom of his heart and he was completely determined and determined to become, not only the next star of Puerto Rico, but also seeks to establish himself as one of the most important faces in world boxing and this means sweeping his division and if Mexicans get in the way… much better!

I close by telling you not to lose track of Xander Zayas, who can become a headache for the Mexicans and for anyone in his division.
