Columbia’s former super middleweight champion, Alejandro Berrio (32-5, 29 KOs), returns to the ring this Friday, June 15, when he faces fellow countryman Evert Bravo (18-4-1, 14 KOs) in the 10-round main event at the Coliseo Cubierto Elias Chegwin in Barranquilla, Colombia.
Berrio has big wins against current WBO super middleweight titlest, Robert Stieglitz (42-2, 23 KOs) and American Yusaf Mack (30-4-2, 17 KOs), giving both fighters their first losses as professionals.
“I know I can beat anyone in the world if I’m 100 percent focused,” said Berrio. “I’ve proven that I’m a fighter that can compete on the championship stage. I’m looking to knock out my opponent and move on to a big fight, hopefully a world title shot.”
“Berrio has been out of the ring for over a year and my goal is to get him back into title contention,” saidBoxing 360 promoter Mario Yagobi. “He’s a powerful puncher and is currently riding a six-fight winning streak. He has talent and he’s hungry to get back on top. A big opportunity lies ahead if he can win this fight.”
