Promoter Top Rank has announced that the former two-weight world champion, Puerto Rican Jose Pedraza (28-3-0, 13 KO), will not perform as he originally expected until the end of this year.
“I think everyone is happy with his performance against Molina, – said the vice president of the promotion Carl Moretti. – He has proven that he can compete with any of the leaders at 140 pounds. , Alex Saucedo and Arnold Barbosa.
We do not know yet with whom we will bring him. We must wait for news of the Ramirez-Taylor fight. Besides, Saucedo and Barbosa will soon fight. I don’t think Jose will perform this year. “
In his last bout in early September, Pedraza outboxed tough American middle peasant Javier Molina (22-3-0, 9 KO) after ten rounds.
