A press conference was held on Wednesday afternoon at Mojitos Restaurant in Miami for Warriors Boxing Promotions’ Saturday, August 18, boxing event entitled “Miami Warfare II” at the MACC at the Doubletree Hotel.
The explosive night of professional boxing will feature a high-impact eight-round junior-welterweight main event between Miami, Florida’s (via Colombia) Breidis “The Khanqueror” Prescott (25-4, 18 KOs) and Francisco “Gato” Figueroa (20-4-1, 13 KOs) of Bronx, New York. In the eight-round super featherweight co-main event will be Miami (via Cuba) power puncher Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy (16-0, 11 KOs) facing Guadalajara, Mexico’s Alejandro “Soma” Rodriguez (14-6, 7 KOs).
Rances Barthelemy (16-0, 11 KOs)
I’m ready and very excited to be fighting in Miami, the city of the Cubans. I am blessed with great promoters Warriors and Bad Dog and have an amazing team behind me. I am working my way up to ultimately becoming a world champion.
Breidis Prescott (25-4, 18 KOs)
I am grateful for another opportunity to showcase my talent. I am training hard to use my power in a smarter style. I am working myself back into the mix and back into a big fight.
Leon Margules, Warriors Boxing
We have eight undefeated kids on this card and they represent much of the talent in this area. It will be an amazing night of boxing and will even surpass the fantastic success of the first Miami Warfare. We have a great main event between two very solid top guys and an undercard packed with the potential for fireworks.
Michael Luzbet of Winner Sports
We are bringing a real boxing event back to Miami. Miami Warfare II will be bigger and better than the last event.
Richard Dobal of Bad Dog Productions
