Hugo Centeno in action Saturday night on Cancio-Juarez undercard

Unbeaten in 13 professional bouts, Oxnard’s Hugo “The Boss” Centeno will have his local fans out in force at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. this Saturday night when he takes on Rahman Yusubov in a six round junior middleweight co-feature on the TeleFutura broadcast headlined by Andrew “Chango” Cancio vs. Rocky Juarez.

With an impressive record of 13-0 with 7 knockouts in a professional career that began in 2009, 21-year-old Hugo Centeno is moving along at a steady pace and getting better with each fight as he turns back challenger after challenger. Already 2-0 in 2012 with wins over Octavio Narvaez and Gerardo Cesar Prieto, the former amateur star is ready to begin his summer with a bang when he faces Rahman Yusubov (8-7, 6 KO’s) of Baku, Azerbaijan.
