HUNTER VS. VICENTE TO HEADLINE PHILLY SHOW
Press Release: On Friday night, March 21st, Eric "Outlaw" Hunter will take on Yenifel Vicente in a featherweight bout at Harrahs Philadelphia.
In the eight-round lightweight co-feature, Victor Vasquez of Philadelphia (16-8-1, 7 KOs) will fight Osnel Charles (9-8-1, 1 KO) of Atlantic City, NJ in a rematch of their January, 22, 2011 fight that was won by Charles via six-round majority decision. The show is promoted by Joey Eye Boxing Promotions.
Hunter, of Philadelphia, was a 2004 U.S. Olympic alternate and has a pro record of 17-3 with 9 KOs. He will be looking to redeem himself after he was disqualified against Mike Oliver back on September 13, 2013.
That bout was halted after just 50 seconds when it was ruled that Hunter connected on an illegal punch that sent Oliver to the canvas.
Hunter, who turned pro in 2005, has wins over Tyrell Samuel, Jules Blackwell, Wilshaun Boxley and Jerry Belmontes (then 17-0).
Like Hunter, Vicente will be looking for redemption as he is coming off an eight-round majority decision defeat to Juan Antonio Rodriguez (25-4) on January 10th in Tacoma, Washington. Vicente took that bout, which headlined ESPN2's Friday Night Fights on just five days notice.
The native of Miami, Florida has a record of 25-2-2 with 17 KOs. He has two wins over Mario Rosario, Lioborio Solis, Carlos Fulgencio, former title challenger Francisco Lorenzo, Hector Avila, Luis Zambrano and Jorge Diaz. The bout is scheduled for 10 rounds
