JUAN CARLOS ABREU HAS A VERY TOUGH ASSIGNMENT THIS WEEKEND

Press Release: Dominican welterweight Juan Carlos “Merengue” Abreu (24-4-1, 19 KOs) is in for a tough test when he faces Russia's Alexander Besputin (11-0, 9 KOs) on December 8th at New York City's Madison Square Garden. The ESPN+ app will broadcast the fight, which will be part of the lightweight unification show featuring José Pedraza against Vasyl Lomachenko.  In his last appearance, Abreu lost by unanimous decision in a competitive fight against contender Egidijus Kavaliauskas of Lithuania. 


"I know what it feels like to face the promoter’s fighter and lose unfairly. I’m in the same situation this Saturday, but that doesn’t take away my dream of being great in this sport. Let’s do this,” said Abreu.

Abreu said, "I feel very well prepared for this fight. Focused and motivated for victory. It would be very important because it is at a huge event, and many people all over the world will see it.” 

Abreu is trained by Chiro Perez in Florida, and managed by Spartan Boxing Club. The Dominican continued, "Besputin is strong, and he is protected by Top Rank. I know I have to do extra work than I normally do for the win, and I have the experience to beat him or any other boxer. I am ready to win, and I hope the judges are fair to my performance."
