After recording another first round knockout against late sub Esteban Hillman Tababary (25-16-2, 20 KOs) last Saturday in Bolivia, Bronco Billy Wright (48-4, 38 KOs), who defended his WBC Latino heavyweight title, looks to land a big fight before the summer ends. Currently rated WBC #16, Bronco Billy Wright is ready for a top level opponent.

“Right now I’m at a stage in my career where I feel I’m ready to challenge anyone in the top 10.” said Bronco Billy Wright. “I’m knocking out guys with winning records and I’m staying active, fighting constantly. I’m very grateful to the WBC for honoring my ranking. They’ve sanctioned all my title defenses as I hold their FECARBOX, Latino and United States (USNBC) Silver titles. I’ve delivered on every fight by knocking everyone out that they sanctioned. My goal is to to land a big fight before the year ends and I’m counting on the WBC to honor my ranking, forcing someone in the top 15 to fight me.”

Adding another first round KO to his record, Bronco Billy, who hasn’t tasted defeat since 1998, is inching closer to breaking the all-time record for first round knockouts held by Shannon Briggs at 33. Currently Wright has 29 first round KOs.

“I believe if I continue to win and win impressively, someone in the top ten will take me on.” Bronco Billy Wright continued. “If not I’ll just have to keep knocking out everyone in my path till they accept my challenge. I’m going to stay busy regardless. This 50-year old man can’t be that scary can he? My message to all these young bucks is…Let’s get it on!
