TONIGHT at The Sands Bethlehem Event Center, undefeated super lightweight, Milton “El Santo” Santiago (13-0, 3 KO’s) will be in action for the first time this year as he takes on battle-tested veteran Osumanu Akaba in eight round bout that will be part of the undercard of a Premier Boxing Champions card.
Santiago of Philadelphia, PA will be in action for the first time since his eight-round majority decision over Angel Hernandez on December 29, 2015 at the same venue where tonight’s contest will originate.

Akaba has faced world champion Ricky Burns plus world title challengers Jeffrey Mathebula & Edner Cherry.
Below is a video interview with Santiago, who will talk about the fight and having his father back in his corner as the lead trainer.
