Two-time Puerto Rican Olympian Jeyvier Cintron will defend his WBO Latino title at 115 pounds against Nicaraguan Marvin Solano in a fight to be held on Wednesday, October 31, during the WBO Convention in Panama.
“We have Jeyvier facing another experienced rival like Solano and he will be defending the belt he won last month, looking for a better position in the WBO ranking. Jeyvier’s fight is one of the main ones on the card we are working on the WBO Convention in Panama, which will have other good bouts,” said Peter Rivera, vice president of PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP), and who works Cintron’s career.
Cintron (8-0, 4 kos), who was recently ranked #9 by the WBO at 115 pounds, will expose his belt against Solano (21-2, 8 kos) in a 10 rounds bout. The Puerto Rican, who is signed by promoter Top Rank, was crowned WBO Latino champ at 115 pounds with a wide unanimous decision win over Mexican Francisco Alonso Melendez (15-3, 13 kos) on September 1, Contron also holds the WBO Youth world title at 118 pounds.
After his participation in the 2016 Olympics, Cintron, trained by former double world champion Ivan “Iron Boy” Calderon, made his professional debut in April 2017, year in which he fought just two times, but in 2018 he has six bouts, two of them for titles.
