The long awaited pro debut of Puerto Rican prospect Victor Vasquez, 1-0 (1 KO), dazzled the crowd in spectacular fashion with an array of boxing skill, hand speed, and raw power en route to a 2 nd round TKO. The Philadelphia native brought the crowd to their feet as he sent Shane Lewis reeling into the ropes from a four punch combination that left had the battered Lewis bloody and staggering. As the doctors waved off the fight, the pro Vasquez crowd in went into an uproar. It is estimated that hundreds of Victor Vazquez’ family, friends and loyal followers made the trip from Philadelphia to Reading PA in order to support the young athletic lightweight
“It was an honor to put on a show for my people. The support my family, friends and my people showed me was unreal. It was a dream come true,” explained the humble and gracious Vasquez. “I worked very hard to get here and I am willing to do whatever it takes to get to the next level.”
Team Vasquez expects to fight at least 2-3 more times this year and expects to appear on major under cards. The ability to draw a crowd from the Puerto Rican community is impressively apparent with Vasquez.
