Currently riding the momentum of a string of eight consecutive knockouts, Briggs will face unknown but undefeated 6' 6" Brazilian Luciano Zolyone, 22-0-1 (21 KOs), in a ten-round showdown. Determined to prove his newfound maturity and dedication, the Zolyone fight will mark Briggs' fifth this year. The hard-punching New Yorker scored a KO 1 over Brian Scott last Saturday night, November 26, as the main event of the Heavyweight Slug-Out show in Forth Smith, Arkansas. By facing Briggs in Puerto Rico, Zolyone will be venturing outside the confines of South America for just the second time in his career.
The Calderon/Reyes tilt will be for the WBO Minimumweight Championship, while Torres/Bruseles will be for the vacant WBA International Light Welterweight belt.
