Rivera defends regional belt against Sandoval in San Juan 

Yankiel Rivera is set to make his return to the boxing ring this weekend to defend his WBA Continental Americas featherweight title against Victor Sandoval at the Juan Aubin Cruz Abreu Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Rivera claimed his title back in February after a dominant performance against Andy Dominguez in Orlando, showcasing his talent at the professional level for the first time. With a solid background in amateur boxing, the 26-year-old Puerto Rican has been steadily progressing in the world of professional boxing.

His opponent, Sandoval, hails from Mexico and brings a wealth of experience to the ring as a former regional and youth champion. Aware of the challenges that come with fighting on foreign soil, Sandoval plans to leverage his experience and surprise Rivera in his own backyard.

Rivera boasts an impressive record of five wins, no losses, and two knockouts, while Sandoval has 37 wins, four losses, and 23 knockouts to his name. This upcoming match promises to be an exciting clash between two talented fighters with a lot at stake.
