Leon Margules, President of Warriors Boxing, wishes to congratulate his fighters, Colombian bomber Breidis Prescott (26-4, 20 KOs), future Puerto Rican star Roberto Acevedo (6-0, 3 KOs) and Cuban super featherweight sensation Rances "Kid Blast" Barthelemy (17-0, 11 KOs), for their victories Saturday night at the MACC at the Doubletree Hotel in Miami, Florida, and live on Solo Boxeo Tecate.
Never in a bad fight, super lightweight Prescott went to war with Bronx native Francisco "Gato" Figueroa to win by unanimous decision in the night's main event. Prescott dropped Figueroa twice in the first round and looked to be moving in for the finish, but Figueroa fought on gamely and even managed to drop Prescott in the fifth.
In the end, Prescott's heavier punches were the difference by scores of 79-71, 77-73 and 78-71.
