Manuel "The Punisher" Rojas (20-4, 6 KO's) from Dallas, Texas takes on undefeated Albert Bell (17-0) at the Osage Casino in Tulsa Oklahoma today in a scheduled eight round junior lightweight bout.
Rojas has won his last two fights and in his last fight in September of 2020, Rojas got a knockout against Jorge Avila, but he is now making a major step up in competition against Bell.
Rojas tipped the scales on Friday at a trim 132 pounds and Bell weighed in at 132.2 pounds.
The main event features Joe “The Beast” Smith Jr. and Maxim Vlasov for the vacant WBO light heavyweight world title and is going to be one of the best fights of the year.
