One of the hardest things for a young, hungry fighter to do is to sit on the sidelines.
After a disappointing string of bouts falling through, 19-year-old Milton “El Santo” Santiago is returning to the hunt on June 28th at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center in PA. On “Toe-to-Toe Tuesday”, Santiago seeks to extend his undefeated rip through the welterweight division.
Santiago defends his 13-0 (3KO) record against hard-punching veteran Osumanu Akaba [32-10 (25KO)]. Akaba, a Ghanaian southpaw hailing from Alabama, will try to use his ring experience to counter the speed and technical prowess of the younger Santiago.
Doors open at 5:00PM, with more details at the Sands Casino website.
