August Boxing Card Features a Family Affair

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii Sports) -

Primetime boxing returns to the American Bank Center August 7th, and the card will feature some brotherly love.

Longtime local Jerry Belmontes will be featured in the main event against Abner Cotto. Belmontes will be looking to snap a skid of losing four his last six matches.

Belmontes' younger brother Steve will be making his pro debut earlier in the night. Steve says that he's enjoyed learning and training under older brother Jerry, and it's time to put those lessons to use and make a name for himself.

The undercard will also feature Kingsville's "Lil' Oscar" Cantu, who will be in his first fight since winning the WBC USNBC Super Featherweight title back in March.

The Cantu and Jerry Belmontes fights will be featured live on Fox Sports 1.
