TOQUI 121897048WBA interim super featherweight champion Bryan Vasquez will be defending his title this Saturday against experienced Mexican Jorge Lacierva, in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, and if the bout looks anything like the Thursday press conference, fans can expect some heated action.

Vasquez, age 24, is from San Jose, Costa Rica. He holds a 28-0 record, with 14 KOs. Lacierva, age 34, with a 41-8-6 record (27 KOs) had a title crack against Billy Dib last summer.

Things got violent during the press conference held Thursday, when the Mexican fighter insulted the champion, and then threw a punch at Vasquez' jaw. He immediately responded with a blow to Lacierva's eye. Guillermo Brito from Zanfer Promotions stepped in to separate the fighters.

Vasquez later said during a phone interview: "This won't end here, it will end in the ring. I will show him there's a reason why I am the champion and I will continue to be the champion. He is scared and this is the way he shows it."

Vasquez and Lacierva will be the co-main event to "Unfinished Business," while the main event will be the rematch between Omar "Businessman" Chavez and Jorge "Maromerito" Paez, sons of Mexican boxing legends Julio Cesar Chavez and Jorge "Maromero" Paez respectively.

"Maromerito" Paez won by MD when he faced Chavez in November of 2011;this time they are fighting for the vacant WBC International Silver light middleweight title.

The last time I saw Bryan Vasquez spar, the opponent hit him cleanly after the bell. Bell sounded. Vasquez looked at his opponent, opponent looked back. Vasquez dropped his hands, and the opponent took the opportunity to hit him with a straight right hand to the chest. The opponent didn't get past the midpoint of the next round. For the record, the opponent is an undefeated pro with over 300 amateur fights. Happened at Mayweather's Gym in Las Vegas about a month ago. Lacierva sucker punched the wrong guy.

I have been watching Bryan for the past few years and as Dino said this is not a guy you want coming to the ring mad, this fight will not last long
