Luck just can't find Humberto Soto. Not this year at least. After having one fight cancelled in May due to his opponent not being able to make weight, and having to replace his June 27th opponent Ray Beltran in a last minute scramble due to Beltran failing a drug test, Soto has been scrapped from the June 27th card altogether due to a knee injury in a report by Boxingscene. "Soto is not going to fight," said Gomez. "He messed up his knee jogging on Tuesday. He was training. He got X-rays and he has strained knee ligaments, and the doctor told him he needs to rest it for a month."
Soto has been able to rebuild his career in the last seven years having gone 20-1 since 2009 with his only loss coming at the deadly hands of Lucas Matthysse. There's no word on how long it will take for Soto's knee to heal.
