The bout is scheduled for eight rounds in the featherweight division. The fight will not be televised on HBO.
"I feel very well. I do not know if that maturity has come into my life in boxing, but I feel good, "said Vazquez Jr. "This is an eight-round bout to come me well and keep me active. It came with a new team and we are ready for whatever comes, "he added.
