Unbeaten Janelson Figueroa Bocachica and Mark Reyes Jr. will square off on February 17, it was announced on Wednesday afternoon. The 10-round bout will take place at Mohegan Sun Casino, in Uncasville, Connecticut, and will headline a four-bout “ShoBox” card (Showtime, 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT). The clash between Figueroa and Reyes will pit two hard-punching prospects with the winner taking a significant step forward in a competitive welterweight division. Figueroa (16-0, 11 knockouts), who resides in Detroit, Michigan, made his ShoBox debut in his most recent bout on October 7, dropping Nicklaus Flaz twice en route to a knockout win in the opening round. Figueroa has recently displayed more aggression and power, having now stopped seven of his last nine opponents. On paper, the 22-year-old will be taking a step up in opposition when he squares off against Reyes, which he welcomes.
