"This is a massive opportunity for Romero Duno to showcase his talents and show to everybody that his win over Chimpa Gonzalez was no fluke. We thank Robert Diaz and Golden Boy Promotions for the opportunity,” said Jim Claude “JC” Manangquil of Sanman Promotions.
Duno is thankful for the opportunity and vowed to make the most out of it.
