John Bauza Returns To The Ring Sept. 8
Roc Nation Sports today announced that junior welterweight
boxer John “El Terrible” Bauza (10-0, 5 KOs) will return to
the ring on Saturday, September 8 to fight Rashard Bogar
(4-7, 2 KOs) at the Showboat Atlantic City.
It will mark Bauza’s first fight since May 4, when he
defeated Hugo Padilla in a six-round unanimous decision
victory (60-54, 60-54, 60-54) at the Birchwood Manor in
Whippany, N.J. With a win over Bogar, Bauza would secure his
third victory of the calendar year.
Bogar will be coming off a much longer lay-off than Bauza,
considering Saturday’s fight will mark his first appearance
in the ring in over two years. He last fought on May 16,
2016, when he was knocked out by Maxim Dadashev in the
fourth round of a six-round bout.
The timing for Bauza’s fight also has sentimental
significance, especially since this time last September, the
20-year-old’s training in Puerto Rico was disrupted by
Hurricane Maria. Bauza was ultimately forced to evacuate the
island with his family and take time off before resuming his
professional in December 2017.
