I agree, also staying in Ireland will force him to improve his english which in turn makes him more marketable etc....

Does anyone know why Luis Franco hasn't fought since February? Franco is our best featherweight after Gamboa, he really impressed me in his last fight against Miranda in seeing how much punishment he can take but he needs to improve his defence. He can definitely go a long way, he has very good technique, amateur experience, along with aggression, stamina, guts, an iron Chin and determination but needs to box more and don't brawl. He should have fought by now, does anyone know what's going on with, " La Estrella " ???

That was a good fight between Franco and Miranda. I read an article in a Mexican sports page, that Miranda was trying to get a rematch against Franco. I don't know if Team Franco is going for it or seeking other options, no word from team Franco. Who is Promoting Franco anyways?

I have a very hard time believing that franco can beat any of the champs at 126

Franco has a good workrate but lacks real power.

I was not impressed by Franco. Horrible last performance IMO and was lucky to get the win

Franco... not good enough. I expect good things for Hairon Socarrás, though. That kid has dynamite in his fists.

Socarraz had a sparring against Salinas (we saw the video some months ago) and Socarraz proved that he is more than a hard-punching fighter.
Socarraz and Mike Perez really exiting fighters. Hairon Socarraz very young and lack amateur background

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is the official live video stream for the event and will be available outside the UK from 9pm GMT on Saturday night.
Irish-based Cuban Mike Perez kicks-off the night, putting his unbeaten record on the line against Trinidad and Tobago’s Kerston Manswell. The winner of that fight will face a semi-final clash against either giant Russian Evgeny Orlov or former French Heavyweight champion Gregory Tony. The other side of the draw sees UK Prizefighter Champion Michael Sprott face American KO machine Tye Fields, with the victor facing either unbeaten Romanian Lucian Bot or the dangerous big-hitting German Konstantin Airich in the second semi-final.

No fights currently scheduled but undefeated Cuban featherweight prospect Luis “La Estrella” Franco (9-0 5 KOs) is currently training at SoMi Fitness in Miami with strength and conditioning coach Willie Del Sol and dietician Unni Greene.
