Vasquez-Omotoso added to June 20 card


A couple of interesting bouts have been added to upcoming Premier Boxing Champions cards on NBC:

• A clash between undefeated heavyweight Dominic Breazeale (14-0, 13 KOs), a 2012 U.S. Olympian, and former Cuban national team standout Yasmany Consuegra (17-0, 14 KOs) will open the card headlined by welterweight Robert Guerrero against Aron Martinez on June 6 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Breazeale, 29, of Anaheim, California, is still very raw after a brief amateur career. He won his last fight by fourth-round knockout against former Puerto Rican Olympian Victor Bisbal on March 7 but got knocked down. Consuegra, 31, now living in Miami, fought only once in 2014 and is coming off an eight-round decision win against journeyman Taurus Sykes on March 6.

• In a fight added to the Shawn Porter-Adrien Broner card on June 20 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, welterweights Sammy Vasquez and Wale Omotoso will collide. The bout will be televised either on NBC, time permitting, or on the NBC Sports Net coverage of the card following the main event. Vasquez (18-0, 13 KOs), a 29-year-old rising contender from Monessen, Pennsylvania, has emerged as a very TV-friendly fighter in his recent nationally televised bouts. Omotoso (25-1, 21 KOs), 30, a native of Nigeria fighting out of Oxnard, California, has won two fights in a row by knockout since his 10-round decision loss to Jessie Vargas on HBO in March 2013.
