Fresh off of a thrilling 10 round win over Alejandro Rodriguez in November, unbeaten lightweight prospect Abner Cotto will get one more fight in before the end of the year, when he faces Tijuana's Sergio Perez on the Saturday, December 22 edition of TeleFutura's "Sólo Boxeo Tecate" at the Coliseo Roger Mendoza in Caguas, Puerto Rico. It will be the fourth fight of 2012 for the rising star from Aguas Buenas, who rose from a first round knockdown against Rodriguez last month to win a clear-cut unanimous decision. Unbeaten as a professional, Abner Cotto (15-0, 6 KO's) is one of Puerto Rico's brightest hopes for world title honors in the coming years and after already winning the Puerto Rican and WBC FECARBOX lightweight belts thus far, he is on the right path to championship glory. The owner of 2012 wins over Hevinson Herrera, Juan Montiel and Rodriguez, the 25-year-old cousin of Puerto Rican stars Miguel Cotto and Jose Cotto will perform in front of his local fans one more time this year
