Matías (8-0, 8 KO’s), will face Colombian and former world title challenger, Daulis Prescott (31-6, 23 KO’s) in a 10 rounds bout at the junior welterweight division.

Montes, was a world title challenger in 2011, when he faced former WBC champion, Tomas Rojas, who retained his belt by technical knockout in the eleventh round in Mexico.

“We are bringing good fights because they are very experienced opponents for Santiago and Matías so that the fans can have a good action evening in Fajardo. Here we care about the proper development of the fighters and at the same time, that provide exciting fights in that process. ‘Ojo’ and Subriel have proved to be on another level. They have already beaten former Olympians, prospects and contenders, and that same quality is what you will get on February 17. My fighters have to fight, and fight hard” said Fresh Productions promoter, Juan Orengo.

Campaigning at lightweight division, Santiago, native of Moca, Dominican Republic, has three notable victories over: former Mexican Olympian, Arturo Santos Reyes, world contender Jayson ‘La Maravilla’ Velez and the always seasoned, Andrés ‘Pajita’ Navarro.

Junior welterweight Matías Matthew, defeated in his fourth professional fight and against all odds, the rising prospect, Jeffrey Fontánez from Caguas in a crowed brawl that ended up with a technical knockout in the second round.
