Orozco cut in sparring; out of March 12th fight on Vargas-Tomlinson undercard

Undefeated Mexican brawler Antonio “Relentless” Orozco (21-0, 15 KOs) will have to wait to make his 2015 debut. Orozco was injured on Monday, Feb 2. when he suffered a deep cut near the right eye while sparring during training camp. 

His personal doctor determined the cut was too deep in dimension and would not heal fast enough for his scheduled bout on March 12.  Orozco withdrew from participation as the co-main event for Francisco “El Bandido” Vargas (21-0-1, 15 KOs) versus “Wild” Will Tomlinson (23-1-1, 13 KOs) from the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday, March 12th, airing live on HBO Latino beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.
