There are few prospects in the game like Damien ‘Sugar’ Vasquez.
Still just 18 years old, Vasquez (7-0, 3 KO’s) is technically a champion, having captured the NABF junior flyweight title in his sixth pro bout. And as we reported, Vasquez will soon be part of Al Haymon’s “Premier Boxing Champions” movement, with his likely return date to be on the undercard of the Oct. 14 Devon Alexander vs. Aaron Martinez bill in Glendale, Ariz.
Working under the astute eye of respected Cuban trainer Ismael Salas, Vasquez has been progressing nicely and looked as focused as ever the last time we caught him putting in work.
And while Vasquez’s abilities are for real and his aspirations extremely high, the young fighter is like many in the sport in that he is simply trying to overcome the odds and make the most of his situation.
Hustle Boss recently got word that Vasquez is looking for assistance heading into his next fight. Please take a visit to his personal Go Fund Me account to read more information on his situation.
I can promise you that you won’t find a more humble and hard-working prospect in the sport.
