The news came courtesy of mananger Oscar Vasquez, who is known by those in city for the way he has jumpstarted his son Damien’s career. The 18-year old Damien is 8-0 with 3 knockouts, having captued the NABF junior flyweight title in his sixth bout, and will be training alongside Fiz.
Vasquez informed Hustle Boss that Fiz, along with Damien, will be training under the watchful eye of Nonito Donaire Sr. inside of the Pound 4 Pound Boxing Gym in the coming weeks.
Born in Sancti Spiritus, Cuba, Fiz (19-0, 13 KO’s) spent his early career fighting in South Florida before later racking up wins in the Dominican Republic.
Vasquez has countless years in the game, from managing fighters to promoting shows down in Mexico, and seems eager to move his latest pupil.
Stay tuned for more on Fiz and Vasquez, including live coverage of their training wth Donaire Sr. in the coming weeks.
