Figueroa is from Weslaco, TX and is the younger brother to Omar Figueroa who is a Welterweight contender.
The Heartbreaker is what his nickname is he has those Hollywood Star looks but has ferocious punching style and is quietly working his way up the.
Figueroa will try to lay claim to the Interim WBA World Title which would be his 1st Title even though it’s a portion of it still it’s a big step up.

12 Rounds Welterweights(147)
Danny “Swift” Garcia has been a champion At 140(WBA,WBC) and 147(WBC) Has fought some of the best the division has to offer.
Garcia has fought both Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter Who are titleholders in the Division. Both were fights could’ve went either way both ended in Split decisions against Garcia.
Garcia is very decorated and well seasoned as a champion so this fight right here is seen as a bridge to getting back to a championship bout most likely rematch with Porter or Thurman which has been in the works.
Adrian Granados 20-6-2(14KOs)
Adrian Granados the South Side Chicago native who is seen as a journeyman But is so much better than that.When you see his resume and the guys he has squared off with.
Granados biggest night ended in defeat but he was so impressive against Adrian Broner it elevated him to getting with a bigger promotion which is Journeyman/PBC.
Granados is hungry to be more then just a contender he has championship aspirations and he has a common opponent being Shawn Porter whom he lost a decision to for the WBC Welterweight Title.
Prediction: This feels like it will be an absolute war because it’s Mexico vs Puerto Rico and these fight always bring more action than most bouts. I think Garcia will win a tough fight by Decision due to just being a championship level boxer and winning the late rounds
Bet:Over 9.5 Rounds
