Two Virginia amateur boxers will be heading to Bermuda on Saturday, February 2 to participate on a pro-am card. Diego and Matt -- The Abregu Brothers -- are novice boxers who are from Craig Fladger's boxing program in Ashburn, VA. Their gym mate -- WIBA Middleweight champion Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson -- will be in the main event when she takes on WBA Middleweight titleholder Teresa Perozzi in a rematch for the vacant WBC Middleweight crown at the Cedarbridge Academy Gymnasium in Pembroke, Bermuda.
Diego Abregu was a star basketball player at Dominion High School in Sterling, VA where he once scored 41 points in a game. As a boxer, Diego competes at 141 pounds and won a subnovice championship in that weight class.
Matt Abregu, the older of the brothers, has seven boxing bouts to his credit and has also had a contest in mixed martial arts. Matt battles at 154 pounds.
