WBA#13 Cayo ready for big names

Unbeaten junior welterweight contender Victor Manuel Cayo was in top form on January 30th, as he scored a near-shutout nine round decision victory over his toughest foe to date in Noe Bolanos, thrilling a packed house at the UVI Sports & Fitness Center in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. “The fans were great in St. Thomas and they really pushed me to one of my best performances ever,” said Cayo. “Bolanos was tough, but I knew he couldn’t beat me.” The 90-79, 89-81, and 88-82 victory lifted the 24-year old Cayo’s stellar professional record to 20-0 (14 KOs) and allowed him to retain his WBA Fedecaribe junior welterweight title for the second time. Now the native of Santo Domingo, who is world ranked #13 by the WBA, has his sights on bigger game at 140 pounds. “I’m ready for a world title shot,” said Cayo. “I’ve paid my dues, I’ve beaten everyone who has been placed in front of me, and now I believe it’s time to fight one of the champions. I know I’m young, but I will prove to all my fans that I have what it takes to become a world champion.”
