Felix Verdejo injures right wrist after slip in shower, September 22 fight off

By Danny Z | Contributing Writer

BIG BEAR, CALIFORNIA — It what can be seen as only a revolving door of injuries since his motorcycle accident last year, Felix Verdejo has pulled out of his scheduled fight on September 22 in Arizona, after slipping in the shower and hurting his right wrist.

Verdejo (23–0, 15 KOs) was set to fight Antonio Lozada in a match card headlined by fellow stablemates Oscar Valdez and Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez. This would have been Verdejo’s second fight of the year, as he defeated Oliver Flores back in February. Verdejo, 24, had a great deal of momentum before his unfortunate motorcycle accident, and has been trying to get back into the contention picture since. Before the accident, a fight with WBO lightweight world title holder, Terry Flanagan, was reportedly in the works.

He [Verdejo] made a trip to a physician up in Big Bear following the injury, and was told that he should go 2–3 weeks without any activity, according to boxingscene.com. This, of course, affected the planned bout towards the latter half of this month. Verdejo and his team have already reportedly made the trip back to his native Puerto Rico. As of this writing, no estimated date has been reported for his return.
