Richard Torrez Jr, with a record of 5 wins and 5 knockouts, has had to pull out of his homecoming fight on March 25th, 2023, against Willie Jake Jr.
The reason for his withdrawal is an injury sustained during training. It is anticipated that the left-handed boxer, who is 23 years old, will make a comeback during the summer.

The ESPN card has now been updated to include two fights – a junior welterweight match between Jose Ramirez and Richard Commey and a title unification fight between WBA champion Seniesa Estrada and WBC champion Tina Rupprecht.
That news did not go down well with the boxing community, who were keen on seeing Torrez Jr make another statement.
