Antonio Escalante is getting back in the ring. After a loss to Rocky Juarez in San Antonio in his last bout, this after winning four straight, Escalante is now 28-5 with 19 knockouts, but realizes, if he loses, this could be it for his boxing career.
"This is going to be a fight... There is no going back on this fight, it's win or retire... Ahh! So for this fight, it's really about staying sharp in the mind."
Escalante will meet Robert Marroquin (22-2, 15 knockouts) in a 10-round featherweight bout in Thackerville, Oklahoma. The bout card, promoted by Top Rank, will be televised on UniMas, formerly Telefutura, on their Solo Boxeo Tecate promotion.
Also on the card is El Paso's Abraham Han (18-0, 12 knockouts), who will meet James Freeman (9-6, 7 knockouts) at the WinStar Casino, Thackerville, Oklahoma.
