Ruben Villa Closing In on Title Shot as He is Now Ranked #2 By The WBO
Thu, 27 Feb 2020
PHILADELPHIA, PA / ORANGE, CA- February 25, 2020 - The accolades continue to come in for undefeated featherweight Ruben Villa (18-0, 5 KOs) as he is now ranked #2 by the World Boxing Organization (WBO).
Last week it was announced that Villa is now ranked #9 by Ring Magazine
The new position has the Salinas, California native inching ever closer to a world title opportunity against amateur rival Shakur Stevenson. Villa and Stevenson split four bouts in their amateur career.
"Now to be ranked #2 by the WBO shows that the hard work is paying off. I am looking to face any champion. I am just being patient, and when my time comes, I will be ready for that opportunity," said Villa.
Villa is co-promoted by Banner Promotions and Thompson Boxing.
