"I am ready for my Telemundo debut this Friday," stated Betancourt.
"We have been training all year for this opportunity, I am stepping into a new division, ready to show I belong with the top contenders."
Marrero has been forced to be on the sidelines due to the pandemic but has now been training and working hard under the guidance of former WBO world champion Roman "Rocky" Martinez who knows well what the rivalry between Puerto Rico & Mexico means.
