Felix Verdejo is a professional boxer who was born on May 19, 1993. He spent most of his childhood living in a home in San Juan, Puerto Rico, with his two sisters and two brothers. Felix became the first person in the family to pick up the sport of boxing when he began training at a local gym at the age of nine.

After training for more than 10 years, Verdejo finally started entering national boxing tournaments in 2012. Winning the 2012 American Boxing Olympic Qualification Tournament in Rio de Janeiro ensured that he would be a member of the Puerto Rican Olympic boxing team. Verdejo defeated Panama’s Jose Huertas and Tunisia’s Ahmed Mejri in the first two rounds of the 2012 Olympic Games in London before losing to Ukraine’s Vasyl Lomenchenko in the quarterfinal round.

The solid showing at the Olympics convinced Felix Verdejo that he should start his professional boxing career. His first professional fight took place on December 6, 2012, at The Mirage in Las Vegas. Verdejo defeated Leonardo Chavez by unanimous decision. The first professional win was then followed up with five straight knockout victories. After winning his first nine matches, Verdejo got the chance to fight in one of the most historic arenas in the world. He secured a first round knockout victory over Lauro Alcantar in Madison Square Garden on January 15, 2014. Six months later, he had another first round knockout win over Engelberto Valenzuela in the same building.

Felix Verdejo finally had his first fight get past the fourth round when he faced Oscar Bravo on August 16, 2014. While Verdejo was challenged for the first time in his career, he still walked away with a unanimous decision victory in the eight-round bout. He ended 2014 with knockout victories over Sergio Villanueva and Karim El Ouazghari to finish the year with a perfect 17-0 professional record. The impressive start to his career let Felix Verdejo fight Marco Antonio Lopez for the vacant WBO Latino lightweight title on April 25, 2015. Lopez struggled to land punches before getting knocked out in the fifth round.

Verdejo successfully defended his new title for the first time when he got a unanimous decision victory over Ivan Najera on June 13, 2015. He finally got to box in front of his hometown fans of San Juan when he took on Josenilson Dos Santos at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum on December 11, 2015. Dos Santos struggled from the opening bell, and he was eventually knocked out late in the second round. The WBO Latino lightweight title was also successfully defended against William Silva, Jose Luis Rodriguez and Juan Jose Martinez before the end of 2016.

Felix Verdejo’s career looked like it could be in jeopardy when he got into a serious motorcycle accident in August 2016. The accident forced him to stay in the hospital for 12 days before fully recovering from a head injury. He returned to the ring for the first time after the accident on February 3, 2017, to defeat Oliver Flores by unanimous decision.
