Felix Verdejo 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Verdejo was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and has two brothers and two sisters.
Verdejo, the only boxer in the family, started boxing when he was nine years old.
On August 7, 2016, Verdejo was involved in a motorcycle accident while traveling from Fajardo to Carolina, Puerto Rico.
At first listed in critical condition, he recuperated quickly at a local hospital. He was with a companion, who was uninjured.
He suffered a head injury and small lacerations.
Verdejo was released from hospital on August 19.
On April 30, 2021, Verdejo was named by police as a person of interest in the disappearance of a 27-year-old pregnant woman, Keishla Rodríguez.
Rodriguez’s family said that she was pregnant with Verdejo’s child.
On May 2, he turned himself in to police after the woman was found dead and is facing several criminal charges, filed by the FBI in Puerto Rico, including kidnapping resulting in death, carjacking resulting in death and the killing of an unborn child.
He was only 19 years old when he turned professional.
He suffered his first professional loss at the hands of Antonio Lozada Jr.
He is the first boxer to knock down Masayoshi Nakatani.
He won Premios Lo Nuestro New Hispanic Promise Award in 2013.
The 27 year old Verdejo, who last fought on Dec. 12, 2020 and holds a 27-2 record.
Reports to this juncture paint a picture that suggest love, marriage, fidelity and offspring came together and collided, to a disastrous degree.
The mother of Keishla, Keila Ortiz Rivera, told El Nuevo Día that her daughter informed her that she and the charming boxer were to see each other in a little while.
She and Verdejo would be meeting, to talk about the result of a pregnancy test she’d taken, that was the missing woman’s mom’s account.
A scanning of his Instagram account betrays no hint that anything beyond the ordinary was playing out in the life of “El Diamante.”
The fighter posed in plenty of pics with a baby daughter, born in October 2018, and he writes of a newfound level of maturity, stemming from wanting to excel, to make her life better.
The fighter possesses a dazzling smile, which has held to form, on social media, even as he’s lost a couple fights, and not panned out to be the superstar his skill set suggested he’d be before he turned pro in December 2012.
“El Diamante” on Instagram salutes his lady Eliz M. Santiago Sierra (pictured with Felix, off his Instagram circa December 2017) in several posts, and in a 2019 post, affirms that they’d been together for 7 years at that point.
