Omar Henry Returns to His Roots, Now Training in Puerto Rico

Things have gone south for up-and-coming junior middleweight boxer Omar Henry, not literally but geographically. The 24 year-old Chicago native has moved to Puerto Rico to train and is considering residing there permanently.

Henry's father was from Puerto Rico. He points out in the video that his father grew up in the same neighborhood as multi-divisional champion and reigning WBA Super Welterweight Champion Miguel Cotto.

Omar Henry, is a rising 154lber. He is currently undefeated at 11-0 and is highly touted as "the next light middleweight champion of the world." Henry helped train Nate Diaz for his April Strikeforce Welterweight Title defense against devastating striker Paul Daley.
