Savio Vega vs. Gino Medina Confirmed For MLW Opera Cup

Savio Vega is returning to MLW and his home away from home.

The long-time veteran will take on Gino Medina at the MLW Opera Cup, taking place on December 5 in New York. The event will also serve as television tapings for upcoming MLW Fusion shows.

From MLW:

The Pride of Puerto Rico will return to his home away from home in New York City this Thursday night as the Caribbean legend fights the self-proclaimed future in Gino "El Intocable" Medina at the Melrose Ballroom.

MLW today announced Savio Vega vs. Gino "El Intocable" Medina for the Opera Cup at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City next Thursday December 5. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Unapologetically arrogant Gino Medina claims he is on a different level than anyone in the sport. The problem is, Medina has a reputation for backing it up.

A self-proclaimed once in a generation megastar in the making, Medina plans on showing he is a franchise player when he makes his NYC debut this Thursday.

Standing in his way is the brawling Boricua Savio Vega.

Vega, who splits his time between Puerto Rico and the South Bronx, is known for his rough, physical style which will be a challenge for the finesse oriented Medina who relies on speed and a technical form of lucha.

Believing the world is his, Gino has an insatiable appetite for greatness and vows he will not be denied… or will it when he rumbles with Savio Vega?
