The duo met each other in the Lightweight Final of the Boxam International Youth Tournament last month in Spain, and will do battle for a second time today in the Alicante region for a place in the World Youth Quarter-Finals.
It was the Puerto Rican who took Gold in October through a split decision in a bout which the Rob Roy boxer thought he deserved to get the nod.
But the Scottish teen will have a chance to put that result right at the biggest tournament in Youth boxing this evening at approximately 7:15pm.
Isa is one of two Scots in action in the Round of 16 today, with Doon Valley Heavyweight Kian Govan having his first bout in the competition at approximately 1:15pm when he faces David Polak of the Czech Republic.
The duo will be aiming to join Renfrewshire’s Aaron Cullen in the Quarter-Finals, after the Bantamweight comfortably defeated Moldova’s Ilie Argatu by unanimous decision yesterday.
