Jessie Magdaleno Discusses Jonathan Arrellano Clash

By Ryan Burton

Undefeated super bantamweight Jessie Magdaleno (12-0) paid a recent visit to BoxingScene's official audio show, The Boxing Lab to talk to us about his December 6th showdown against Jonathan Arrellano (13-1-1). The fight will be televised by ESPN and the NABO Youth title will be at stake.

The Boxing Lab co-host Ernie Gabion asked the blue chip prospect to break down Arrellano and to talk about his opponent's strengths and weaknesses.

"I don't need to worry about any one thing in particular. I don't put nobody down. Anybody who steps in the ring is a champion," said Magdaleno while also pointing out that he doesn't expect his opponent to stand in front of him and trade.  "He's a good boxer. He likes to move. He's not much of a banger like I am. He's going to try to move around and stay away from my shots. I'm going to be smart in there and take my time and land my punches."

A win over Arrellano will cap a perfect 6-0 year for Magdaleno. The 21-year-old said   that he hopes to fight six more times next year and hopes to keep honing his craft.

"I hope to fight as many times next year. It's been a great year. I'm glad for the way it has turned out. Let's hope this keeps up through the upcoming years.

"Every fight is a learning experience. Even if it goes only one or two rounds we look at the tape and see what we can improve on," Magdaleno told The Boxing Lab.

Magdaleno finished our interview by saying that he can't wait for fight night and plans on putting all of his skills on display. 

"This is a great step for me. Jonathan Arrellano is a great fighter. Come December 6th we are going to put on a show for all the fans," Magdaleno stated.
