Jorge Silva To Sign Promotional Pact With Golden Boy

By Miguel Rivera

Welterweight contender Jorge Silva (19-3, 15KOs) has caught the eye of Golden Boy Promotions and he plans to sign a promotional contract with their company. Silva appeared on two Golden Boy cards in 2012. He fought undefeated Yoshihiro Kamegai to a ten round majority draw in a fight filled with action. He returned in December, moving up to junior middleweight and fought Alfredo Angulo. Some thought Silva would be an easy target, but he put up a fight and made Angulo struggle in certain rounds. Angulo won a ten round decision.
