Jose Pedraza Added To Dulorme vs. Hernandez Card

The 23-year-old top super featherweight prospect, José "Sniper" Pedraza (9-0, 6KO), has been added to the August 31, 2012, "Night of Champions" boxing event taking place at the Guillermo Angulo Coliseum in Carolina, Puerto Rico.  His opponent will be announced on a later date.  The 10-round main event will feature Thomas Dulorme (15-0, 12 KOS), who will face Colombian fighter Ivan Hernandez (29-3, 23 KOS).

On June 15, 2012, in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, Pedraza was featured as the main-event and defeated fellow countryman, Carlos "Special Edition" Claudio (14-7, 6 KOs) by unanimous decision.

"I'm happy that I'm the co-feature on this boxing card and I'm excited to fight for the people of Carolina and all of Puerto Rico," said Pedraza, who's promoted by Universal Promotions, Gary Shaw Productions and DiBella Entertainment. "I'm a versatile boxer who gives his all in the ring and I always put on a good show for the people regardless of the opponent.  After defeating Carlos Claudio, I rested for a week and then started my conditioning.  Right now, I just started my gym training."

During his spectacular amateur career, Pedraza built up an impressive record of 160 wins and 16 losses. He won a silver medal in the World Championships in Italy, and captured gold medals in the Central American Caribbean Games in Mayaguez, PR, the Copa Romana in Dominican Republic, and in the qualification tournament in Guatemala for the 2008 Beijing Olympics in China, among others.

Pedraza and Dulorme are members of "Team Puerto Rico Boxing", which is a collaboration between Gary Shaw Productions, DiBella Entertainment and Universal Promotions, made with the goal of gathering the best of Puerto Rico's boxing talent.
