On August 24th, blue chip prospect Jessie Magdaleno (15-0) will face Jose Luis Araiza (31-8-1) at the Civic Auditorium in Glendale, CA in a fight televised on UniMas' Solo Boxeo series.
Magdaleno recently started training with renown trainer Joel Diaz who's stable includes Tom Bradley, Omar Figueroa and Jessie's brother Diego. Magdaleno said that he will still be the action fighter that the fans have grown accustomed to.
"You are going to see an action fight. Every fight of mine for the past 15 fights has been all action and nothing is going to change. On August 24th we will see who goes down first," Magdaleno stated.
On October 12th Bradley will face Mexican icon Juan Manuel Marquez at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas. Magdaleno said that he thinks it is an evenly matched fight but he fully expects his stable mate to come out on top.
"Me and Tim Bradley talk every now and then. He's a cool guy. He's getting ready for the Marquez fight and he's looking good. It is going to be a close fight but I think overall that Bradley will take it. He's training hard and he wants it bad. I see him edging Marquez out," Magdaleno told BoxingScene.com.
