"I'm thrilled to continue my career with Miguel Cotto’s company, which is the most powerful company in Puerto Rico and the most influential internationally. I am ready to work really hard and reach my goal to become a world champion. Fighting at Madison Square Garden in the same card as Miguel is an honor for me" Jorge Melendez said.

"We are very pleased to have Jorge as part of our company. He is a great prospect with a great potential. We look forward to working with his team and take him to the next level” Miguel Cotto said.

[QUOTE=borikua;12530046]Never heard of this cat.[/QUOTE] He was KO twice fighting WW. Since moving to SWW/LMW he is fighting better but still no quality name in his resume. He is all power but IMO he is way better than Jonathan Gonzalez…
