TIJUANA. BC. - Although he had offers from several companies, Mexican boxer Raul Hirales Jr., joined the ranks of Zanfer by signing an exclusive contract for five years with the largest promoter in Latin America, which is headed by businessman Fernando Beltran of Tijuana.
Hirales Jr. (12-0-1, 7 KOs) won a major fight last week with a split decision over the prized prospect Charles Huerta (16-2-0, 9 KOs) in the city of San Diego. The fight was televised nationally in the United States.
This victory prompted several companies, both American and Mexican, to offer Hirales a contract. However, this young super bantamweight chose Zanfer, which in his opinion is the best option for his career to become a world champion and be on high-impact cards.
Hirales Jr. signed the exclusive contract for five years with Zanfer and serving as witness was his own father, Mr. Raul Hirales, while the side of the promoter was signed by Zanfer's own president, Fernando Beltran.
Hirales Raul Jr., a native of La Paz, Baja California, is the cousin of the twin boxers who are currently WBO world champions, Ramon "The Prince" Garcia who holds the belt at flyweight and Raul "Rayito" Garcia who is champion at strawweight.
