TIJUANA, BC - The super flyweight champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Tomas "Gusano" Rojas, signed a contract extension for three years with Zanfer Promotions. The deal left both sides pleased and satisfied.
The contract was signed at Zanfer's headquarters in Tijuana, with the President of the company, Fernando Beltrán, present when "Gusano" Rojas affixed his signature on the contract that ties him to the most powerful boxing promoter in Latin America until 2014. Now the fine fighter from Veracruz is looking for big fights.
"I am very happy to stay here which is my home for three more years. I only have thankful words for Zanfer and its president, Fernando Beltrán, director Guillermo Brito, and the entire staff of Zanfer who have always treated me wonderfully. I'm convinced that it was the best decision on my part to resign and I know that good things are coming in my career," said a happy Rojas after both parties signed the agreement.
Fernando Beltran will look to push the career of Rojas forward.
"I am honored that Zanfer will direct the career of Tomas Rojas, a world champion inside and outside the ring, an example of dedication and perseverance. With the samples given to us recently, to win twice in Japan and then to give a dominating performance against a great prospect such as the "Goofy" Montes, that tells us that he will be champion for a while", Beltran said
The Tijuana promoter said Rojas is ready for anything, even to unify at super flyweight or search for a bantamweight title, so they began immediate negotiations for an agreement that meets the professional and personal interests of Rojas, and to ensure that he fights again soon.
"I'm already in the gym and as my promoter Fernando Beltran can tell you right now, I'll be ready. I want to fight the best in the world and he can get close to them. I think it is a relationship in which everyone wins. And apart from everything, we are very good friends", Rojas explained
