Edgar Berlanga Links Up With Andre Rozier as Trainer

Fast-rising middleweight star Edgar Berlanga has announced that he has linked up with famed New York trainer Andre Rozier and his training team based in Brooklyn, New York.

Berlanga has emerged as a very dangerous banger, having stopped all 12 of his opponents in the first round since making the transition to the professional ranks after a standout amateur career.

The New York-based banger, who's latest victory came on the Top Rank's event in Philadelphia last weekend, discussed his link up with Rozier and Team Havoc and his ambitions going forward in the paid code.

He said, "I'm blessed to have been able to be where I'm at in boxing today. I have an amazing promotional and management team backing me headed up by Top Rank and I have now linked up with Andre Rozier which I believe is going to take me to the top and ultimately to world titles.

"Andre is a fantastic trainer, he's proven time and time and again he can develop a fighter from nothing to a world champion. I believe I have the ability to be world champion and I believe Andre and the team in Brooklyn will bring that out of me."

Rozier, who recently launched Havoc Management, Advisory, Media and PR outfits is no stranger to fight fans and training world level fighters, and he opened up on his latest charge Berlenga.

The Brownsville native said, "Edgar is a tremendous fighter. He has all the natural ability to go as far as he wants to in boxing and we intend on guiding him to those elite levels which I alongside Team Havoc all believe that he can achieve.

"I personally think he is one of the best prospects in boxing today and myself alongside Terrence Simpson, Lenny 'Lovefresh' Wilson and Gary Stark Sr have made a habit of turning these prospects into champions and it will be the same story with Berlanga."

He has big power, but he looked a little ponderous. That could be because he has faith in his punch. That last stop was a little premature, but I'm going to withhold judgement for now. First round KOs don't give…
