According to well known manager Frank Espinoza, former Olympian and rising Mexican contender, Joselito Velazquez, has signed a promotional contract with Cancun based promoter Pepe Gomez.
“Joselito is very excited to be part of Pepe’s company,” Espinoza stated. “He had a great performance in Cancun on Pepe’s card which was televised on Televisa and the network really liked him. We expect to have him back fighting on Televisa soon.”
Velazquez, who fights as a flyweight, holds a record of 18 wins, 1 defeat and 1 draw is excited.
“It was great fighting in my hometown for Pepe. I want to thank him for the great hospitality he showed us. I’m thrilled to be working with him. I think Pepe along with my manager Frank Espinoza and my trainer Carlos Barragan are an amazing team and we’re definitely going places.”
Velazquez recently defeated tough Colombian Pablo Carrillo via unanimous decision in a dominating performance. It was his third win in a row since losing a decision to former world champion Cristofer Rosales in December of 2022.
“It was a tough fight but I felt very strong in there. I had a great camp in San Diego at the house of boxing and I’m thankful for where my career is going. Expect a lot of exciting fights from me in the future.”
Espinoza who has guided the careers of twelve world champions, sees Joselito as a future beltholder.
“I’ve been doing this a long time and he definitely has what it takes,” he stated. “He has the drive and the talent. And now he has some great people behind him. His future is bright.”
