Rene Alvarado Inks Contract With Golden Boy Promotions

LOS ANGELES - Following a spectacular victory over top featherweight contender Robinson "Robin Hood" Castellanos in Mexico on Feb.15, Nicaragua's Rene "Gemelo" Alvarado is now the latest addition to the Golden Boy Promotions roster, as the Los Angeles-based promoter is pleased to announce his signing to an exclusive contract.

"This is the most exciting moment of my career, and as a member of the Golden Boy Promotions team I know I'll get every opportunity to achieve my dreams in this sport," said Alvarado. "My win against Castellanos was just the beginning, and I hope to get a world title fight soon."

"Rene Alvarado flew onto our radar with his win over Castellanos last month, and with his skill, determination and warrior spirit, we believe he has all the tools to become a world champion," said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. "He is a great addition to our team and we're pleased to be working with him."

Born and raised in Managua, Nicaragua, Rene "Gemelo" Alvarado (20-2, 14 KOs) has been fighting professionally since 2008 and is a former Nicaraguan super bantamweight titleholder. Since moving up to the featherweight division in 2013, he has continued to shine, winning three straight bouts. The most important was the aforementioned Feb. 15, 2014 bout, when he stopped Castellanos in the ninth round to win the WBC Silver Featherweight Championship. Now he has his sights set on a world championship, a goal he hopes to achieve in 2014.
