Ft. Lauderdale, FL – Warriors Boxing is proud to announce the signing of undefeated junior middleweight Kevin Salgado to co-promotional contract with Davies Entertainment
Salgado, 23 years-old of Tizapan, Mexico is 13-0 with nine knockouts.
“I am blessed. I am very emotional and humbled, and I can’t wait to fight. We have a super team with Warriors and Davies Entertainment plus my manager Ursulo Perez,” said Salgado.
“I am very happy to join forces with Davies Entertainment. They are located in a one of the best boxing towns in San Antonio. Kevin Salgado is a very good puncher with either hand and comes from a great boxing family. His brother a two-time world champion,’ said Luis DeCubas Sr. of Warriors Boxing.
“I did a deal with Warriors in the past, and it was a great deal. For me it’s about providing opportunity for these young boxers and doing a deal with Warriors provides more exposure and opportunity for Kevin,” Cameron Davies, CEO of Davies Entertainment.
“I look forward to see Kevin fight in the United States and make waves in the middleweight division,” Said Ursulo Perez, Manager of Kevin Salgado
Salgado got interested in boxing after watching his brother, two-time world super featherweight champion, Juan Carlos Salgado compete.
” As an amateur, I was watching my brother,, the crowds that loved him. My brother was, and will always be my idol.”
Before turning professional, Salgado went 38-2 and he was a three-time national champion and a six-time regional champion.
Salgado, who has had all 13 of fights in Mexico is looking forward to plying his trade in America.
“I know there are differences in the two countries, particularly the style. Boxers, pure boxers with great skills are plentiful in the US. Here the fighters are more aggressive, straight forward and tough. A losing record of a Mexican fighter does not tell the true story of his abilities. I am fortunate that I have quicker hands and good foot movement in comparison to other middleweights in Mexico. This was obvious, as an amateur as I won three national championships. I am ready to advance my skills. I am quick and strong, and I will come to the United States to knock out all of the top fighters. I will likely be doing some training in the United States at Davies Gym..”
“I am hopeful to be on TV soon, and within the next 18 months challenge any champion. It makes no difference, I am a professional and I will be ready.
“It would be a great honor to win a world championship in Las Vegas or San Antonio. I want to defend it a few times, and return to Mexico to defend the championship in front of my countrymen.”
