Promoters Javier Bustillo (Universal Promotions), Gary Shaw (Gary Shaw Productions) and Lou DiBella (DiBella Entertainment) are pleased to announce the signing of 140-pound Puerto Rican super prospect Kenny Galarza (14-1, 14 KOs).
Galarza started boxing at five years old and had over 300 fights in his stellar amateur career, winning seven national and several international championships.
“I’m very grateful for this opportunity provided by Javier, Gary and Lou. I will work hard not to disappoint them and provide my town of Juana Díaz and my island of Puerto Rico many victories,” said Galarza.
Galarza will make his first appearance under the new promotional banner on the undercard of the Universal Promotions, Gary Shaw Productions and DiBella Entertainment show scheduled for June 10 in New York.
“Kenny is a great fighter and is one of the star signings of the company. He brings a lot of depth to the Universal Promotions stable of boxers,” said Bustillo.
“We have big plans for Kenny. He is a tremendous fighter and I’m sure will bring great glory to Puerto Rico,” said DiBella.
“I’ve seen him fight before and I know Kenny is a great fighter and a great addition to Team Puerto Rico. We want to do great things on this island and Kenny is an essential part of our progress,” added Shaw.
