Claudio ‘The Matrix’ Marrero growing into a World Champion

“The Matrix,” world-rated featherweight Claudio Marrero (15-1, 11 KOs), has to be seen in order to truly appreciate his tremendous athleticism in the ring. The dynamic Dominican returns to the ring this Friday night in Pittsburgh in an eight-round bout against former World Boxing Council (WBC) FECARBOX champion Felix Perez (8-6, 3 KOs), of Puerto Rico.

“He is a very elusive, aggressive southpaw who can pick apart his opponent, counter-punching from the outside,” Marrero’s manager/head trainer Herman Caicedo described his 25-year-old fighter’s style.   “He uses his jab and effectively cuts-off the ring. He’s learning how to not complicated things, even with his style he doesn’t have to avoid every punch, and he knows he has to sit in the pocket more to be even more effective.”

Marrero learned a valuable lesson August 23, 2013 at Turning Stone Casino, when he suffered the first and only loss of his professional career by way of a close 12-round decision (116-111, 115-112, 114-113) to Jesus Marcelo Andres Cuellar (22-1) for the Interim World Boxing Association (WBA) featherweight title.
