Top Mexican Boxing Prospects To Be Showcased

This Friday Night On “Canela Boxeo”!

(August 16th) Many of the top Mexican boxing prospects will be showcased this Friday night on the next installment of the “Canela Boxeo” series, presented by CANELA BOXEO and World Cup Boxing Series (WCBS), led by CEO Terry Hollan and promoter/matchmaker Guy Taylor, at Centennial Sports Center in Los Mochis, Sonora, Mexico.

 

“Canela Boxeo” will be held and streamed live and for FREE  the third Friday night every month, starting at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT, in Mexico.

 

“This card has a little bit of everything,” Taylor said. “We open up the night with one of the top young prospects in Mexico, the 2021 Gold Medal National Champion, Alejandro Cota, making his television debut. Undefeated Jorge Lugo Cota is looking to elevate from young prospect to young contender. Our main event on CANELA.TV will introduce Mexico’s next super middleweight contender as 19-1 Manuel Gallegos (16 KOs) looks to enter the world rankings with a victory on Canelo Boxeo.’”

 

Dangerous puncher Manuel Gallegos (19-1, 16 KOs, fighting at home out of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, faces light heavyweight Jesus “Mazo” Moroyoqui (10-1, 7 KOs), of Navojoa, Sonora, in the 8-round main event in a bitter intrastate rivalry match, respectively, Sinaloa vs. Sonora.

 

The 25-year-old Gallegos, WCBS’ latest signee, is the second-rated Mexican light heavyweight to only the great Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. He has been unable the last 10 months, while Moroyoqui understands how an upset victory will bolster his resume..  

 

Undefeated super lightweight prospect Jorge “Jorgito” Cota (8-0, 6 KOs) steps up in class as he takes on Jesus Antonio “Chino” Rubio (13-5-2, 7 KOs), the past World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim World super lightweight challenger. In the 8-round co-feature event.

 

Cota, the 20-year-old also fighting at home in Los Mochis, was an outstanding amateur boxer who compiled a record of 155-10, to go along with  numerous state and national championship gold-medal performances. Jorge’s uncle, 5-time world champion, is part of the famed Mexican fightin’ Montiel family. His uncle, Fernando Montiel (54,6 39 KOs), is the color analyst for “Canela Boxeo.”

 

Rubio defeated former world-ranked challenger and United States Boxing Association (USBA) Champion Sonny Fredrickson (21-3) in 2021 to earn Rubio a title shot versus undefeated Alberto Puello (20-0) for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim Junior Welterweight World Championship. Rubio lost a 12-round decision.

 

Bantamweight Nazario Castro (10-2, 5 KOs) puts his 8-fight win streak on the line against Sergio “The Shadow” Villalobos (10-5, 2 KOs) in an evenly matched, action-packed  8-round bout. Castro knocked off a pair of previously unbeaten opponents, 5-0 Javier Montes and 6-0 Ricardo Brazamontes, during the aforementioned skein. Brazamontes, though, has faced much stiffer competition and is more experienced.

 

Young Mexican lightweights Rafael “Peque” Armenta (5-0-1, 1 KO) and Armando “El Chica” Ramirez (7-1-1, 3 KOs) are matched in a 6-rounder.

 

In the opening bout of the evening, 17-year-old Alejandro Cota (2-0, 1 KO) will make his television debut in a 4-round fight against Luis Nides Nunez (1-2-1, 0 KOs). Cota is the younger brother of another WCBS promising prospect, 20-year-old lightweight Marco Cota Moreno (8-0, 6 KOs). Like his older brother, Cota -- no relation to Jorge Cota – was a remarkable amateur boxer who was 114-6, 4-time Sonora State Champion, and 2021 National Champion.

 

“Canela Boxeo” – LIVE, EXCLUSIVE and FREE stream -- on CANELA.TV, presented by World Cup Boxing Series, on Friday, August 19th from the Centennial Sports Center in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico, starting 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT throughout the United States, Mexico, and Latin America.

Rising Mexican Super Lightweight Prospect

Jorge Lugo Cota Continuing

Family Fighting Legacy On “Canela Boxeo”!

(August 11th) The next generation of Mexican boxers is developing and one of the leaders is 20-year-old super lightweight Jorge “Jorgito” Lugo Cota (8-0, 6 KOs), the latest member of Mexico’s famed fightin’ Montiel family, who will be fighting at home August 19th on the next installment of the “Canela Boxeo” series, presented by CANELA BOXEO, and World Cup Boxing Series (WCBS), led by CEO Terry Hollan and promoter/matchmaker Guy Taylor, at Centennial Sports Center in Los Mochis, Sonora, Mexico.

 

The 8-round co-featured event will showcase Cota against Jesus Antonio “Chino” Rubio (13-5-2, 7 KOs), the past World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim World super lightweight challenger. Cota was a standout amateur boxer who compiled a record of 155-10, to go along with  numerous state and national championship gold-medal performances. Jorge’s uncle, 5-time world champion, Fernando Montiel (54,6 39 KOs), is the color analyst for “Canela Boxeo.”

 

“I feel very happy to fight in my city, Los Mochis, with my people and family,” Cota said. “I am ready to give a great fight for all the fans and friends. I’m not concerned about fighting in my first scheduled 8-rounder.I feel happy. It’s not something that worries me. I really want to fight and, if the fight goes the distance, I’ll be ready.

 

“I don’t feel pressure (as a member of the Montiel family), to the contrary, I feel well supported by one of the best teams in the world. I know if I give my best, the result will be positive. I’ve learned many things from my family: work hard - we always work hard in the gym – discipline and, above all, a winning mentality.

 

“Fighting on Canela.TV will be very good for me so that people throughout the United States and all of Latin America can watch me fight for free. I saw the last event they did in Hermosillo, and it looked very good. I feel very motivated to get into the ring.”

 

WCBS isn’t concerned about pushing Cota too fast, according to Taylor, who commented: “Jorge isn’t your typical stereotype of what a ‘Mexican fighter’ should be. He’s very elusive with great defense and countering abilities. Jorge has yet to lose a single round during his young pro career.

 

“I’ve always been known as an aggressive matchmaker, but this might be too aggressive, even for me. We (WCBS) have total confidence in Jorge and the Montiel family. A victory over a former world title challenger on Canela Boxeo will be a huge statement to the boxing world.”

 

In 2021, Rubio defeated former world-ranked challenger and United States Boxing Association (USBA) Champion Sonny Fredrickson (21-3), earning Rubio an opportunity to challenge undefeated Alberto Puello (20-0) vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim Junior Welterweight World Championship, albeit in a 12-round loss by way of decision

 

“I don’t know too much about my opponent,” Cota added. “I know that he fought in Los Mochis last year and for a world championship, but I’m not used to seeing my opponents. I do what my family tells me to do in the ring and gym. I’m going to knock him out, probably between the fifth and seventh rounds.”

 

 In a bitter Sinaloa vs. Sonora rivalry fight, WCBS’ newest signing, Manuel Gallegos (19-1, 16 KOs, also fighting out of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, takes on light heavyweight Jesus “Mazo” Moroyoqui (10-1, 7 KOs), of Navojoa, Sonora, in the 8-round main event.

Manuel Gallegos vs. Jesus Moroyoqui

Headline “Canela Box Nights”!

(August 1st) Only 10 days after the launching of the “Canela Box Nights” series, CANELA BOX and World Cup Boxing Series (WCBS), led by CEO Terry Hollan and promoter/matchmaker Guy Taylor, have announced boxing’s newest series will return August 19th to one of boxing’s true hotbeds, Los Mochis, Sonora, Mexico.

 

“Canela Box Nights” will be held and streamed live for free the third Friday evening every month in Mexico.

 

Los Mochis, Sonora is synonymous with elite boxing, producing stars such as 5-time World Champion Fernando Montiel 54-6 (39 KOs) and 4-division World Champion Jorge Arce (64-8, 49 KOs).

 

The most recent WCBS signing, super-middleweight Manuel Gallegos (19-1, 16 KOs), has a legitimate shot  at developing into the next star from Los Mochis. Gallegos appears to have the size, strength, skills, and chin to go deep in the loaded 168-pound division. Two fights ago. Gallegos defeated former Showtime and TMT fighter, Kevin Newman II (13-3-1, 8 KOs), of Las Vegas, by way of a close 10-round unanimous decision a year ago.

 

Gallegos’ opponent in the Aug. 19th 8-round main event is light heavyweight Jesus “Mazo” Moroyoqui (10-1, 7 KOs), of Navojoa, Sonora, the home of Mexican boxing legend and former International Boxing Federation  (IBF) World Champion Luis “Yory Boy” Campas (107-17-3. 82 KOs).

 

“I’ve had the privilege to sit ringside and watch both men fight on separate nights and when the opportunity came to make this fight happen it was something we couldn’t pass up,” explained Taylor. “Now, if you are a boxing purest and love the whole ‘hit and not get hit’ style, this main event match-up may not be for your favorite, but if want to see a fight with no pretense of defense then you better tune in on August 19th to CANELA.TV”.”

 

Moroyoqui had a good amateur career with more than 100 fights and as a pro he has already defeated two previously undefeated fighters. Moroyoqui’s last fight resulted in his first pro loss to current world-ranked, undefeated Diego Pacheco (15-0) on DAZN.

 

The 8-round co-featured event will serve as a great “table setter” as one of the top prospects in all of Mexico and member of the Mexico’s famous Montiel boxing family, super lightweight prospect Jorge Lugo Cota (7-0, 5 KOs), also from Los Mochis.. An outstanding amateur who had a record of 155-10, coupled with numerous state and national championship performances, Cota takes a huge leap up in class versus former world title challenger Jesus Antonio Rubio (13-5-2, (7 KOs).

 

Rubio defeated former world-ranked challenger and United States Boxing Association (USBA) Champion Sonny Fredrickson (21-3) back in the spring of 2021. Defeating Fredrickson earned Rubio an opportunity to fight for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim Junior Welterweight World Championship against undefeated Alberto Puello (20-0) a year ago albeit dropping a 12-round decision. In Rubio’s last action, he fought to an 8-round split draw with Angel Martinez (14-1, 14KOs).

 

“I have always been known as an aggressive matchmaker in my 20 years of doing, but this is overly aggressive even for me,” Taylor noted. “We have the utmost confidence in our fighter (Lugo) and for him to make his first eight-round fight against a past world title challenger should tell you all about the confidence he has in himself.”
