Said Pesoli, “We’re thrilled to have Jorge’s son battle in his Chicago debut this Friday night. “MAROMERO” is a long time friend of 8 Count and our fans are very excited to see his son fight. One of the biggest nights in recent Chicago boxing was presenting Jorge’s fight at the DePaul Athletic Center in 2003 in front of 3,500 people..
Since we announced this terrific 3 GALLOS card our phones have been very busy with fight fans who want to see Paez Jr. along with former world champion Martin Castillo and Giovanni Segura who’s a terrific all action fighter that our fans have really taken too. It’s an outstanding card from top to bottom and amongst the best we’ve presented this year.”
