Undefeated lightweight prospect Jorge Teron is “The Truth”

NEW YORK CITY (December 7, 2007) – Unbeaten Bronx lightweight prospect Jorge “The Truth” Teron steps-up in class against Mexican knockout artist Adrian “Canon” Navarette in the 10-round co-feature December 13 on the “Holiday Hits” pro boxing show, co-promoted by Ring Promotions and Cedric Kushner’s Gotham Boxing, at The Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan..

WBA No. 9 rated middleweight contender challenger “Mean” Joe Greene (16-0, 12 KOs), the 2004 National Golden Gloves Tournament champion and reigning NABA middleweight champion from Queens (NY), headlines in the 10-round main event. Undefeated middleweight Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (15-0, 12 KOs), of Brooklyn, faces battle-tested Troy “TNT” Lowry (27-7, 16 KOs), of St. Paul (MN), in an eight-round Special Middleweight Attraction.

The 22-year-old Teron (18-0-1, 11 KOs), WBC No. 20 rated lightweight and 3-time New York Golden Gloves champion, will use his long reach and height advantage (4-inches, 6’ 0” to 5’ 8”) to box the power-punching Navarette (16-4-1, 13 KOs), former Intercontinental Mundo Hispano title-holder.

Teron is coming off of impressive back-to-back victories against Jefferson Auraad Rodriguez (20-10) by first-round TKO and an eight-round unanimous decision (80-72, 80-72, 79-73) and near shutout in his last action (September 5, 2007) versus Mike Gonzalez (10-1-1).

“It’s always exciting to fight at home because my family and friends watching makes me happy,” Teron said. “I’m also excited to be fighting in the co-feature for the first time. It’s a progression of my career and I want to show everybody what I can do. I’ll be headlining my own show soon. In 2008, I plan on fighting one or two 10-rounders and then I’ll be ready to take on the top lightweights in the world. I’m ready for the top level; no more swing bouts or 8-rounders. I’m fighting 10-rounders and eventually 12-rounders. I feel great for this fight.”

Dominican-born heavyweight prospect Nagy Aguilera (4-0, 2 KOs), the two-time New York Golden Gloves champion raised in Puerto Rico and fighting out of Newburgh (NY), takes on Darryl Holley (6-5, 1 KO), of Brigantine (NJ) in a 6-round bout.

Also fighting on the undercard is another Bronx fighter, New York State lightweight champion Freddy Soto (9-3-2, 5 KOs) vs. TBA; Paterson (NJ) light welterweight Jeremy Bryan (1-0) meets Broderick Antoine (2-3, 1 KO), of Troy (NY); Canadian bantamweight Noriko Kariya (7-2-1, 1 KO) battles Salina Jordan (2-2, 1 KOs), of Denver; Long Island heavyweights Darrel Madison (7-1, 3 KOs) and Elfair “The Wyandanch Warrior” McKnight are matched-up.
