Promoter Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions proudly announces the signing of Filipino bantamweight Jundy “Pretty Boy” Maraon (15-0-1, 12 KOs) to a promotional agreement. 28-year-old southpaw Maraon, from Blancia St. Molave, Zamboanga del Sur, is the current WBO Asia Pacific Bantamweight Champion. He made his US debut last September at the Chumash Casino with a TKO 3 over Ernie Marquez.
Maraon, who turned pro in 2003, is considered as one of his boxing-rich country’s brightest prospects in the bantamweight division, and is known for scoring highlight-reel knockouts. He is currently training in San Leandro, California, with head trainer Nonito Donaire Sr., father of boxing superstar Nonito Jr.
“I am very excited to be signed with Greg Cohen,” said Maraon. “I’m ready to fight for a world-championship and Greg Cohen is the man who can put it together for me.”
“We’re very happy to be signed with GCP. Jundy is a top talent and he’s ready to go,” said Maraon’s manager, Vinny Scolpino of VMS Management. “Nonito Donaire Sr. is his head trainer and GCP is now his promoter, so the whole team is in place to help him become a world champion in the near future.”
“Jundy is a fantastic knockout artist and he’ll be a force at 118 lbs.,” said his new promoter, Greg Cohen. “He’s ready to get his career going on US soil and I’m happy to be able to help guide him. He’s a strong Filipino southpaw with excellent power and tremendous skill.”
