a few times and he and his manager, Larry Christian feel that this is a good time for them
to move forward towards tougher opponents and a rise in the rankings. He’s a great kid
to work with, a real gentlemen, always in shape, always ready to fight. Our fans haved loved
seeing him on our cards and we’re very happy he’s joined our team.”
Speaking of Cordoba, Pesoli stated, ‘Cordoba’s a tough as nails featherweight who’s fought
very tough guys throughout his career. He’s had close fights with guys like Robbie Peden, Humberto Soto, Hector Velazquez, Orlando Soto, Steven Lueveno and Daniel Santos. Two months ago he knocked out Daniel Maldonado who was a rising prospect with an 18-1 record. No question this is a tough fight for Jose and should be action packed from start to finish.”
