Olympian Alex ‘El Pollo’ de Jesus returns in 2014

By Rey Colón -The Sport Press

Former 2004 Olympian Alex “El Pollo” de Jesus (20-1, 13 KOs), who was released from prison on December 21 after serving four years and two months for domestic violence in the correctional institution in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, will resume his career in 2014 and plans to return by March, stating that his goal is to catch up and become world champion at 140 pounds. “I’ll be back with a new team and at 140 pounds,” stated the 30-year-old de Jesus. “I hope to do my first fight in March or earlier but we’ll discuss it with my managers. But I’m now adjusting to being in the free community. In there you feel different and I have to get used to everything again. But I’m still the same and come with a lot of enthusiasm!”
