Dmitriy Salita’s Star of David Promotions along with Roy Jones Square Ring Promotions have announced the signing of jr. middleweight Steven Martinez (14-1, 11 KOs) to a co-promotional contract.

“Steve is a very talented fighter with world class skills. He looked sharp and is ready for top names in the jr. middleweight division,” said Salita
Roy Jones Jr is equally excited about the signing. “Steve’s impressive amateur career and skills as a pro make him one of the best prospects in the world,” said the future Hall of Famer.
