Seminole Warriors Boxing, joined with Universal Promotions, kicked off a new series of shows in Puerto Rico in a big way on Saturday night, as highly-touted prospects Kenny Galarza and Jonathan Gonzalez scored electrifying knockout victories that had the over 4,000 fans at the Auditorio Juan “Pachín” Vicens in Ponce on their feet and cheering for more. “It was a great night for Universal Promotions and Seminole Warriors Boxing, for our fighters, and for Puerto Rico,” said Leon Margules, Executive Director of Seminole Warriors Boxing. “The fans came out in force to support this show, and Kenny and Jonathan delivered the goods in a big way.”
Fighting in front of his hometown fans for the first time as a professional, rising junior welterweight star Galarza improved to 9-0 (9 KOs) with a blistering first round knockout of Eduardo Adorno. The 23-year old Galarza’s 19-year old stablemate, 2008 Puerto Rican Olympian Gonzalez, was just as impressive in halting Pascali Adorno in the opening round to up his pro record to 2-0 with 2 first round KOs.
The bouts highlighted a night of fights in which Puerto Rican boxing fans were treated to some of the sport’s top young talent. The success of the first show is a good omen for the rest of the series.
“The atmosphere in the arena was spectacular and the way the fans responded to Kenny sent chills up my spine,” said Margules. “I think we may have the next Felix Trinidad in Kenny, and with Universal Promotions as our partner, Puerto Rican boxing fans are going to be in for some great fights in the coming months from Kenny and the rest of the Warriors roster,” said Margules.
Warriors / Universal’s next show in Puerto Rico will be announced.
