Sarasota, FL – New Faces in the Lightweight division fighting out of Sarasota, FL. Jose “Pacquiao” Resendis (1-0) stands as one of the most exiting young Mexican talents coming out of Florida.

Resendis won his pro debut on November 16th by dominating tough Luis Rodriguez in a UD win in St. Pete, FL. under the MAD Integrity/ OnePunch Boxing fight card.

A short armature carrier due to a life of the streets and gangs there seemed to be no way out for Resendis who lives to fight, Coming in contact with Aaron Avalos currently trainer and manager adopted in the troubled Resendis to La Fe Boxing Club were his journey as a fighter came to a start.

The hard minded Resendis responded like a natural, many fighters would come to the gym to face intensive sparring from the fast developing Resendis who just continues to work harder at his skills.

This kid has power and heart, It will direct him on a course to become one of the most exiting fighters in the world, I expect him to think big.

Ramirez started off great as a huge draw in the Tampa area, He is a fighter in superb condition, throws lots of punches, extremely entertaining and competitive when he fights.

Ramirez is on a course in my view not to fight cup-cakes, I look for him to perform dazzling and compete with good record opponents, His chin showed to be firm I like the way he throws his combinations mark my word he is one of the most exiting young fighters coming out of Florida.

Peter ‘Kid Chocolate’ Quillin Searching for defining fight

NEW YORK CITY – Held prisoner because of the boxing network war, undefeated World Boxing Organization (WBO) middleweight champion Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (30-0, 22 KOs) is still searching for his career defining fight.

The 30-year-old Quillin, fighting out of Brooklyn, is the only top-rated 160-pounder aligned with Showtime. The marquee-name middleweights, Sergio Martinez (WBC/Ring Magazine champion) and Gennady Golovkin (WBA), fight exclusively on rival HBO.

Quillin relishes the opportunity to fight any of the top rated middleweights, but he also understands the politics of boxing and the situation it has presently placed him in. “It’s not up to me who I fight,” Quillin said. “If the money is right, I’m up for fighting any of the top names, especially Martinez and Golovkin, but everybody’s aware of what’s going on behind the scenes (Showtime vs. HBO). My job is to work hard and be ready. I have the most powerful team in boxing (Golden Boy Promotions, adviser Al Haymon, co-managers John Seip and Jim McDevitt) and they get me the best available deals. I’m not worried about who I’m fighting. They come to me with my fights.”

Here’s how Quillin breaks down the top middleweights in the world, not listed in any particular order:

Sergio Martinez: “He is the one everybody has as No. 1 in the middleweight division. Martinez has fought some very exciting fights. He’s a showman in the ring.”

Gennady Golovkin: “A power puncher. Golovkin brings power into the ring and gets a lot of knockouts.”

Darren Barker (IBF champion): “He always puts his best foot forward and always tries as hard as possible. Barker and I would bring a lot of fireworks into the ring.”

Daniel Geale: “Another exciting fighter who bangs with the best. It worked for a while against Barker.”

Felix Sturm: “I haven’t seen too much of him. I hope Sturm pursues more fights to make the middleweight division even tougher than it is right now.”

Martin Murray: “He is determined and exciting. I can’t take anything away from Murray.”

Peter Quillin: “A very exciting guy always looking for new ways to win. He has power, showmanship and a lot of smarts in the ring.”

Quillin recently overcame personal heartache in his second title defense victory, by 10th round technical knockout over a game Gabriel Rosado, who suffered a serious cut over his eye that resulted in the fight being halted on the advice of the ring doctor. While he was in the middle of training camp in Los Angeles, Quillin’s wife, Allison, suffered a miscarriage five months into her pregnancy. She was home in New York City.

“I struggled with it,” Quillin admitted. “I was obligated to camp, 3000 miles away, and she had to go through it without me being there to comfort her. We’re praying together and I’m working on being more compassionate.”

Quillin is already back in the gym, going through light workouts and yoga. “I took a week off and bought my dream car (red Corvette Stingray),” he added. “I get depressed when I’m not working out. My wife goes to work and I’m all alone.&nbs
