New York, NY – DiBella Entertainment has announced the signing of 2016 Colombian Olympian Juan Carlos Carrillo to an exclusive promotional contract.

The 26-year-old Carrillo advanced to the second round at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

Carrillo comes from a boxing family and, at age nine, followed his father and older brother into the sport. His brother, Leonard Carrillo, is an active junior middleweight. Now living in Queens, NY, Carrillo is trained by Martin Gonzalez and Juan Carlos Gonzalez out of Brooklyn’s Gleason’s Gym and will compete in the light heavyweight division as a professional.

The light heavyweight division just got a little more crowded,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “Colombia’s Juan Carlos Carrillo was a spectacular amateur with a record of 388-23 and will have the tools and maturity to progress through the pro ranks at a quick pace. I am happy to work with his manager Felipe Gomez and look forward to providing Carrillo with the opportunities necessary for him to achieve his dream of becoming a world champion.”

“I’ve always dreamed fighting in the United States and I thank God for making my dream come true,” said Carrillo. “I want to thank Lou DiBella for signing me and giving me this opportunity and my manager Felipe Gomez for helping to make this happen. I am very grateful and happy with the direction that my career will be heading now that I am with one of the best promoters in boxing and have a good manager by my side.”

“I am extremely happy to be part of Carrillo’s team,” said Carrillo’s manager Felipe Gomez. “He is a fighter that had a huge amateur background and will be bringing that experience into the pro ranks. I have big plans for him and I will work relentlessly with Lou DiBella to help Carrillo become a World Champion.”

BADOU JACK TALKS MARCUS BROWNE FIGHT, THE CUT THAT BROKE THE INTERNET & UPCOMING MISSION TO THE MIDDLE EAST

Two-Division World Champion Leaves for International Tour and Goodwill Mission on Behalf of Badou Jack Foundation 
Visit www.BadouJackFoundation.org for more info
LAS VEGAS – Although two-division world champion Badou Jack dropped a decision Saturday night to fellow light heavyweight Marcus Browne, it was the courage and tenacity that he showed in fighting through what some are calling one of the worst cuts in boxing history that has had the sports world buzzing. Jack has since made it clear that his tenacity and heart is motivated by those who benefit from the work of the Badou Jack Foundation. Jack is set to embark on a goodwill mission to the Middle East today as he couldn’t wait to continue his charitable efforts overseas.
His international itinerary includes trips to the Zaatari and Baqaa Refugee Camps in Jordan and business meetings Dubai and London.
“I don’t just fight for myself, I fight for the refugee children and I was thinking of them,” said Jack. “They come from war and often don’t have any parents, so what’s a scratch on my forehead? They are going through something much worse. You have to keep fighting.” 
While many were concerned with the blood that gushed from Jack’s cut round after round, the veteran fighter was able to block it out and continued to fight until the final bell. Although he was taken to the hospital immediately following the fight, Jack was unfazed by the severity of the cut, which was sewn up with nearly 100 stitches. 
“I feel great right now. Things like that can just happen in the ring,” said Jack. “It was just some blood. The cut was only bothering me because I couldn’t see too well, but I was going to keep fighting no matter what. This isn’t just any other sport; its boxing. You have to fight through it.”
And fight through he has. 
“I was definitely going to make my run like I have in the past,” said Jack. “I think most people in boxing know that this would have been a totally different fight. To me, it’s not a big injury. I’m fighting for a bigger cause. Those refugees aren’t going to quit, so I sure wasn’t going to either.”

(Oleksandr) Gvozdyk, let’s go. “I just used my athletic ability and did what I do best, and that’s box the hell out of people. “He couldn’t find me before that (head butt). He couldn’t find me.  I was just too sharp, too slick, too anything.  He was coming with his head all night.  He kept coming with his head. “Like I said, I’m from Staten Island.  Teddy (Atlas) is from Staten Island.  He thinks he has the best light heavyweight?  Gary Stark has the best light heavyweight.  Lets go.”
