HOLLYWOOD, FL, March 18 – In boxing, nothing’s more exciting than a knockout. So it goes without saying that with 13 knockout wins in 13 pro fights, Puerto Rico’s Kenny Galarza is rapidly finding his way onto most fans’ ‘must see’ list.
Last Friday night at the Sosua Bay Grand Casino in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, the 24-year old made it a lucky 13 in a row as he halted 34 fight veteran Miguel Casillas in just three rounds.
The victory is Galarza’s second of 2010 already, and the current NABO junior welterweight champion is soaring up the world rankings, as he is currently ranked 11th by the WBO and ready for all comers at 140-pounds.
“Kenny keeps getting better with each bout, and his speed and power are just devastating, even as we lift his level of competition,” said Leon Margules, Executive Director of Warriors Boxing, Galarza’s promoter. “He’s on the verge of stardom and I know he’s putting in the hard work necessary to join the likes of Trinidad, Cotto, and Calderon in the coming years.”
