DANBURY, CONNECTICUT (April 29, 2014) - Undefeated, hard hitting Junior Middleweight prospect Frank "Notorious" Galarza, 13(9)-0-2 , has inked a new multi fight managerial contract with A.J. Galante. Galante, President of the professional boxing management company, Elite Boxing Enterprises, has guided Galarza over his last 5 bouts.
"I'm very excited to continue to work in managing Frank." Galante stated, "Our first year together has been extremely busy and successful. I recognized from the first time I met Frank he has what it takes to be a World Champion, and I look forward to guiding him there. We are both young, hungry, and have something to prove to the boxing world, and we will accomplish everything we set out for."
Galarza is the current WBC Latino Junior Middleweight Champion, and ranked #30 in the world by the sanctioning body. Fighting out of Brooklyn, NY, Galarza is also the current New York State Junior Middleweight Champion. Over his first 13 fights, he became an instant fan favorite in New York's club fight scene with his aggressive, brawling style. This past January however he took a National TV audience by surprise, by brutally knocking out then undefeated prospect John Thompson, just seventeen seconds into the second round. The fight was broadcasted live on Showtime's Shobox series. Galarza is excited to continue his relationship with Galante and Elite Boxing Enterprises, "It's an honor to be with a great manager like A.J. who dedicates his time, and constantly looking out for me both inside the ring and out. He was one of the first people to ever believe in me in Boxing, and we are the true definition of a team. He may be young but has a smart mind for the business. We're both growing in this sport together."
The Twenty Seven year old Galante founded Elite Boxing Enterprises in 2011, and has been managing boxers for three years. He guided former client Delvin Rodriguez over a span of 6 fights, from a year layoff in 2011, to the biggest fight of his career against Miguel Cotto in October of 2013. Galante originally signed Galarza in April 2013.
