8 COUNT PRODUCTIONS SIGNS WELTERWEIGHT PROSPECT FRANCISCO RINCON
8 Count Productions, HOME OF THE BEST IN CHICAGO BOXING has announced that welterweight prospect Francisco Rincon has signed an exclusive promotional agreement, it was announced today by Dominic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions.
Rincon, a native of Coahuila, Mexico now fighting out of Dallas, Texas carries a professional record of 11 wins, 6 by knockout and 3 losses. He most recently appeared on the 8 Count Productions’ MADNESS IN MARCH event at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom on March 17th scoring a fourth round stoppage over Gilbert Venegas in a co-main event battle broadcast internationally on Telefutura’s SOLO BOXEO series.
Said Pesoli, “Francisco is a highly skilled kid, he’s only 22 and has great potential in the welterweight division. He’s almost six feet tall and his height coupled with his boxing skills and toughness should serve him well.”
“He’s fought twice on our shows; the first was a second round knockout of Fabian Luque last April at Cicero Stadium and then he stopped Gilbert Venegas two months ago. Jerry (Alfano, 8 Count matchmaker) and I along with our fans were very impressed.”
Continued Pesoli, “We’re hoping for big things from Francisco and looking forward to working with him to further his career. I’ll have an announcement of his next fight very shortly.”
Along with his stoppages over Venegas and Luque in Chicago, Francisco Rincon’s three year pro career also includes wins over welterweight prospects Frankie Figueroa and Juan Antonio Lopez. He made his pro debut at the age of 19 with a decision over Eddie Neal on August 2, 2002 in Odessa, Texas.
Francisco is also a team member of welterweight world champion Antonio Margarito’s training camps in Southern California.
