Boston - Murphys Boxing is proud to announce that we have signed Lightweight prospect, Carlos “The Dragon” Candelario (6-1 3KOs). Candelario from Lawrence, Ma. is a Lightweight prospect with concussive power in both hands. He has amassed a record of 6-1 3KO, but since switching management after a highly questionable loss, he has put together a record of 3-0 with 2KOs. Carlos has had some minor set backs in his career due to injury and multiple fights falling through, but with Murphys Boxing as his new promoter, Carlos is ready to take major steps forward in his career. Having last fought in January 2015, winning a 6 round unanimous decision, Carlos and his legion of fans are excited to be coming back under the umbrella of Murphys Boxing. Carlos has been sparring with world class fighters in preparation for his return to the ring. With an electrifying style, a huge fan base to back him, as well as the tools and team around him, Carlos figures to advance into a national Lightweight contender by 2017.
"My manager gave me a call telling me Murphys Boxing is interested in signing me, I was excited to say the least. Knowing that I now have a well connected promoter backing me, gives me the energy after work to train harder than ever.” said Candelario. “Finding fights in this area isn't easy without a good promoter backing you, and now I have that in Murphys Boxing. I'm motivated and hungry for maximum exposure, I guarantee everyone in Murphys Boxing will be proud they signed me, cause I'm here to become a major player at 135 and 140." concluded Candelario.
“We are excited to have signed Carlos. He has been on the Murphys Boxing radar for some time. We have been to his fights and were always very impressed by the way he fights and by his legion of fans who always pack the place”, said Ken Casey of Murphys Boxing. “We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Carlos and taking the journey with him as he becomes a national contender and beyond. Keep an eye on this kid, because you’ll be hearing a lot about him.” concluded Casey.
