Golden Boy Inks Andrew Cancio
Golden Boy Promotions announced Wednesday that it has added top featherweight contender Andrew "El Chango" Cancio (16-3-2, 12 KOs) from the far desert of Blythe, California to its stable. Cancio is coming off a knockout over the tough Nicaraguan Rene Alvarado.
"Golden Boy Promotions is a highly respected company with a reputation of building fighters," said Andrew Cancio. "I have had a long relationship with them, fighting on some of their undercards and have seen firsthand what they can do for a fighter's career. Signing with them is another accomplishment for me. It shows that anything is possible if you have enough commitment and determination and I am ready to see what will happen in 2016 with Golden Boy Promotions on my corner."
"Andrew Cancio is a talented fighter who seeks to be challenged in the ring and that is just the type of fighter we want to have as part of our family at Golden Boy Promotions," said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. "His ability and his desire to become the best by fighting tough opponents matches our mission, and I know Golden Boy is the right promoter to take him from rising star to top contender."
