Alejo ready for Gonzalez – “Boxeo Telemundo” Returns For Its Final Season Of 2018
The old saying goes “Its not how you start but how you finish” this proves right for WBO #15 WBC #24 Juan “Pinky” Alejo (24-5-1 14 KO) who started off losing his first 3 fights but later resurrected his career and won the next 20 bouts in a row.
This amazing accomplishment earned him his first WBO world title opportunity, where he dropped a unanimous decision to 3x world champion & Philipino legend Donnie “Ahas” Neites. Alejo, didn’t let the defeat phase him and continued his winning ways adding 5 more bouts to his column before stepping up for another vacant title shot against Angel “Tito” Acosta at the Madison Square Garden in what was Miguel Cotto’s farewell from boxing. Although Alejo came up short in his second attempt, he feels those fights gave him the experience he needs to defeat Jonathan “Bomba” Gonzalez.
Alejo Stated: I started my career with 3 losses and never doubted myself at any moment, i took a short break and now i am ready for my Telemundo debut next Friday. I have been training for 2 months already and all my experience i have acquired throughout my career fighting legends, will make me victorious on Friday night.” He continued “Bomba” Gonzalez better be ready, because on November 16th he’s in for a treat”
