Prince Ranch Boxing’s undefeated contender Victor Pasillas (16-0, 9 KOs), after a star-making performance on FS1 PBC Fight Night, is now ranked WBA #8 at super bantamweight. Pasillas picked up his sixth consecutive knockout when he destroyed previously unbeaten Ranfis Encarnacion (17-1, 13 KOs) on September 23, 2020.

Pasillas, who was an East Los Angeles legend in the amateur ranks with a record of 272 wins with only 6 defeats, and 175 RSCs, which is equivalent to knockouts, now wants champions Angelo Leo (20-0, 9 KOs), Brandon Figueroa (21-0-1, 16 KOs), Luis Nery (31-0, 24 KOs) and Murodjon Akhmadaliev (8-0, 6 KOs), and believes he can fight for a world title right now.

“I am the best-kept secret in boxing,” said Pasillas. “My core team and everyone in the boxing industry knows that I’m a world champion in the making. I want to fight Angelo Leo; I know that his style will not work on me; you can’t beat me with just pressure; I am too smart for that. He’s a great champion, but I’ll beat him down if we ever fight.”

Pasillas held nothing back as he let it be known he is unimpressed with the WBA super bantamweight world champion, Brandon Figueroa.

“After watching Brandon Figueroa in his last fight with Vazquez, I confident in myself that I would annihilate him,” continued Pasillas. “Figueroa has never been in the ring with a fighter of my caliber, and I would stop him as well.”

“Luis Nery is a good fighter, but I will take that cat out,” Pasillas resumed. “My footwork, combined with my power, will be too much for him. Once I blast him with a power shot, he’ll be toast.”

Pasillas brought up IBF/WBA super bantamweight world champion Murodjon Akhmadaliev, better known in the United States as M.J.

“And this guy M.J. is supposed to be the guy everyone is afraid of, I want him as well,” Pasillas concluded. “No one is calling him out, so I am, and I will dethrone him too!”

It is clear Pasillas is ready and willing to take a world title shot against any of the champions at super bantamweight; the big question is…will the respected champions accept a fight with this emerging star.

I’m going to take over the 122-pound division one fight at a time until I become champion.”

“There are a lot of big fights that can be made with all the champions at super bantamweight,” said Greg Hannley, CEO of Prince Ranch Boxing. “We want all of them and will fight anyone to land that title shot.”

Saul Sanchez Captures WBA Fedecentro Title, Seeks Big Fights at Super Bantamweight

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 12, 2020) – Thompson Boxing Promotions super bantamweight prospect, Saul “The Beast” Sanchez (14-1, 8KOs), fresh off his first-round victory over David Lozano (15-10-1, 11 KOs), in which he captured he vacant WBA Fedecentro title, is looking to climb up the rankings and land a big fight.

Sanchez, who made his super bantamweight debut, gave an excellent performance scoring three knockdowns in his bout with Lozano, forcing the referee to halt the action with 48 seconds remaining on round one. Sanchez was the aggressor and displayed excellent skill and speed. This was Sanchez’ first time fighting out of his home state of California as he was making his east coast debut at the Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida on Boxeo Telemundo.

“I believe moving up to super bantamweight is where I’ll be most dangerous,” said Sanchez. “After a big win on national television, I feel I’m ready to step up to the next level of competition. I’m hoping to move up the latter and work my way to a big fight, I fell stronger at 122 pounds and this is the weight where I might consider making a run to a world title.”

“Sanchez gave a phenomenal performance this past Friday,” Thompson Boxing General manager, Alex Camponovo stated. “He needed a nice win and worked very hard to earn it. We are hopeful of his future and we know that he is focused on achieving his goals.”

Sanchez plans to get right back to training once he is back home.

“I’ll be ready for what comes next in my career and I am back at the gym. The dream never stops,” concluded Sanchez
