World Cup Boxing Series (WCBS), created by CEO Terry Holland and promoter/matchmaker Guy Taylor, has announced the signing of Mexican super middleweight Manuel “El Meno” Gallegos (19-1, 15 KOs) to a long-term, exclusive promotional contract.
“Aside from Canelo Alvarez,” Taylor noted, “the average boxing fan couldn’t name another super middleweight from Mexico. Well, here is the 6’ 3”, 25-year-old Manuel Gallegos from Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico.”
Gallegos’ most notable victory to date is a 10-round unanimous decision over Kevin Newman II (11-2-1) on June 10, 2021. Gallegos’ last action was last October when he stopped Gabriel Lopez (10-5-1) in round five. Gallegos has also defeated Marco Reyes (37-7) – former WBC Youth International and Mexican light middleweight, and WBC FECOMBOX middleweight champion –by way of an 8-round unanimous decision in 2019.
“The biggest fight for Gallegos right now is a Mexico versus Puerto Rico showdown with Edgar Berlanga (20-0, 16 KOs),” Taylor added.
Gallegos joins a growing WCBS family of gifted fighters including undefeated 20-year-old Mexican lightweight prospects Luis “Koreano” Torres (16-0, 10 KOs), the reigning WBC Latino Champion, Jorge Lugo Cota (8-0, 5 KOs) and Marco Cota Moreno (7-0, 5 KOs), as well as 2-time world title challenger “Mighty” Aston Palicte (28-5-1, 24 KOs), a Filipino bantamweight.
