Undefeated Filipino Bantamweight Judy Maraon Signs with Gary Shaw
Published Jan 27 2012 by: ProBoxing-Fans.com
Gary Shaw Productions and undefeated WBO Asian Pacific bantamweight champion, Jundy "Pretty Boy" Maraon (14-0-1, 11 KOs) have come terms with an exclusive promotional agreement. Jundy hails from Sominot, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines and looks to someday fight in the United States.
Known for having power in both hands Maraon stated, "It's exciting to be represented by Gary Shaw Productions, one of the best promotional companies in boxing. My style is fun to watch because I like to knock out my opponent every time I step into the ring. I represent the Filipino nation with pride and would like to fight in the USA someday. I hope to be fighting for a world title in the near future.
Gary Shaw loves knockout artists and Maraon fits that mold.
Shaw went on to say, "What we have here in Jundy Maraon is a fighter that loves to go see his opponent hit the canvas. He's a tremendous talent and I see him fighting at the elite level someday. Right now I want to keep him busy while he learns his craft and bring him to the USA after a few more fights. I'm excited that he's joined our stable of great young fighters. Our company is building its foundation on a global scale."
Of course, he wouldn't bet the first undefeated Filipino fighter in the bantamweight class to start making noise in the United States. He'd be following in the footsteps of The Filipino Flash - Nonito Donaire - whom Gary Shaw is quite familiar with. Donaire's breakout moment was his stunning knockout of Vic Darchinyan.
