Jose Pedraza lights up Broadway, stays unbeaten in US Debut

Puerto Rican sensation Jose Pedraza lights up Broadway, stays unbeaten in his United States debut

NEW YORK, NY (Mar 29, 2011) – Under the bright lights of Times Square, 2008 Puerto Rican Olympian Jose Pedraza won for the second time in as many pro bouts. Pedraza dismantled Corben Page in just one round on Tuesday night in the main event of DiBella Entertainment’s Broadway Boxing presented by Coors Light, from the BB King Blues Club in Times Square.

Pedraza dropped Page to his knees with a straight right just moments into the contest. The hard-nosed Page, fighting out of Springfield, Oregon, rose to his feet and fought gamely, but hit the deck again just moments later as Pedraza landed a picture perfect jab. Although Page rose again, Pedraza proceeded to chase him around the ring until referee Joe Cusano waved off the contest at just 2:25 of the first round.

“I felt quick tonight, I had the power,” said Pedraza. “I can’t wait to come back to fight in New York again.”

Pedraza, a member of DiBella Entertainment, Gary Shaw Productions, and Universal Promotion’s Team Puerto Rico, plans to return to New York in June to fight during Puerto Rican Day Parade weekend.
