rivera-vs-molina-pelea-karen-marie-orsiniGary Shaw Productions rising stars, Jean Carlos “Chapito” Rivera (2-0, 1 KO) and Luis Paredes (2-0, 1 KO) both return to the ring on October 24, 2014 at the Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida.  The 4-round bouts will take place on the undercard of Orlando Cruz vs. Ruben Tamayo.   This marks the U.S. debut of both Rivera and Paredes who both hail from Puerto Rico.

Paredes, who fights at the featherweight division, recorded his first knockout in his last outing.  He’ll look to do the same against an opponent TBA.  With each fight, Paredes feels he’s growing at a desirable pace. 

“Every time I step in the ring I’m learning something new,” said Paredes. “I’m constantly trying to improve on my jab and footwork.  I’m just looking to stay busy and keep learning with each fight.  My promoter Gary Shaw is doing a great job and I want to thank him and my whole team for their hard work.”

Rivera will look to continue his success at the Super-Bantamweight division when he faces an opponent TBA.  With an extensive amateur career, Rivera is adjusting well to the professional ranks.

“I really love fighting in the pros,” said Rivera. “When I go to the body the punches really count.  With a few more fights under my belt I feel my power will come naturally.  Most of the time the knockout comes when you stay relaxed and just go to work.  I plan to do that in this fight. My goal is to continue winning and become one of Gary Shaw’s best fighters.”

“I’m very pleased with the attitude both of these young men possess.” said Gary Shaw. “They’re humble in their approach but confident in their ability.  I’m really looking forward to seeing them both grow as fighters.”
