Jose Pedraza vs. Juan Carlos Martinez Aug 15th on ESPN2


untitledSANTA YNEZ, CA (August 6, 2014) – Gary Shaw Productions undefeated Super-Featherweight sensation, Puerto Rico’s, Jose “Sniper” Pedraza (17-0, 11 KOs), makes his way back to the ring against Juan Carlos Martinez (20-14-1, 7 KOs) August 15, 2014 as the co-feature to Rustam Nugaev (27-6-1, 17 KOs) vs. Denis Shafikov (33-1-1, 18 KOs). The 10-round bout will air live on ESPN “Friday Night Fights” and will take place at Chumash Resort Casino in Santa Ynez, Calif.

Pedraz, who’s knocked out five of his last seven opponents, is currently ranked WBA #4IBF #7 and WBC #7.  A slick boxer-puncher, Pedraza is not looking past Martinez who recently defeated top contender Alejandro Perez.  He vows to put on a great performance for all the fans in attendance, as well as those watching on TV.

“Martinez is coming off an impressive win against Perez who is a good fighter,” said Pedraza. “I know he’s going to be coming with all he’s got to try to knock me off, but I’ll be ready for anything he brings.  Gary Shaw and Javier Bustillo have once again got me a wonderful opportunity to showcase my skills on an international stage.  A world title fight is right around the corner and I just want to keep getting better with each fight. I’m excited to put on a good show for the fans.”

“Bustillo and I have really seen the improvement in Pedraza with each fight,” said Gary Shaw. “He’s advancing brilliantly.  I know he has the skills to take his career to the next level.  Martinez has a lot of skill and he is going to bring a unique style, but I’m confident Pedraza will use his superior boxing skills to come out victorious.”
