Stockton’s Jaimes Fights For WBC Youth Title on November 21st in Mexico
The crown jewel of Toscano Boxing Promotions, Manuel Jaimes (10-0, 9KOs), of Stockton, California, who trains out of the Stockton PYA with Steve Salas, will return against unbeaten Christian Vazquez (15-0-1, 14KOs), for the WBC super featherweight youth title which will seemingly take place in Mexico.
Jaimes, who has won all of his fights except one by knockout, has had every fight in his career under the guidance of Toscano Boxing Promotions and has been a homegrown talent for the upstart boxing promoter based out of Stockton, California. Jaimes, also has faced stiff competition as Jaimes last three opponent had a combined total of two losses prior to facing him.
Jaimes coach, Steve Salas, credits the footwork of Jaimes for what is allowing the fighter to be fast-tracked into such a big fight, as well as Jaimes is a cardio-warrior able to keep the same pace for eight-and-ten-round fights causing others to diminish and fatigue.
Vazquez, of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, has not faced the same competition until his last bout, defeating 24-2 Russell Flore, but BoxRec states Vazquez didn’t present an ID nor an official license, what adds confusion and red flags to this bout.
The bout which will carry a form of the WBC in its grasps, will also get the winner a world ranking more than in-or-around the top-15 in the weight class.
For Jaimes, a 20-year-old boxer, who will turn 21-years-old next March, this is an amazing opportunity for the young prospect.
