A joyful Gary Shaw went on to say, “Alejandro Luna is a great kid with heavy hands and the fans love his approach. Every time he steps in the ring you know something exciting is about to happen. He’s got great skills and good team around him. I have big plans for him in 2012.”
Luna, a twenty year old prospect known for his crowd pleasing style stated, “I’m very excited that I signed with Gary Shaw because I know he’s one of the best promoters in boxing. He’s guided many world champions to the top and I plan to be his next big name. My goal is to say busy this year and continue my success as a prize fighter.”
Alejandro grew up as a “Charro” in a family of Mexican cowboys, who competed in “Charrería’s” around his local area. Deep rooted in his family’s life long tradition, Luna sated, “The definition of a “Charro” is a gentleman’s cowboy. I learned how to ride a horse at a very young age and started competing in local “Charrería’s”, which are rodeo competitions. All my family members from my dad to my uncles are involved in the sport of rodeos, “Charreadas” in Spanish. I juggled both sports growing up, and as an amateur boxer I compiled a record of 90-12. I love to compete and right now my focus is strictly on becoming a world champion in boxing.”
