RISING STAR PROMOTIONS SIGNS FLYWEIGHT MIGUEL CARTAGENA

Atlantic City, NJ (October 10, 2018) – Rising Star Promotions is pleased to announce the signing of Flyweight contender Miguel Cartagena.

Cartagena of Philadelphia has a record of 15-5-1 with six knockouts.

After a stellar amateur, Cartagena turned professional in 2011, and won his first 12 bouts with signature victories over Angel Carvajal (2-0) and Miguel Robles (12-3-2). Cartagena also has an impressive 1st round knockout over Jobert Alvarez (15-1-1).

Cartagena won the IBO International Super Bantamweight championship with a win over Javier Franco.

Cartagena has also fought current undefeated bantamweight world champion Emmanuel Rodriguez as well as former two-division world champion Brian Viloria.

“We are very happy to have signed Miguel Cartagena,” said Rising Star Promotions President, Debbie LaManna.

“He is a terrific boxer who at still age 26, his best fights are ahead of him. We look forward to having him fight on our shows, and eventually a world championship.”

“I am excited for the opportunity to sign with Thomas LaManna and his promotional company. I feel confident because it is someone I can trust,” said Cartagena

“My biggest downfall has been inactivity. I would win a fight, and look great, and then be off for like eight months. So signing with Rising Star will keep me active. If everything goes as planned, I see myself back in the big fights within the next year. I can see myself fighting any and all of the significant fighters in the flyweight or light flyweight divisions

“Look for me back on November 16th”

I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
