Residing in San Diego, California, Giovani Santillan is a name in a hurry to make it to the top of the division, a name which I am sure you will all start to become accustomed to in the near future as the Super Lightweight prospect in February took his unbeaten record up to 19-0, ten of which have come via knockout / stoppage.

The development and the excitement that surrounds Giovani as preempted Thompson Boxing Promotions to make him their headliner for more than a few events as one of their star athletes takes strides in looking for major titles.

ORANGE, Calif – Junior welterweight Giovani Santillan (21-0, 11 KOs) remained unbeaten during Friday’s “Path to Glory” main event from the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, Calf

The steely southpaw from San Diego thoroughly outpointed Mexico’s Omar Tienda (18-4, 11 KOs) through 8-rounds, sweeping all scorecards 80-72.

“At times, he was difficult to hit because he bent down at the waist,” said Santillan, one of Thompson Boxing’s most promising prospects. “In the end it didn’t matter because I found angles on him every round and he never really frustrated me.”

Santillan relied on his jab to control the tempo and later worked in the pocket to land power shots that consistently slowed down Tienda.

“I was able to do what I wanted,” Santillan said. “It was a solid win.”
