Contenders Clothing is proud to announce the newest member of Contenders Fight Club, Jessie Magdaleno!
Magdaleno (27-1, 18 KOs), the former WBO Super Bantamweight World Champion, fights this Saturday at Madison Square Garden Theater live on ESPN against the undefeated power puncher, Sakaria Lukas (23-0, 16 KOs).
As the WBC’s current #1 contender in the featherweight division, a win over the undefeated Lukas would earn the 28 year old southpaw a title shot later this year and the chance to become a two division world champion.
“I’m excited to announce I’m teaming up with one the best boxing apparel companies out there, Contenders Clothing, as the newest member of their Fight Club.”, says Magdaleno.
“When I get involved with a brand, it’s important to me they are legitimate fans of the sport. With the team at Contenders, boxing is a passion for them and they go out of their way to support fighters at all levels. I’m excited to have Contenders on board as I show the fans why I deserve to be a 2 time world champion.”
As Contenders Clothing CEO, Jonathan Snyder explains.
“It’s always been important to us to work with fighters who are not only exciting in the ring but are also good people out of it. Beyond being a world class fighter, Jessie is involved in charity work, helps mentor youth at his gym in Las Vegas and is one of the most accessible and friendliest fighters out there. He is a natural fit to represent Contenders Fight Club and we’re excited to be a part of his journey to a second world title in one of the most exciting divisions in boxing.”
