Kings Promotions continues to grow its roster of Dominican fighters by signing middleweight Anibal Cleto Francisco to a multi-year promotional agreement. The 22 year-old Francisco is 10-0 with 9 KOs as a professional. In his last fight on July 2nd, Cleto Francisco got a fifth-round knockout win over Venezuela's Yeison Gonzalez (16-7). Francisco, who is trained by Roberto Peralta, is scheduled to fight on February 24th in his native country on a card promoted by Shuan Boxing. He is managed by Harry Polanco and advised by Trifon Petrov.
For Francisco, signing with Kings Promotions is a dream come true. “Since I started boxing I always wanted to get the chance to go to America and compete with the best. I’m very grateful to Harry Polanco for making this opportunity a reality. Adding Trifon Petrov as my adviser and Marshall Kauffman as my promoter is the next step of my development as a professional boxer. I can’t wait to represent my country on the biggest stages in America”, said Cleto Francisco.
Polanco is excited to partner up with Kings Promotions. “I’ve worked with Anibal since the beginning of his professional career. He is one of the most dedicated fighters I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and I’m happy we are able to partner up with a big promoter from the United States, so we can take the next step in his career. He has a very fan-friendly fighting style, and I know the fans in the US will love him when he gets the opportunity to fight on the big stage and national television,” said Polanco.
