Javier Martinez wins Pro Debut in Shutout Fashion over Ryan Burrs in Las Vegas
Thu, 16 Jul 2020
NEW YORK (July 15, 2020) - Highly regarded prospect Javier Martinez made a successful professional debut by winning a four-round unanimous decision over Ryan Burrs in a middleweight bout at The MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Martinez is under the guidance of Split-T Management's Tom VanNewhouse.
Martinez boxed well and featured a strong right hook, especially to the body. He made Burrs back up on several occasions with those hard right hooks as the tall southpaw won by scores of 40-36 on all cards.
With the win, the 24 year-old native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin is now 1-0.
"I went in there with a game-plan that I thought that I was fighting a southpaw. I quickly adjusted. I should have used my jab more. In my next fight, I will fix that, and I will have my full team with me," said Martinez.
"I could tell that I was working the body well. Those right hooks were very effective, and I am happy to win my pro debut. I will get back in the gym and work on the things that I need to work on, and I will keep getting better with each fight."
