Rising Mexican super lightweight prospect Jorge Lugo Cota continuing family fighting legacy on “Canela Boxeo”

Aug. 19th Live & Free stream on Canela.tv and Canela Sports from Mexico

LOS ANGELES (August 11, 2022) – The next generation of Mexican boxers is developing and one of the leaders is 20-year-old super lightweight Jorge “Jorgito” Lugo Cota (8-0, 6 KOs), the latest member of Mexico’s famed fightin’ Montiel family, who will be fighting at home August 19th on the next installment of the “Canela Boxeo” series, presented by CANELA BOXEO, and World Cup Boxing Series (WCBS), led by CEO Terry Hollan and promoter/matchmaker Guy Taylor, at Centennial Sports Center in Los Mochis, Sonora, Mexico.

“Canela Boxeo” will be held and streamed live for free the third Friday evening every month, starting at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT, in Mexico.

The 8-round co-featured event will showcase Cota against Jesus Antonio “Chino” Rubio (13-5-2, 7 KOs), the past World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim World super lightweight challenger. Cota was a standout amateur boxer who compiled a record of 155-10, to go along with numerous state and national championship gold-medal performances. Jorge’s uncle, 5-time world champion, Fernando Montiel (54,6 39 KOs), is the color analyst for “Canela Boxeo.”

“I feel very happy to fight in my city, Los Mochis, with my people and family,” Cota said. “I am ready to give a great fight for all the fans and friends. I’m not concerned about fighting in my first scheduled 8-rounder.I feel happy. It’s not something that worries me. I really want to fight and, if the fight goes the distance, I’ll be ready.

“I don’t feel pressure (as a member of the Montiel family), to the contrary, I feel well supported by one of the best teams in the world. I know if I give my best, the result will be positive. I’ve learned many things from my family: work hard - we always work hard in the gym – discipline and, above all, a winning mentality.

“Fighting on Canela.TV will be very good for me so that people throughout the United States and all of Latin America can watch me fight for free. I saw the last event they did in Hermosillo, and it looked very good. I feel very motivated to get into the ring.”

WCBS isn’t concerned about pushing Cota too fast, according to Taylor, who commented: “Jorge isn’t your typical stereotype of what a ‘Mexican fighter’ should be. He’s very elusive with great defense and countering abilities. Jorge has yet to lose a single round during his young pro career.

“I’ve always been known as an aggressive matchmaker, but this might be too aggressive, even for me. We (WCBS) have total confidence in Jorge and the Montiel family. A victory over a former world title challenger on Canela Boxeo will be a huge statement to the boxing world.”

In 2021, Rubio defeated former world-ranked challenger and United States Boxing Association (USBA) Champion Sonny Fredrickson (21-3), earning Rubio an opportunity to challenge undefeated Alberto Puello (20-0) vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim Junior Welterweight World Championship, albeit in a 12-round loss by way of decision

“I don’t know too much about my opponent,” Cota added. “I know that he fought in Los Mochis last year and for a world championship, but I’m not used to seeing my opponents. I do what my family tells me to do in the ring and gym. I’m going to knock him out, probably between the fifth and seventh rounds.”

In a bitter Sinaloa vs. Sonora rivalry fight, WCBS’ newest signing, Manuel Gallegos (19-1, 16 KOs, also fighting out of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, takes on light heavyweight Jesus “Mazo” Moroyoqui (10-1, 7 KOs), of Navojoa, Sonora, in the 8-round main event.
