Jessie Magdaleno Talks To TBC – The announcement came down recently that WBO world super bantamweight champion Jessie Magdaleno (24-0) would be making the first defense of his title on April 22nd when promoter Bob Arum and Top Rank have reserved the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
Magdaleno has signed to face Brazil’s Adeilson Dos Santos (18-2) as one of three world title fights. Magdaleno won the belt this past November when he defeated veteran champion Nonito Donaire on the undercard of Manny Pacquiao’s PPV fight with Jessie Vargas. Magdaleno won a unanimous decision that saw his speed and precision make the difference against the highly skilled Donaire. At 25 years old, Magdaleno is looking for a long title reign and it all begins again in April.
As for dos Santos, his resume is built up mainly fighting in his home country, but one of his career losses came in England at the hands of undefeated Kid Galahad, whom he took twelve rounds. Dos Santos is on a three fight winning streak and all three of those wins have come by way of stoppage.
