Gary Shaw Signs Four Prospects Out of Puerto Rico

TOTOWA, NJ (May 2, 2007) -- Gary Shaw announced the signing of four undefeated contenders from Puerto Rico. Joining the roster of Gary Shaw Productions are: featherweight ORLANDO CRUZ (12-0, 6 KOs), jr. middleweight EMANUEL GONZALEZ (7-0, 3 KOs), super bantamweight VICTOR FONSECA (4-0, 2 KOs), and lightweight FERNANDO TORRES (2-0, 1 KO). Combined, they have a perfect record of 25-0, 12 KOs..

"These young men are real fighters and when I saw them in action in Puerto Rico I couldn't wait to sign them," said Shaw. "They fight with a real hunger and with real power. They train hard and they fight harder. They have real talent and great amateur pedigrees. I cannot wait to show them off on all my future cards."

Gonzalez boasts an amateur resume that includes a gold medal at the PanAmerican Games. In his debut under the GSP banner, he scored a fifth-round of Roberto Irrazary on April 7 in Springfield, MO. Cruz also made his GSP debut on that same card, scoring a six-round unanimous decision victory over Ricardo Medina. Cruz and Torres will be making their GSP debuts later this summer.
