“El Gato” Figueroa now a promotional free agent

New York (March 4, 2008) – NABF junior welterweight champion Frankie “El Gato” Figueroa is a promotional free agent after his deal with Seeno Group recently concluded. Figueroa’s manager, Sal LoNano, is entertaining offers from numerous promoters.

Figueroa (18-2, 13 KOs), who has moved back to the Bronx after living a year in Miami, is rated No. 10 by the World Boxing Council, as well as No. 13 and No. 14 by the International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Association, respectfully.

“Frankie is the reigning NABF champion, world-class fighter and a great kid,” LoNano said. “With a good promoter in his corner, he will become a world champion. We want to thank Attorney Tony Cardinale for the legal advice he gave us.”

U.S. Army veteran Figueroa currently is in Vero Beach (FL) training camp with his trainer, James “Buddy” McGirt, Sr., awaiting his next fight.

“Gato” also is the reigning WBC International Mundo Hispano welterweight and New York State light welterweight title-holder.
