"In light of Juan's amazing performance against the WBA number nine 135lber Jorge Noriega this past Friday, I am here to inform everyone that "El Novelista" is ready to step up and challenge anyone at 140lbs in the USA," said Mosquera's representative Mike Altamura. "Juan completely dismantled Noriega, a fighter who on his four previous visits to Panama had recorded four KO victories, including an annihilation of lightweight world title challenger Miguel Callist earlier this year.
"Juan's only loss in his last five years was a flat out robbery in Venezuela. Outside of that atrocity, he has won 12 contests during that period, including 10 by KO. He is a well-credentialed and intelligent fighter with a fan friendly style. He's old school. And the good news, at age 28 he's still improving.
"Juan currently is a free agent, and we are ready and willing to negotiate with anyone interested. I say this to all promoters and matchmakers out there, if America is the land of opportunity then give this kid a chance. This kid deserves a chance to shine, and I guarantee you "El Novelista" won't disappoint.
"To all interested parties, you can contact me, Mike Altamura, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org"
