Sergio Martinez announces signing of Filipino-Norweigian Bernard Torres
Sergio Martinez Maravillabox Promotions had signed a multiyear deal with the Philippine prospect Norwegian based Bernard Angelo Torres (3-0, 2KOs), 21 years old.
Torres is a young talented super featherweight with southpaw stance and a lot of international amateur experience as part of the Norwegian national team.
“I have passion for talented southpaws and he certainly is”, Martinez said. Torres made his three pro fights under Maravillabox banner on shows in Norway and Spain, but only as one-fight deals.
Since now he will officially be a member of the company and the star of the Maravillabox Nordic shows together with his citizen, the European female champion Katharina Thanderz.
“He is a very charismatic and a very special guy. He surprises me since the first time I saw it in his pro debut on last October. I think that he has a very good future”, said matchmaker of the company Oscar Zardain.
Torres keep training in Norway with his lifelong coaches Kjell and Roar Soerum.
His official debut as Maravillabox fighter will be on next May 19 in Elche (Spain), on the undercard of Kiko Martinez-Marc Vidal European title.
“As Muhammad Ali said, the champions are made from something they have deep inside them and Bernard is this kind of guy. He has the smile of the champions”, Martinez finished.
