Golden Boy Promotions announced today the signing of Monterrey, Mexico’s Aaron Silva, a middleweight prospect being labeled as a boogeyman with a record of 10 wins, no losses, with seven coming by way of knockout.
This comes on the heels of his fourth-round stoppage win of previously unbeaten Alexis Espino, on the Canelo Alvarez vs. Dmitry Bivol undercard earlier this year in May.
“I am very happy to begin a new stage in my career with my new promoter Golden Boy Promotions who presented the best plan to grow in the sport,” said Aaron Silva about the recent signing. “Infinite thanks to Oscar De La Hoya and Robert Diaz for this big opportunity and the entire team at Golden Boy, my manager Benjamin Rodriguez, my advisor Aldo Moran, my trainers, and for every person that has celebrated every victory with me.”
Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya couldn’t stop singing the praises of Silva.
“Golden Boy has been in the boxing business long enough to see potential star power, and to develop fighters into powerhouses and world champions. We see elements of that hunger to be the best in Aaron Silva, and are excited to have him under our promotional banner to help foster his growth in the middleweight division,” said Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya.
Born in Monterrey, Mexico, Silva started boxing at 13-years-old, winning multiple Golden Gloves tournaments as well as compiling 82 amateur fights, and is trained by Arath Flores in Mexico.
