I have known Francisco Santana since he was a kid starting his boxing at the local Primo Boxing Club 다운로드. In 2001 when I promoted WBC super bantamweight champion Willie Jorrin to Santa Barbara for a public workout and autograph signing, we let Chia, then 14 years old, spar a couple of rounds with the champ. It was surely a delight for the hometown crowd that came out that day in support.
Chia has certainly captured a world wide crowd with his dedication and focus on what he does second best – the first being a loving husband and father – and that is boxing!
