ORANGE, CA (June 10, 2011) – Just two weeks away from his next boxing match, junior welterweight Jose Reynoso (14-2-1,  2KOs) has signed with southern California-based Thompson Boxing  Promotions.

“We are proud to add Jose Reynoso to our roster of future world  champions,” said promoter Ken Thompson. “He is a determined, salacious  southpaw, with amazing hand speed.”

Born in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, Reynoso, who now resides  in the city of Riverside, California, made his professional debut under  Thompson Boxing in November of 2003. He will now make his debut under  the promotional firm's edition of “Locked N' Loaded,” on Friday, June  24, at the Doubletree Hotel, Ontario, when he faces Esteban Almaraz  (10-3, 4 KOs) in an eight round bout.

“We are very excited to conduct the career of a Jose Reynoso  particularly because he turned professional on a Thompson Boxing card  many years ago.  We have been able to witness the steady growth of his  boxing abilities. Jose truly has the potential to be an elite  prizefighter.  We are always interested in home grown fighters with the  goal of building their careers and making a splash nationally,” said  Thompson upon signing his new protégé.

Added Charly Perez, Reynoso's co-manager: “We are excited to sign  with Thompson Boxing.  They are a thriving promotional company with a  clear understanding of our goals and they will be happy with Jose's work  ethic.  The synergy that we have will certainly take Reynoso to the top  of his division where he belongs.”

“I have been fighting on Thompson Boxing Promotions cards for some  time now and signing with them feels like a natural progression.  I  already felt as if I was part of the Thompson Boxing Promotions family  so when my managers suggested it, I did not hesitate.  I knew it was  where I belonged and where I wanted to be,” said Jose Reynoso.

Continued Reynoso, 27, “I feel very grateful and even more confident  with Thompson Boxing as my promoter.  I am excited for my fight on June  24 and to officially be under their banner, it's my home away from  home.”

The Reynoso vs. Almaraz bout will co-headline the June 24 edition of  “LOCKED N' LOADED” that is scheduled to take place at the Doubletree  Hotel in the city of Ontario, California.  The event is sponsored by  LUCAS OIL “It Works!” and will air on FOX DEPORTES at a later date.
