Daniel Uribe, a Chilean amateur standout, has signed a long-term deal with Tony Tolj’s Dragon Fire Boxing.
Uribe comes from a host of standout South Americans and joins Tolj’s ever-growing international stable that includes top contenders Andrew and Jason Moloney.
Uribe discussed turning professional and outlined his hopes moving forward. He said, “Turning professional with Tony Tolj, who is a great leader of men is a wonderful blessing in my life and I thank God for this and my team in Chile who have made this possible.
“I won 3 national titles and the WBC amateur tournament at 56 and 60kg, so I want to continue that success in the professional side of the sport. I want to be the future of boxing and I want my name to be printed in history.
“Tony has done an amazing job with Andres Campos who is from Chile also, so I want to follow in his footsteps and move quickly into the world ratings. I was 37-3 as an amateur and I hope to continue that success as a professional.”
Tolj weighed in on his latest signing, “Daniel is another quality addition to our stable and I am delighted to have him.
“He is a fun fighter to watch and is definitely a television standard fighter. That’s what we all want to have as part of our stables, so I want to bring him along the same way we did with Andres Campos and continue to put Chile on the boxing map.”
