    Juan



    Harlingen, TX
    Age: 18
    Occupation: Boxer
    Height: 5'9"
    Weight: 157lbs
    Professional Record: W 12, L 0, Draw 1, KO 11

    Juan is the youngest fighter of the group at 18 years old. He is not only articulate for his young age, but he is also extremely sweet natured and really lights up when he smiles. Juan, his father and three siblings live with his grandmother in a tiny two-bedroom house in South Texas near the Mexican border. They are an extremely close-knit, fun-loving family and wrestle and poke fun at each other constantly.

    A very influential person in Juan's life who encouraged him to become a boxer died over a year ago - his grandfather. Juan wears a lanyard with his grandfather's picture on it around his neck immediately before and after every fight. He says he feels his grandfather's presence at every fight. With his grandfather at ringside, he won his first outing as a Pro at age 15 (in Mexico) and has since amassed an impressive 12-0-1 record.

    Juan is a power puncher and is extremely confident is his abilities. He says his older opponents don't take him seriously - until he knocks them out.

    I love that

    So young, but with a very impressive record.
    Looks like he's shaping up to be very successful.

    He sure does have a baby face. I'm hoping he can stand toe to toe, without getting hurt, with the more experienced guys.

    I like him. He kind of looks like Pharrell Williams to me.

    I wasn't at all impressed with his "boxing" bout with Tarick. I think Juan has a lot of rough edges that need to be smoothed over, and The Contender wasn't the place for him.
