Cancio has long been considered one of California’s rising stars, but after several starts and stops, he showed what he can do against boxing warrior Rene “Gemelo” Alvarado in December of 2015, scoring a stirring knockout victory.

“Andrew Cancio is a talented fighter who seeks to be challenged in the ring and that is just the type of fighter we want to have as part of our family at Golden Boy Promotions,” said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “His ability and his desire to become the best by fighting tough opponents matches our mission, and I know Golden Boy is the right promoter to take him from rising star to top contender.”

“Golden Boy Promotions is a highly respected company with a reputation of building fighters,” said Andrew Cancio. “I have had a long relationship with them, fighting on some of their undercards and have seen firsthand what they can do for a fighter’s career. Signing with them is another accomplishment for me. It shows that anything is possible if you have enough commitment and determination and I am ready to see what will happen in 2016 with Golden Boy Promotions on my corner.”

A professional since 2006, Blythe, California’s Andrew “El Chango” Cancio has had a successful career facing some of boxing’s toughest featherweight contenders. The talented 27-year-old holds victories over perennial contender and 2000 U.S. Olympic Silver Medalist Rocky Juarez, the battle tested Jerry “The Corpus Christi Kid” Belmontes, and is coming off an impressive seventh round knockout of tough warrior Rene “Gemelo” Alvarado.
