It’s been a few years since I first crossed paths with Damien Vasquez.

Then just 16 years old, there was a special kind of underground buzz about Vasquez at the time, with some claiming that the young Colorado native was even going heads up in sparring at the time with seasoned professionals.

For bantamweight contender and WBO #6 ranked Alexis Santiago, new doors are beginning to open.

It’s been about four years since Santiago (18-3-1, 8 KO’s) walked through the doors of the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, Nev. and the 24-year old hasn’t left anything to waste during his training in that time.

Having won his last seven bouts, Santiago’s spirits are as high as ever with the recent news of his signing with Mayweather Promotions. The Phoenix native’s first assignment under his new promoter is a Sept. 8 date in Hollywood, Calif. against Fernando Lumacad from the Philippines.

On Saturday night, inside of the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix, Ariz., upcoming prospect Alexis Santiago produced the biggest victory of his career in stopping Alex Rangel in the ninth round.

With the victory, Santiago improved to 15-3-1 with 7 knockouts while also capturing the WBC USNBC bantamweight championship.

The 22-year old Santiago was in control of the tempo of the bout from the outset and seemed pleased with his performance.

“It felt great, especially because it was against a very tough opponent and I needed this fight,” Santiago would state on Sunday afternoon. “The fight was a great fight where I boxed well and at times stayed inside and fought. I felt I was doing a great job boxing but maybe could have used my jab more.”
