Seems like just yesterday that we were inside of the doors of the Pound 4 Pound Boxing Gym in Las Vegas watching young twins Angel and Chavez Barrientes make noise well before hitting their teenage years.
Now both 17 years of age, Angel and Chavez both recently had successful pro debuts this past Thursday evening in Tijuana, Mexico. The result, that sees both Barrientes twins move to 1-0 (1 KO), was a first round knockout for each fighter.
