Jesse Garcia

At the age of 22, Jesse is a two-year pro. A sensational young prospect at 126 pounds, he has an aggressive, hard-hitting style and is a fan favorite.

In his last fight on February 17 in El Paso, Texas, he won a six-round split decision against Jeremy Longoria.

The bout was on the undercard at the Don Haskins Convention Center, and was Jesse’s first scheduled six rounder. Longoria gave a strong effort and it was a good fight, but Jesse pressed forward, landed the sharper punches, and had the edge in several rounds. The judges scored 59-55, 58-56 Garcia, 60-54 Longoria.

Jesse said, “I train at the Elite Boxing Academy in Houston. It’s my trainer’s gym – Rudy Silva has been my trainer, I think, for about four or five years now, since back in the amateurs. I like to start training early for all of my fights.

“I work out with Rogelio Ortega, Marlen Esparza, Rodolfo Silva, who is coach Rudy’s son, and some other young kids whose main goal is the Olympics, and Romalin Martinez. We’ve got a strong team.

“I’m an aggressive fighter, very aggressive. the guys I look up to most are Mike Tyson, Roberto Duran, Triple G – those guys are all power hitters. They know they can hit hard, but they also put in boxing, they put in speed, they like to change it up. That’s what I continually work on, so I can rely on more than just power, because if I ever run into someone who can take a punch, that just won’t go down, I’ve got boxing to rely on and I can work behind the jab.

“When it comes time to get ready for a fight, it’s all or nothing. I’m always dedicated, I become very strict with myself. I don’t go out, I go to bed early, 9:30 or 10:00.

“I work hard to make Top Rank feel like they didn’t make a mistake in signing me. I didn’t have any Olympic background or national champion background, but they saw something in me and I want them to continue to see that. It’s truly a blessing – they are the best promoters in the world.

“I don’t use a nickname.”
