biography

Ranked IBF #11 at 130 pounds…

Just 20 years old, Jose is a three-year pro. A prospect at 130 pounds, he has won 14 fights in a row since having a draw in June, 2010.
He is coming off a third-round TKO win against Meacher Major in his last fight on Decemeber 15.
After the fight, Michael Woods wrote on thesweetscience.com [excerpts]: Jose Felix, Jr. knocked out Meachor Major with a clean left hook in round number three of a lightweight contest that had been fairly close up until that point. Major stumbled down in a delayed reaction all the way to the canvas where the bout ultimately ended…. [End Woods item]
Jose scored one of his career-best wins in his previous fight on September 13, a 10-round unanimous decision against Puerto Rican prospect Luis Cruz.
Advisor Ray Alcorta said, "José trains at the Montiel's gym in Los Mochis. He was training with Manuel Montiel – Fernando's father – but José’s father has been training him full-time now.
"José is a boxer-puncher. He reminds me a little bit of Humberto Soto. He's an upright fighter – he has good height, about 5'10". He has a pretty good punch."
"José has been fighting his whole life. I think it's the right time for him to step up."
