Matt Griego brings the power to Young Guns Boxing Card

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Matthew Griego is 5-0 professionally with all of his wins coming by knockout. He hopes to keep his hot start going, as he fights next on the July 9th Young Guns Boxing Card at The Santa Ana Star Center.

Griego was supposed to fight an opponent from Texas, but he just recently backed out. The Diamond Boy may not have an opponent yet, but he is ready for whatever comes his way. It’s a skill he learned from his illustrious amateur boxing career, but one thing that has changed from his amateur boxing style is his power.

“Just power. It came now that I have turned pro and I love it so I try bully, but I mean you are never looking for a knockout because that’s how you get hurt,” said Griego. “You go in there prepared for whatever comes at you, and that’s when a knockout comes and so far they have come to me.”
