  Profile  

Diego Armando Magdaleno is an undefeated Mexican-American boxer in the Super Featherweight division and is the current NABF Super Featherweight Champion.

Magdaleno started boxing as a right-hander. After his first year of training, trainer Kelcie Banks turned Diego into a southpaw.

The young boxer has stayed active in the ring, stepped up in class of opposition in recent fights, climbed in the world rankings and is now ranked No. 9 by the WBA.

Diego was the headliner his last fight on January 22nd at the Texas Station in his hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. Diego fought Martin Jimenez, whom Diego defeated by TKO in the 5th.  

After the fight, The Ring's Michael Rosenthal wrote:

"...Magdaleno has turned into a little monster, one we're going to enjoy watching for a long time. He simply overpowered a capable fighter in Marcos Jimenez. Look for many more KOs from Magdaleno." 

Diego has been featured in the top ten in Ring Magazine's ratings for junior lightweight and is signed by Bob Arum's Top Rank.

"It's great to be ranked in the Top 10, but I'm not going to be satisfied until I'm No. 1. It's only going to motivate me to work even harder to get to where I want to be.... "I think I'm making good progress with my career. I think not rushing into anything was the right thing to do. I'm still learning as I go, and I can see the improvement I've made when I watch tapes of myself."
