NEW YORK (September 7, 2018)–Boxing’s deepest management stable just got
richer as Split-T Management is proud to announce the signing of amateur
standout Eric Puente to an exclusive management deal.

Puente, 19 years old of Vista, California by way of Sinaloa, Mexico will
campaign in the lightweight division.

Puente started boxing at the age of eight years-old by his father/trainer,
Ivan.

He went on to win the 2016 National Youth Open Championship and was a
member of Team USA. Puente was a favorite to be a member of the 2020
United States Olympic Team.

Puente, who stands 5’8″ likens his style to a cross between Danny Garcia
and Yuriorkis Gamboa.

“Boxing is everything to me! I live, eat and sleep boxing 24/7. Boxing is
always on my mind,” said Puente. “When the boxing world sees me fight, they
will see an old-school warrior that will do everything he can to come out
victorious,” said Puente. “I take a lot from all the great fighters of the
past like Juan Manuel Marquez, Marco Antonio Barrera, Eric Morales and
Sugar Ray Leonard, and put into me: Eric Puente, future superstar in
boxing!”

“In the midst of talking to all the promoters and managers, David McWater
stood out. My dad and I felt we can trust him. We had a lot of people
saying they can do this and that, but David came thru with everything he
has promised.”

Said Split-T Management CEO, David McWater, “From the first time I saw
Eric, he had superstar written all over him. He just gets better and better
every time I see him.
He has the passion, the skills and work ethic to become a big attraction in
boxing.
This kid is going to be a star!”
