CHICAGO, IL, February 20, 2011 — Dominic Pesoli’s 8 Count Productions, HOME OF THE BEST IN CHICAGO BOXING, announced the signing today of three sensational young undefeated prospects to exclusive promotional contracts.

Joining the 8 Count Productions roster are Chicagoans Adrian Granados, Achour Esho and Ramiro Carrillo.

“It’s a great day for 8 Count Productions and these terrific young warriors and just as important for the fight fans of Chicago. All three are very popular, exciting prospects and we plan to keep them very busy on our WINDY CITY FIGHT NIGHT series at our home, the UIC Pavilion,” said Pesoli.

The 21 year old Granados known as ‘EL TIGRE,’ 5-0-0 with three knockouts, is coming over a sensational second round stoppage of Justin Danforth in their scheduled six round junior welterweight bout on December 17th at the UIC Pavilion.

Welterweight Esho thrilled the huge crowd at the UIC Pavilion on January 28th with a jaw dropping fifth round knockout of Corey Rodriguez to improve his record to 10-0-0 with seven stoppages.

Only 20 years old, junior welterweight ‘EL LOBITO’ Carrillo improved to 4-0-0 with two knockouts with a shutout four round decision over Clifford McPherson on the January 28th event.

Continued Pesoli, “Granados and Carrillo fought numerous times as amateurs and they’ll both be fighting on our upcoming card on April 1st. They both want to fight each other and ideally we’ll try to make that fight this year. Talking to each there seems to be some unfinished business that only a fight in the professional ranks can solve.”

“Esho is a little further along in his career with more fights than the other two. He also had what you could call the ‘Arturo Gatti’ moment in his career on our last show. He was knocked down hard in the fourth round by Rodriguez and was bleeding pretty badly, but came back to earn the knockout in the next round. The huge crowd at the UIC Pavilion was thrilled by his performance.”

“We’re very proud to welcome each of these warriors to the 8 Count Productions team,” said Pesoli.

Other fighters under the 8 Count Productions banner include super middleweight contender Donovan ‘DA BOMB’ George, light heavyweight prospect Andrzej ‘THE POLISH PRINCE’ Fonfara, undefeated junior welterweight prospect Ivan Popoca, welterweight prospect Jaime Herrera and junior middleweight Luciano Perez.

Details of the next 8 Count Productions event, WINDY CITY FIGHT NIGHT 16 set for Friday, April 1st at the UIC Pavilion will be announced shortly.

8 Count Productions, HOME OF THE BEST IN CHICAGO BOXING, was started by Dominic Pesoli in 1998 and has consistently presented the highest quality professional boxing events in Chicagoland.
