Taras Shelestyuk is 27 and only has three professional fights, so he certainly has not had an early start to his pro career. But he is destroying the competition, which bodes well for the 2012 Olympic bronze-medal winner from Sumy, Ukraine.
Shelestyuk this past Friday defeated Mario Angeles of Mexico via second-round technical knockout at Doubletree Hotel in Ontario on a Thompson Boxing Promotions card.
Shelestyuk is now 3-0 with three knockouts. He is co-promoted by Banner Promotions and Thompson Boxing.
“We are very happy with Taras,” said Arthur Pelullo, CEO of Banner Promotions. “He had an outstanding performance and he is moving at a great pace. He has fought three times in less than two months and he continues to get better with each fight.”
Shelestyuk trains out of the Wild Card gym in Hollywood.
