Biography

Originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, Alfonso moved to the United States with his family at the age of 10. Because Alfonso had trouble with speaking English, his peers would constantly torment him. In hopes to each him self-defense, his mother sought out a boxing coach. In the first six months of training, Alfonso’s skill drastically improved and he was later entered into an amateur boxing competition.

Alfonso graduated high school with an 80-10 amateur record and decided to go Pro. He also wanted to get a B.A. degree which meant a move from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The 17-year old was going to move out alone, but his parents wouldn't let that happen. They sold their business and home and moved their three sons to Tustin, California. The entire family has made huge sacrifices to ensure their Alfonso has everything he needs to become a champion. Alfonso wants to give all that they've given back to them and sees this competition as an opportunity to get him closer to his goal. He is confident that he's going to win, and so is his family.

With the help of his father (who is also his trainer) Alfonso, 23, has maintained a record of 10-2-1.

Alfonso fought and lost to Ishe Smith in 2001.
