Thompson Boxing Promotions signed Mexican prospect Francisco Armenta (8-0, 2 KOs) in November 2016.
“I’m really happy and motivated to start my career as a professional,” said Vizcarra, who had approximately 250 fights as an amateur. “I think boxing fans will enjoy watching me fight. I like to press the action.”
Armenta, a junior welterweight who captured numerous national and regional tournament titles in his native country, debuted on Feb. 10, 2017 against Cody Peterson from the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, Calif.
Armenta used his superior talent to consistently frustrate Peterson – winning with scores 39-37 and 40-36, twice.
Armenta would go on to record five victories in 2017 and three in 2018.
