Keith Connolly, manager of the heavy hitting prospect of the second middleweight (up to 76.2 kg), Puerto Rican Edgar Berlanga (15-0-0, 15 KO), compared his ward with the legendary compatriot, ex-three-weight champion Felix “Tito” Trinidad.
“To be honest, I think this is the next Tito Trinidad,” Connolly said in an interview with BoxingScene.com. “And with each of his performances, I am more and more convinced of this. And, well, he likes the pressure.
He wants to be the next Puerto Rican to gather Madison Square Garden for the National Day Parade. I think he has everything for this. He’s attractive, charismatic, and he knows how to knock people out. “
