Welterweight prospect, CSUSB student Artemio Reyes not just a prospect


Fight Network — As Artemio Reyes readies for his Friday, July 26, fight with the veteran Sergio Perez, he will do so with a lot on his mind and even more on his plate. Reyes, a welterweight out of California’s Inland Empire, is a triple-threat boxer in the non-conventional sense.

“I am a full-time boxer with Thompson Boxing Promotions, full-time business student at CSU San Bernardino and the manager at my family’s Mexican restaurant El Taquito in Colton,” said Reyes, who has knocked out his opponent in the second round in three out of his last four fights. “People ask all the time how I manage all three responsibilities. I don’t know what to tell them, I just do. I don’t really go out. I just handle my business.”
