” I am excited to be getting a promotional deal with GH3 Vito Mielnicki and Luis Ortiz, whom I consider my big brother. He took me under his wing in Cuba when I was a young boy, and told me not to quit, and my dreams would come true. I believe I am on the way to obtaining those dreams. I would like to thank my manager and trainer Herman Caicedo, my new promoters Luis Ortiz and Vito Mielnicki, and I’m excited to showcase my skills and improve to get better as a heavyweight fight by fight. Thank you very much,” said Aguero
“This is a big signing for us. My partner Amaury Piedra and I think that we have a future champion. Ricardo is a terrific prospect from the legendary Cuban amateur program. He has a world class team around him, and because of all of that, we can move him real quickly. Ricardo is a major talent, and we look forward to his development into a championship contender,’ said Vito Mielnicki of GH3 Promotions.
Said two-time heavyweight world title challenger, Luis Ortiz, “I am very excited to be co-promoting with GH3 on this exciting journey for Ricardo Aguero. Ricardo was a young pupil when I was active in Cuba as an amateur, I sort of took him under my wing then, And funny how life works that I will be taking him under my wing again alongside GH3. I look forward to getting him into a promising position in the very near future, at 6’8″ & 270 pounds and trained by the man who transformed me into King Kong Herman Caicedo, he will be a force in the heavyweight division.”
“I have no doubt that Ricardo can and will be a major player in the heavyweight division in the future. As a young 28 year old Heavyweight and 6’8″& 270 pounds, he will most certainly be taken seriously very soon. There is much to develop and learn, but I have no doubt that this new venture will allow him to progress in the ring. I’ve specialized in heavyweights for 30 years of my career, and Ricardo has all the tools that it takes to be great,” said world championship trainer and manager, Hermain Caicedo
