Jimenez ready to take a step up

Chicago’s Mike Jimenez (11-0-0) will take a big step up in competition when he faces veteran Derrick Findley (20-10-1) September 13th in Hammond, IN.  This will be Jimenez’s first scheduled 8 round bout.  “Hollywood” Jimenez, as he is known amongst his fans, looks like a serious contender in the ring, but his promoter (Bobby HItz) has been taking it a bit slow with him.  Mike’s most impressive win was a 3rd round TKO of Antwun Echols (32-8-4) last November.  A Jimenez win on the 13th would put him on the radar to face a top 50 rated opponent at Super Middleweight.
