Brandon Figueroa Primed for Jessie Magdaleno Fight


Brandon Figueroa, recognized as one of the world’s top featherweights and a former junior featherweight titleholder, is gearing up for a pivotal fight against Jessie Magdaleno at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday. Figueroa, who currently holds an interim title at 126 pounds, sees this bout as a gateway to even greater opportunities in his career.

Despite his reputation as a crowd-pleasing fighter known for his aggressive style, Figueroa is eager to showcase his strategic prowess and shed the label of being a mere brawler.


“There’s a method to the madness,” Figueroa stated. “People think I just come forward and punch, but there’s a meticulousness to that. I want to confuse my opponent and not give him the same look.”


Figueroa suffered a disputed majority decision loss to Stephen Fulton Jr. in 2021 but has since bounced back with two victories at featherweight, including a thrilling win over Mark Magsayo.


“I’m a multi-dimensional fighter, and that’s why I’m so dangerous,” Figueroa emphasized.

Hailing from Weslaco, Texas, and following in the footsteps of his older brother, former titleholder Omar Figueroa Jr., Brandon now resides in Las Vegas, where he believes he can access top-tier sparring partners to enhance his skills.


Despite missing his family and home comforts, Figueroa recognizes the importance of stepping out of his comfort zone to achieve success in the ring.

With his fight against Magdaleno taking place on a Saul “Canelo” Alvarez card, Figueroa is determined to make a lasting impression on fans and solidify his status as a force to be reckoned with in the featherweight division.
