In Arizona he fought with highly touted prospect Jose Benavidez three times, in their second fight Jorge "Maromero" Páez gave the winner a trophy.[2] In January 2010 he refused an offer by Mexican amateur authorities, for an opportunity to make the 2012 Olympic team, instead he decided on a professional career.[3]
