Biography and career[edit]

In his early years José had a successful spell as an amateur winning three Iberian championships and a gold medal in the I.M.T.F. European championships as well as a number of bronze medals in various W.A.K.O. and I.M.T.F. European/world championships. In 2002 he won his first professional title at the K-1 Spain MAX 2002, where he defeated Ante Bilić in the final of the eight man tournament.[2]

In 2004 he won his second K-1 MAX tournament, this time in held in Portugal, defeating his own brother Luis in the semi finals.[3] Despite winning another regional tournament José would not be given the chance to qualify for the K-1 MAX final. In 2005 he signed up with the recently created SuperLeague organization and he had ten fights within the organization between 2005 and 2006, winning four and losing six. His highlight was a runner up position at the SuperLeague Elimination 2006 tournament losing to Jordan Tai in the final.[4]

After the SuperLeague organizations demise at the end of 2006 José won the W.F.C.A. European title and had a spell with the Steko's Fight Night and KlasH promotions, losing out to Yohan Lidon in a fight for the W.K.A. world title.[5] He also returned to amateur action in 2007, picking up a bronze medal[6] and then a silver the following year at the W.A.K.O. European championships. In 2010 he had his most recent success, defeating Gago Drago via controversial decision to claim the W.F.C.A. world title.[7]
