Philly’s Young Sensation Milton Santiago Returns – June 28


One of the hardest things for a young, hungry fighter to do is to sit on the sidelines.

After a disappointing string of bouts falling through, 19-year-old Milton “El Santo” Santiago is returning to the hunt on June 28th at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center in PA.  On “Toe-to-Toe Tuesday”, Santiago seeks to extend his undefeated rip through the welterweight division.

Santiago defends his 13-0 (3KO) record against hard-punching veteran Osumanu Akaba [32-10 (25KO)].  Akaba, a Ghanaian southpaw hailing from Alabama, will try to use his ring experience to counter the speed and technical prowess of the younger Santiago.

Doors open at 5:00PM, with more details at the Sands Casino website.

PHILADELPHIA, PA (CBS) — Milt Santiago would walk around William Tennent High School the last two years and there were more than a few times when someone asked where the bruises and cuts on his face came from.

Teachers would approach and query, “What happened?” Then, Santiago would explain—he’s a professional boxer. Even more impressive is Santiago is 11-0, with 3 knockouts, and he started his pro career when he was a junior in high school. The 18-year old’s boxing arc received a nice jolt Saturday night at the Valley Forge Casino when he survived a flash second-round knockdown—the first of his career—and came back to easily win a six-round decision over Puerto Rico’s Jose Miguel Castro (4-5, 2 KOs). Santiago was the best fighter on the nine-fight card.

He showed great poise, ring generalship, and a boxing acumen well beyond his years. That comes from having over 200 amateur fights. He has a bright future ahead—and with it he could be the next generation of elite fighters to come from Philadelphia, joining future Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins and 140-pound champ Danny Garcia.

“This is my 11th pro fight and you figure I would learn something after getting knocked down the first time, and I mean ever, not even as an amateur,” Santiago said. “I don’t think I even got knocked down. I thought I slipped. But I didn’t panic. I knew what I did wrong and I corrected it and finished off the last four rounds. I know where I am. I’m only 18 and I have a lot of years ahead of me. I know I can improve—I want to get better.”
