Winner of the Brisco Award’s 2014 Rookie of the Year goes to Milton Santiago! Congratulations Milton!

“2014 was an excellent year for Philly-area rookies. Kyrone Davis (Wilmington) and Avery Sparrow (Philadelphia) both shined in their first ring season, but Philly’s Milton Santiago took the award as the “Rookie of the Year” for the excellent 8-0, 3 KOs, stretch that launched his career. Santiago turned pro in February 2014, at the tender age of 17 and never looked back. He stayed busy fighting seven more times. “El Santo” did not only faced typical rookie-level competition, he also stretched against a few tough veterans (Travis Thompson, Josh Beeman and William Lorenzo) with losing records but tough reputations. Santiago passed every test that came his way and promised bigger and better things in the future.”
