De Pina sheds light on his journey, acknowledging the rocky road he’s navigated through six years in the professional ring. With 14 fights under his belt, he feels the urgency to ramp up his game, especially when newcomers are swiftly closing the gap. His partnership with GCP and promoter Chris Traietti, a man of integrity and firsthand boxing insight, spells a new chapter. De Pina is eager for the flurry of fights Traietti promises, aiming to keep him in the thick of the action.

Chris Traietti, GCP’s helmsman, sees untapped potential in de Pina. He’s committed to propelling Jonathan into the spotlight, envisioning a future where major networks will broadcast his fights, signaling his rise in the boxing realm.

De Pina’s boxing roots trace back to his teens, inspired by familial passion and a YouTube stint that his father swiftly redirected towards a more structured path at Peter Welch’s Gym. His affinity for the sport was immediate, a sentiment not entirely shared by his mother.

March 23rd isn’t just about de Pina’s GCP introduction; it’s his Worcester debut too, facing Michael “Titan” Taylor in a significant four-round bout. After a brief stint in the 140-pound division, de Pina returns to his preferred 135, ready and confident.
