TBC Talks To Jesse James Leija – Former WBC world champion at super featherweight Jesse James Leija was in Miami this week for the World Boxing Council’s 2016 convention.
Looking back at Leija’s 17 year career, the native of San Antonio finished with a career mark of 47-7-2 and his resume includes fights with some of the biggest names in the sport. Since 2012, Leija has been working with partner Mike Battah on boxing promotion and the pair have produced nearly two dozen fight cards down in his home state of Texas. Leija is never far from the sport so it was not unusual to run into him in Miami for the WBC’s annual convention.
