Carlos Caraballo signs with Top Rank ahead of Jonas Sultan fight

Caraballo was last seen knocking out Leonardo Baez in March

Top Rank looks to have high hopes for unbeaten Puerto Rican puncher Carlos Caraballo, as they’ve signed “Purin” to a “multi-year contract” ahead of his bout with Jonas Sultan this Saturday.

Caraballo (14-0, 14 KO), a strong amateur, has yet to go past six rounds as a professional. He last fought in March, stopping Leonardo Baez more quickly than Jason Moloney did in Baez’s previous fight.

Sultan (17-5, 11 KO) previously spent his career at super flyweight, notably beating John RIel Casimero by decision in 2017. He weighed in at a career-high 119 pounds for August’s stoppage of Sharone Carter, which marked his his second win since a 2019 loss to Athenkosi Dumezweni.

Caraballo doesn’t presently sit in any sanctioning bodies’ rankings, but that could change in a hurry, especially if he manages to put down the never-before-stopped Sultan.

Jose Zepeda takes on Josue Vargas in the card’s main event.
