Boxing Spotlight: Jordan “Shortdog” White

Washington, DC native, Jordan “Shortdog” White is looking to make a name for himself in the 130-pound division.

The 22 year-old is 10-1 with eight knockouts.

White was 145-16 as an amateur including nine national championships.

His only loss as a professional took place in his fourth fight. He lost to fellow undefeated fighter, Adam Lopez. White fought part of the six round bout with a broken hand.

“That loss was a big lesson , and I learned a lot in that fight. Since then, every camp has been better then the previous one. It has made me to keep pushing harder, and it has shown me to kick things into an extra gear,” said White.

In his last figher, White stopped undefeated, Ronaldo Solis, in the 7th round. With the win, White captured the WBC Youth Intercontinental Super Featherweight title.

“Hopefully by this time next year, I expect to be on a lot of the lists of the top prospects, and have my fights being shown on all the major platforms. I think because of that, I will have the opportunity to sign with a big promoter and guide me towards a world title.”
