Zachary ÒZungryÓ Ochoa, of Brooklyn, New York has already accrued an impressive record staying undefeated since his professional debut at the age of 19 in 2011.
Carrying on Brooklyn’s tradition of excellence in the ring, Williamsburg’s Zachary Ochoa is a decorated amateur boxer now making his mark as a professional prizefighter. On July 11, 2015, he earned his 12th consecutive victory with a big win over David Rodela in Los Angeles, California.
In the gym since the age of 13, Ochoa went on to win several amateur titles, including two New York State Junior Olympics titles and the NY State Metro championship. After graduating high school, Ochoa turned professional on September 10, 2011 with a fourth round technical knockout of William Ware.
Ochoa’s next two opponents, Cody Osborne and Michael Salcido, weren’t so lucky, as they were each stopped in under a round, and after a four round decision win over Calvin Smith on April 27, 2013, the promising 147-pounder scored back-to-back unanimous decision victories over Michael Doyle and Jose Valderrama to lead him into another winning effort against Hector Marengo on the Bernard Hopkins-Beibut Shumenov undercard on April 19, 2014.
In Ochoa’s last two bouts of 2014, he thrilled his Brooklyn fans at Barclays Center with decision victories over Luis Alberto Cervantes and Jose Miguel Castro to cap off a 4-0 campaign. In 2015, Ochoa didn’t remove his foot from the gas pedal in the slightest, knocking out Engelberto Valenzuela, decisioning Moises Rios and the battle-tested Rodela, and defeating Jose Rodriguez via technical knockout to round out the year.
“Zungry” has not missed a beat in 2016, earning a unanimous decision win against Rosbel Montoya on March 5, and knocking out Luis Gonzalez on June 3. In his last appearance in the ring, Ochoa maintained his undefeated status in a matchup that went the distance against Daniel Montoya on September 17 on the undercard of Canelo Alvarez vs. Liam Smith at AT&T Stadium.
He lost by RTD in the match up against Canadian Yvez Ulysse for the vacant Junior NABF Super Lightweight title under the Lemieux versus Stevens HBO Boxing After Dark® series.
