Sergio had a tough childhood; he grew up without a father, but his mother also lived in a different apartment than him, actually upstairs in the same hotel in East Los Angeles. He went to Schurr High School in Montebello, California, from which he matriculated in 1997.
Following high school, Sergio became more focused on boxing, and was a part of several tournaments and was close to winning the 1998 national gloves, then the 1999 U.S. national championships, and was about to become a part of the 2000 U.S. Olympic team, but lost the bout that would gave him a spot on the team. During his amateur career, Sergio had a total of 40 wins and 10 losses.
His professional debut came on the 17th August 2000, when he fought Antonio Maldonado at the Arrowhead Pond, Anaheim, California, which Sergio won by split decision. He continued in the same rhythm, defeating such boxers as Eric Benito Tzand, Charles Blake, Sean Holley, and George Moreno to acquire a 5-0 record. His name started becoming more popular in the ring, he was chosen for the new NBC TV series “The Contender” in 2004, which follows a group of boxers as they compete with one another in an elimination-style competition, but also follows the boxers through their daily routines. Sergio won the series winning $1 million, which only increased his net worth. He also accomplished a perfect record of 16 wins and zero lost fights. He fought Peter Manfredo Jr. once more, and again showed Peter that he was currently a better boxer. Then in 2006, as Sergio’s ambitions increased, he fought Eric Reagan and won by split decision. Moving forward there were talks that Sergio would face Jermain Taylor in 2007 for the WBC/WBO title, but the fight never happened. Instead, in 2007 Sergio only fought against Elvin Ayala and recorded his first draw, however, his WBC Light Middleweight came in June 2008, when he defeated Vernon Forrest by majority decision. Unfortunately, his reign didn’t last long, as he lost his title three months later, when Forrest and Sergio fought again, and this time, Forrest won by unanimous decision.
After losing the title, Sergio changed category, moving to middleweight, and fought Calvin Green in 2010, winning by technical knockout in the seventh round. His next fight was against Shane Mosley, ending with an infamous draw, since boxing website Boxrec had Shane as the winner with 114-112, while the official judges ruled the draw with 115-113 for Mora, 116-112 Mosley, and 114-114.
Sergio then moved to super middleweight and faced Brian Vera, who inflicted Sergio his second loss in professional career. Sergio then defeated Jose Alfredo Flores, but faced Vera again, and lost again, the fight being for the vacant WBO NABO middleweight title.
Following the two unsuccessful bouts with Vera, Sergio returned to middleweight and in no time was back on track, defeating Abraham Han for the USBA middleweight title, which increased his wealth to a large degree. However, his form didn’t last long, as he lost two consecutive fights to Daniel Jacobs, both for the WBA Middleweight title.
Since the start of his career, Sergio has recorded 28 wins, five losses, and two draws.
Regarding his personal life, Sergio tends to keep his life on a low profile, hence, there is no real information about his life outside the ring.
