I have finished a long training period after being away from the ring for a few months. I feel refreshed and ready to be back in the ring again. After many tribulations we have finally found someone to be my opponent on August 3rd. Dominick Alexander Guinn, with whom I have sparred with many times before, will be stepping into the ring with me.
Before my fight with Arreola I trained for a few weeks with Ronni Shields. Dominick Guinn was one of my sparring partners. Tall, built well and a strong boxer. His defense is very strong. It is hard to hit him with a clean, strong hit because he knows how to protect himself. He has never lost by a K.O. in his whole career.
On last Thursday (June 27,2013) my promoters organized the first press conference before the August 3rd fight with Tony Grano. The conference took place in the well known Polish club, Wisla in Garfield. My opponent Tony Grano did not interrupt his training and therefore did not show up to the conference. I think that the meeting with the reporters was very fruitful, even after my long break.
The contract has been signed- Tony Grano will be my opponent at the boxing gala August 3rd, 2013 at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT.
I promised a longer break from boxing and I kept my word. I did not say though that I will not be continuing my blog. Fans are waiting for news from and I have been silent. It’s time for a few words of explanation. After the fight with Cunningham I was going to have a longer break in order to get away from the fast world of boxing. The break was to heal my body after getting beat up for so long. I accomplished that goal and I have been training again with Roger Bloodworth for a month now. Tomorrow we are beginning strength training. The media has been introducing many of my new opponents. Alsmore fight dates have been discussed.
