As a few of my UGM brothers I’ve became close with already are aware including @MBTJR1980 and his team @UNITED as well as my team @Iron_Junkie_Labs are aware I locked in a fight at Lightweight (135). My team and I tried to get another fight at Super Lightweight/Light Welterweight but the guy simply didn’t want the smoke to put it kindly. Turns out I get a fight that me and my opponent have both been wanting and waiting for, for quite some time. The guy is a great fighter who I’ve sparred with several times so we kno each other’s styles pretty well. He’s more of a classic boxer type who likes to use his jab alot and has very good timing and does a great job at moving around the ring (running). Unfortunately for him I kno how to cut off the ring and I come forward so he can only use his running tatics so much. But it will be a great fight and I’m looking forward to closing the show figuratively and literally on my Lightweight division career!
Not only that we will be the main event and will be headlining the venue, also a much more financially lucrative fight for me than the one at 140. I reported to camp last Tuesday weighing 143lbs officially and have roughly 3 1/2 weeks to get down to 135 which I’ve already dropped 4 down to 139. Those last 4-5lbs I can drop over night come fight week. As I’ve explained to “IJL” and a few others this fight is going to be paying me well enough that I’m going to be able to take a lay off from the ring and fighting for at least 3 months to strictly concentrate on getting my weight up to at least 150-155, work on strength training and to develop more power and how to maintain my speed and footwork with the added weight, not just that but the guys at 147 and up hit alot harder and can take a lot more punishment than the guys at 135-140. Might not sound like much until you are in the ring with these guys and trust me it’s a tremendous difference. So will be working with bigger sparring partners to develop my ability to take the bigger shots from the bigger fighters. So it’s not at all going to be break from boxing, merly a lay-off from fighting in the ring to come back a bigger, better and more dominate fighter. The Welterweight division has officially been put on notice.
On a side note…I’ve been off cycle a little over 2 weeks now. So once this fight is over on 7-28, I will begin my bulking cycle sometime between mid August or September. Ran NPP last time with good results. This time I’m going with the tried and true, time tested… “Iron Junkie” TEST, DECA, DBOL, PROVIRON, & Some TNE thrown in. I’m possibly thinking of adding some MASTERON E to the mix. What do you guys think about adding that compound as well or should I just leave it as stated above without the Mast E.?
A special thanks to my incredible sponsor “IJL” who never fails to come through for me, have my back, and provide me with the incredible gear to compliment my hard work, dedication, and drive.
