I currently reside in Rome Georgia and have been published as a writer along with being an avid life long fan of the "Sweet Science" chiefly among other sports.
Among my favorite memories as a child include staying up late to watch ESPN and USA network boxing coverage and then watching the big premium weekend fights while visiting my grandparents.
As an adult, I watch all the fights a through z and consider myself somewhat of a modern historian.
My favorite fighters include the late Arturo Gatti, Kostya Tszyu, Evander Holyfield and Manny Pacquiao just to name a few.
I'm excited to see the sport I love back on primetime network t.v. and am optimistic about the future of boxing.
