Now Van Sickle will put his undefeated record on the line as he faces another up and coming prospect, the hard hitting Luke Munsen whose 16-1 record is a force to be reckoned with.
The two will be fighting for the vacant WBC Continental Americas cruiserweight title. “It has been my dream to fight for a title,” said Van Sickle.
Van Sickle who started boxing at age 15 is realizing that his dream for a title can come true if he applies himself and really trains hard. He now with new trainer Mathis Hill is focusing on improving his defense because he knows that Munsen has a mean left hook and just being a hard hitter will not keep his record at zero unless he really works at it. When asked who he tries to imitate in the boxing world he said, “I try and be like Chad Van Sickle”, After all a win on Friday night would give him a title and he would prove that being like Chad Van Sickle is what it takes to keep his losses at zero and elevate him in his quest for boxing domination.
