'Sugar' Shane Mosley and Naazim Richardson Help Jamaal 'Da Truth' Davis Prepare For 6th March Showdown

Popular Philadelphia Middleweight Jamaal 'Da Truth' Davis, better known around the boxing scene as 'Tyson', spends his final day at 'Sugar' Shane Mosley's Big Bear, California; training camp where he has been preparing for his first fight, at the Legendary Blue Horizon on Friday 6th March 2009, since being signed by promoter Russell Peltz.

'Tyson' was signed by Peltz Boxing following his magnificent win, over fellow Philly fighter Chris Hall 3(2KOs)-5-1, at the National Guard Armory, Philadelphia on Saturday 4th October '08, and the spontaneous, emotionally charged, thirty minute plus post victory reception he received from the huge crowd, which included many of Philadelphia's biggest boxing names including Cruiserweight King, Steve 'USS' Cunningham, NABA Light Heavyweight Champ, Yusaf Mack, Former Jnr. Middleweight World Champions Robert 'Bam Bam' Hines and Kassim 'The Dream' Ouma, former Heavyweight Champion of the World, 'Terrible' Tim Witherspoon and Hall of Famer Jeff

Jamaal, who is being prepared for this fight by his long time trainer Shar'ron Baker and esteemed coach Brother Naazim Richardson as well as sparring with Brother Naazim's Concrete Jungle Boxing Tribe members, spoke briefly prior to starting his final day at camp. "I'm ready to fight. I couldn't be better prepared, the facilities and people here are first class. I've been to camp before, but that was to help others. It's awesome to think that Shar'ron, Naz and all these great fighters are taking the time to help me get ready. You know, Naz's last two fighters were Bernard (Hopkins) and Shane (Mosley), and he's helping me. Awesome. I'm hundred percent ready for anyone.

I can't thank Shane, Naazim, Shar'ron, Rock, Dynamite, Khalib and Smash enough. These guys are the best. This place is awesome.

I'm so blessed to have them, as well as the support of Rob (Epstein) and Diane (Bennett) of DiamondBoxing, who are sponsoring me and the American Cancer Society again. These are really great people that really believe in me and the campaign. I can't thank them enough, they gave me a hundred percent and I'm going to give a hundred percent in the fight for them, Patrilla (his young wife who passed away in December 2007) and the American Cancer Society."

Jamaal's ever present coach, Shar'ron Baker added. "Tyson has gotten in alot of good sparring with Rock Allen, Karl 'Dynamite' Dargan, Khalib 'Big Foot' Whitmore and Carl 'Smash' Scarborough. He's looking fit and ready for any test set before him. Even though we have about a few days to go before we return to Philly' Tyson is ready to go now!!! We'd like to give a shout out to 'Sugar' Shane Mosley thanking him for allowing us to use his training facilities and an even bigger shout out to Brother Naazim Richardson for making it all possible."

The ever popular Jamaal 8(6KOs)-4, will be entering the ring, when he faces Wilmington, Delaware's Clarence 'Sonny Bono' Taylor 13 (6KOs)-20-3 at the Legendary Blue Horizon in his home town of Philadelphia at the Russell Peltz/Joe Hand promoted March 6th event, wearing the distinctive pink Diamond Boxing/American Cancer Society T-Shirt as he did for his previous fight.
