“If Tarver is looking to fight somebody who’s motivated with true skills then I’m here ready to put his old a** in a rocking chair!”
Exclusive Interview by Charles C. White – What’s up Malik? Been a while since our last interview, how have you been man?
MS: Everything has been great baby, just constantly striving to put myself back in position to fight for a world title.
Congrats on your latest win over Alex Leapai. How does it feel to get back in the mix bro?
MS: Thanks man, It was a good win against Leapai even though I was slightly disappointed that I didn’t get the stoppage like I promised but I broke my right hand in the 4th round so I just used my God-given skills to finish getting the job done but like I always say I find it rather sexy to go to another man’s country or home town and annihilate him in front of his own people.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (March 25th, 2014) — Having already marked his territory in Rhode Island by beating hometown favorite Thomas Falowo in July, Jersey City middleweight Chris Chatman has taken his newfound allegiance to New England one step further by signing with Classic Entertainment & Sports, the region’s premier combat sports firm.
Good, thanks. Let’s start at the beginning. How did you get involved in boxing?
I started in the streets at the age of 15, fighting in the streets. This guy suggested that I start boxing at the local gym. With that being said, I started and I didn’t like it. I stopped after 5 or 6 months. I started back when my brother was killed in the streets of New Orleans. I told my mom that I’d rather pick up some gloves than pick up a gun. That was in 2002.
Hey Malik, it’s been awhile. How are you doing bro?
I’m good bro, blessed and always be entertained by life.
In your last bout, you lost to Dereck Chisora by what many consider to be a controversial knockout. Talk about the impact that this loss has had on both your career and general psyche…
Well to start things off controversy or no controversy it was a good fight and Chisora officially won fair and square, whatever senseless acts that these referees or judges may do in these fights are not the fighters call, so it is what it is and that milk is spilled so no need to cry over it. As far as my psyche is concerned its better than it has ever been, I still believe I’m the best skilled heavyweight on the planet, I still look good, I have two beautiful, healthy kids that I’m crazy about and I can’t wait to get back in the ring to finish my mission to a heavyweight championship.
