Carson, California (August 23, 2013) – After the disappointing cancellation of Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale’s (5-0, 5 KO’s) bout last month, the 2012 U.S. Super Heavyweight Olympian will now be making his return to the ring tomorrow evening and will be showcased live on Showtime Extreme.
Breazeale will be facing his toughest opponent to date in experienced former heavyweight prospect Lenroy Thomas (16-2, 8 KO’s) at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, California. Breazeale has been waiting for this opportunity to prove that he is a legitimate heavyweight prospect and is ready to get in the ring and show he is a force to be reckoned with.
When asked about his upcoming bout Breazeale stated, “I’m definitely ready for this bout. I have been waiting to get in the ring to showcase what I’ve learned in the last eight weeks. It’s been a couple of months since I’ve been in the ring so I’m very excited for Saturday night”.

Breazeale has been on the fast track to the top of the heavyweight division fighting five times since November 2012. The heavy hitting Breazeale has been very impressive ending all of his bouts by way of knockout in two rounds or less.
In preparation for this bout, the heavyweight prospect has stayed in exceptional shape and has been in the gym sparring up to 12 rounds. This is the first time he will be facing a southpaw and has learned a great deal working with his three sparring partners in camp.
When his trainer John Bray was asked about his thoughts on Breazeale’s progress, the veteran trainer stated the following, “Dominic is a work in progress and he is progressing at an absolutely amazing rate. The best thing about him is that he is very teachable and he is learning on a daily basis.”
“What is great about him, is that Dominic surprises me and impresses me every time he spars. He picks up techniques very quickly and implements those same techniques when he is sparring. I’m glad that we had a phenomenal camp at the Glendale Fight Club.”
Breazeale was also very pleased with his camp and looks at this fight as an opportunity to be recognized as a threat to the heavyweight division. “To step up in competition is great, but being able to do it on a nationally televised stage is even better. I can’t wait to show what I’ve got in front of my hometown and the boxing fans watching this bout nationwide and worldwide. I want to let the heavyweight division know that Trouble is coming”.
