Super talented lightweight, Maynard Allison opened his camp at Inner City Boxing Gym to the public, and he showed off his amazing physical skills, and discussed his upcoming fight with Braulio Hernandez (Soto) at the Dorton Arena in Raleigh, NC on February 27.
The fight is promoted by Stop Running Promotions. Doors open at 7pm, and will feature 8 exciting bouts.
Allison worked out in front of a large crowd alongside Team Allison trainer Keedar Massey and manager Anthony Brown. Allison is coming off a first round KO win on Jan 30. He is looking to impress fans even more, as he works his way to serious contender status in the lightweight division, and he continues the course he has set for an extremely productive and a very busy 2016.
Here is what Maynard Allison and Manager Anthony Brown had to say:
“This is about reaching my goal and becoming a champion. To me, this is just another fight.”
“He can make it as personal as he wants. I have a job to do! If he gets too personal, my skill level, Coach Massey’s expertise, and my experience will allow us to take a big advantage of him.”
“Dorton Arena is a big place, and there should be a lot of fans there to see some exciting boxing. I will give them everything they want and then some. I can’t wait. I am very excited to show off my skills.”
“They are giving Braulio a lot of attention. They are over there pumping him up real good. They are treating Maynard Allison as just an opponent, and that is a huge mistake. Maynard is the truth, and they will find out quick.”
Some things have been made up about Maynard said this and Maynard said that, but Maynard is well grounded and would never say those things. They are making this really personal, and have crossed some racial lines. We are taking it in stride, because Maynard’s poise, discipline, and talent will have the final say. Hell, we just hope fans will love his talents and become new Maynard Allison fans. We welcome everybody!”
