    Yea I didnt see yours.
    If its really him then, he deserves enough respect for getting in the ring, but that respect only goes so far.
    I think he just posts like that and isnt trying to troll or anything.

    But if he starts to troll....
    He'll be 1-13.

    Cool. I visit Ohio semi-frequently. I have family and friends in Youngstown which is only about 40 to 45 minutes away from Akron. I usually travel to Erie to hit the main gyms, it's only a 45 minute drive as well.

    I am NOT WORRIED about my 13 match pro record. I turned pro at 32 after a 41 amateur career. Am a true welterweight al along though I fought amateur at 156. Pro I went into eight (8) m., three (3) sm, 1 lh and 1 jm (that "dq"). My record is a "good bad" RECORD OH WELL! First eight opponents I faced (I've put this into the "all experts bio") have a back-que record [that is: them at their height] combined of 94-4-2.
    Three of them (13) was TKO but it could of been only the fourth line a "TKO". (I was stopped in three of the 41 as well.......)
    To put the record out there completely Ha haha!

    A lot of the Ohio cities have a pretty rich history in the sport... Cincinnati, as well.

    As an MMA coach, there's a huge untapped market between OH and PA with the wrestling and boxing heritage. A Kings, ATT etc around here would produce some serious talent imo. There's a million Cody Garbrandts running around. Shit, I was one of them but I was before the MMA boom.

    Edit: @Kovalev's "Man Bag" to clarify I was saying to come to my boxing gym when you come to the city

    Yeah I agree with that for sure. I wrestled growing up. On my street there were like 3 state champs.

    Can you assist with getting mma fights ???

    I wrestled all the way through college. Dad made me rassle and box growing up.

    And yup, though I'm not involved in management or promoting or anything, I have connections with Brawl at the Brawlroom, IT Fight Series and Pinnacle amongst other local promotions.

    You're obviously welcome to come out on Saturday, too, but I'll be pretty tied up. Got 3 sets of hands to wrap plus warm-ups and cornering. I'll be the bald (by choice) guy that looks like a bigger Frankie Edgar. @RR can confirm that last part lmao.

    Pm me if you ever need anything.

    Thanks man! Will be PMing you. Yeah i got forced into wrestling too. My younger brother was real good. But it was kind of his deal and something he took pride in. I didnt want to cramp his style or steal his thunder. I liked basketball better. All our friends would tell the coaches how much better I was than my brother. So in gym class one day I easily beat the senior who was the captain of the wrestling team. When the gym teacher told the wrestling coaches they called home and my mom made me join the team. I had been cut from the basketball team like most of the better players were for some reason that year because the coach wanted to teach people a lesson and how to play "team ball." Lol. She didnt want me at the house by myself and thought it would look good on my college applications the more stuff I had on there.

    I wouldnt mind just observing or watching fights Saturday. Im low maintenance.
    Is it MMA or boxing?
