On Don King's Show titled Viva Don King II this Saturday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, two young prospects with high aspirations and expectations—Trevor Bryan and Amir Iman—will be showcasing their boxing skills.
Both young fighters are being promoted by Don King and trained by Stacy Mckinley. At today's press conference held at Paradise Live on the grounds of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fl, Mckinley expressed to King in a jovial manner his desire to bring in "new young studs, thoroughbreds, not any more old mules to the (King) boxing stable".
Here and now is what they have two young fighters eager and ready to explode onto the fight scene.
Undefeated heavyweight prospect Trevor"The American Dream" Bryan 3-0 (2KO's) from Albany, N.Y. will be taking on local Miami prospect Hector Hodge 1-0. in a 4 rounder.
22-year-old Bryan, a former Olympic alternate and state of New York 2010 Golden Gloves Champion, is looking to kick his pro-boxing career into high gear. He is excited in having Mckinley which has trained some of the best big man in the game Mike Tyson, Tony Tucker, Ray Mercer, Samuel Peter, and Ray Austin to name a few as his Head Trainer. He feels that Don King is the "best promoter out there"and can make things happen.
He tells me that he is "ready to go and that he trains for the knockout and even though it is a 4 round fight he is in condition to go 8 rounds, and that he will bring nothing but action on Saturday night".
Amir Iman 4-0 (3 KO's) undefeated Junior welterweight also from Albany, N.Y. will be taking on Kelvin Williams 1-1 (1 KO) from Gulfport, Miss.
At the press conference his trainer Stacy Mckinley spoke with high praise of Iman. Saying that a boxer like him is "rare and doesn't come around often" . Iman 21 years old is displaying and picking up technical boxing skills rapidly that other good boxers never pick up throughout there careers.
Mckinley compared Iman to turn of the century lightweight boxing legend Joe Gans known as "The Old Master" of the fight game.
Come Saturday night I myself along with other boxing fans look forward in seeing the new young guns in action. The future of boxing is here now.
