Pinellas Park, FL - The former IBF/IBO Super Middleweight
Champion Jeff Left Hook Lacy (24-2, 17 KO ) opens training camp
today at the Ultimate Fighters gym in Pinellas Park, Florida.
There is a fill in the air at camp with positive motivation,
Lacy with a very positive mind set seemly very exited to jump
back into the ring on April 10th against light heavyweight Otis
Triple G Griffin (19-4, 7 KO ).
In a very thought out process Lacy giving strong consideration
with promoting really looks to do bigger things in boxing with
Left Hook Promotions at this stage of his career getting back
into the mix, Lacy very exited to say the least about fighting
in front of his home crowd in Tampa St. Pete. Not at all feeling
the pressure, Lacy training hard showing very fast hand speed,
looking to go back to the basics and box. He looks not to hold
Lacy has physically and mentally prepared himself for this
fight, This time around there is no question Lacy will be able
to get back. His shoulder injury is not a factor in any way. He
looks to be very strong and have no fading in this fight. There
will be no holding back, he looks to punch the crap out of
Griffin in this fight at 173 lbs.
Lacy states that he is clearly ready for everything that Otis
Griffin will bring. He describes this as a Super Bowl for
Griffin. He thinks that he is going to come over here and spoil
everything. That is just not going to happen. "I know that I can
move my hands be in great condition using my power and speed to
make a fight."
Trainer Roger Bloodworth, a long time friend back with Lacy,
pretty much likes what Jeff has been doing. "He is just fun to
work with, a great warrior. He will do very well in this fight.
Lacy is not angry at boxing. Times have past by and he has
learned a lot. Jeff is very confident will look good technically
and fight hard on April 10th."
Co-Promoter of the event Terry Trakes from One Punch Productions
states that this evaluation process from Lacy getting into
promoting shows that it is no cake walk. "He is now seeing the
other side. He can see what a promoter goes through from a
different prospective then a fighter."
Homecoming is presented in association with One Punch
Productions and Everlast will feature Lacy in the main event of
the evening, and a exiting 10 bout card for the night. Tickets
are available at ticketmaster and the Sun Dome box office.
