On January 30, 18-year-old Floyd Schofield Jr. will make his 2nd professional appearance after a successful debut in October of last year in Kissimmee, Florida.

 

For his debut kickoff of 2021, he’ll face Cesar Velencia Aguilar at the Big Punch Arena in Tijuana, Mexico. This will be the 2nd fight of Schofield’s pro career after an amateur career that saw him step into the ring over 140 times. Schofield’ s 2021 debut will be the first of 3 fights lined up so far for the new year.

 

Despite the current health pandemic, that has limited live boxing in many regions, Schofield’s 3 bouts that he has lined up will see him make his debut in Mexico at the end of this month, he is looking to fight on the Adrien Broner undercard on February 13th in Las Vegas and then return to the ring May 5th on the Telemundo Network in Kissimmee, Florida.

 

Schofield, born in New Jersey, and now living and training in Austin, Texas, is looking forward to making his 2021 debut and showing the boxing world what he can do in the pro game as he continues to develop.

 

Fresh off of some recent work with star Shakur Stevenson, Schofield caught up with MaxBoxing to discuss his upcoming fight.

 

“I’m excited, I’m looking forward to fighting”, said Schofield who is trained by his father (Floyd Sr.) who has been with him for his entire boxing career.

 

While Schofield fought at a few different weights during his amateur career, he is punching for pay at 130-pounds right now and says he, “feels amazing at that weight”.

 

With his weight set, asked to describe his style, Schofield said that he could best be described as, “a real original. I wouldn’t say I have copied anyone, and I have a style all my own”, he said. “I can box and I can punch”.

 

Schofield, who also does modelling work and can be seen in a current Ford Trucks commercial, isn’t signed with a particular promoter right now and that is just fine with him. “I’m an independent right now and that is OK”, he said. “I don’t mind people having some time to take a look at me and let me show them what I can do”, he said. “I want to be as busy as possible; I’d fight every month this year if I could”.

 

With some of boxing’s best like Adrien Broner and Shakur Stevenson heaping praise on Schofield it is clear that is a young man to keep an eye on.

 

“It doesn’t matter who I am fighting, I don’t sleep on anybody”, he said. “I’m just excited to get in the ring and showcase my skills. I go for the KO if it presents itself, but I don’t look for it, if it comes, it comes. I’m just looking forward to going in there and showing people what I can do”.
