Floyd Schofield aka "Kid Austin" back in the ring May 21
“Kid Austin” Floyd Schofield Jr. is racking up wins in 2021, fighting in Florida, Mexico and Georgia. His next stop is May 21 in Tampa, Florida on a card which will again be televised on Telemundo.
“I was scheduled to fight May 8 but my opponent fell out, so I’m looking to be 5-0 on May 21,” Kid Austin said.
“The next fight I’m going back to Atlanta in June. I fought a lot of my amateur career there, and won my fourth fight at Buckhead Fight Club April 3, so it’s kind of like a homecoming to be there.” As the wins come, so does the competition, and Floyd is ready. “Every day I train hard, and work on perfecting my skills so whoever steps in the ring against me will feel the results.”
Outside the ring, Floyd is also making efforts to give back to the community of Austin. “Saturday May first I started a Mother’s Day dinner I hope to do each year for mothers and children at the Austin Shelter for Women and Children, and plan to have something there for Christmas time. Then sometime in the fall I’m gonna do some work with the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation that was started by Matthew McConnaughey, to work with the kids in the foundation.”
