Georgia prospect Brown ready to rock and roll
It’s wintertime in Georgia, so it’s slightly cooler, but things will be heating up in Atlanta on January 31 when ACNY Promotions presents “Super Brawl” at the Revel Nightclub in Atlanta.
Headlining the event will be red-hot Atlanta, Georgia prospect Deonte Brown (4-0, 3 KO’s). Brown turned pro in the summer of 2017 and after picking up a decision in his debut has rang off 3 straight knockouts.
After only getting in 2 bouts in his each of his debut and sophomore years as a pro, this will Brown’s 3rd fight in 4 months and that is a pace he likes; staying active and fighting often.
Brown, who grew up admiring Marvelous Marvin Hagler and counts current welterweight star Terence “Bud” Crawford as one of his favorites, has both the ability to play it slick or bang in the ring.
The friendly, well-spoken Brown, a native of Morgan City, Louisiana caught up with Maxboxing to share his thoughts on his upcoming bout and where he sees himself heading in 2019.
“I feel good”, he said. “We’ll fight this bout at 130 pounds, super featherweight, but really I’d like to be 126-pounds. I feel good when I get down to 126 and then re-hydrate”, said Brown.
While Brown wasn’t as busy as he would have liked after turning pro, getting in 2 bouts in the first year, this will be his 3rd fight in 4 months, something he and his team plan to build on.
“Well, after I turned pro a lot of fights would be lined up and then fall through, for whatever reason”, he said. “It was frustrating but that just happens in boxing. But, we are working on some things right now to keep busy and keep fighting back to back”, he continued. “I’d like to stay real busy this year and get to 15-0 by the end of the year, get in 10 or 12 fights for sure this year”.
When asked to describe his style, Brown sees himself as a fighter who can deliver it both fast and furious once he gets in the ring.
“I see myself as an all around fighter”, he said. “I feel I can do it all, both box and bang at the same time”, he said. “I’ve got vey good speed; I’m a fast fighter, and I’m ferocious in the ring”.
