“The Skinny”: Opening his professional career in dominant fashion, Fighting Arts Academy's Eddy George has needed shy of three minutes total cage time to dispatch Raymond Yanez and Frank Mazepa at CES 60 and CES 61 respectfully. George looks to continue stringing wins and dramatic finishes together as he welcomes the professional and promotional debut of North Carolina's Tony Jackson tomorrow night at CES 63.
Fighting out of: Greensboro, North Carolina
Affiliation: Team Rock Bottom
Record: Debut (3-1 as an Amateur)
Last fight: First round TKO (Referee Stoppage) of Dallas Clark at Elite Warrior Challenge 5. (01/31/15)
“The Skinny”: Four fight veteran of Elite Warrior Challenge and Revolution Fight Series, with all three of his Amateur wins coming by way of first round Knockout, North Carolina’s Tony Jackson ends a six year layoff when he punches his professional ticket Friday night, against 2-0 CES Lightweight prospect Eddy George on a week's notice! Welcome to the show...
Breakdown: I have gotta admit I was a little shocked to see Eddy George show up “Mulletless” at the weight-ins today, and quite frankly that almost made me change my tune on my prediction for this one. But then I remind myself that Eddy was kicking ass before the Mullet came along and he will likely continue to do so Friday night when the door slams shut on his third professional bout against Pro-Debuter; Tony Jackson. Jackson comes in on just a handful of days notice with a pedigree in boxing that could make this one fun to watch, while it lasts...George looks to notch his third win to open his professional campaign at CES 63 by shutting out the lights on Tony Jackson, under the bright lights at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Massachusetts tomorrow night!
