NUTLEY, NJ (DECEMBER 13, 2013)--THIS SATURDAY, two members of the GH3 Promotions stable will be in action at the Mustang Crossfit Fitness Center @ Oakridge in Oakridge, North Carolina.
Undefeated Super Middleweight Jerry “The King’s Son” Odom will take on Marcus Brooks (7-17, 3 KO’s)in a six round Super Middleweight bout while undefeated Heavyweight Dorsett “The Bullet” Barnwell battles Earl Ladson (15-21-1, 7 KO’s) in a six round bout.
Odom, 6-0 with 6 knockouts of Bowie, Maryland is getting right back in the ring after his 1st round destruction over Eric Moon just ten day previous in New York City.
“The is the first time I have fought back to back,” said Odom. “But I went right back in the gym after my last fight. I like being this active”
Although Brooks is by far the most experienced pro that Odom has faced to date, Odom does not know much or is bothered by that.
“All i know is that he is susceptible to uppercuts and i plan to expose that.”
Being that this will be the last fight of 2013 for Brooks, he sees a big leap by this time next year.
“By this time next year, i expect to be fighting on television on a bigger scale.”
Barnwell (10-0, 5 KO’s) of Norfolk, VA. will be making his third start of 2013 and is coming off a 3rd round stoppage over Marlon Hayes on August 23rd.
“Everything has been good, “ said Barnwell. “I been putting in the work. I been in the gym twice a day. I been doing strength and conditioning and everything is doing good.”
Barnwell knows that the next year is a pivotal moving year and he knows that by this time next year, he could be on the verge of big things.
“I hope to be about 17-0 by this time next year and hopefully have at least one regional belt. Being in that position will have me on television and then everyone can see what I see in my abilities. 2014 will be my year and I will do whatever I have to do to get my name out there.”
Odom is scheduled to fight January 17th in Memphis, Tennessee on a SHO BOX undercard
Barrnwell will be back in action on January 31st in West Orange, NJ on an ESPN’s Friday Night Fights undercard.
The events on January 17th and January 31st are co-promoted by GH3 Promotions, Greg Cohen Promotions and DiBella Entertainment.
