Michael Hunter Calls Out All Heavyweight Champions and Contenders

PhilBoxing.com




LAS VEGAS, NV (March 21, 2019) - Heavyweight contender Michael Hunter (16-1, 11 KOs), is calling out all top ten contenders in the heavyweight division. Hunter is riding an impressive four-fight winning streak where he captured two recognizable titles, both of which came under the tutelage of former two-time heavyweight world champion, Hasim Rahman, who took over as head trainer in October of 2018.

On October 13, 2018, Michael Hunter traveled overseas to London, UK, and scored a 10th round TKO over previously unbeaten foe, Martin Ilunga (11-1, 8 KOs), capturing the IBO Inter-Continental Heavyweight title. Incredibly, the following month, Hunter again traveled outside of the United States to Monte Carlo, Monaco, and scored another unbelievable TKO against Alexander Ustinov (34-3, 25 KOs), this time winning the vacant World Boxing Association International Heavyweight title in the process.

"I've been telling everyone I'm on a mission to become the heavyweight championship of the world, and that I would go overseas and bring back knockout victories," said a confident Michael Hunter. "I had no choice, I knew I needed knockouts, or else I wouldn't get a decision in their native land. In both fights with Ilunga and Ustinov, I dug deep and got them both out of there. I believe in myself and I know I can beat any contender, or any of the heavyweight champions out there. With Rahman in my corner, no one is going to stop me."

Rahman believes Hunter, who does all his training at the Prince Ranch Boxing gym in Las Vegas, has all the talent to dethrone the current heavyweight champions, including Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, and Tyson Fury.

"Michael hunter is the best heavyweight in the world," proclaims former two-time heavyweight world champion, Hasim Rahman. "Hunter beat every American heavyweight in USA Boxing from 2008 -2012. Michael has the heart, the speed, the DNA, and underestimated punching power to capture the heavyweight championship of the world. In addition, Mike has been in the ring with the likes of Tyson Furry, sparred with Deontay Wilder, Luis Ortiz, the Klitschko Brothers, and more than held his own with them all. There's no reason why Hunter shouldn't be considered a serious candidate for a title shot. We're willing to fight Joe Joyce, Dillan Whyte, Trevor Bryan, Joseph Parker, or any other heavyweight contender to earn a shot to all the heavyweight champs. I believe Hunter beats all current heavyweight champs right now."

"I know my name is hunter, but I'm not a typical hunter with a gun." Hunter concluded. "I promise I won't shoot to kill, I'll just knock you out, and you will live to fight another day. It's hunting season!"

"Mike hunter is the future of the heavyweight division," said Rahman. "Any of the names I mentioned, feel free to go goodnight. Mike Hunter will defeat you and put the world on notice."
