Mickey Bey sets the record on his team and future plans

PhilBoxing.com


On Tuesday a press release was published that stated former lightweight champion Mickey Bey had signed with a new promoter and is looking to jump start his career after being very inactive the past few years.

Bey, who had a decorated amateur career, signed with Greg Cohen Promotions to go along with his managerial and advisory team.


In this Q&A session Bey sets the record straight on his team and his plans as he works his way back to a world title shot.

Question: A Press release recently circulated that stated that you signed a promotional agreement with Greg Cohen Promotions and recently signed an advisory deal with Andre Rozier's Havoc Management and Advisory Inc. What can you tell us about your team?

Bey: Yes, itís a great team with all good energy with people who want to see me win. I got a great team which includes Oscar Vazquez and Greg Hannley. I appreciate what they guys do. They collectively made sure I was going to finish my career with a bang and achieve more success and get back to the top.

Question: Will Rozier be training you or who are you going to be working with as far as your training team?

Bey: He will be a part of my camp and also I have been working with Stephen "Breadman" Edwards and Mark "Too Sharp" while I've been out of the ring. I have been learning more and staying sharp. Mark ed"Too Sharp" Johnson was just out here in Vegas training me and helped sharpen me up.

Question: Are you still working with Greg Hannley, and Prince Ranch Boxing?

Bey: Greg plays a huge role in my career and he cares about my well being so all the guys I mentioned are my backbone and will get me where I need to be.

Question: You have only fought twice in the past four years. At 36 years old are you looking to become very active in the near future to get yourself back in title position?

Bey: Yes absolutely and Iíll come back better than I was before. Iím preserved and I live clean all year around. I live like a fighter although I havenít been fighting. Iíll return very freakish like a 25 year old. Besides, all the best athletes in the world in every sport are over 30 nowadays but Iím blessed. I feel youthful and Iím a lot smarter.

Question: You know what it is like to be a champion, having beaten Miguel Vazquez. How badly do you want to a champion now versus when you first became one?

Bey: Yes, but to be honest I fought with tendons out of place and bone spurs in my hand and got surgery after that fight and the fight sucked and I didnít get to really enjoy it. Long story short, weird things start happening to me behind the scenes that I'll later discuss on video in entirety. But I want some real fights and tough opponents. Thatís what I enjoy.

Question: It is no secret that you weren't on the best of terms at Mayweather Promotions and that is part of why you were out of the ring for so long. In hindsight do you wish you had done things differently or is there anything you wish you could change?

Bey: No. Honestly, I can say this, I made a couple small business decisions that werenít the best before coming to them. I would change my thinking from now on but with them I straight took a backseat and never negotiated and never asked questions or anything and it came back to bite me very hard! It did start out great. I was forgiving when I asked for a release last year and I got it but I never in a million years thought certain people over there would sabotage big things I had on the table. It was devastating the things happening to me behind the scenes. Iím just glad Iím a strong and positive person. I held on to my dream and didnít give up.

Question: You won your title at 135 but recently said that you may move down in weight which would be unusual because as fighters get older they usually move up in weight. Which weight class do you feel is the best for you at this particular time?

Bey: Most fighters shed 15-30 pounds or more I donít but it really doesnít matter to me. Most of my career I fought between 130-135 but an opportunity came up to fight Vazquez because nobody wanted to fight him at the time so I accepted and won and stayed there. My team sees my weight and asked since Iím not heavy would I take opportunities at either weight. I said of course I will. Iíll fight anybody in either weight class. I just want good fights. I donít worry about weight. Iím ready for combat.

Question: When do you plan on fighting next?

Bey: I should have a announcement pretty soon

Question: Anything else you would like to discuss?

Bey: Once again I just want to thank God, Greg Hannley , Havoc Boxing, Oscar Vazquez and Greg Cohen for having my back and working relentlessly to get me back in the ring

Question: Anything you would like to say to the fans?

Bey: Please tune in when I fight. Iíll give it all I have and God bless.
