GH3 Promotions Junior Middleweight Derrick Colemon Jr. in action Saturday Night in Mexico
Fri, 30 Oct 2020
Nutley, NJ (October 29, 2020) - This Saturday night in Sinora, Mexico, junior middleweight prospect Derrick Colemon Jr. will be back in action as he takes on 46-fight veteran Lisandro de los Santons in a bout scheduled for six-rounds.
Colemon (11-1, 8 KOs) of Detroit has been chomping at the bit to get back in the ring following his only professional blemish that took place on February 14th against Joseph Jackson in a bout that was televises live on ShoBox: The New Generation on SHOWTIME.
Soon after that, the Covid-19 Pandemic struck, and Colemon has been eager to get back in the winners circle.
"It was hard at first to train because all of the gyms were closed, but I stayed in shape, I ran outside, worked out so when the gyms were open, I was already in good shape, said the 21 year-Colemon.
In the loss the Jackson, Colemon took it as a great learning experience and he knows that he is young enough to be able to shake off and become a world champion.
"I learned that I beat myself that night. I over-trained, but I have no excuses. There have been a lot of world champions that suffered losses early in their career I was 20 years-old, now 21, and I was fighting an opponent who was 15-0. There are not many fighters my age willing to take that step up. I believe in my ability, and I know big things are in store for me.
"I am ready to redeem myself, and the fans did not get to see the real me that night. I am back now. I think after three more fights, I will be right where I need to be, and I will be primed for a big 2021."
Colemon Jr. is promoted by GH3 Promotions, and is managed by Sheer Sports Management.
