Lightweight Prospect Thomas Mattice stops Orlando Rizo in 7

GH3

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nutley, NJ (November 17, 2017)–This past Saturday night, lightweight prospect Thomas Mattice remained undefeated by stopping grizzled veteran Orlando Rizo in round seven of their scheduled eight-round bout at the Atrium Arena in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

 

thomas mattice

Mattice is promoted by GH3 Promotions.

 

Mattice of Cleveland, Ohio improved his mark to 10-0 with eight knockouts.

 

The 27 year-old Mattice took out a veteran who has been in the ring with several world champions and contenders.

 

“I feel good.  He was a tough veteran, but I caught him with some good shots, and as veterans do, he kept on coming, but I kept on landing and eventually got him out of their,”said Mattice.

 

Mattice is developing into a young veteran, as he went in there with a good idea of what he wanted to do.

 

“I learned a lot in that fight.  I took my time, and worked off the jab.  I picked my shots and was not in a rush.  I started to work the body and eventually broke him.”

 

Even though there is only six weeks left in the year, Mattice would not mind getting in another fight before the calendar changes to 2018.

 

“I may try to sneak one more in before the end of the year.  If not, I will be back in there in January or early February.  2018 is going to be a big year for.  I can see myself being ranked across the board by this time next year as I want to go from a prospect to a contender.  This was a great fight for me, but expect to see me in bigger fights in 2018.”

 

His promoter Vito Mielncki of GH3 Promotions is on the same page as the three-year veteran, Mattice.

 

“That was a quality win over Rizo.  Rizo is a guy who is a veteran who has faced everybody.  That is 4 straight knockouts for Thomas and now he is coming into his power.  He is really developing and I can see some great things for him as we look towards 2018.”

For Immediate Release

Medellin, Colombia (October 31, 2017)–Victory Sports & Entertainment’s highly touted Junior Welterweight, Sonny “Pretty Boy” Fredrickson (17-0 11 Kos) will return to the ring tomorrow at the WBA Convention’s boxing card taking place in Medellin, Colombia.

The WBA is hosting its 96th Annual Convention in Medellin, Colombia from October 30 through November 2nd. As it does at every convention, the WBA will be helping to stage a boxing card for all of the boxing luminaries in attendance. As the 9th ranked fighter in the WBA’s Junior Welterweight rankings, the WBA chose Sonny for one of the highly coveted slots. “I am very proud to fight at the WBA’s 96th Convention and feel honored that President Gilberto Mendoza personally chose me to fight on this show,” states Fredrickson. “I hope to one day fight for the WBA World Championship and look forward to putting on a good show in front of all the convention attendees,” Fredrickson continued.

Fredrickson will face undefeated Colombian native Placido Ramirez (10-0, 7 KOs). “I know Ramirez is tough and that he will be looking to represent his country at this fight, but I’ve trained hard. I had a great camp and I am ready for a great fight,” says Fredrickson.

Rick Torres, President of Victory Sports, feels that this fight can provide a springboard to bigger and better things for Fredrickson. “The Junior Welterweight Division is an exciting weight class, and with Terrance Crawford moving up to Welterweight, there are going to be a lot of opportunities for young fighters like Sonny at 140.” We expect Sonny to keep moving up the rankings and hope that he will be in a position to challenge for a world title in 2018. We are very grateful to Gilberto and the WBA for providing this opportunity for Sonny and are certain he will not disappoint” states Torres.

Mike Leanardi, COO of Victory sports, adds “I want to thank Gilberto Mendoza Jr. and the WBA for affording us the opportunity to fight at this year’s convention in Medellin.” He continues, “I have the utmost confidence in Sonny and look forward to him putting on a great performance Wednesday night.”

With the recent addition of former world champion Jose Pedraza, Victory Sports continues to grow its roster and profile in the sport. Having Sonny Fredrickson on the WBA Convention card only helps to solidify their position as an emerging managerial force in boxing.

Founded by noted sports attorney Rick Torres and boxing trainer Mike Leanardi, Victory Sports & Entertainment is an athlete management company with offices in New York and Las Vegas.
