Montgomery Brothers, Maliek, Mikhail & Michael Jr. 

Return to the Ring This Sat in Their Hometown


 

MACON, GA (October 19, 2017) – Boxing returns to Macon, Georgia this Saturday, October 21st at the Shrine Temple as the Montgomery Brothers, Maliek, Mikhail, and Michael Jr, all guided by Witness Sports Management’s Greg Hannely and Jared Shaw, look to prove why they’re the future of boxing atop a stacked card in the heart of the south.

 

All three brothers who were born and raised in Macon, GA, are featured in four-round bouts as Maliek Montgomery (1-0, 1KO) will face veteran Calvin Smith (2-11), Mikhail Montgomery (1-0 1KO), who will be making his pro debut, will face Tony Jones, as Michael Montgomery Jr. will face Edwin Aceves (Pro debut).  As amateur boxers, the three brothers had an outstanding combined record of 419-44.  All three brothers are trained by their father, Michael Montgomery Sr.

 

“It is an honor to fight in Macon, Georgia, as we didn’t have many boxing cards growing up out here, and it is a great feeling to help bring a professional boxing match to my hometown,” said Maliek Montgomery. “This is a rare opportunity for my brothers and I show our hometown fans what we got, now that we are professional boxers.”

 

 “I am proud to fight in Georgia and it is Macon, that makes it even better,” Michael Montgomery Jr.

stated. “I am excited about this fight and wish it was fight night already. All I can tell you is get ready for a great performance as I’m looking to bring some heat when I step in the ring.”

“It is a great feeling to make my professional debut in my hometown and alongside my brothers and father,” Mikhail Montgomery said.  “We’ve all worked very hard for moments like this.  With this being my pro debut, I’m looking to shine.  This is going to be a fight you don’t want to miss.”

 

“My boys are ready to show our hometown fans that they are elite fighters,” said Michael Montgomery Sr. “No fighter out of Macon, Georgia has ever won a world title and my boys have a great chance to become the first to do so.  I’m expecting a lot of family and friends to be in attendance.  My sons are super excited to be fighting in Macon and everyone watching will know they are some rough boys, with some serious boxing skills.”

 

“The Montgomery brothers are special.” said Greg Hannely. “They have a fan friendly style that I know will resonate with their hometown fans.  In boxing, you want to see fighters that like to engage, and the Montgomery brothers are a perfect example of what action fighters should look like.  These boys can bang.”

“The time has come where all three brothers will be fighting on the same card,” said co-manager Jared Shaw. “The fact that this card is taking place in Macon, Georgia, is truly amazing.  As managers, you always want to build a solid fan base in the city where the fighter is from.  In this case, we got three bonified fighters, fighting in their hometown. Real fighters, fight, and Macon is going to be proud to call the Montgomery’s their own.”

SAN CARLOS, CA (October 2, 2017) – Sports scientist, Victor Conte, reveals in detail, why he believes undefeated heavyweight contender, Luis Ortiz (27-0, 23 KOs), is innocent in regards to his recent positive drug test.  An expert in the field of scientific nutrition, Conte feels, Ortiz was negligent in declaring his blood pressure medicine, but also believes there is no evidence of intent to cheat. Conte’s position is that the WBC heavyweight championship fight between, Deontay Wilder (38-0, 37 KOs) and Luis Ortiz, scheduled for November 4th on Showtime, should move forward without delay.

 

“Unless you have strong evidence of intent to cheat, then you don’t have a case,” said a stern Victor Conte. “Let the fight go on.  Don’t deprive the fans….and the WBC, I hope your listening.”

LAS VEGAS, NV (September 25, 2017) – Last Friday at the SugarHouse Casino, in Philadelphia, PA, undefeated super-lightweight prospect, 18-year old sensation Devin “The Dream” Haney, improved to (17-0, 11 KOs) with a unanimous decision victory against Enrique Tinoco (16-5-3, 12 KOs) of Mexico.

Tinoco, known for being a rugged fighter, was no match for Haney as he dominated from start to finish.  Devin used his superior boxing skills to outclass Tinoco, working off angels, while landing his punches at will. In round four, Haney hurt Tinoco with a vicious straight right-cross, putting the Mexican native on wobbly legs, prompting a 10-8 round on one of the judges’ scorecards.  Tinoco managed to survive to the final bell, but took a beating along the way.  Final scorecards read 80-71, 80-72 twice.

“Tinoco was a very durable opponent who’s been in the ring with some notable fighters,” said Devin Haney. “I knew if I stuck to my game plan, everything would work out.  I’m only 18-years old, but I feel like a polished pro.  With every fight, I’m learning something new.  I just want to be the best possible fighter I can be.  All the hard work is paying off.

With the win, Haney, who currently holds the WBC Youth World Lightweight Title, has plans to get right back in the ring.  Devin has already fought six times this year.

“My goal is to fight three more times in 2017,” said Devin Haney. “Last year I had nine fights, and I want to stay on that pace to close out the year.  The team I have behind me is amazing.  My father William and everyone he’s put on the team, their all doing a fantastic job guiding my career.  I’m truly blessed to be where I’m at this stage of my life.  I’m marching forward with the goal to become a world champion.  I’m a hungry fighter, and I won’t be denied.”
