Chris Brown ready for his 1st Main Event bout of this pro career

Local Sports

Chris Brown, AKA “The Future” or “Breezy”, is ready after a long wait to finally take to the octagon.

Brown has had trouble finding fights due to the hype that has been generated at Jackson and Wink Academy, as they even call Brown Jon Jones Jr.

Would be opponents have either backed out or just not even taken a fight with Brown, but he now does have about set for Saturday against Thomas Gifford.

“He is 16 and 7 with 2 no contests. So, this is the type of competition that I have to fight because no one will fight me. This is my 3rd fight in a year and a half as a pro because nobody wants to fight”, said Chris Brown.

Brown is currently 2-0 in his young professional career, and with this being his 1st main event he is excited.

However, he does have a tough test in Gifford who has won four of his last five fights. Brown isn’t looking too much into that though, as he feels more than ready for this bout.

“He wants to do jujitsu, he has no takedown defense, he just wants you to take him to the ground, but my ground game is way better. He doesn’t have the credentials that I have, I was a two-time state champ AAU, and I have been training over here with all of these killers. He is definitely not on my level”, said Brown.

Brown hopes to soon be at the next level in his career, but its only a matter of time as he has a lot of upside in his future. “I believe he will go through this guy and a couple of more fights he will get a contender series type of fight, and on his way to the big time”, said Jackson and Wink Head Striking Coach Mike Winkelojohn. 

Brown hopes that the UFC comes calling, but if that doesn’t work out he is ok with it. “If the UFC wants to low ball me we might go to Bellator. We have never had a champ out of Bellator before, so either of those would be great for me. Either way I am going to go and dominate”, said Brown.

Chris Brown’s main event bout will be on Saturday in Mississippi and it will be streamed live on tv at Fights start up at 6 p.m.
