This will kick off a very active spring and summer for Lennox as the former gridiron standout will inducted into the Carteret High School of Fame in June.

“He is ready for this fight”, said Lennox manager Rich Masini

“He has been sparring with former world champion Bert Cooper.  We know that these fights now will be for all the marbles as this will be his first eight round fight”

“Middleton is a very experienced opponent and we consider this a big step and these are the fights that will prove the doubters wrong”

A win over Middleton will pave the way for what will be a special night for Lennox as Masini is planning a big homecoming for the popular heavyweight.

“We want to win this belt and we are planning a step fight on the first weekend of June, which will be outdoors at the 5,000 seat football stadium and we believe we can pack the place with a title fight”

After that Masini hopes to have Lennox on a fight card at The Meadowlands Race Track in July.

Lennox, who turned pro at 199 pounds, has been building his body for the past five years is now maturing into a full fledged heavyweight.

“We expect him to be fighting at 230-232 pounds on April 7th at that shows the hard work he has put in and I want him to reap the rewards on that work so much that I consider John to as close to a son to me”

“We know where John is and we truly believe in him.  We are on a quest to win as many belts as we can and after a few fights, not only will John be ready for ten round fights but we will be ready to fight anyone”

“We have just added Joe Alvarano to the team.  He quickly has been an integral part in John’s career”

Alvarano, whose son Joe Jr. will be taking part in a special amateur fight at the Carteret High School card, has been in professional sports for many years as he comes from the Horse Racing industry where he owned champion horses such as Artisic Fella.

The Newly formed Entertainment and Promotional company that Masini and Alvarano will be aligned with will be a huge asset in moving Masini’s growing stable of fighters such as John Lennox, Welterweight Anthony “Juice” Young, Super Middleweight Joel De La Paz and Cruiserweight Jaywon Woods with the goal to mix boxing and Harness Racing together.
