George, of Greek decent, is coming off a impressive and highly entertaining win in his last fight against once-beaten Osumanu Adama.  It was George’s 2nd win in 2010, and an another win tomorrow night on the nationally televised broadcast will be a yet another major step forward towards Super Middleweight supremacy for the Chicago native.

George said, “I can’t describe the incredible feeling I have. My manager (Cestus) made this title fight possible and I have the chance to fight for a title; it’s a dream come true and the victory will be even sweeter.” George added, “I know that Sierra can punch, but so can I and if he fights hard like he said, I will fight even harder. I have never been more ready in my life; the title is mine.” (continue reading…)
