Sharif Jones to Make Pro Debut
Philly-based fighter uses momentum to continue MMA winning streak.
Jones is sporting an amateur record of 5-5 after dismantling James Jordan in a unanimous decision match in late 2013.
Jones has a clear advantage in the hand speed and footwork department. Killeen, while possesing some power, has a slower, more stalking pace and seems to leave himself exposed.
After a quick interview with Bamm Bamm, it was plain to see that he planned on making this match one to remember. I asked him how he felt about his first pro fight, and got this spirited response.
"Feeling good! Excited to show the world that amateur records don't mean much, how short of a time I've been at Brazen, how much I learned, and the fighter I become."
Jones, who trains out of Brazen Boxing and MMA, is dead set on making his trainer and coach, Jason Sargus, a proud MMA poppa.
"Going to Sargus's hometown for my first pro fight is like meeting your girl's parents for the first time lol. You try your best to be Impressive and leave out the same way you went in."
It's been quite the road to redemption for Jones, and it looks like the Brazen team along with Bamm Bamm are more than ready to take the next step in this exciting journey.
