Boxing with the Truth: Could I please get a statement about your fight with Travis Kauffman?
Amir”Harcore”Mansour: “Excited about this fight. Travis comes to rumble and so do I.” Been preparing as usual and I’m looking forward to the 17th. We will be in his backyard, on a card his father is promoting, so that is always a suspect situation when it comes to the judging. He has a pretty basic skill set but he’s a good fighter. I’am motivated and ready! Sparks will definitely fly next Friday night.
