Super-welterweight prospect, Keandre Leatherwood (10-1, 7 KOs) makes his way back to the squared circle this Friday October 11, 2012, when he battles Marcus Brooks (7-10, 3 KOs) at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The scheduled 6-round bout is promoted by Ring of Dreams in association with Boxing 360.
Leatherwood, who hails from Birmingham, Alabama, has vowed to put more effort into his boxing career as he looks to rally off his last performance, where he stopped Mikel Williams by means of a third round knockout.
"After tasting defeat for the first time in my career against John Jackson, the light bulb went off in my head and I realized I need to be in the gym 24/7." said Leatherwood. "I've made the adjustment to my training regimen and now I'm feeling confident in my ability to fight at the championship level. Boxing 360 is keeping me busy and I'm excited to be fighting this Friday."
"I really believe Keandre has the talent to be a world champion," stated Boxing 360 promoter Mario Yagobi. "I know if he focus' on his career, he'll put himself in position to fight at the next level. Right now I'm working on getting him ranked and we are taking it one fight at a time. As soon as I feel he's ready to step it up, we'll be in a significant fight."
