Susan Cingari interview with Olympic Gold Medalist & CEO of Fight Time Promotions Howard Davis JR

MustLoveMMA.com reporter Susan Cingari speaks with Olympic Gold Boxing Medalist and CEO of Fight Time Promotions Howard Davis JR.

Davis talks about his company’s new deal with CBS Sports Network and their plans for the future. Davis also gives us a sneak peak into their next card – Fight Time 23 – “Mayhem in Miami”~going down Feb 6th at the Magic City Casino in Miami.

He also tells us the inspiring story of how days before he competed in the 1976 Olympics, his mother died and how he was forced to make an agonizing decision to stay and compete or leave the games.

He stayed and won gold for his mom and was also awarded the “Val Barker Trophy” at the 1976 Olympics, beating out such boxers as Sugar Ray Leonard, Michael Spinks and Leon Spinks.

Davis turned pro after the Olympics and went on to a professional record of 36–6–1 with 14 knockouts.

Davis also tells us what it was like to train UFC legend Chuck Liddell and discusses being inducted into the Broward County Sports Hall Of Fame.

Find out if Mixed Martial Arts was around today if Davis would be competing in it and which one of his sons became a professional boxer?
