Detroit Sports Podcast - 2 Bad Hombres
On this week's episode, Doc and Vito are joined in studio by Triple G trainer Johnathon Banks plus Chances Make Champions Promotions and Team Hands-On Boxing Gym founder/CEO Dequan Marion! Banks, also the lead trainer for CMC Promotions, and Marion talk all about "Fight Night at The Velodrome" (set to take place Saturday, Aug. 10, at The Lexus Velodrome on Mack Ave. in Detroit), what it will consist of, its partnership with The Salvation Army and long-term plans for it. The guys also dive into how CMC Promotions came to be, what a prototypical Detroit boxer is like as well as the importance of being mentally strong and being able to block out all the outside noise as a boxer.
Plus: Banks discusses being trained by Hall of Fame trainer Emanuel Steward, how it molded the way in which he trains boxers today, how studying fellow Detroit product Thomas "Hitman" Hearns and other legendary boxers influenced the boxer he became, the most challenging time in his boxing career, how training the "Fight Night" boxers will be different from and similar to training world champion boxers such as Triple G and Wladimir Klitschko, Steward's lasting legacy, the way in which Team Hands-On Boxing Gym carries on Steward's legacy and more!
