Continuing the build-up to the Sixto Suazo vs. Rance Ward Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) International Middleweight title fight on December 19 at the Marriott Century Center in Atlanta, both fighters were asked the same five questions.
Yesterday we got the answers from Rance Ward, and today its part two of Q & A Face-Off: Suazo vs. Ward, featuring Sixto Suazo.
Q: Tell me about how you started boxing, and what kind of amateur career you had?
A: I started boxing after trials and tribulations that I experienced through college, and eventually found myself homeless on the streets of Atlanta.
A friend of mine let me crash on a couch he had in the basement. There was a boxing gym across the street.
I always wanted to box, I also needed something to rejuvenate me and blow off some steam. So I stepped into the gym and signed up. The rest is history.
Along my journey, I had close to 60 amateur fights, winning the 2016 Golden Gloves as a novice, and continuing to win several other tournaments as well as compete in some of the nations top competitions, and even advanced through regionals to the nationals, and finished being ranked #5 in the USA Boxing 75 kg. Elite male division in 2018.
Q:: Which boxer would you compare your style to?
A: I would compare my style to Joe Frazier, because I am determined to keep coming no matter what’s thrown at me, and eventually overwhelm my opponents.
Q: Who, if anyone, has been an inspiration to you in your boxing career?
A: Marvin Hagler, because of his dogged determination and relentless pursuit of greatness.
Q: Random and unprofessional question: Cheeseburger with peanut-butter, or pizza with peanut-butter?
A: Haha, neither, but I guess if I had to choose, I would have to say Cheeseburger with peanut-butter. Im not a fan of pizza.
Q: If victorious on December 19, what do you hope to do next in your career?
A: WHEN I’m victorious, I plan to continue moving up the food-chain and eventually becoming a contender against some of the biggest names in the sport, and cementing my name in boxing history!
