Here are some pre-fight comments from Joseph himself:
“I am really excited for my October 13th bout with Gregory Choplin. Gregory is an experienced opponent from France, with approximately 70 fights. I am excited and motivated for the opportunity to show to myself, team and supporters that I although I may only have 6 professional fights, I can compete with those with a lot more experience on paper. With a few fight opportunities not happening prior to this bout, I have been in full training mode since my last bout with Shawn Yarborough in March. This will also be my first fight and my first time in Las Vegas, so I am also excited to see the city as well as compete in front of a new crowd. I have seen a few Lion Fight Promotion events online in the past, and it looks like an amazing show to be a part of.”
As you can see, Joseph has an extremely tough opponent but with the amount of focus and training that he is putting in, we’re confident that he’ll be prepared for action! Don’t forget to follow him on Twitter @BazookaJoeV for updates on his training and more!
