BRANTFORD – Six Nations’ professional Karl “the Razor’ Hess will face Mexico’s Mario Bedolla Orozco for his debut as a professional boxer, signed by United Boxing Promotions.
Hess will be on a card scheduled for March 17th at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ont. Hess has been working hard and sparing a lot in preparation to his pro debut. But has also been doing all the stuff necessary in launching a new fighter into the pro area. That includes photo shoots, film footage, and interviews. Hess manages all this on top of his already rigorous sparing and training schedule.
Last Wednesday, Hess was on Six Nations’ Jukasa Radio with Two Row Times publisher Jonathan Garlow, talking about his career and his connections with Six Nations.
“Ya he’s been really busy the last few weeks,” says coach Armour, of Brantford’s Black-Eye-Boxing Club.
For some all the extra-curricular work being done behind the scenes could be a distraction, but according to Armour, it has been having the exact opposite affect.
“He’s beginning to feel like a pro,” says Armour. “And that makes him train like a pro. No, he is not distracted by all this at all. It’s been good for him.”
The Two Row Times and team Hess have entered into a sponsorship agreement that will put the TRT in “the Razor’s” corner.
Watch for an opportunity to win tickets in the TRT in the coming weeks.
