Richard Quiñones (Journeymen Boxing) – Hakim “Braveheart” Bryant will look to score the biggest win of his career when he meets Stanyslav Skorokhod in a six-round middleweight affair Saturday night as part of the Terrence Crawford/Viktor Postol WBO, WBC title undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Bryant (6-0, 4KO’s) will be taking on the first opponent in his career with a winning record, and he is not shying away from the challenge.
“I have seen him fight, he comes forward, I throw a ton of punches, that is my style so I think I can do some good things against him,” he said on Wednesday.
The only blemish in Skorokhod’s (10-1, 8KO’s) career was against John Thompson, who twice fought for a title.
The 26-year-old resident of Asbury Park, New Jersey also understands that time is a factor in his career, and the more active he can be the more noise he can make going forward.
“I am not old, but I am not young in the boxing sense, and I do not want to be 35-years-old and fighting for a title.
Bryant, who turned pro back in 2014, had an outstanding amateur career as he posted a very impressive mark of 64-14, which included being a three-time New Jersey State Champion, and two-time Golden Gloves Champ.
