By Lee Thornton – In the bright lights of New York city boxing trainer, Andre Rozier has quietly built a very successful stable of fighters known for overcoming the odds stacked against them.
When speaking of Rozier’s fighters and overcoming adversity, middleweight sensation Daniel Jacobs stunned the sporting world with his courageous comeback after defeating the toughest test of all, cancer.
Jacobs on his comeback trail would shock boxing fan s by stopping Peter Quillin early and then giving Gennady Golovkin the toughest fight of his career.
Going into the fight with Golovkin a feared skilful welterweight Jacobs wasn’t expected to last more than 8 rounds, he exceeded expectations once again losing a close decision.
Rozier then led Sadam Ali to a shocking upset victory over boxing legend Miguel Cotto in the Puerto Rican’s farewell fight.
Watching Andre Rozier in his boxers corner is a work of art consisting of clear concise instructions that help boxers make key adjustments in pivotal moments. Great gameplans for every scenario is a key coaching trait Rozier displays.
Rozier builds a father like figure rapport with his boxers allowing him to understand them mentally and gain fighters full trust.
Some other very talented boxers to look out for in Andre’s stable are Sergey Derevyanchenko, a highly skilled aggressive boxer from the Ukraine who is highly underrated with a lot of amateur boxing success.
Along with Richard Commey of Ghana who has tremendous heart, power and puts on a fight of the year type performances, under Rozier he will only improve. I would love to see a rematch of Richard Commey and Robert Easter.
On April 28th Daniel Jacobs will be in action vs the underrated polish boxer Maciej Sulecki and May 12th Sadam Ali takes on Liam Smith both broadcasted on HBO.
Keep your eye on those fights boxing fans and listen carefully to hear some brilliant corner work by Mr.Andre Rozier.
