Boxing is taking center stage in the Boston area this weekend when Reyes Boxing Presents Down & Dirty on Saturday night at the Melrose Memorial Hall in Melrose, Massachusetts. Eric “Gladiator” Goff is looking for his fifth win in a row when he takes on Richard Barnard in a welterweight bout. Goff has three knockouts on his record, and tells MILLIONS he plans on getting another, “I’m an intelligent fighter, you will see me patiently observe his mistakes and then set him up for the knockout.”
Goff is heading into this bout as the smaller fighter and he knows he’s going to be at a reach disadvantage. “I’ve been focused on setting up my offense with my defense,” says Goff, who is going to be looking to get on the inside, “I knew defending and getting past the jab would be key to me dominating the fight and getting the knockout.”
Even though Goff is undefeated, he only has four professional fights under his belt, and he says he’s looking to make a statement this weekend. “This fight is very important to me, I have a lot to prove to a lot of people. And I intend to show who I am on Saturday night.”
Goff’s fans already know what kind of fighter he is, and heading into this big event, he wants them all to know how much he appreciates them.
“Thank you to my fans who support me unconditionally, my family, friends, and especially those of you I haven’t met. I can’t do this without you guys, thank you to each and every one of you for being part of my journey.”
