This week Premier Boxing is making sure Christmas comes twice to Atlanta.

During my radio show if his name is even mentioned, the phone lines would light up like the north star with people hoping to win tickets or get more information on his upcoming match 12/28 at State Farm Arena. The feeling of pure excitement for this match and fandom for the fighter was so thick in the air during last nights open to the public media workout, that it could almost be tasted as soon as you entered the parking lot of Atlanta Sports Complex. The gym was packed almost an hour before the event was scheduled with fans and families eager to get a glimpse of the champion and his stable mates of Upton Boxing Center. They all looked forward to being woven into one of the most anticipated sporting events the city will experience this year. Even the young kids looked onward with a twinkle in their eyes as Gervanta made his way through the crowd minutes before the event kicked off. From the first bell of the workout, in Upton Boxing Center fashion, the energy, power and flare where absolutely present!
