“I am very excited to sign with Split-T Management because this is a big opportunity for me to get to the next level of boxing,” Said Jones. ” Everyone will love seeing me fight because I’m all action. My boxing idol is Marvelous Marvin Hagler and I have adopted his motto ” Seek and Destroy!” My style is to impose my strength and will on an opponent, inflict as much pain as possible so they realize there is nothing they can do to beat me”.

Said Carlos Llinas, “I have been following Isiah’s career since he was an amateur winning two Detroit Golden Gloves Championships. Detroit is going to see a fighter that will remind you of the Michigan greats of yesteryear.”
