Brooklyn’s Christopher Colbert, known to fight fans as “Lil BHop” or “The Golden Child”, is a talented young prospect with an extensive amateur background. The former Junior Olympian, 2x National Champion, and 2014 Daily News Golden Gloves winner is currently 5-0 (2 KOs) as a professional.
Training out of the famed SosaCrew camp with other undefeated prospects Julian Sosa (7-0, 2 KOs/welterweight), Earl Newman Jr. (10-0, 7 KOs/cruiserweight), and the newly Mayweather Promotions signee 2016 Haitian Olympian Richardson Hitchins Colbert continues to make his mark within the professional ranks. After signing with Premier Boxing Championships he is ready to take his career to the next level.
“I’m only 5-0; it doesn’t matter if my opponent is 10-0, 11-0; if it makes money then it makes sense.”
“I’m not calling anyone out but I’m ready to fight anyone in and around my division. The best have to fight the best and there’s only one way to prove that. I’m ready to prove that I’m the best.”
“I can fight anyone between featherweight (126lb) and super-featherweight (130lb). It doesn’t matter who the fighter is. If the fight can be made, at either weight, it won’t matter to me. Any prospect in the featherweight division that feels they are the next best thing in boxing let’s step in the ring and see.”
Colbert, who has fought in many arenas, shared his desire to fight more in the city where he first began to box.
“I’m a very good defensive fighter and I rarely get hit. If given the call I’d like to fight once a month.”
“I don’t run, duck, or hide from anyone. I’m ready to fight whoever dares to challenge me. I can fight anywhere. I can fight in Alaska, Nebraska, anywhere; anytime I get that call I’ll be ready.”
“A lot of my fights have been out of the city. Most of my fights have been in Bethlehem, PA. I’d like to fight more in my city but honestly it doesn’t matter. I have a good fan base. I’m a fighter that people like to see. I’m exciting and I bring the fight to my opponent.”
Colbert expressed his thoughts on returning back to the ring.
“I am looking to return to the ring in March. I’d like to fight on the undercard of the Keith Thurman-Danny Garcia unification championship fight that’s taking place at the Barclays Center.”
“My sparring has been great. I’ve been working with world champions. I plan to have a big year. I plan to be 10-0 by the end of this year. Stay Tuned.”
