Brooklyn, N.Y. – “I am an entertainer. I want to be able to give the crowd what they pay to see.” – Jude Franklin
New York City has a hot bed of young, talented boxers. Some of which are forced to take their talent and skill sets and fight in different areas within the regions of the United States. Brooklyn’s undefeated lightweight sensation Jude Franklin happens to be one of these fighters. For up and coming prospects it can be a daunting task to fight outside of the city where you first began to box. For Franklin, the task has been asked several times over and he’s defeated all challenges.
Franklin (6-0, 5 KOs), is scheduled to fight on May 20, in North Carolina, at the Raleigh Convention Center.
“I’ve been in the gym; getting ready and preparing for my next fight. Whoever I face on fight night I will be ready to defeat them.”
“Right now, for my career North Carolina, is the place that I’m able to get fights and remain active. Promoters in North Carolina are hosting good fight cards and they have competitive fighters that come down to fight in this area.”
“I am taking one fight at a time. I know the fights that I am having now are building me for bigger fights in the future. When I get the opportunity to fight in New York City I’ll be ready.”
Franklin, who has fought within the New York Daily News Golden Gloves, continues to train out of the historical/legendary/famed Gleason’s Boxing Gym under the tutelage of his coach/father Elmo Serrano. Together, both fighter and coach have a strong bond and an understanding of where to direct his career path.
“Elmo is my father. I love him. Without him I would not be doing what I am doing today. If I was offered an opportunity to fight in New York City I would discuss it with my father first. Together we will decide what’s best for me and my career.”
“I get frustrated at times because it’s been hard for me to get a fight on a local card in New York City. My goal is to fight at the Barclays Center. I want to fight at Madison Square Garden as well.”
“I want to fight in front of my hometown fans, friends, and family. I am an entertainer. I want to be able to give everyone what they pay to see. I want to give them fireworks and put on a good show.”
With a destiny to fight in his hometown city of Brooklyn, Franklin continues to take on all challengers and gain valuable experience inside the ring. Possessing great skill and talent, Franklin is a wise young man. He’s a student of the game, as he continues to learn the business side of boxing, both inside and outside of the ring. Together, with his father (Elmo Serrano), he remains focused on taking care of business with each opponent he faces.
“I’m not looking to fight anyone in particular but whoever is put in front of me I will train my best to beat that man.”
“My team and I have a promotional contract in place with Jean Pascal (former light heavyweight champion). I also have an advisor (Greg Leon).”
Franklin is content on defeating any challenger that dares to step in the ring to face him. He continues to ready himself to perform at the highest level of his ability each night on fight night.
“I’m 6-0 with 5 KOs. I know the people in North Carolina will enjoy my next fight.”
“I am an entertainer. I want to be able to give the crowd what they pay to see each time I fight. Come out on May 20, at the Raleigh Convention Center, and watch me achieve my seventh victory.”
