Top Rank has a considerable amount of fighters signed within their stable, who are all focused and determined, to stand out amongst themselves and the best.
Bob Arum’s Top Rank newest signee, 18 – year old Jahi Tucker of Deer Park (NY), returns back to the ring on February 13, back at the bubble, in Las Vegas, where he will further his professional career.
Tucker himself has a current professional record of 2-0 (1 KO), having only just turned 18 (January 18th).
Tucker, the former number one ranked amateur boxer in the United States, decided to forgo fighting in the Olympics (Tokyo 2021), to take his career, to the next level, and enter the professional ranks.
With the backing of his team and the one and only J Prince, Tucker’s drive to succeed is one that many believe in.
In speaking with Tucker, you can hear his desire and focus to return back to the ring.
Currently 5’11, it’s expected that the young Tucker may add an inch or two in height, given that he’s still growing.
When you view his style of boxing, you can see flashes of his favorite fighters:
- Floyd Mayweather
- Roy Jones Jr
- Vasiliy Lomachenko
In fact, his skills are what gained him the opportunity to fight on the undercard of the lightweight unification fight between former champion Lomachenko vs new unified champion Teofimo Lopez.
A lover of classic mob movies, including Goodfellas: Why am I funny? Do I amuse you?
Tucker is wise beyond his years and truly focused on bettering his craft – each day, each night, and each fight.
Tune in for Tucker’s return back to the ring, this coming Saturday, live on ESPN+
