Prichard Colon
I would like to introduce to the fight world, undefeated light middleweight prospect, Prichard Colon 1-0 (1). Born in Florida, raised in Puerto Rico, fighting is in the blood of the nineteen year old. Colon, which is pronounced, cologne, started boxing at the age of six yeard old, and earned various medals and awards in local and international tournaments, compiling up an amateur career total of 170-15.

Prichard made his pro debut, February 23rd,  on the Miguel Cotto Promotions undercard, stopping Xavier Lasalle in twenty-five4 seconds of the opening round. Colon will make his second attempt this Saturday night at the Bahia Shrine Temple in Orlando, FL, when he takes on Floridian Patrick Thomas in his pro debut. in this exclusive interview,we get the thoughts from the young gun, enjoy.

Benny Henderson Jr.: What inspired you to want to lace up the gloves?

Prichard Colon:
I started boxing when I was six, my father had a brief career, at home we had to play sports, no matter which sport it was. With my Dad being a boxer in his time, I did a little bit of everything but I stuck with boxing.

BH: You made your pro debut back in February, what was it like for you to step in the ring as a pro, getting in the ring with no head gear, smaller gloves etc?

I was a little anxious, I was off for about nine months, but, I was ready. it is a little different, but I felt great. Especially with the first round knock out.

BH: You have had only one pro fight, but, what do you feel will separate you from the other prospects in your division?

I am very patient, people always said I was more fit to be a pro. I make people miss and make them pay, also with me being so tall, I can box, move, my reach.

BH: What do you want to accomplish in 2013?

I am hoping to at least be 6-0 by December.

BH: I know at this time you are not promoted, so my question, how hard is it negotiating fights?

It is a little difficult not being promoted or backed by a promotional company, but, my brother helps me, it is not easy but we are getting through it.

BH: What message would you send out to the fight world?

Come see me fight, people who have come seen me fight, usually ended up supporting me. I come to give it a show, all the way from the ring walk, all the way up to the fight. I love giving knock outs.
