Junior Middleweight Erik Spring is finally finding his groove, and he will be able to show it tomorrow night when he takes on undefeated David Wilson in a six-round featured bout at SugarHouse Casino in a Philadelphia.
The fight will be televised on LIVE on Eleven Sports beginning at 9 PM ET, and is promoted by King’s Promotions.
Spring of Reading, PA has a record of 9-1-2 with one knockout, and is unbeaten in his last five bouts (3-0-2).
He continued to step up the competition, and he looks for his 2nd consecutive win over an undefeated foe.
“My camp went great. I got terrific sparring. I did some work with (former two-time world champion) Kermit Cintron and that helped me tremendously,” said Spring.
In Wilson, he is taking on a fellow southpaw, but Spring will look to take the action to the New Haven, Connecticut resident.
“Wilson is a southpaw. It should be a great fight. Like me, he is a boxer, and the smarter fighter should win. I have to be more of the aggressor, and I will look to bully him.”
Spring, who is 33 years-old, knows that time is now to begin to move towards being a contender, and after starting his career as a kickboxer, Spring is finally begin to feel 100% comfortable usuing just his hands.
“I think it is time for me to be on the rise and start to get known. I feel now that after coming over from kickboxing, everything is starting to come together, and the best boxing is clearly ahead of me. A win on Friday will go a long way into that upward swing, and I look to put on a great show.”
