Boxing returns to Macon, Georgia this Saturday, October 21st at the Shrine Temple as the Montgomery Brothers, Maliek, Mikhail, and Michael Jr, all guided by Witness Sports Management’s Greg Hannely and Jared Shaw, look to prove why they’re the future of boxing atop a stacked card in the heart of the south.
All three brothers who were born and raised in Macon, GA, are featured in four-round bouts as Maliek Montgomery (1-0, 1KO) will face veteran Calvin Smith (2-11), Mikhail Montgomery (1-0 1KO), who will be making his pro debut, will face Tony Jones, as Michael Montgomery Jr. will face Edwin Aceves (Pro debut). As amateur boxers, the three brothers had an outstanding combined record of 419-44. All three brothers are trained by their father, Michael Montgomery Sr.
“It is an honor to fight in Macon, Georgia, as we didn’t have many boxing cards growing up out here, and it is a great feeling to help bring a professional boxing match to my hometown,” said Maliek Montgomery. “This is a rare opportunity for my brothers and I show our hometown fans what we got, now that we are professional boxers.”
“I am proud to fight in Georgia and it is Macon, that makes it even better,” Michael Montgomery Jr.
stated. “I am excited about this fight and wish it was fight night already. All I can tell you is get ready for a great performance as I’m looking to bring some heat when I step in the ring.”
“It is a great feeling to make my professional debut in my hometown and alongside my brothers and father,” Mikhail Montgomery said. “We’ve all worked very hard for moments like this. With this being my pro debut, I’m looking to shine. This is going to be a fight you don’t want to miss.”
“My boys are ready to show our hometown fans that they are elite fighters,” said Michael Montgomery Sr. “No fighter out of Macon, Georgia has ever won a world title and my boys have a great chance to become the first to do so. I’m expecting a lot of family and friends to be in attendance. My sons are super excited to be fighting in Macon and everyone watching will know they are some rough boys, with some serious boxing skills.”
“The Montgomery brothers are special.” said Greg Hannely. “They have a fan friendly style that I know will resonate with their hometown fans. In boxing, you want to see fighters that like to engage, and the Montgomery brothers are a perfect example of what action fighters should look like. These boys can bang.”
“The time has come where all three brothers will be fighting on the same card,” said co-manager Jared Shaw. “The fact that this card is taking place in Macon, Georgia, is truly amazing. As managers, you always want to build a solid fanbase in the city where the fighter is from. In this case, we got three bonified fighters, fighting in their hometown. Real fighters, fight, and Macon is going to be proud to call the Montgomery’s their own.”
