Witherspoon will be making his first start since stopping Carlos Sandoval in the 4th round on October 1, 2016.

“Everything is good, and despite me having a layoff, I am never too far out of shape, so I don’t expect to have any ring rust,” said the 36 year-old native of Paulsboro, New Jersey.

In Sheppard, Witherspoon is taking on a veteran, who has fought a handful of top heavyweights.

“He is a veteran, and he has 25 wins, so you have to respect that. I am not taking him lightly.”

Witherspoon is done taking layoffs, and he does not expect anymore layoffs.

“I want to stay as busy as possible, so I can be ready for big fights. I am closing in on 40 wins, so with the heavyweight division getting hot again, I feel with my record, that I should be able to get into the mix. I always like fighting in Atlantic City. It is a 40 minute drive from my home. It has been a pleasure working with Mis Dowing Promotions, and I look forward to a great night on Saturday.”
