Lockport, NY (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
World Kickboxing Association United States Light Heavyweight Champion Amer Abdallah has his sights set on one thing: fulfilling his dream of becoming world champion. Currently ranked in the top ten in the world by the WKA, Abdallah, at 36 years of age, has a newly kindled spark that ends with one option, becoming the number one kickboxer in the world.
He has recently made a life-changing transition with his primary focus being on his individual training and running his Lockport, New York based promotions company, Lace Up Promotions. Averaging six to eight fights a year, Lace Up Promotions runs world championship Muay Thai and Kickboxing events along the East Coast in Lockport, Rochester, Syracuse and Rhode Island. Having crowned numerous regional, national and even a world champion, Abdallah’s company is attracting much national attention.
“Putting athletes on a big stage and allowing them to perform in front of a packed stadium is the dream every fighter has. I love being able to provide them that opportunity,” Abdallah said.
His own professional career is a full time job in itself, usually occupying six hours of his day. Having recently partnered with family friend Jeff Mayweather as his boxing coach, Abdallah loves the grind. His last two camps have been based out of the world famous Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“I love being in the gym with world class fighters. Everyone pushes each other to be their best and it’s an unprecedented experience every day,” Abdallah stated. “It’s even more intense when Floyd is in camp preparing for a mega fight. Everyone in the gym feeds off of his unparalleled work ethic.”
Team Abdallah has their next scheduled fight set for June 7, 2014. “We would have taken a November 23 fight date, but Amer is in the middle of making a rather large transition at his Lockport Athletic & Fitness Club and cannot fully commit to training,” Team Abdallah manager, Ahmed Imamovic said.
