Greek boxer Mike Arnaoutis March 25, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Martial Arts.

After losing his first title match via highly controversial split decision, Cestus Management’s 140-pound contender “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis is back in training.

The Greek powerhouse, who is out to prove that his only loss is a fluke, is slated to face Kendall Holt in a WBO Junior Welterweight title eliminator which will be broadcast live on Showtime. The fight scheduled for April 20, 2007, is going to take place at the Bally’s Event Center, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Arnaoutis, whose record stands at 17-1-2 with 9-kos said, “I was so disappointed in myself as I let my team, Cestus Management, family, friends, and entire country, Greece, down in my last fight against Ricardo Torres,” Mike Michael, Gina Iacovou and all of Team Cestus have been very supportive. I returned home to Athens, Greece for a few weeks and am back in American a very hungry fighter. I’m ready to take that next step and I will win the title very soon,” said Mike Arnaoutis from his training camp in New Jersey.

Cestus Management’s chief advisor Mike Michael stated, “It has not been easy to know that our fighter was robbed of his title but we have been forced to accept it as that is in the past. We are now all focused on the immediate future and I can promise you that Mike Arnaoutis will make good on his potential and we will become world champions soon.”

Michael added, “We as his management company and his promoter, Star Boxing, have done our job as he is right back in the title hunt fighting Kendall Holt in a WBO Junior Welterweight title eliminator. Mighty Mike has learned for his mistakes and is ready to live up to his full potential.”

With five years, 86 rounds, 19 fights and 17 wins under his belt, the moment of truth is at hand for the undefeated junior welterweight contender ‘Mighty’ Mike Arnaoutis, 17-0-2 (9), who took on the once beaten Columbian Ricardo Torres, 29-1 (27), in a 12-round WBO junior welterweight title clash on November, at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

The Greek southpaw has ‘ooh-ed’ and ‘ahh-ed’ the fight world with some entertaining throw downs in his time as a professional fighter. He earned this title shot with a list of fallen foes that include Jesse Feliciano (TKO 1) which earned him the WBO NABO light welterweight strap, Jose Moreno (KO 1) and Roberto Cruz (MD 10). The 140-pound sensation is ready to put an exclamation point on his climb to the top with a win, and a win he guarantees.
