Tony Ferguson Adds Legendary Boxing Coach To Fight Team

Last updated

UFC Lightweight fighter Tony Ferguson recently took to Instagram to confirm that he has made some changes behind the scenes. Ferguson is coming off of back-to-back losses against Justin Gaethje and Charles Oliveira; so the LW contender knew that he had to make changes going forward.

Tony Ferguson confirmed in a statement on Instagram that he has added Freddie Roach to his corner. Roach is regarded as being one of the greatest boxing trainers of all time; fighters such as Manny Pacquiao,  Miguel Cotto, Julio César Chávez Jr., James Toney and Georges St-Pierre have all trained under Roach.

“I used to not get hit” Tony Ferguson wrote. “Then I changed things up a bit. [I] had to figure it out after getting hit more and more each fight. [I] Decided not to take anymore unnecessary damage [and] made the mandatory changes.”

“[I] Promised My Faith/Family/Friends I would not take damage like the last few fights” Ferguson continued. When a corner of mine wouldn’t work on simple slip drills I knew I had to make changes. When a cornerman forgot water during the round mid fight I knew I had to make changes.”

“I got sick and tired of being sick and tired, I did something about it” Tony Ferguson proclaimed. “Quit bitchin’ & went to work. Lots of cool things coming up, [I’ve] been working hard.”

Tony Ferguson’s next fight has not yet been officially confirmed, however the UFC veteran will be looking to come back with a bang.
