Abell out for Revenge against Lyons !
Press Release: July 13, 2010
"Minnesota Ice" Abell was once a can't miss heavyweight prospect. The
6'4 240 lb power punching phenom viciously stopped eight of his first
nine victims inside of two rounds, emphatically stamping his ticket as
one of boxing's most exciting up and comers in the process. Abell, who
literally knocked opponents out of the ring, was undoubtedly on the fast
track to success; this was until he met Arron Lyons.
Lyons was expected to be another opponent
the Coon Rapids native would walk right through, but Abell’s night it
wasn’t. The New Mexico product scored a shocking first round stoppage,
leaving the crowd at Philadelphia ’s Legendary Blue Horizon in
disbelief. The defeat was also disheartening for Abell and an experience
he still remembers to this day.
“The loss hit me pretty quickly and it was
painful”, said Abell, who was stopped on his feet. “I felt like I
disappointed a lot of people that night. It was a major let down to
myself and my loyal fans.”
This Saturday night at the St. Paul Armory,
Abell will have his crack at redemption when he meets Lyons , 11-8 (8
KO’s), over long awaited ten rounds. The rematch is four years in the
making and finalizing the deal was not an easy task. Lyons was also
overzealous after the victory and boasted to local media, so Abell knows
he must capitalize on the opportunity.
“Of all the fighters to defeat me, I wanted
a rematch with Lyons the most because he was a real piece of garbage”
emphatically stated Abell, whose current record is 26-4 with 25 kayos.
“He badmouthed me and was blatantly disrespectful, so I am to prove that
the loss was a fluke and its time to shut him up”!
