For the past two months, Reykon has been training twice a day in Miami, preparing for what will be his very first professional fight against WBA International Champion Joe Fournier set to take place Saturday night (April 16) in Atlanta at the Triller Fight Club event.
Why the Colombian reggaeton singer is going in the ring to box Fournier on a fight card promoted by Triller, a company that is mixing hip-hop entertainment and boxing? Well, that gets a little blurry.
It all started back in February when both had an encounter at a nightclub in Miami. "He challenged me the next day and I thought, 'I don't even know this guy,'" Reykon remembers. "But I agreed because I want to prove that I'm ready for anything that comes my way. I know that training two months won't equal all his years boxing, but I'm mentally prepared, and that's where I'll outsmart him."
