"Signing Bobby Bryant has long been a priority of mine at Prize Fight", stated Prize Fight CEO Brian Young. "I have been honored to have promoted a few of Bobby's fights already and have always admired his growth process beginning in the amateur ranks and now has an undefeated professional", Young continued. "With Bobby's young age, charisma, and excellent boxing ability I feel he can become a super star in our sport. This is a perfect fit being that Bobby is a Memphian and Prize Fight calls Memphis and the greater Mid South home as well. I also want to thank Bobby's father, manager and trainer John Bryant for being very instrumental in not only making Bobby the great young boxer he is today but also making him into the honorable young man he is", concluded Young.
Bobby Bryant began boxing at just nine years old hoping the conditioning and training he would receive would help him overcome injuries sustained from a childhood All Terrain Vehicle accident. He didn't think that the trip to the gym eleven years ago would put him on a path to build a stellar amateur record of 112-17, win the 2007 National Jr. Golden Gloves Tournament at just 15 years of age, and turn professional at just 17 years of age. "I started boxing to get stronger and recover from other injuries", stated Bobby. "I never thought it would lead to this but it has been a great ride. It is far from over. I feel like this signing is a new chapter. A chapter that will see me get showcased on national television, win a regional title, get ranked in the World and eventually see me accomplish my goal of winning a World Title", Bryant also said. "I feel with my dad, Prize Fight and me that we have a great team in place to take it to the top", Bryant continued.
Bobby Bryant will be making his first official fight under the Prize Fight banner on October 13, 2012 from the Cook Convention Center in downtown Memphis, TN.
