Mickey Bey Now a Free Agent, Aims For Big Fights Like Gervonta

One time world lightweight champion Mickey Bey and his advisory team of Andre Rozier and Team Havoc have revealed that Bey is now a promotional free agent after parting ways with Greg Cohen.

Bey returned to the ring in the late stages of 2019 at Madison Square Garden and impressed onlookers in New York and on ESPN+. Bey, who many consider a natural super featherweight despite holding a world lightweight belt, opened up about his plans for 2020.


Bey said, “I’d like to thank Greg Cohen for the time he put into my career but due to circumstances outside the ring my team felt we needed to part ways so that’s what we have done.

“My advisor Andre Rozier and Team Havoc have been a massive help to me over recent months, and I’m excited to get back in the ring in 2020. I still have an Indian summer left in my career, and I believe that I still have a world title in me at 130 or 135.

“I’m open to fighting at two different weights. I just want to get into some real fights and show the world that I’m still fresh, I’m still a 12 round fighter and I still have the ability to become a world champion.”

With fighters such as Gervonta Davis fluctuation between weights at 130-135, there appear to be some big fights to be made in the lower weight classes. Bey offered his take on the current 130-135 pound scene.

He said, “There are a lot of fighters moving up and down in weight around me and I can do the same thing. I massively respect Gervonta Davis as a champion, but if he wanted to give me an opportunity I would give him the fight of his life I can assure you of that.

“I trust my team of Andre and Chris at Havoc to make the right moves for me, but let it be known I am game to face anyone at 130 and 135 pounds.”

Bey is advised by trainer of seven world champions and head of Havoc Management and Advisory Andre Rozier and Rozier offered his outlook on the future for the Cleveland standout.

Rozier said, “Mickey come to camp for his last fight and I believed he looked very good and showed everyone that he still has a lot to give to the sport of boxing.

“I would prefer Mickey down at 130 pounds but he has the talent to compete at both super featherweight and lightweight. He is a top class fighter and I believe he gives any super featherweight or lightweight in the world serious problems.”

So why he leave

I just wish he would've taken better care of his business upfront, rather than watching it all go down and passively "approach" Floyd and his team about it. He probably thought he was entitled to more money because of his…

Mayweather really destroyed this kid's career. What ever happened to Mayweather Promotions anyways? Are they still around?
