KILLEEN, TX, August 17, 2012 – South Texas is back in focus next Saturday, August 25th when Rock’s King of Supplements presents “Blood & Glory” at the Richard M. Borchard Fairgrounds in Robstown, Texas.
There’s a lot to look forward to with this card featuring some of South Texas’ top veteran fighters along with some new blood looking to make waves on the Texas MMA scene.
One of the noteworthy fighters to watch on this card is Killeen-based fighter and former Copperas Grove linebacker Geoffrey Neal (Twin Wolves).
He’ll be making his pro debut after recently finishing up his amateur career with an impressive 10-1 record including two amateur titles.
Because of his accomplishments at the amateur level there are many touting him as potentially one of the top new pros on the Texas fight circuit.
He’s not one to get wrapped up in the hype.
“People say that (I have) an amazing record but I see it as just a number. Plus it’s amateur. I like to be honest with myself. I’ve only been in the fighting game for a little over two years so I still have a lot to learn.”
Geoff actually meant to take a break after his last TKO win over Lester Clark this past April but found that he couldn’t stay away.
“I’ve been at the gym non-stop since that last fight,” Geoff admits. “I tried to take a break but I didn’t know what to do with myself with all the extra energy I had. Training gives me the peace of mind that I need. It keeps me out of trouble and it keeps me humble. I just want to train hard and get better. Plus I wanted to help my teammates with fights they had coming up.”
Looking ahead to his own fight at Rock’s “Blood and Glory,” Geoff will be debuting against David Mcafee, an Alabama-based opponent with a 3-2 pro record.
Admittedly, Geoff doesn’t know all too much about his opponent aside from the fact he’ll be on the wrong end of what should be an exciting fight.
“When I’m in the cage my only mindset is to finish the fight as quick as I can. I HATE decisions so I try to be aggressive, mean, and tenacious.”
“I see it going my way where ever the fight goes. Standing, ground, and clinch. I feel I’m starting to become a more well-rounded fighter so I’m confident with dealing any situation that may come.”
“I want to thank my family, friends, teammates, coaches, God, and anybody else who has helped me get to this point in my life. I’m grateful for what I have now and I’ll be sure not to let it go to waste.”
