When the door closes behind “The Suitcase Kid” Eugene Aubrey and he looks across the cage, he is very confident that he has worked and studied harder than his opponent. That work ethic is what has gotten the 22 year old this far. Aubrey was successful in his professional debut with a first round TKO at CES MMA 52 Philadelphia just a couple of months ago. He now looks for his next challenge.
Eugene did not hesitate for one second when he was offered the chance to take on Jake Kozorosky. Kozorosky finished his amateur career with a 7-0 record and is currently 3-0 as a pro. Aubrey has always stood by the notion that he only wants tough fights. He’s looking to get better and grow in this sport and there is no better way than signing on that dotted line to try and give Jake his first career loss.
I’ve had the chance to speak with several of the Suitcase Kid’s training partners and they have all looked at me in amazement when I ask them about working with Aubrey on a daily basis. Gas tank is the overwhelming response I get from them. He continually pushes the pace for himself and the rest of his teammates. He leads by example and is a student of the game. He will watch every piece of film available and work every corner possible. Aubrey lives and breathes the fight game.
I stopped to visit Eugene in South Philadelphia at Royal Striking where he develops his game-plan with Aaron Meisner and hones his striking skills. Check out our video in the link above. Aubrey will take on Kozorosky November 10th at Art of war Cagefighting 9, in Manheim Pennsylvania inside the Spooky Nook as Mike Bickings puts on another stacked fight card I will be cage-side for commentary and MyMMANews will have results and a full recap of the night’s action.
