Interview with Joshua Abrahams above
This rising prospect is set to fight on the June 18, Triton Fights card in Westbury, New York. Triton Fights returns to Long Island after relocating for a single show in Tampa Bay, Florida, during the pandemic. Joshua Abrahams is a rising talent on the amateur circuit. Waiting on a new opponent, Abrahams expects the same results though inside the cage. A first-round TKO.
The rising star of the lightweight division is a former basketball point guard. Fully dedicating himself to learning the numerous disciplines of mixed martial arts, Abrahams’ focus drives his training and his preparations support his confidence.
This young man’s excitement to train and compete shined through during the interview. He expressed his love for the one-on-one competition while explaining why he’d rather compete in MMA verse working a traditional 9 to 5 job.
Abrahams proves his dedication every day via his commute to the gym. Traveling from New Jersey, he makes the one and a half hour trip each way every day. In the interview, Abrahams mentions he trains six to seven days a week. While having a black belt in Taekwondo, he may be considered a striker, but he believes he’s a well-rounded fighter as he trains wrestling and BJJ just as often as he does striking.
In addition, Abrahams believes his mental toughness is on a different level compared to his opponents. As he mentions in the interview, many fighters are talented, but their lack of mental toughness holds them back from expressing their full potential inside the cage.
