McCombs vs Carrasquillo – There’s an energy in guys as they get close to their fights. It’s a mixture of being excited, being a little nervous, and getting to their weigh-in weight.
When we did the photo and video shoot for Brawl in the Burgh, it was 5 weeks before the show. The guys are relaxed. They are getting good training in and are excited to do the promotional requirements.
But we are now 5 days out from the fights and guys tend to have a little bit of a chip on their shoulder. A little bit hungry, tired. They are putting in their last couple of days of preparation and getting ready for Friday’s weigh-in. McCombs vs Carrasquillo
Whats stands out most to me about McCombs vs Carrasquillo is the excitement both of these guys have to get this fight on! Quincy has fought all of his previous 4 fights in Ohio, so I can tell how excited he is to perform in front of his hometown crowd in Pittsburgh.
Pat, along with 247 Fighting Championships Lightweight Champion Khama Worthy, are the two 247 FC veterans on this card. He comes in with the experience of fighting in this venue, Printscape Arena, in front of this crowd and for this promotion.
Let me say this… both of these young men are young lions… a ton of talent, active and hungry. This is Quincy’s third and Pat’s forth fight of 2019.
Pat is coming off back to back wins after dropping a split decision in his MMA debut in February. Quincy is coming off his first ever defeat, in April, after starting his career 3-0.
McCombs vs Carrasquillo – both are salivating for this fight because they both just love this sport and want to learn and grow so much.
The texts from Quincy show his state of mind:
Quincy – I’m excited man. I’m looking forward to showing you my abilities.
Pat, on the other hand, is a man of little words. He seems so focused that there is nothing that can distract him. He has goals and that’s clear in this IG post with his friend and teammate (also on the card), Jahron Mendoza.
This is a huge fight that has plenty of implications. Both fighters, with a win, will be well positioned to be in contention to be 247’s first amateur lightweight champion. I’d love for one of these two to fight for that title on our November 16th card.
McCombs vs Carrasquillo – Come out and support these two in what I expect to be a great fight between two guys who are on their way to stardom!
