The concept sounds simple. The process is painful.

“We bleed together. We sweat together. We go through everything together,” said boxer Justin Thomas.

Ending a three year long drought, professional boxing is coming back to Baton Rouge.

"It’s a big event and everyone is coming out. Who doesn't like fighting," said Chris Singleton who is on the fight card for the “Battle at the Belle” boxing event Saturday October 27th.

Three locals from the Glen Oaks area are ready. The teammates lean on each other for support, all in hopes of making a hometown splash.

We’ll start with Justin Thomas in the 165 pound weight class. He is making is professional debut.

"We all used to get in a lot of trouble so it’s good that we can get recognized for something good. We are blessed.

We could have been in a worse situation but this has brought out the best of us," Thomas said during a workout Thursday.

Then there’s Chris Singleton. He sports a perfect record of 6-0 with three knockouts.

"We have been on two months notice for this fight. So for two months we have been training very hard, running 5 and 6 miles a day and sparing pretty hard. We just motivate each other because we are one big family," Singleton said.

Let’s not forget the main event, in the 155 pound weight class, Travis Scott. He holds an impressive 11-0 record in the ring with two knockouts.

"I am just focused on what God has in store for me. I am not cocky. When people ask about the fight, I can predict the fight. I just know whoever steps into the ring better be ready because I will bring it," Scott said.

Last but not least we have John McClendon. While he won’t be throwing any punches he still deserves a bit of the credit.

"I just ride my bike behind them while they are running and motivate them. I know that we are ready to show Baton Rouge that we are really going to put on a show," McClendon said.

Collectively, their mission is to win and no doubt help bring boxing back to Baton Rouge.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the Belle of Baton Rouge Casino and at Gladiators Academy in Baton Rouge.
