Wednesday May 20, 2015– Our correspondent Arlow Jumper interviewed Eric “The Outlaw” Hunter today. Eric will take on Antonio Escalante (29-7, 20 KOs) this Friday, May 22 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in his second fight of 2015 since fighting on the undercard of the high-profile Sergey Kovalev vs. Bernard Hopkins championship card last November.
Finally on track to fulfilling the potential so many saw in him, 28-year-old Eric “The Outlaw” Hunter (20-3, 10 KOs) from the Philadelphia boxing scene was an alternate on the 2004 US Olympic team who fought through the ups and downs of the fight game and is now looking to get in the title picture in 2015. Winner of five of his last six bouts, including three straight, the Philadelphia native defeated highly regarded Rene Alvarado in January and he wants to keep the momentum going on May 22.
