Aaron “Gorilla” Green (10,0) is coming off of his 10th victory as a pro heavyweight. He has been one of Minnesota’s busiest fighters and things don’t look to slow down any time soon. He fights a featured bout against King Kong this Friday in Hinckley Minnesota. One month after Gorilla Green is slated to fight April 13 in the twin ports at Wessman Arena. For many fighters all this activity may be hard, but I’ve known Mr. Green since he turned pro, and he would be working his butt off fight or no fight.
Along with all the action team Green has been getting in the ring, they have also had to listen to the non stop speculation of a showdown with former Viking, Ray Edwards… While Green and his team have no worries of that fight, they are maintaining focus on what is real and in front of them. Edwards has a pretty big step up fight Friday night as well… But the big former NFLer has a lot of business to take care of before talks of Green are real.
Team Green has made a point of getting great work in for these fights, sparring with the best Minnesota has to offer in Raph Butler and Joey Abell. As those who have seen Mr. Green in the past know, he is worth a ticket and it will not be long before people are talking about and seeing him along side some of the nations top heavyweight prospects.
You recently achieved 10 wins, how did it feel?
Green….Getting 10 wins was one of my goals as a pro!! It was an awesome feeling that night. Getting to 10 has made me more hungry and motivated to keep the momentum going.
March 15, you face King Kong, a man who looks to equal you in size. Does his size change the way you prepare?
Green….No, his size doesn’t change too much. I have gotten much stronger these past few months and I feel it will help. Also, I like to bang and box, so I am looking forward to it.
I know your focus is on March 15, has all the Ray Edwards talk been something you spend any time thinking about?
Green….No, I try to stay away from all of that talk. It is a huge distraction to what I am trying to accomplish.
Your fight included, what should fans expect this Friday at Hinckley Grand Casino?
Green….Lots of HEART!! I have worked very hard this past year and I want to show people my dedication to this great sport! Also, there should be lots of good match ups.
