Cody Eisner’s fight at DuBurns Arena scheduled for May 29 has been cancelled.
Fallston’s golden-boy boxer, Cody Eisner has been busy these days. Not only is he training to take to the ring next Friday (May 29, DuBurns Arena) but he’s also preparing for his first serious road trip as a boxer— the National Golden Gloves in Las Vegas.
Aside from the assault he’s launching on his body and mind to prepare (new trainer, new routines and a nutritionist), Cody has been campaigning. Sort of. Recently, he was featured in the Press Box online, check out that article here. Plus he’s been doing some meet and greets with perspective sponsors while he ratchets up his game for the next level.
First things first: last time these two (above) tangoed, it seemed a no-brainer and Cody came out victorious. At the time, however, there were grumblings from the opposition. So, this battle could prove to be an interesting match-up. But even if this cat does have a taste for some Eisner, Cody remains dogged:
“He did have reach and height over me. But I didn’t respect his power. He couldn’t crack the side of an eggshell. And you can say that, too! I’m excited for this fight because I want to knock him out.”
While the Junior Olympics is still in Cody’s sights (2010), his team decided the National Golden Gloves in Las Vegas was a better fit. It will super-size his boxing experience. If you recall, Cody made no excuses in his loss for the Maryland Golden Gloves. But he’s ranked number 2 in the state and can’t wait to represent.
Bobby McGruder helps organize the tournament and said this will be a good chance for Cody. “When a kid goes to a tournament out of state, they gain so much experience. He’ll be around the best and he’ll see what the best is all about. You learn so much.”
With this venue there are three rings going at all times and there’s a lot of bouts packed into three days, “he’ll come back with 20-plus fights experience,” said McGruder.
It will be a grueling road that will test this 16-year old’s resolve. It will push him to his limit like never before. But he’s not looking at it like that. He seems more pumped than anything.
“To be representing Maryland is a big adrenaline rush. It’s going to give me a national rank and I’m going to have a lot more experience. Of course, I want to go there and win but if I don’t win it’s going to be okay. Its about experience.”
That is Cody’s attitude: taking it all in stride while working boldly to achieve his goals, one egg at a time.
To help defer costs for Cody’s training, travel and growing team, there is a bull-roast scheduled for Saturday, June 27. This event has approximately 50 tickets left so call Andy Eisner at 443-617-3115 for more information NOW.
