Tonight at 7 p.m. EST/6 CST, welterweight prospect Vinny “The Lion” O’Brien will be appearing on Beyond Ringside Radio. The Beyond Ringside Radio Show is wrestling, boxing and MMA fans number one source for all of the latest news and interviews that pertain to fighting sports.
Beyond Ringside airs live every Saturday at 11 a.m. EST/10 CST and Sunday at 7 p.m. EST/ CST.
O’Brien will be discussing his TKO win in his pro debut, his upcoming bout on April 9, and his involvement with the nonprofit organization Find A Dream.
“I felt like I went out there in my debut and showed all the doubters that I am the real deal, and showed all my supporters what they have been believing in,” said O’Brien. “I am excited to get back into the ring April 9, and I want to stay busy and keep winning so the whole world becomes familiar with the name Vinny O’Brien.”
O’Brien is quickly becoming a fan favorite to New Jersey boxing fans. In his debut he put on a performance that was reminiscent of a young Arturo Gatti. O’Brien was relentless with his attack and wore down his opponent punch by punch until the fight was ended.
Having garnered much attention on both a national and local level leading up to his professional debut, O’Brien delivered to his fans and erased any questions marks skeptics may have had on his level of skill.
O’Brien trains under the watchful eye of former heavyweight knockout artist Lou Esa at Final Round Boxing in Whippany and works relentlessly to achieve his goal of becoming world champion in the near future.
“Boxing is my life, both in and out of the ring,” said O’Brien. “I want to bring class back to the sport, and I want boxing fans to look at the sport the way they did years ago. I know that boxing will always be a major part of my life.”
When O’Brien is not training, he spends his time teaching boxing to kids, and upon hearing of Find A Dream, he expressed his interest in becoming part of the organization.
“I’m excited to be working with Find A Dream and getting involved with the kids,” said O’Brien. “Growing up I came from where a lot of these kids do, and I want to be able to share my life experiences as well as boxing with them. If I can help just one kid work towards what they want to do in life or change their outlook or path in life, then it will be more than fulfilling. But ultimately I want to help as many kids as possible.”
