Give Flint native Dion Savage a call on his cell phone and you will hear him claim to be the “Future Champ” on his voicemail. Get a text message from him and he will remind you that he’s going to be the “Future Champ.” This is because he truly believes that he will rise up in the boxing ranks and become the Super Middleweight Champ.

In the midst of his training, Savage let us in on his preparation for his upcoming fight tomorrow on the underdcard of Mayweather-Marquez. Savage will put his undefeated record (5-0, 3 knockouts) on the line against Loren Myers (7-6, 2 KOs ).

Although his six-round fight is unlikely to be nationally televised on HBO PPV, he still is training just as if this is his biggest opportunity to date. Here is what he had to say:

Well right now, I’m going six rounds through the bag non-stop, no break. To build my stamina and my conditioning up because I’m fighting six rounds. I’m just jump roping and maintaining my weight right now and eating good and running around at like 11 o’clock at night. I will do like 6 miles and then hit some hard wind sprints after that because I want to be properly prepared. Proper preparation prevents poor performance, so when you properly prepared then you will have a good performance. This is a big undercard for me so I gotta go out here and give it all I got!

Right now what’s going through my mind is just being the best super middleweight out there and just doing it for all of the people that have been suffering and trying to get up outta the ghetto. I’m just trying to do it all for them and we gon do this together and get my father out of prison that’s been incarcerated for something that he didn’t do. So that’s what’s really on my mind and that’s what’s been pushing me and driving me.

The fight is at the MGM Grand so I’m fenna go out here and do it and perform and go all out! I aint gon hold back so I’m gon go all out.

I believe in my heart that the fight is not gonna go the distance because … shoot, I’m ready to die in there. I came too far to lose so I’m ready to go all out and if he aint ready to go all out then he gon lose and he gon get knocked out and that’s gon be the results.

His record is seven wins and six losses so he got 13 fights but even though he got them losses, that still don’t matter because you still don’t underestimate no fighter because that’s still a name.Well right now, Im going six rounds through the bag non-stop, no break.
