Portland, OR - On Saturday, June 9th at Rumble 98, the FCFF's 125-pound Champion, Keaneo Moyer will return to the slammer to face David Converse, who is the FCFF's past Flyweight Champion and Bantamweight Champion. Fireworks went off at the post-fight press conference in April between these two; both of these fighters were on the Rumble 97 fight card. Keaneo, fought at Rumble 97 against the FCFF's 135LB Champ - attempting to hold two divisions titles simultaneously. Converse, battled Abdul Kamara (who is a former FCFF 145lb Champ) at Rumble 97 on the undercard - after a two year hiatus from competition.
Directly following Rumble 97, at the post-fight press conference, Converse called out Moyer and set the stage for an epic Current Vs. Former Flyweight Champion Main Event for Rumble @ The Roseland 98 onSaturday, June 9th.
This duo hasn't slowed down and during the Rumble 98 press conference, they had a lot to say to each other, about their futures, and their fight predictions.
Pulled from the Rumble 98 Press Conference GoLive stream:
Keaneo Moyer (KM): David hasn't fought in this weigh class for two years. I think it will be a lot harder for him, doing this fight, than me... I've been scheduled for twelve fights in the last two years, he's been off.
David Converse (DC): He's in my weight class. I've never lost a 125-pound fight before. This is my weight class, that is why I am looking at him.
KM: I don't see how this is your weight class, when you haven't fought in the weight class for two years... You just fought at 145..and then your last two fights was at 135... so how is this your weight class?
DC: He's hasn't put his time in yet... He keeps talking about how he's so great... [interrupted by Moyer]
KM: By the time I have 25 fights, the whole entire world is going to know me. I'm going to be a world champion.
