Crunch Time for Tony Ferguson
It is no secret that Tony Ferguson is aging. Now 37, the fighter is rapidly approaching the end of his career. However, he will look for one last title shot before his retirement.
In order to do that, he needs to recover from his last two losses. Ferguson has joined up with legendary boxing trainer Freddie Roach and UFC legend, Georges St- Pierre. The two are capable of providing invaluable guidance to any fighter.
Ferguson is currently ranking No. 5 in the lightweight division. If he can string a few wins together, he could be in for a shot at the title. Recognized as one of the best in the division, he is more than capable of making it happen.
Although there is talk of Tony losing his edge, he is well capable of turning the tide at any given time. Fans will be praying for the best version of Tony at the Toyota Center in Houston on May 15.
