ProMMAnow.com (www.prommanow.com) reporter and Fisttacuff Radio host Anton Skoro recently caught up with Las Vegas fighter Jimmy “Rabbit” Jones (3-0) who took a few moments during his break from training at Xtreme Couture with teammate Ryan Couture and others to talk about his upcoming fights. — Yes, fights, plural.
Jones takes on undefeated Knuckleheadz fighter Chris “The Real Deal” Beal (3-0) this Friday, Jan. 13, at “BAMMA USA: BadBeat 4″ at the Commerce Casino in Commerce, Calif. Following that, Jones will step right back in the cage on Feb. 16 when he takes on Brazilian fighter Joao Victor (2-0) at Superior Cage Combat 4 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
As a former Tuff-N-Uff bantamweight champion who cut his teeth inside the local Las Vegas promotion as an amateur, the 25-year-old Jones made his pro debut in Nov. 2010, scoring an 11-second knockout of Scott Brommage (3-8) in King of the Cage.
Jones returned to action in May of last year for his second pro bout, winning a unanimous decision over Walter Patterson (7-4) at Superior Cage Combat 1 in Las Vegas. Jones had his third and most recent pro bout on the second Superior Cage Combat card in August, winning a second round TKO over Hulk Hogan’s nephew, David Bollea (3-1), and giving “The Ultimate Male” his first pro loss.
