American Top Team Head Boxing Coach and 1976 Olympic Gold Medal winner Howard Davis Jr. helps train some of the best mixed martial arts fighters in the world. He has been with American Top Team since its inception about six years ago in Coconut Creek, Florida.
Davis works on a regular basis with such fighters as the WEC’s Featherweight Champion Mike Brown and the UFC’s number one welterweight contender Thiago Alves. One of the sport’s greatest strikers of all-time Chuck Liddell even sought the help of Davis prior to his most recent fight against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 97 (although too little too late).
After being submerged in the sport and falling in love with MMA and it’s fighters, Howard Davis Jr. has now decided to go into the MMA promotion business with “Fight Time Promotions, LLC.” The promotion will debut fall 2009 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with their first fight card entitled “USA vs. Brazil.”
