WBO welterweight titleholder Timothy Bradley has ushered in a new era of boxing by firing his long-time trainer Joel Diaz and hiring wrestling superstar Virgil.
Bradley held a press conference Wednesday afternoon to officially announce that Virgil has replaced Diaz and is training him for his next fight against Brandon Rios on November 7.
“I met Virgil at Olive Garden a few weeks ago and had the opportunity to share unlimited breadsticks and salad with him,” Bradley said.
Virgil says he’s partnering up with Bradley to take the boxing world by storm.
“Well the first thing you’ve gotta realize is that this right here is the future of boxing. You can call us The FuckMoney Team,” Virgil exclaimed.
Since his professional debut in 2004, Bradley has won five world titles in two weight classes all under Diaz’s tutelage.
In their last fight together, Bradley defeated Jessie Vargas on June 27 to capture the vacant WBO welterweight title.
Boxing insiders have given Bradley a ringing endorsement for hiring Virgil, with one insider calling it a “Godsend for the sport of boxing.”
Virgil is best known for his time in the World Wrestling Federation as the personal bodyguard for the “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase.
More recently, Virgil has been seen at subway stations, flea markets and freeway off-ramps trying to sell 8×10 pictures of himself.
When asked if he is competent enough to train Bradley, Virgil says he has a wealth of knowledge to teach the two-division world champion.
“Tim wanted to learn how to be as great as me and get a lifetime supply of fuckmoney. I have been in the game for so long and now it is time to share my skills with the world,” Virgil said.
“I am all about that fuckmoney.”
