Five time world boxing champion Antonio “Magic Man” Tarver is no stranger to overcoming the odds. The 44-year-old Orlando, Florida native who shocked the world with his one punch knockout of the great Roy Jones Jr. is poised to prove doubters wrong and make his return to the ring. “This has been a long tough year for me being away from the sport of boxing. Iʼve learned a lot about myself and others”, said Tarver. “Iʼm putting the cruiserweight and light heavyweight divisions on notice that “The Magic Man” is back and Iʼm here to claim whatʼs rightfully mine.” Tarver (29-6 20 KOs), who starred in the blockbuster film Rocky Balboa, opened up the possibility of his next fight being overseas. “My passport stays ready, and Iʼm never afraid to travel to hand out an ass kicking to anyone. Danny Green knows that which is why he refuses to be 50 feet from me now. Any champion overseas can get it. All these guys with belts across the pond can get it. Marco Huck can get it. Don King has a Cruiserweight Champion now (Guillermo Jones), Krzysztof Wlodarczyk is holding on to the (WBC) green belt and he can get it too. I will be back this August and more than likely it will be overseas so the fight game better take notice that Antonio Tarver is back! Once I take care of business at cruiserweight, Iʼm coming for Bernard Hopkins and Iʼm coming to GET WHATʼS MINE!”
