Lynchburg Boxer Scott Sigmon Training for Return
Lynchburg - Lynchburg boxer Scott Sigmon is returning to the ring April 6th in Central Virginia.
Sigmon will fight in the main event on the Saturday night card at the Boonsboro Ruritan Club. It will be the 25-year-old's first bout since losing to former middleweight champ Kelly Pavlik last June.
Five weeks after that fight, Sigmon underwent shoulder surgery to repair tears to his labrum, rotator cuff and biceps tendon. Then came more than four months of physical therapy which Sigmon says was tough.
He admits he may be coming back too soon, but he's been training hard and is eager to give it a shot.Scott "Cujo" Sigmon - 22-4, 12 KOs AS A PRO, said "I haven't been quite as explosive, but I'm really focusing on head movement and footwork. You know right now honestly I feel like a shell of myself but I fully intend over the next six, seven weeks to come back into full stride and be ready to perform on April 6th."
Sigmon's fight will be one of seven or eight bouts on the April 6th card. Doors open at 5:30, boxing begins at 6:30 at the Boonsboro Ruritan Club.
