Darwin Price stayed true to his jab against Javontae Starks, and in return it stayed true to him.
An extended family connection has raised the stakes for an already intense and intriguing showdown between Darwin Price and Javontae Starks.
Darwin Price probably doesn’t require any external motivation to put in the extra gym work required to become a championship-caliber fighter. But if the unbeaten 140-pound prospect did need such motivation, all he’d have to do is peer over his shoulder.
Javontae Starks had a bad day at the office in his last fight, and it resulted in his first professional loss. The defeat left a bitter taste in Starks’ mouth, if only because he’s certain the result would’ve been different had he put forth a little extra pre-fight effort.
There's no better way for a young prospect on the rise to showcase his skills and boost his profile than to fight in a main event on live national television. Darwin Price and Javontae Starks will soon get such an opportunity.
