Undefeated light-heavyweight contender Muhammed “Mo Muscle” DeReese has joined Team Guardian.
The well-rounded 205-pound stud is undefeated through the first five fights of his professional career. The former amateur titlist was previously unbeaten in 11 exhibition outings.
“I’ve known Charles for a while and have had the opportunity to get to know him as a friend,” DeReese says of his relationship with Guardian Sports Group co-founder and CEO Charles McCarthy.
“I asked around with guys who have worked with him and his team, and everyone had nothing but good things to say about him. I’m really excited to begin working with him and continue climbing in my career.”
The excitement, McCarthy agrees with a smile, is mutual.
“I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Muhammed on a personal level, but I’ve known for a long time the kind of potential he has in this sport. He’s an amazing athlete who’s getting better and better with each fight,” McCarthy says.
“Ross Kellin, who I’ve known for years and have a ton of respect for, has done an excellent job in helping to build his career, and I’m excited to be a part of the team.”
