Though James is such a busy man preparing for his fight, EURweb associate, LaCora Stephens, caught up with “The Beast” at Savant Young’s Fight Academy in Pasadena.

(Scroll down to watch the interview.)

James and LaCora discussed his past as a juvenile delinquent and overcoming stereotypes by creating his own program for troubled youth. When asked about his inspirations, he proudly named Muhammad Ali.

“In every aspect, he’s a pioneer in the boxing game,” Wilsen said.  “He fought during a time of segregation where it shouldn’t have happened, yet he defeated all the odds.”

update - james the beast wilsonWhen LaCora mentioned current legends in the field, The Beast had a lot to say.  He mentioned that, “John ‘Bones’ Jones needs a rematch to defend his title because he didn’t dominate the match” while, “Anderson Silva is the best in his weight class period.” He claims to be a top contender to one day fight in the octagon.  This isn’t far fetched because the most respected referee of the UFC, Herb Dean, vouched for him. Experienced fighter and Fight Academy owner Savant Young also cosigned by stating, “He’s explosive, loyal, yet humble. He’s going places.”

This is a legend in the making.  Don’t miss the making of a star.  Support James “The Beast” Wilson by attending the fight or tuning in via DirectTV. Follow him on twitter @JamesWilsonMMA.
