Cestus Management Press Release:
Mike Hall and Ray McCline will be taking over the training of undefeated junior welterweight "Mighty" Mike Arnaoutis. Hall has been training fighters in his Pleasantville, New Jersey gym since 1969. He worked under the legendary Eddie Futch for five years, during which time he assisted in the training of Riddick Bowe and Michael Spinks. Hall also worked with such championship caliber as Dwight Qawi, Ray Mercer and Virgil Hill.
Hall offered comment on his newest charge, "When I see a kid fight that has the ability to go all the way, it interests me. The kid knows how to fight, but there are adjustments he needs to make.
"I teach boxing as a science," said Hall. "There are times when you have to box, there are times when you can go ahead and punch. But if you know how to do both, you can adapt to any opponent. That's what a Champion needs to do."
Hall's assistant and protege McCline had some words as well.
"Mike Michael and Cestus Management have done a great job getting 'Mighty' Mike to this point in his career," said McCline. "Mike Hall and I are the missing ingredients. Together, we will take this kid all the way."
Said advisor Mike Michael, "'Mighty' Mike is in Greece right now, but we've been in regular contact and he is looking forward to coming back and doing some serious training."
