After becoming one of J’Leon’s sponsors, Armadale Vodka’s team was invited to
the world famous Mayweather Boxing Gym. We arrived to see that Mayweather had made a shrine on wheels, a custom Mayweather Promotions tour bus. J’Leon was outside taking pictures with fans and signing autographs.

After taking some initial pictures of him, we went inside as he got dressed for one of his last training sessions. He shared with us that Marco Periban, was large and hits hard, but he had a plan to win with quickness and accuracy. Watching him train you could see why he’s one of the world’s top athletes. But he has earned all of his accolades through overcoming the rough streets of Inkster, a suburb of Detroit, to losing his brother last year, who leaves 10 kids fatherless.

J’leon Love has all of the benefits of being promoted by Mayweather Promotions and training at the world famous Mayweather Boxing Gym, but never takes it for granted. That’s not to say J’Leon hasn’t had his supporters as he rises to be one of the biggest names in middleweight boxing. Armadale and J’Leon are working on a long term sponsorship deal, which will become a partner in the promotions and be a primary sponsor for his upcoming fight on September 14, 2014, where its suspected he will be fighting for the WBC belt.

These things are what make Love continue to work hard to become one of boxing’s elite. During his fight, on May 3, 2014, he overcame a 5th round knockdown to defeat Marco Antonio Periban by a 10 round unanimous decision, to capture the WBA International super middleweight title on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
