No matter what curveballs the sport of boxing throws him, super middleweight contender Denis “Momma’s Boy” Douglin continues to keep high hopes.

The last time we caught Douglin inside of the boxing ring fighting professionally, he was stopped in the tenth round by rising prospect David Benavidez. That bout saw Douglin’s record move to 20-5 with 13 knockouts, yet he is still as upbeat as ever.

Photographer/videographer 1Tarrell recently caught up with Douglin inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, as he could be seen putting in some work with his mother and trainer Saphya.

“We’re taking over boxing,” Douglin exclaimed after training. “2017 is going to be our year, I promise.”

Check the video below for a closer look at Douglin’s workout.
