While upcoming middleweight prospect Quatavious Cash may not have had an official fight in 2015, his story was certainly one worth covering.
Cash, 23, carries an 8-0 record with 5 knockouts and anyone inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club who has seen him spar or train can attest to his abilities. The tall and rangy Atlanta native fights with poise, determination, and grit, and he is chomping at the bit to get his career kick-started in 2016.
Cash trains under the guidance of former light heavyweight champion Eddie Mustafa Muhammad and admits it was tough watching his brethren stay active this past year as he waits his turn.
“It was rough not being able to fight and seeing everybody else fight,” Cash told Hustle Boss recently. “And I ended up losing my mother in October and that was rough too. I was depressed for part of the year but being in training camps and being around Eddie and the rest of the Money Team, it made it so much better.”
Cash has sparred countless names in the gym, from WBC super middleweight world champion Badou Jack, J’Leon Love, Thomas Hill, Andrew Tabiti, Ronald Gavril, Lanell Bellows, and LaDarius Miller, amongst others, and took great joy in seeing their careers flourish.
“It’s motivating, because some of these guys I remember before they got on,” Cash revealed. “I’ve been following J’Leon Love for a long time, and Badou Jack. So just to see where they came in such a short amount of time, it’s inspiring.”
What continues to keep Cash focused is his bond with Muhammad, who is like family at this point.
“It’s like a dream come true,” Cash stated. “Eddie is kind of like a father figure to me. He gives me advice in and out of the ring. He’s somebody I can call anytime, anything I need; he has my back. He says he believes in me and that I’ll be a world champion if I keep listening to him.”
