It’s been well over a year since welterweight prospect Joseph Elegele’s last match.

Facing off with Javier Molina inside of The Hangar in Costa Mesa, Calif. in March of 2013, Elegele dropped a competitive unanimous decision after eight rounds of action.

Scores reading 78-72 and 77-75 twice may have told the tale of a good scrap, but the tallies did little to showcase just how disappointing of an evening that was for Elegele.

The following months have certainly been a test of the Melbourne, Fl. native’s resolve and Elegele admits that sometimes his belief has wavered.
