It had been a while since we’ve been in the trenches with top-flight junior welterweight prospect Semajay Thomas.
The Chicago native, now 6-0 with 4 knockouts as a professional, has a great pedigree behind him no matter how you cut it. One of Thomas’ mentors in his amateur days was and still is Nate Jones, the former heavyweight contender who captured bronze in the 1996 Olympics and now stands as one of the game’s emerging young trainers.
