It seems like just the other day when I first crossed paths with upstart junior welterweight hopeful Maurice “Mighty Mo” Hooker out in Las Vegas.
A native of Dallas, Tex., Hooker was around Las Vegas in late 2013, during a brief stint in the city with his trainer and former fighter Vince Parra. And although his time in the city was short, what I was able to see from the young fighter in that time left an impression upon me that hasn’t been forgotten.
