When Dominick Guinn (26-4-1, 18 KOs) defeated Michael Grant by way of seventh round TKO in 2003, expectations were high for him.
Since then, Guinn has gone 4-4-1; however, to his credit, Guinn has been fighting the best competition in the heavyweight division. His losses came against opponents who had combined career records of 145-9-2. One of those fighters, Sergei Liakhovich, went on to become a world champion and another, James Toney, had just won the WBA title and been stripped for steroid use.
Guinn will look to get back on the winning track on Saturday, December 9, as he battles Zack Page on the undercard of Jermain Taylor vs. Kassim Ouma mega-fight at the Alltel Arena in North Little Rock, in his home state of Arkansas.
Guinn spoke with FightNews about the excitement of fighting in front of his home fans again; the tough competition he has fought in his losses, and his new philosophy on how he will fight from now on. (more)
