Press Release: December 28, 2021 By Brandon Countee – (Detroit, Michigan) Light Heavyweight and
Detroit Michigan native James Ballard looks to get his career back on track in
2022. After 3 straight losses, the fighter felt that 2022 needed to be his
crossroad year in boxing. “To be honest I was not prepared like I needed to be
in my last 2 fights, and you could see it. I was not focused like I should have
been, and I promised myself 2022 would be much better. To be honest my record
of 10 and 4 is more a reflection of not being dedicated fully more than my actual
potential limits. I am more focused and dedicated, got a new trainer and
everything.” Ballard states. He is now aligned with former boxer and trainer
Ray Darden who looks to help bring out the best in Ballard.

“James has talent, and
it is a shame that he got unfocused because that can really mess up a fighter's
career. My plan is really getting him back on track and to get some quality
wins for 2022 and going forward.” states his new trainer, Ray Darden.
Ballard looks to get
opportunities to upset the apple cart for contenders at 175. “Boxing is the one
sport where one fight can make a star and save a career.”
