Trap Gambino is ready to make waves in the super-heavyweight division, starting with a win over his next opponent, Marquis Faith.
Las Vegas’s own, Gambino was expected to make his highly anticipated Amateur MMA debut against Faith at RIZE Fighting Championship earlier this year in April, however COVID-19 made it impossible for the fight to be held at that time. Gambino believes the fight will happen in the fall, hopefully with fans in attendance to watch the two heavy hitters collide.
“I control every little aspect of this fight, when the fight is going to happen pretty much. If I really wanted the fight to happen by now, I could have made it happen. I got some pull somehow, I’m the main event in this sh*t. He’s (Faith) walking by my line.”
The Ohio-native gave us his insight into how the fight would play out, showing us his ‘Mystic Mac’ prediction.
“Domination.” Gambino said. “I feel like, he doesn’t know what the f*ck is coming. He’s not gonna have enough energy for me. He doesn’t work with the same guys I work with.”
“I hear these guys all the time. (Super) heavyweights hit me up all the time and they tell me they want to fight me, because it’s hard for them to find super heavyweight fights apparently. Everybody and their mom wants to fight me at super heavyweight.”
Gambino, training at Silver Wolf/Asylum Fight Team in the fight capitol of the world, is unfazed at the attention and callouts from other fighters, as he trains with a tough pack already, with the likes of Emaun Greagor and hitting pads with Francis Ngannou’s famed coach, Dewey Cooper.
“In Vegas, it’s different man, I work with monsters. Everybody I’ve worked with is a monster. Marquis isn’t a monster, Marquis is a mouse!”
Going into his first fight under the bright lights, ‘The Don of Las Vegas’ believes fellow super-heavyweights are calling him out to collect the marketable hype that is behind the successful actor.
“They think I got the CM Punk vibe to me, where my skills might not be up to the hype and if they beat me… I’m a name, they get a lot of f*cking hype. Even though I’ve never had a fight behind me, I’ve lot of people behind me that are important, that are watching this sh*t.”
“I’m ready to go. I’m ready to answer all of these f*cking questions. After this fight, a lot of less super heavyweights will want to fight me.”
Trap Gambino is focused on proving more people wrong, just like he has been doing for his whole life, when he takes on Marquis Faith in the main event of RIZE Fighting Championship (Date/Location: TBD).
