J’Hon Ingram wishes Rolly Romero KO sparring video wasn’t leaked
By Allan Fox: Light welterweight prospect J’Hon Ingram wishes the Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero KO sparring video hadn’t been leaked earlier this month because it’s something that should have stayed private.
Ingram hopes the leaked video hasn’t hurt his friendship with Rolly because the two had previously helped each other prepare for fights. If Rolly has bad blood because of what happened, it could ruin their friendship.
The 22-year-old Ingram (3-0, 3 KOs) isn’t sure who in the gym leaked the video, but he’s not happy about it, particularly with it going viral and being seen by massive amounts of boxing fans.
Ingram admits that it wasn’t a good look for Rolly (14-1, 12 KOs), considering he’s getting ready for a title shot in April against unbeaten WBA 140-lb champion Alberto Puello (21-0, 10 KOs).
Ingram talks viral leak of Rolly KO video
“His coach kind of game in the gym on some aggressive stuff, and we ended up sparring,” said J’Hon Ingram to Boxing Social about his knockout of Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero during a sparring session earlier this month at the Mayweather Boxing Gym in Las Vegas.
“Rolly, I haven’t talked to him since that video got released, but I would hope that me and him still have a good friendship, relationship because we worked three or four times before that. He’s always been great.
“He’s always taught me stuff. I’ve been helping him for his fights, and he’s been helping me for my fights. I just hate the video got out. I wish the video never got out. I’m not sure who posted the video. I really didn’t want it to get out, especially that he had a fight coming up, especially a title fight. That’s not a good look,” Ingram said.
Bad for Rolly, good for Ingram
“It was bad on his part, good on my part type thing,” continued Ingram. “I wish the video had never got out. Things always happen in the gym. There are days where people get the best of me, and I get the best of them. That’s just what happens in the gym. I like to keep sparring in the gym.
“Everyone that knows me knows that I don’t post not sparring videos. It might have been once or twice I posted something, and that was when the person came at me,” said Ingram.
