Bobby Jordan Jr has a wife, kids, house, and a career. For most this is too much to juggle and risk on a professional career as a boxer, but for Jr. There is a drive to be the best that pushes him through long days of work and training as he pursues his dream. I caught up with him the week before his first shot at a tittle belt. His attitude and motivation won me over and it was my goal for the viewer to be drawn in the same way I was over the course of the week.
He unfortunatly lost the fight in by unanamous decision after going all 8 rounds, but hopes to get a rematch in Norfolk.
I produced, shot, wrote, and edited this story for WAVY-TV 10 in Portsmouth, VA with Ahmed Fareed reporting.
