Lethbridge Muay Thai champion going pro

June 3, 2019

Cody Jerome is preparing for his final amateur fight this month in Montana

Cody Jerome isn't afraid of hard work. He's never been knocked out, holds a record of 16-6, and is the IKF amateur middleweight world champion. In the ring, he's known for his grit.

"For fight camps I get up in the morning, train hard for a couple hours in the morning, rest, and then train harder for a couple hours in the evening," say Jerome

June 15 will be his final fight as an amateur—something that's well overdue.

"I could have gone pro quite a long time ago, but the opportunity wasn't there here. Now, thankfully that is coming along." 

Jerome trains at the Progressive Fighting Academy in Lethbridge.
