Lamont Roach Jr. Reps Redskins At Madison Square Garden Win

You might be familiar with Lamont Roach Jr. at this point.

He's part of the NoXCuses Boxing Club, based in Washngton, D.C., and, as such, is a big Redskins fan.

He and his teammates visited Redskins Park during the summer and spent a day in Richmond, Va., for Training Camp in August. Their visit and story are chronicled here.

Roach is a rising star and moving up the ranks from the "prospect class" to the "contender" class. This summer he promised to wear a Redskins logo in his next big match, and on Oct. 17, he came through at Madison Square Garden, wearing burgundy shorts and a robe with one.

He remained undefeated (9-0, 3 KO's) after defeating Mexican Jose Bustos in a six-round decision.

"Bustos came to fight," Roach said afterward. "He was not backing down throughout the fight but I did not feel threatened by him. I feel like I dominated the fight and was giving him my all. I wanted to end the fight impressively via knock out but he has a strong jaw. This is my last six-rounder and will move up to eight rounds in my next fight, very excited to go there."

Roach even snagged a picture with former tight end Chris Cooley afterward. I'm sure that was just as good as winning.
