Hollywood, FL – Five straight wins in the cage for Cody Law and the Bellator featherweight is ready to go from prospect to contender for the 145 title.
Law (5-0) is targeting Spring 2022 for his next bout and he wants a fight that will get him to a title shot.
“Whoever puts me closer to the belt. Give me somebody, I’ll beat them and move forward.”
At 26-years-old Law believes he’s just getting started and sees himself as the future of the featherweight division.
“I have pretty lofty goals. I see myself as the future. I don’t feel like I’m that young. That’s why I’m fighting so often because I want to get a bunch of wins under my belt while I can and I’m already 26. I have a lot of stuff I want to accomplish by 30. So, gotta move fast, you know.”
A product of American Top Team in Coconut Creek, FL, Law had plenty of support in the stands and a short drive to work.
“It’s amazing I’ve got a lot of friends and family here. As soon as I’m done with this I’m going to shower, hang out with everybody and I get to go sleep in my own bed tonight. So it’s pretty awesome.”
Law had 5 amateur fights before going pro and he spoke on the importance of those bouts.
“Yeah I tell people all the time. I’m so glad I did amateurs. My coaches are here standing in the room and they’re two of the guys who kind of made me do amateurs. Like any young kid just finishing nationals I was ready to go pro because that’s where it’s at. And they told me no and thank God I went amateur you know. 5 amateur fights and two amateur boxings really made me comfortable. My first pro fight wasn’t just getting my feet wet I was already, I had already built up to it. I’m very happy I did it.”
