Roberson’s coach Brian Wright, head trainer at Killer B Combat Sports Academy in New Jersey, believes his fighter to be 'one to watch'.
“We know what we have got here with Karl. We know what kind of athlete he is and when there is an opportunity we are like ‘hey, yeah, we will take that’,” he says.
“Karl is a freak, at 24 years old and with so few fights he is taking on much more experienced opponents and doing well. It makes me laugh because we say it all the time in the gym, 'Who is Karl Roberson?' - his skill level is so far beyond his level of profile, he’s going to go places. We know it, we’re just in the process of watching that happen.”
“Karl also wants to fight in the UFC at some point so that is definitely somewhere we want to be in the future, depending how things go with GLORY. We’re looking for the big opportunities, wherever they are.”
