Andrew Ball, is currently is looking to get his “feet back on the winning road.” In 2015 Ball suffered a couple of losses, but prior to that he was on a ten fight win streak that spanned over three years.
Just from speaking with Ball for a few minutes one can tell there is more behind his motivation than overcoming these losses. Growing up, Ball wasn’t very athletic and didn’t have the grades or discipline to be on a team, but he did get into a few street fights. Shortly after high school he started training at Neligia’s Martial Arts where he instantly became hooked. Fast-forward eight years; Andrew holds a 16-4 record in kickboxing and 1-0 in MMA. These twenty kickboxing bouts are in all different styles ranging from Muay Thai, low-kicks to Glory rules.

Interview by Randy Jean
A man with grit and passion comes before you today. Andrew Ball, kickboxing up and coming star sits with me to discuss his life of turmoil to success, mentor and trainer Louis Neglia and his thoughts on the latest installment of Combat at the Capitale, which will stream live on GFL.tv from New York City on Friday, September 11.
Randy Jean: I read an article in Newsday which described your up bringing and life on the streets. Fighting was basically all you knew growing up. Am I right?
Andrew Ball: Yup, pretty much. I used to fight a lot. I would fight older kids, to even kids my own age. It was something that I would do legit every week.
RJ: In the past you’ve credited Lou Neglia for the success that’s came your way. How has your relationship with Neglia changed from when you first met him?
AB: He’s like a father to me. When I first met him he inserted great advice into my head to ensure that I’d stay out of trouble.
RJ: Ok, so what’s the atmosphere like training under the tutelage of Lou Neglia and his martial arts school?
AB: He’s very intense. He’s very old school in the sense where he plays no games. He doesn’t accept any excuses so you have to give him 100%. Anything less and you’re out.
RJ: Wow, so he’s basically a no nonsense kind of guy!
AB: Very much no nonsense. He’s got a reputation for that and I’ll be the first to tell you that it’s absolutely true.
RJ: “Combat at the Capitale 37″ takes place next month. Unfortunately you suffered an injury while training for your bout against Jordan Turner. How hard is it for you going into the Capitale knowing you won’t be able to help your teammate Andrea DeAngelo capture a win?
AB: Well, I’m still going to help her out in any way that I can. I’m still going to do some light training with her; while at the same time I’ll always be in her corner mentally. I’m always telling her what she needs to hear and she continues to credit me for establishing a tough mentally that every fighter needs to have into her.
RJ: With your injury keeping you within the sidelines, what is your mindset right now?
AB: You know this injury is only going to allow for me get even better. So in that sense he’s actually very unlucky. I’ve taken fights where I should have forfeited because I was injured but I did them anyways. So this time I’m going to be smart and take care of myself.
Rj: Piggybacking off what you said about Andrea DeAngelo, how well do you think her performance will be as she goes up against Theodora Pistiolis?
AB: I think this was the fight that she was waiting for. She took a little break to get her head and body together, but now she’s at 100% and ready to go. I believe she’ll represent team USA to the fullest and give it a good show.
RJ: Sports are usually at forefront when it comes to easing our mind through tragedy. How does it feel to know that Combat at the Capitale will have that same influence on some Americans as we remember those who died on 9/11?
AB: I think it’s a great opportunity for some New Yorkers to show their patriotism and represent New York in a way that it should be. I’m disappointed that I can’t do that but, regardless, whenever I fight, I fight for New York. Our team will be representing New York that night and although I won’t be fighting, DeAngelo will be. No doubt will team Neglia represent New York at the Capitale.
Hard hitting MMA action returns to GFL as Lou Neglia and Dead Serious MMA Promotions LLC present “MMA at Club Pure” on Saturday, November 23 from South Amboy, New Jersey in an event that promises to bring together a host of blue chip prospects from the East Coast. Neglia and Dead Serious MMA Promotions are planning to blow the roof off by presenting a scheduled 14-bout card that is sure to have plenty of knockouts and submissions.
In the main event, Michael Elshamy (4-0) battles Karl Roberson (2-0) in a battle of undefeated prospects in the heavyweight division. Elshamy is built like a tank and very stocky who poses a threat to any rising heavyweight because of his strong grappling. Elshamy is also a solid wrestler and can grind down opponents over the course of a full fight. Elshamy brings a strong top game as well as some slick submissions on the canvas. Roberson will be the bigger fighter in the cage and will be hard to get to the mat and overpower as Elshamy is accustomed to. Roberson packs dynamite in both hands and also has solid cardio for a big man. Look for these two to bang from the opening bell and if the fight ends up on the mat it could be a chess match with Elshamy’s grappling versus Roberson’s sheer strength looking to power through anything Elshamy tries. Don’t blink!
In other action, Alfred Jones (3-0) fights Joshua Armstrong (4-3) in a shootout at featherweight. Jones has never been to a decision as he has stopped all 3 of his previous opponents inside of two rounds. Jones has KO power in both hands and can change the momentum of a fight with one punch. Jones is very active in the standup and likes to be the aggressor and put his opponent on the defensive right from the beginning. Armstrong brings an experience advantage into the cage and is a fan favorite as only 1 of his 7 fights have ever gone to decision. Armstrong is well-rounded and can end the fight with a knockout or submission so this fight is a dangerous fight for both athletes. This could be fight of the night.
East Coast MMA is ready to deliver again! Be sure to catch all of the action, LIVE on November 23 as Lou Neglia and Dead Serious MMA Promotions LLC present “MMA at Club Pure” exclusively at GFL.tv.
