In case you haven’t heard, Kenny Florian and his longtime trainer Mark Dellagrotte of Sityodtong in Boston have parted ways.
“There are no hard feelings. Me and Kenny have been good friends for a long, long time. We did good thing together. I think this is a good decision for both of us.
“I think he is going to do well, I think the people he is going with are some of the best in the world. It wasn’t a bad break or anything like that, it was just a mutual decision we made in order for us both to move forward. It was necessary for Kenny to move forward with his career and me to move forward as a coach.”
Dellagrotte confirmed there was a power struggle over Florian’s training camps between himself and Kenny’s brother, Keith.
Firas Zahabi wouldn’t confirm it as official in his interview with Fanhouse’s Ariel Helwani above, but Kenny is believed to be the latest addition to Tristar Gym’s stable of fighters.
