"I just take it for a ride," he said. "I don’t look much in the future except for the next fight. I’m at the point that I don’t have to prove anything. I’m just looking to have fun."

McGrath’s been working with Bryant for the last six months. Bryant, 38, has had a pro career and is looking to get back into it.

"It’s been a couple of years now, and I’m looking forward to getting back into the ring," Bryant said. "I just do it because I love the sport."

Bryant is impressed with McGrath.

"He’s awesome. I’m lucky I didn’t fight him when I was an amateur," Bryant said. "He works and he gives your 100 percent."

Also fighting on Saturday will be Antwan Phillips, King of Jacksonville heavyweight title holder, who is a Marine at Cherry Point.

Luis Velveta, a Premier Martial Arts superheavyweight, will be fighting in the 350-pound weight class.
