James Kirkland Considers Reuniting With Ann Wolfe In 2021

James Kirkland isn’t eyeing retirement but he could bring Ann Wolfe back to his corner.

Kirkland competed just before the close of 2020. He shared the ring with Juan Macias Montiel in a bout that didn’t last long. Kirkland was knocked out in the first round.

Kirkland will turn 37 in March and having suffered the second first-round knockout loss of his career, many are wondering how much the “Mandingo Warrior” has left in the tank.

Kirkland plans to keep pushing forward. In a chat with Curran Bhatia, Kirkland said it’s possible that he and Hall of Fame elect Ann Wolfe can work together again (via Bad Left Hook).

“It’s crazy because I had so many people come to me with that initial question and I recently spoke with her and everything was like — it’s like a brother and sister when you don’t see each other a long time…It’s always a plus when it comes to me and Ann, there’s never a dull moment.

“I’m always loving the class and just understanding that she has. It’s like she’s my left side, I’m her right side. So it’s always like if I ain’t thinking one way, she’s thinking another…it’s like two peas in a pod, picture perfect. She’s working on things, I’m working on things, but you never know how things work, man. I definitely looking forward to talking with her and trying to see what we can do to move forward.”

Following his 2015 knockout loss to Canelo Alvarez, Kirkland was out of action for over four years. He had a successful return, stopping Colby Courter via first-round TKO. In his next outing, he defeated Jas Phipps by way of second-round TKO. He’s hoping to get back on track after his quick loss to Montiel.
