His desire to represent and support his fellow military veterans is rooted deep within, stemming from his personal experiences, family history in the military, and the tragic events of 9/11.

As Herring steps into the ring on November 7, he dedicates his fight to veterans, and specifically to the memory of his late aunt, Lisa Elliby, fellow Marine Joey Canale, and his first professional trainer, Mike Stafford. He seeks to represent and inspire others with his performance, stating, “There’s a lot that I’m fighting for in this event. That’s why it means a lot to me.”
