ACCLAIMED BROADCASTER MAURO RANALLO TO PROVIDE NARRATION FOR CAGED
San Jose, California (USA): It was announced today that famed MMA broadcaster Mauro Ranallo will voice the audiobook version of the acclaimed novel Caged. Written by accomplished MMA fighter and award-winning writer Cameron Conaway, Caged has garnered respect and admiration amongst combat sports pundits. Now, Ranallo will help bring the words of Caged to life.
“Mauro Ranallo is a true wordsmith, and his voice is the most distinctive in all of MMA,” stated Conaway. “As an artist allowing my work to be transformed by another artist, it was only natural that I’d choose whoever creatively intrigued me the most.”
“It’s an honor to be involved with a project like Caged,” said Ranallo. “I love the book, and I believe it’s one that needs to be read and heard. I’m excited to get to recording it!”
In addition, it was revealed recently that the Kindle version of “Caged” is available on Amazon.com as a free download today and tomorrow in order to celebrate National Poetry Month. In fact, it is currently the number one sports book in the free category on the website.
Caged is the true story of a young man who overcomes a family background and his own inner torment by learning to channel his frustrations into the physical world of mixed martial arts fighting and the cerebral world of poetry and writing. It teaches the value of personal reflection, how life’s most painful moments can lead to a deeper understanding and appreciation of human nature, and just what is possible when optimism and determination combine to overcome tough odds. Caged shows how the pursuit of two seemingly disparate passions helped a struggling boy blossom into a simple man. The result is a literary and lyrical philosophical journey into the heart and mind of a modern-day warrior.
Mauro Ranallo is a celebrated play-by-play broadcaster who originally made his impact on the MMA world with Pride Fighting Championships. He then held the role for EliteXC, and can now be heard as the voice of Showtime’s Strikeforce programming. In addition to his commentating duties, Mauro also currently hosts “The MMA Show with Mauro Ranallo,” a daily podcast featuring the biggest names in MMA as his guests.
