SHOBOX – The New Generation Friday – The Casino Del Sol in Tucson, Arizona plays host to “ShoBox: The New Generation” this Friday night, January 22nd. The official weigh-ins took place Thursday afternoon, with all fighters in the main events on weight and ready to go.
Two vacant WBA North American titles are on the line as Middleweights Rob Brant (18-0) and Decarlo Perez (15-3-1) meet in a ten round bout. Brant is considered a potential future title contender. One observer of the Minneapolis boxing scene states “the people that handle Brant have been high on him for a while, and they have been handling him carefully. This is his year to step up”. This will be Brant’s third appearance on Showtime.
The other 10 round bout for a WBA belt is at Heavyweight, where undefeated (15-0-1) Jarrell Miller takes on Donovan Dennis (12-2). Miller is a massive heavyweight, weighing near 280 lbs usually, while Dennis is a compact fighter who comes in weighing about 220 usually. Look for a highly entertaining fight of contrasts. With the heavyweight division wide open here at the start of 2016, both men need a win to begin establishing themselves.
The live card features seven bouts in all, and the Demond Brock (13-3) vs Samuel Teah (7-1) Lightweight bout is for Brock’s WBC United States title.
The “ShoBox: The New Generation” program was developed by Showtime to feature up and coming talents in the world of boxing. The complete card and results from today´s weigh-ins appear below.
