Experienced veteran Rob Calloway (67-7, 55 KOs) of St. Joseph, MO, ranked #11 by the WBO, is eager to gain a world title shot. He has been in the ring with the likes of former two-time heavyweight champ Hasim Rahman and Jameel McCline and in August of last year he upset heavyweight Terry Smith on ESPN2 Friday Night Fights. Juan Carlos Robles (9-0, 5 KOs) of Waynesboro, VA is a hungry young fighter who is no stranger to taking on tough veteran fighters. He plans on taking advantage of this opportunity for a shot at a world ranking.
