This Friday, DiBella Entertainment and Tony Holden Productions in association with Roc Nation Sports present an exciting ShoBox: The New Generation quadrupleheader, live on SHOWTIME (10pm ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast) from Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, OK.
“I am thrilled to bring another great card back to the beautiful Buffalo Run Casino, which is the home of Trey Lippe Morrison and has become a second home for Ivan Baranchyk,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “This is yet another sensational ShoBox card and I am proud to promote it as part of one of boxing’s finest series.”
Light heavyweight Radivoje “Hot Rod” Kalajdzic (21-1, 14 KOs), a 6-foot-2 native of Bosnia and Herzegovina, now based out of St. Petersburg, FL, and unbeaten southpaw “Notorious” Travis Peterkin (16-0-1, 7 KOs), of the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, NY, will be making their ShoBox debuts in the 10-round main event. Kalajdzic is seeking redemption following his controversial split decision loss in April, while Peterkin is hungry for recognition on the world stage.
The co-feature sees the return of Ivan “The Beast” Baranchyk (11-0, 10 KOs), born in Minsk, Byelorussia, now living in Brooklyn, NY, in his third ShoBox appearance taking on Roc Nation prospect Wang Zhimin (7-0, 3 KOs, 7-1 WSB), of Nutley, NJ, by way of Ningbo, China, in a 10-round bout. A fan favorite at Buffalo Run, Baranchyk will be defending his WBC USNBC junior welterweight title while the vacant USBA 140lb. belt will also be at stake.
Ukrainian welterweight Ivan “The Volk” Golub (12-0, 10 KOs, 5-0 WSB), of Brooklyn, NY, and James “Keep’em Sleepin” Stevenson (23-2, 16 KOs), of Baltimore, MD, vie for the vacant Junior NABF title in a scheduled eight-round contest. Golub, who accrued a 270-32 amateur record and was a five-time national champion in Ukraine, will be making his second appearance on ShoBox.
Heavyweight Trey Lippe Morrison (11-0, 11 KOs), of Tulsa, OK, who is the son of late former world heavyweight champion Tommy “The Duke” Morrison, and is a popular member of Holden’s Four State Franchise stable, makes his highly anticipated television debut against fellow unbeaten and Roc Nation prospect Ed Latimore (13-0, 7 KOs), of Pittsburgh, PA, in the six-round telecast opener.
