The main event will feature undefeated Rob Brant (18-0, 11 KOs) against tough and talented, Decarlo Perez (15-3-1, 5 KOs) for the WBA NABA Middleweight Championship. “I’ve got a very serious opponent in front of me. He rates about a 7.7 at everything, which doesn’t leave a whole lot of weaknesses. I’ve got to go back to pure boxing for this one. I have to be better in every department. It’s my second time headlining ‘ShoBox’ and I plan on improving from the first time so viewers can chart my progress. This is my time to show my growth.” says Brant referencing the tough task ahead of him this weekend.
