The final press conference was held today at the Treasure Island Hotel in Las Vegas for Friday’s “ShoBox: The New Generation” fight card.

Don King: This card is called “Fight for Freedom, The Dream Lives On” because the main event features a fighter who came from Cuba on a raft with 26 other people (Angelo Santana 14-0, 11 KOs) against a fighter who migrated from Uzbekistan (Bahodir Mamadjonov, 11-1, 7KOs). It will also feature two young up and coming fighters in Amir Imam (8-0, 7KOs) against Jeremy Bryan (16-2, 7 KOs).

It’s a shame that Showtime could not show the fight between 2 of the best light heavyweights around and both undefeated in Ryan Coyne (21-0, 9KOs) and Marcus Oliveira (24-0, 19 KOs). This will be a WBA 12 round final elimination bout to determine the number one ranking and mandatory challenger for the champion Beibut Shumenov

Angelo Santana: I am thrilled to be on this card and to show my skills. I want to Thank God, Don King and Showtime.

Bahodir Mamadjonov: I am happy to be here. I want to thank Don King and Santana’s camp for giving me this opportunity Be sure and watch Friday.

Amir Imam: I want to thank DKP and Showtime and Treasure Island for allowing me to show my talent. This is Showtime and I came to showcase my talents.

Jeremy Bryan: I had a great camp and I am in great shape and I am out here to do what I do best.
