Shields to face Candelo

By Peter Lim

In an interesting junior middleweight matchup, Chase “The White Tiger” Shields, 29-2-1 (14 KOs), takes on former two-time world-title challenger Juan Carlos Candelo, 28-10-4 (19 KOs), over eight rounds on Dec. 3 at the Houston Club. Shields is a once-promising prospect who never made it past the four- and six-round club scene, while JC Candelo had beaten some decent opponents but has lost more than he’s won since his two failed attempts at the IBF belt.

A parade of Houston-area pugilists will be featured on the undercards. Jesus “Torrito” Rodarte, 5-0 (2 KOs), faces Bruente Miller, 3-1 (3 KOs), of Texarkana, AR, in a lightweight bout. Heavyweights Steve Collins, 21-1 (15 KOs), and Roderick Willis, 14-5 (9 KOs) will clash in a cross-town showdown. Power-punching cruiserweight Craig Baker, 9-0 (8 KOs), is also scheduled to fight. Billed Thursday Night Throwdown, the fights will be staged by Savarese Boxing Promotions.
