They’ve been waiting and watching. Now six young and hungry super middleweights with a combined record of 109-3 will get their chance to showcase their talent tonight on ShoBox: The New Generation at 11 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the west coast) live on SHOWTIME®. Unbeaten Marcus “Too Much” Johnson (18-0, 14 KOs) battles Derek “The Black Lion” Edwards (25-0, 13 KOs) in the 10-round main event of the exciting tripleheader being billed “The Next Generation of Super Middleweights”. The fights will take place at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago. Donovan “Da Bomb” George (19-0, 17 KOs) will face Osumanu Adama (17-1, 13 KOs) in a 10-round co-feature tilt and Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (13-0, 9 KOs) will take on Kevin Engel (17-2, 14 KOs) in an eight-round affair to open the telecast. “You could call us the Baby Super Six,” said George. “None of us are really established but I’m familiar with all the others and think it’s a great idea to showcase the next group of upcoming super middleweights. It’s great for boxing. The division is so stacked. I’m so fortunate to be in this weight class because there are so many good fights for me once I get my name out there.”
