The 23-year-old Asberry has quickly impressed Chicago area fight fans since turning professional last year with four dominant wins, two by stoppage. Asberry has fought twice in 2014, scoring four round shutout decisions each time, most recently dominating Raymundo Lopez on March 7th in Elk Grove, Illinois.

Shorter will be making his first start of 2014, having lost a very close majority decision to undefeated, hometown prospect Paul Barker April 27, 2013 in Toledo, Ohio.

Popular Chicago based amateur SAM HOROWITZ will make his highly anticipated pro debut in a scheduled four round light heavyweight clash with Mukwonago, Wisconsin native MIKE REITER.

Local welterweight newcomer WILL COIX will make a quick return to action following his second round knockout of Justin Gauthier in his pro debut on April 18 at the Horseshoe Hammond. Coix will face THOMAS AMARO, 2-5-0, of Holland, Michigan in a four round bout.

Popular lightweight RUSSELL “Rocky” FIORE, 11-2-1 (7KO’s), will look to continue his hot streak against TIM CARRIZALES, 4-11-1 (3KO’s) of Waukesha, Wisconsin in a scheduled six rounder.

Fiore is currently riding a six bout-winning streak dating back to March 2012.

Undefeated bantamweight prospect ADAN ORTIZ, 6-0-0 (5KO’s), of Sterling, Illinois, returns to action following a year long absence battling Merrillville, Indiana’s ANTOINE KNIGHT, 3-7-0 (1KO) in a four round bout.
