Undefeated and fast-rising lightweight prospect, Chris “Prime Time” Colbert, while be dueling against former title challenger, Miguel Beltran Jr. on September 21.
Representing his hometown of Brooklyn, New York, Colbert (12-0, 4KOs) is quickly making a name for himself as he continues to showcase his incomparable skills in the ring. He most recently dominated Alberto Mercado in an unanimous decision in June.
Always pledging his fight to a different cause, Colbert says he’s “dedicating this bout to the fight against childhood cancer. I plan on going in to Rabobank Arena and doing what I do best on September 21. I never make predictions for my fights, but I’m always looking to dominate and if the knockout comes then it comes. I have a job to do and I just have to stay focused on the man in front of me. It’s going to be ‘Prime Time’ on September 21 so that fans will want to make sure to tune-in for this one.”
Beltran (33-7, 22KOs) is returning to the ring after dropping a decision to former world champion, Yuriorkis Gamboa last November.
“I’m very excited for this opportunity to fight Chris Colbert on FS1 and FOX Deportes,” said Beltran. “I have fought the best 130 pounders in the world – Rocky Martinez, Gamboa, Mickey Roman and I have challenged for the world title twice. This is the type of fight I need on national TV to get myself back in contention. I’m very serious about winning and happy to have my training camp in Los Angeles with my cousin, former world champion Ray Beltran, who is helping me prepare for victory.”
Looking to be an exciting night of boxing, former world champion, Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin and Alfredo Angulo will be headlining the Premier Boxing Champions Fight Night. “This is a great fight card with anything a boxing fan could want, featuring former champions, top contenders and future stars, all in evenly-match bouts that promise drama,” said Tom Brown, President of TGB Promotions. “Peter Quillin vs. Alfredo Angulo promises to be a good, old fashion slugfest with two fighters looking to prove they’re ready for a world title fight next. With exciting prospects like Chris Colbert and Jesus Ramos, plus evenly matched fights between contenders in Williams vs. Dulorme and Rosario vs. Murtazaliev, this will be an action-packed night from top to bottom.”
