ShoBox's first card of 2016, Jan. 22, will feature undefeated prospects Rob Brant, Jarrell Miller, Harmonito Dela Torre, and Bakhtiyar Eyubov.

ShoBox: The New Generation looks to get 2016 off to a quick start with a Jan. 22 card that will feature four undefeated prospects competing in a quadrupleheader. The main event will feature unbeaten middleweight prospect Rob Brant (18-0, 11 KOs) taking on Decarlo Perez (15-3-1, 5 KOs) in a scheduled 10-rounder.

Brant, 25, is originally from Saint Paul, MN and was a 2010 National Golden Glove winner. He now trains out of the Dallas area with another fast-rising prospect in Errol Spence Jr. Brant's last fight back in October was a close majority decision win against Louis Rose, which snapped his five fight KO streak.

"I'm really excited about this fight and I've been training hard for several weeks now,'' Brant said, who lost three bouts in the World Series of Boxing. "I've got a very serious opponent in front of me. I've got to go back to pure boxing for this one. I have to be better in every department. It's my second time headlining ShoBox and I plan on improving from the first time, so viewers can chart my progress."

Also appearing on the ShoBox card will be a fight between Heavyweight Jarrell Miller (15-0-1, 13 KOs) and Donovan Dennis (12-2, 10 KOs) in a scheduled 8-rounder. Miller, 27, most recently knocked out Akhor Muralimov in the third round in October and is riding an 11-fight win streak since battling to a draw against Joey Dawejko a couple of years ago.

Lightweight Harmonito Dela Torre (17-0, 12 KOs) of the Philippines will make his first appearance on U.S. soil when he faces Rafael Guzman (16-1-1, 10 KOs) in another 8-round fight, with junior welterweight Bakhtiyar Eyubov (9-0, 9 KOs) of Kazakhstan opening the Showtime broadcast by taking on Jared Robinson (16-2-1, 7 KOs) in yet another scheduled 8-rounder.
