Radivoje Kalajdzic leads 9/23 ShoBox quadrupleheader

The eight fighters have a combined record of 114-3-1, as the press release helpfully points out.

The folks at ShoBox seem to like doing things in fours. On September 23rd in Miami, Oklahoma, they’ll be showing another quadrupleheader, this one helmed by rising light heavyweight Radivoje Kalajdzic’s ten-rounder against Travis Peterkin.

The above-linked press release goes into an impressive amount of detail on the dramatis personae, so I’ll just pass along the cliff notes.

Bosnian-born and U.S.-based Kalajdzic (21-1, 14 KO) would have a win over former Olympian Marcus Browne in a just world, but had to settle for a split decision loss in their April showdown. He should be a decent-sized favorite over the unbeaten but untested Peterkin (16-0-1, 7 KO).

Super lightweight bruiser Ivan Baranchyk (11-0, 10 KO) will look to steal the show in the co-feature against Zhimin Wang (7-0, 3 KO). Baranchyk knocked out fellow unbeaten Nicholas Givhan in twenty-one seconds in his last ShoBox quadrupleheader and certainly looks like a killer at the age of twenty-three.

Ivan Golub (12-0, 10 KO), a welterweight who appeared on the same show as Baranchyk, takes on the experienced but not-that-good James Stevenson (23-2, 16 KO) while Trey Lippe (11-0, 11 KO), son of Tommy Morrison, opens the show against Ed Latimore (13-0, 7 KO).

Overall, not a bad show at all. There’s definitely some quality young talent on the bill.
