Local favorite Fadi Shuman (4-3) took on tough Canadian prospect Anthony Romero (4-1) in a 3 round amateur match up that pushed both guys to new levels in their respective careers. These are the type of fights that top flight amateurs need to have on their resumes so that if and when they decide to make the run as a professional, they have experiences like this in their back pocket.
A win here speaks volumes for Romero as Shuman has been inside the fences with some of the regions top prospects over the years. These two provide a positive outlook at the next generation of combat athlete.
I fully expect to see big things from both guys in the coming months and years.
