Tonight on "International Fight Night" presented by New Legends Boxing, Old World Boxing, & W.O.N. Promotions, Rob Garris will make his pro debut at 46 years old after 27 years of being away from the ring.

On Wednesday night ATG Radio spoke to lead promoter Felipe Gomez about Rob's pro debut this is what he had to say:

"Rob Garris will be making his pro debut after 27 years of retirement. Rob Garris is actually 46 years old and he is one of the oldest to turn pro. We are going to be setting history that day as well!

I know Rob supposedly had a great amateur background. He had a record of 63-3 so we are looking forward to his pro debut. We like to give these guys an opportunity to show what they can do. Rob Garris was turned down by several promoters. They did not want to give him an opportunity because of his age. I knew I was going to have a battle on my hands with the commission to get them to approve it. They worked on it then approved him. Now we are looking forward to making history that night!"

Rob will be taking on Abdellah Smith (1-4) on the undercard of Vinny Maddalone-Byron Polley. Rob decided to make his pro debut to help support his charity "Throwaway Kids" which is a foundation that advocates for foster children, reunites families, and purchases headstones for children that passed away in foster care. For more information on Throwaway Kids check out www.throwawaykids.net !
