Brooklyn born and raised Sadam “World Kid” Ali (19-0, 12 KOs) has been on a tear since his Golden Boy Promotions debut at Barclays Center against Jay Krupp in September of 2013. Since then, the 25-year-old 2008 U.S. Olympian has halted Jesus Selig and Michael Clark to run his perfect record to 19-0. Jeremy Bryan (17-3, 7 KOs), of Paterson, N.J.,  was a decorated amateur who won two National Golden Gloves titles and owns a victory in the amateurs over headliner Danny Garcia. The 28-year-old Bryan has won three of his last four bouts, most recently defeating Yuir Ramanau and Issouf Kinda.

“I feel fortunate to have my first title defense in the heart of Brooklyn. Fighting at home brings the best out of me,” said Ali, who’s defending his title for the first time at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. “I’ve been working hard since I was eight-years-old. I’m climbing the ladder, and with every victory I’m step closer to my dream, a shot to a world title.”

The brother of IBF Junior Welterweight World Champion Lamont Peterson, lightweight contender Anthony Peterson (33-1, 21 KOs) hopes to add his own title belt to the family trophy case in the coming year, but first he’ll have to add to his three-fight winning streak against an opponent to be announced.. Owner of wins over Daniel Attah, Dominic Salcido and Marcos Leonardo Jimenez, the 29-year-old Washington, D.C. product is currently ranked 12th in the world by the IBF, and he’s expecting to climb higher with a triumph in his  upcoming bout.

"I'm excited and honored to have my fight televised on SHO EXTREME and from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Those are two firsts for me," said Lamont Peterson’s younger brother, Anthony. “Boxing is my life. It's in my blood.  It’s the only thing I live for and I couldn’t ask for more. Fighting in a world class arena in a televise bout and sharing the card with my brother…that’s the dream.”

Proudly representing his borough of Brooklyn will be super lightweight prospect Zachary Ochoa (7-0, 4 KOs). Appearing at Barclays Center for the third time, the 22-year-old Ochoa has showed style and savvy throughout his young career. He’ll face Luis Cervantes (7-7-3, 2 KOs), of Palm Springs, Calif., in a four-rounder on Aug. 9.

As he approaches his record seventh appearance at Barclays Center, 2012 U.S. Olympian “Sir” Marcus Browne (11-0, 8 KOs) is becoming synonymous with boxing’s newest Mecca. Unbeaten as a professional, including four victories by knockout at Barclays Center, the Staten Island native has shown that there’s nothing like fighting in his own backyard. The up-and-coming light heavyweight will make his 10-round debut against Paul Vazquez (10-5-1, 3 KO’s), of Oakland, Calif.

Puerto Rico’s latest star on the rise, Orocovis’ Prichard Colon (10-0, 10 KOs) has been devastating winning all his fights inside the distance.  Just 21-years-old, Colon, who will face Washington, D.C,’s Lenwood Dozier (9-6-1, 4 KO’s) in an eight-round junior middleweight bout, is sure to thrill the fans in his New York City debut.

Joining the Peterson brothers in representing the D.C. area, 21-year-old super middleweight phenom D’mitrius Ballard (5-0, 4 KOs) will open the show in a six-round bout against Hayti, Montana’s Barry Trotter (2-1, 1 KO). A ferocious finisher with power in both hands, Ballard is coming off a second-round technical knockout over Quincy Miner in April.
