Omar Henry-Ishe Smith in The Works For Nov. 16?

By Ryan Burton has been advised that a fight between undefeated prospect Omar Henry (12-0-1, 9KOs) and former Contender Series participant Ishe Smith (24-5, 11KOs) is being discussed for the November 16th edition of ShoBox. According to our sources the fight has been verbally agreed to but no contracts have been signed.

Don King, who promotes Henry, has the date reserved and is looking to place the card in a venue in Miami, Florida.

Undefeated former amateur standout Angelo Santana (13-0, 10KOs) will also appear on the televised portion of the card against veteran Paulus Moses (29-2, 19KOs). The Cuban will face an opponent to be determined.

I thought Henry was moving on with his Hollywood career.

I bet this fight got made because Ishe called Henry a "bum" when he almost got knocked out by Floyd in sparring. [url][/url] I wanna see this one.

I hope Ishe puts a beating on this clown!

Finally Henry is fighting and stepping up his career is being brought up very slow even though boxing is second on his agenda good to see him back
