24-year-old Luis Ramos Jr. (22-0, 9 KO's) has shown remarkable skill and poise with each successive step up in competition he has taken. In 2011, Ramos began his run to the top with big wins over Francisco Lorenzo and David Rodela, but this year, the Santa Ana, Calif. southpaw upped the ante even more by decisioning respected contender Raymundo Beltran in January and then nearly shutting out rugged former world title challenger Daniel Attah in April. He'll look to remain undefeated against the always tough Bolaños on the 8th.

Ciudad Obregon's Noe Bolaños (24-6-1, 16 KO's) has grown up in the world of professional boxing, turning professional a week after his 17th birthday in 2003. Since then, he has built a well-earned reputation as a rugged warrior willing to throw hands with anyone in the game at a moment's notice. After some rough outings between 2007 and 2009, Bolaños got back on track in 2010 and has won four of his last five, all by knockout. On September 8, he will test the unbeaten Ramos.

Already 4-0 in 2012, with knockout wins over Marlon Hayes, Jesse Oltmanns, Owen Beck and Kertson Manswell, Tuscaloosa, Alabama's Deontay Wilder (24-0, 24 KO's) has been cutting a path of destruction through the heavyweight division throughout his career. A 2008 United States Olympic Bronze Medalist with knockout power in both hands, the 26-year-old "Bronze Bomber" has just one suggestion for those watching his fight on September 8, don't blink.

Detroit's Damon "Bulldog" McCreary (14-0, 10 KO's) has yet to taste defeat in a professional boxing ring and on September 8 he has every intention of keeping that streak intact by shocking rising star Wilder. The owner of a technical knockout win over Etianne Whitaker, the 39-year-old will be making his first appearance in California and he's primed and ready to perform.

The year's most highly aniticipated heavyweight fight is only a week away... on a serious note I wonder where they manage to find these guys for Wilder to beat down on.

I see Wilder's still padding his record with bums. This guy McCreary looks absolute trash, despite being unbeaten.

Wilder vs a fat old Middleweight... Yeah I'll pass.

Wow a week away, good to see Wilder staying busy though. To bad I will have to DVR it, since there are other more important fights that night. Although I could probably just flip it over real quick when Wilder…
