Roach Jr. is a 22-year-old native of Washington, D.C. who debuted as a professional in April 2014 after an impressive run as an amateur through the NoXcuse Boxing Club. Since then, Roach's combination of skill and technique has made him into an important player in the super featherweight division. Roach Jr. is coming off a controversial draw against Orlando "El Fenomeno" Cruz in a fight that many believed he won, and he's ready to erase any doubts about his ability to become a world champion on July 20.
