The youngest brother of two-division world champion Rances
and Olympic gold medalist Yan, Barthelemy picked up four
victories in 2016 and started his 2017 campaign with a
victory over Jesus Aguinaga. The 27-year-old fights out of
Las Vegas by way of Cuba and will return to fight at the
same venue where he defeated Ricardo Nunez last September
and Pedro Melo last March.
Born in Nagua, Dominican Republic, Blanco lives and trains
in Puerto Rico and most recently scored a second-round
knockout of Gustavo Rodriguez in December 2016. The
29-year-old has fought professionally since 2012 and picked
up a regional lightweight belt last January with a victory
over previously unbeaten Angel Luis Ocasio and followed it
up by winning the Dominican Republic lightweight title over
previously undefeated Mario Beltre.
Unbeaten since turning pro in 2013, Hernandez has been
triumphant in his last two appearances, both at the Robinson
Rancheria Resort & Casino. He defeated previously unbeaten
Thomas Hill in an exciting brawl in July of last year and he
followed that up with a dominant performance over
once-beaten Antonio Urista in September. The 23-year-old
fights out of Fresno, California and picked up three
victories in 2015.
A two-time amateur National Champion fighting out of
Wilmington, Delaware, Davis turned pro in 2014 after a
stellar amateur career. Now 22-years-old, he earned wins in
his first 10 starts before dropping a competitive contest to
then unbeaten Junior Castillo in April. A two-time
Pennsylvania Golden Gloves champion, Davis bounced back in
his last outing with a dominant third-round stoppage of
Carlos Gabriel Ozan in November.
Fighting out of Long Beach, California, McAllister turned
pro in December 2014 and has knocked out every opponent he's
faced. The 26-year-old stayed busy in 2015 as he earned five
victories before winning twice more in 2016. His last bout
was also featured on FS1 and FOX Deportes as McCallister
beat Gilberto Pereira dos Santos by seventh-round TKO at
Robinson Rancheria Resort & Casino.
