DeAndre Ware Looks To Put Out Ronald Ellis
In Main Event Of ShoBox This Friday
Once-beaten prospect DeAndre Ware will look to make a big
statement when he takes on Ronald Ellis in the 10-round main
event of ShoBox: The New Generation this Friday live on
SHOWTIME (10 PM ET/PT).
The fight will take place at The Main Street Armory in
Rochester, New York.
Ware, who is a firefighter in his native Toledo, Ohio, had a
solid showing in his loneShoBox last September, losing a
spirted decision against undefeated prospect Cem Kilic.
"My training camp has been great. It has been the best so
far," said Ware.
Ware performed admirably against Kilic despite taking the
fight on less than two-weeks notice. The 31-year-old feels
that having a full camp will be the difference inhis matchup
"Honestly, this camp has been harder because I have actually
had a full camp to train and the process of training for a
10-rounder is much more in-depth than my previous camps. I
think the difference will be me being much sharper and in
more shape. My focus will be much better as well."
After his last appearance, Ware gained a lot of fans due to
platform because he brought the fight to Kilic.
"To all the fans out there, tune in! You're going to see a
much better performance and be ready for a great show!"
The Toledo firefighter will have his squad watching and
cheering for their comrade.
"My fellow brothers and sisters embraced me after my fight.
They told me the we're proud of me and that I represented
"DeAndre is just one of the guys that I am most proud of
representing. He has an unbelievable work ethic, he is great
father, a Fireman, and he also is a tremendous fighter. A
wonderful man," said Ware's Manager, David McWater of
