Antonio Tarver returns as a heavyweight Friday Oct 15th!

Former undisputed Light Heavyweight Champion Antonio Tarver and heavyweight Nagy Aguilera participated in a national media conference call to discuss their upcoming heavyweight bout on Friday, Oct. 15, at Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Okla., on ShoBox: The New Generation, live on SHOWTIME® (11 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast).

Tarver, a former undisputed light heavyweight champion and the first man to knock out future Hall of Famer Roy Jones, Jr.,will be fighting for the first time as a heavyweight after a hugely successful campaign at 175 pounds.  Tarver, of Tampa, Fla., took more than a year off from fighting after his last bout in 2009 and has been serving as an expert commentator for SHOWTIME.

Aguilera, of Newburgh, N.Y. by way of Dominican Republic, boasts an impressive opponent list throughout his three years as a professional. The 24-year-old holds a career-best first round knockout over former WBC heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev in 2009 and has fought against other veteran heavyweights like Samuel Peter and Maurice Harris.
