Fighting out of Washington, DC, 25-year-old Thomas Williams (11-0, 8 KO's) has emerged over the last two years as one of the top prospects in the light heavyweight division. Currently riding a four-fight knockout streak, Williams followed up three consecutive first round knockouts with a fifth round finish over Ricardo Campillo on December 8. This Saturday, he'll look to get 2013 off to a knockout start against fellow prospect Smith.

A professional since 2005, Williamson, Kentucky's Jason Smith (8-1, 6 KO's) has the power and desire to make the best of the biggest opportunity of his career this Saturday. A knockout artist with dynamite in his gloves, Smith's current five fight winning streak includes four consecutive knockouts, three in two rounds or less.

At the 2012 London Olympics, Cleveland's Terrell Gausha (1-0, 1 KO) went 1-1 as a member of Team USA, finishing off his amateur career in style. Last November, the 25-year-old made his professional debut with an impressive second round knockout over Dustin Caplinger and he looks to go for two straight this Saturday against St. Joseph, Missouri's Kenneth Schmitz (2-4, 1 KO).

Now making his home in Miami, 2004 Olympic Silver Medalist for Cuba Yudel Johnson (12-1, 8 KO's) plans on bouncing back from the first professional loss of his career to Willie Nelson last May when he tackles an opponent to be named in an eight-round junior middleweight fight.

Plus, Hollywood, Florida super middleweight Tracy Rollins (2-0, 1 KO) will take on an opponent to be determined in a four-round fight and Chapel Hill, North Carolina welterweight Willie Jones will see action in a four-round bout against an opponent to be named. In the evening's opening fight, also scheduled for four rounds, Fort Lauderdale's own Larry Yanez (3-3-1) faces Miami's John Wampash (1-7-1, 1 KO) in the lightweight division.
