MONTANA LOVE TO FACE SAM TEAH IN OPENING BOUT OF SHOBOX Feb 2

NEW YORK (Jan. 30, 2018) – Undefeated super lightweight *Montana Love* will
face streaking Philadelphia prospect *Sam Teah* in the opening bout of *ShoBox:
The New Generation this **Friday, Feb. 2*, live on *SHOWTIME (10 p.m.
ET/PT)*
from *WinnaVegas Casino Resort *in *Sloan, Iowa.*

Cleveland native Love, who was originally scheduled to fight on a
non-televised undercard bout on Feb. 2, replaces Wellington Romero, who was
forced to withdraw on Monday with a back injury.

Teah (12-1-1, 5 KOs) vs. Love (8-0, 4 KOs), is an eight-round super
lightweight matchup that will serve as the opening bout of what is now a
three-fight ShoBox telecast.

In Friday’s main event, undefeated 168-pound prospects Ronald Ellis
(14-0-1, 10 KOs) and Junior Younan (13-0, 9 KOs) will clash in a 10-round
super middleweight bout. In the co-feature, Thomas Mattice (10-0, 8 KOs)
will face two-time ShoBox winner Rolando Chinea (15-1-1, 6 KOs) in an
eight-round lightweight matchup.

NOTE: A previously announced matchup between Devin Haney and Harmonito Dela
Torre was pulled from the ShoBox telecast after the Filipino Dela Torre
encountered visa issues.

Love was an accomplished amateur who compiled a 174-13 record and won a
bronze medal at the 2012 National Golden Gloves Championships. The
22-year-old southpaw recently sparred with Adrien Broner and served as head
sparring partner for Robert Easter Jr. as the IBF Lightweight World
Champion prepared for his title defense against Javier Fortuna on Jan. 20.

Teah, of Philadelphia by way of Liberia, has won five in a row and owns a
2015 ShoBox victory over previously undefeated O’Shaquie Foster.

The event is promoted by GH3 Promotions in association with Roc Nation
Sports, Victory Promotions, and Ringside Ticket. Tickets are just $10
general admission prior to the event and $20 on Feb. 2. For more
information call: 1.800.HOT.WINN ext. 7117.

Barry Tompkins will call the ShoBox action from ringside with Steve Farhood
and former world champion Raul Marquez serving as expert analysts. The
executive producer is Gordon Hall with Richard Gaughan producing and Rick
Phillips directing.
