Shawn McCalman vs. Ulisses Jimenez
Century Casino in Central City, Colorado, USA – 6 August 2022
Undefeated Colorado super middleweight “The Amazing” Shawn McCalman (11-0, 6 KOs), arguably boxing’s best kept secret outside of the Rocky Mountain, returns this Saturday night outdoors at Century Casino in Central City, Colorado, in the 6-round, co-featured event against Mexican Ulisses “El Cerillo” Jimenez (24-30-1).
Co-trained by former world champion Vernon Phillips and residing in Aurora, Colorado, McCalman was a standout amateur who compiled a 65-7 record, including top honors in three Colorado State Golden Gloves tournaments.
The 28-year-old McCalman turned pro back in September of 2018, and, despite COVID-19 restrictions, he’s remained busy with four fights in each of the last two years, and Saturday’s fight will mark his third in 2022.
During the summer of 2021, McCalman won a 6-round decision against Vaughn “The Animal” Alexander (15-5) to capture the American Boxing Federation (ABF) West Super Middleweight Championship.
In his most recent fight this past March in Cheyenne, Wyoming, McCalman defeated previously undefeated Marquis Moore (10-0) by way of an 8-round unanimous decision (80-72, 78-74, 77-75).
“Shawn has flown under the radar and sneaking into the rankings,” McCalman’s manager Ryan Roach (Fighter Locker) said. “We have positioned him perfectly in 10 fights. He will be a scary fighter for a lot of the top guys in his division, Shawn has speed, power and he is a big man who been in with some good opponents including undefeated fighters.
“He had a very good camp. I never like looking ahead during fight week, but if we take care of business, I I think it makes sense to challenge someone in the top 10. We will see after this fight. We’ll see after this fight.”
