New York, NY – Light heavyweight contender “Hot Rod” Radivoje Kalajdzic
(23-1, 16 KOs), of St. Petersburg, FL, returns to battle in the second fight of his comeback TONIGHT, October 5, in Tampa, FL, facing heavy-handed Colombian Alex “El Principe” Theran (20-2, 13 KOs), in a scheduled eight-rounder. Their clash headlines an 11-bout card at the Bryan Glazer Family JCC Auditorium.
The 27-year-old Kalajdzic, a native of Bosnia and Herzegovina, has won his last two bouts since losing the first bout of his eight-year career. On April 16, 2016, Kalajdzic faced off against Brooklyn’s Marcus Browne at Barclays Center. Despite dropping the undefeated 2012 U.S. Olympian, Kalajdzic would lose a very close eight-round split decision.
Most recently, Kalajdzic knocked out veteran Brad Austin in the first round on July 21, in Tampa, FL. Prior to the victory over Austin, Kalajdzic stopped then-undefeated Travis Peterkin in the fifth round on September 23, 2016, in a nationally televised fight. Southpaw Theran is riding a three-bout knockout streak.
