Opponent changes for Ricky Steele are nothing new. In his young pro career, Steele has had short notice replacements in 2 of 3 fights- and Front Street Fights 7 (November 13, CenturyLink Arena, Boise, ID), will be no exception. Visa issues have prevented Ricky’s original opponent, Alan Leal, from making the trek from Brazil to America. However, the fine staff at Front Street Fights, have secured a fantastic replacement.
Joaquin Calderon (7-1) now steps in to replace Leal against the undefeated Steele (3-0) in a professional bantamweight (135 lb) clash. Calderon last appeared in FSF 6, taking a decision win from Steele’s CF/SBG Idaho teammate, Brendon Raftery. This looks to be an awesome matchup!!!
