Anthony “The Genius” Romero (6-0-0) will be looking to add to his 14-win streak when he battles Jake “The Machine” Miller at Ohio Combat League 7.
This will be a contest for the promotion’s pro lightweight title taking place on March 7 at Express Live in Columbus, Ohio.
At only 22-year-old, Romero has been in the ring with talented fighters during his previous contract with King of the Cage. None of them were able to outwit the now free agent. Beginning his amateur career at the age of 18, Romero climbed his way up the lightweight ladder. He currently sits atop the New York Pro Lightweight rankings.
Last September the Para Bellum/Niagara Top team fighter beat Troy Wittman by unanimous decision at KOTC: Showtime II.
Jake Miller (5-1-0) is 26 years old and fights out of Grove City Jiu Jitsu in Ohio. In his last fight, he took out Jared Chauvin at OCL 3 in October winning due to retirement in round 2. Miller, who is on a 2-win streak, suffered his lone professional defeat against Jeffrey Pelton. He lost by rear naked choke in round 2 at Caged Thunder 5.
The fight card will be part of the Arnold Sports Festival, an annual event in Columbus that draws 22,000 athletes from 80 nations to compete in more than 80 events.
