WBF title fight Saturday at WAC

The World Boxing Federation North American Light Heavyweight title will determined Saturday night at the Whitehall Athletic Club.

Shawn Miller, of Troy, and Yasin “The Assasin” Rashid, of Brooklyn, will compete for the vacant title in what is the first professional title fight for either boxer.

Miller, 31, played college baseball at West Virginia University before becoming a professional boxer in 2009. Since that time he has gone 10-1-1 with four wins coming by knockout. His only loss came in 2010 at the hands of Steven Tyner.

Rashid, 37, is 7-4 with two wins coming by knockout in a career that began in 2004. Although he is considered the underdog, he fought against superior competition with his losses coming against fighters with a combined record of 37-1.

The title fight will be supported an undercard featuring some of New York’s most promising prospects and contenders, including Albany’s Sarah “The Knockout” Kuhn and Eric “Danger” Fields of Ardmore, Okla.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. and VIP and ringside seating is available. General admission costs $25.
