Frank “The Hammer” White will put his Canada Professional Boxing Council belt on the line this Friday in Calgary against Rob Nichols of Edmonton.

After a stretch of six fights between 2010 and 2012 where he lost five and had one draw, White has rebounded to win three of his last four bouts, including winning the CPBC crown over Sandy Pembroke in Moncton, New Brunswick in 2014.

White is 10-8-2 in his professional career, while Nichols is 8-3-1.

Both fighters have five KO’s in their respective careers.

Nichols, 36, is eight years younger than White.

The championship bout is scheduled for ten rounds which could be an advantage for Wyoming resident.  Nine of his last ten fights have been scheduled for eight or more rounds, while Nichols has never fought more than six rounds.
