Boxing superstar Abraham 'Super' Nova is taking a step up in his game as he'll step into the ring for the first time Saturday night as a member of Top Rank Boxing's team. The super featherweight turned 26 years old on Tuesday, January 14th and he'll be on a platform for all to see when he touches gloves with Pedro Navarrete.

Super Nova will put his perfect 17-0 record on the line this Saturday night, January 18th at Turning Stone Casino Resort. It's a fight you can watch on ESPN+. Born in Puerto Rico, Nova and his family moved to Albany, NY when he was one-year old and he has followed in the footsteps of his father and brothers by putting on the handwraps and gloves.

From the Albany Boxing gym, where he still trains, Nova has fought for Team USA and his professional career has taken him around the world. Check out the entertaining interview with the very engaging Abraham 'Super' Nova above.
