Fred Smalls placed 2nd last year in the 2012 Chicago Pro Wings of Strength. Thus far this season he's placed 7th at the 2013 Arnold Classic and 5th at the 2013 Arnold Classic Brazil. Smalls is looking to win the Chicago Pro contest with a physique that steadily improves each time he competes. At 5 weeks out, Fred Smalls is recharged and itching to get back into the fight.

However, Smalls is going up against some serious beef. Lionel Beyeke, Roelly Winklaar, Guy Cisternino, and Tomas Bures have committed to competing in the 2013 Chicago Pro.

In addition to Mens Open Bodybuilding, there will be four more professional divisions: Mens 212 and Under, Womens Bodybuilding, IFBB Pro Figure and Women Physique.

Regardless, I predict Fred Smalls will be in the top 5 and and most likely fighting for 1, 2 or 3. Either way, keep an eye in Smalls. He's Big Things Happening.
