Chicago Pro Preview: Roelly Winklaar vs Hunter Labrada vs Maxx Charles

Chicago Pro will feature an epic battle between Roelly Winklaar, Hunter Labrada, and Maxx Charles.

It looks like the Chicago Pro got a whole lot more interesting. It looks like it’s been confirmed that Roelly Winklaar will participate at the show.

The official Chicago Pro competitors list was just released. Roelly Winklaar was one of the names on the list confirming his participation at the show. Winklaar will be facing off against other top pros like Hassan Mostafa who is still hungry for a spot at the 2021 Olympia. He will also have to face Hunter Labrada and Maxx Charles who has been looking impressive as of late.

Full Competitors List

While many speculated that Roelly Winklaar would compete at the Arnold Classic, it appears that the veteran bodybuilder has decided to take part at the Chicago Pro. Both the Arnold Classic and the Chicago Pro can grant the winner a ticket to the 2021 Olympia. But rather than contend with all the other top level bodybuilders, Winklaar has decided to try his hand at the Chicago Pro.

It’s a smart play to say the least. While Roelly Winklaar has what it takes to contend against the best bodybuilders in the world at the Arnold Classic, he’ll have a greater chance at success at the Chicago Pro. It’s simply a matter of probabilities. If he wishes to contend with the best of the best at the Olympia, earning his spot with a win at the Chicago Pro makes all the sense in the world.

Roelly Winklaar has been looking pretty impressive in the lead up to the show. While it was unclear what show he would be competing in, Whnklaar has clearly been hard at work.

The Chicago Pro Preview

The Chicago Pro show is upon us and as such it’s only right that we delve into match ups ahead, namely in the Men’s Open division. With major athletes like Roelly Winklaar, Hunter Labrada, and Maxx Charles competing, it’s anyone’s guess as to who will take top honors at the show.

Roelly Winklaar

The top veteran at the show, Roelly Winklaar is the clear front runner at the Chicago Pro. He has been putting in some quality work ever since missing out at his chance to compete at the 2020 Olympia. Now is his chance to earn a place at the 2021 show.

Now all that’s left is to see what Winklaar brings to the stage at the Chicago Pro. If the above update is any indication, we could see “The Beast” punch his ticket for the 2021 Olympia. But he’ll have his work cut out for him against some of the top talent in the division.

Hunter Labrada

With a great deal of potential and upside, Hunter Labrada clearly has what it takes to pull off a victory this weekend. Labrada has raw potential and some incredible musculature. With the kind of symmetry and proportions that could make him a champion, Hunter Labrada is clearly the biggest threat to Roelly Winklaar at this show.

Maxx Charles

Brimming with a great deal of potential himself, Maxx Charles has showcased a ton of talent in the past. At last year’s New York Pro, Charles came in fifth at the show. Many believed he should have placed higher, that he could have potentially even won the entire show. The line up may be truly staggering one, but there’s no doubt that Maxx Charles has what it takes to place in the top 3 at the show.

Who do you think will win at the Chicago Pro?
