Some of the bouts on the undercard for the September 14 Baltimore Pro Boxing card at Martin's West in Woodlawn have been announced.
The co-feature is a rematch of a June 21st Martin's West bout as undefeated light heavyweight Mike “The Persecutor” Paschall of Baltimore takes on William Gill of Toms River, NJ. In the first contest, Paschall won a six-round majority decision. This contest is also scheduled for six rounds.
Since the June 21st bout, Paschall (9-0, two KO’s) captured another six-round majority decision over Ronald Boddie on August 12 in Ocean City. Gill (3-10, two KO’s) lost a six-round unanimous decision to undefeated Max Alexander on August 4 in Philadelphia. Seven of Gill’s last eight opponents have been undefeated at the time Gill faced them.
Undefeated Severn, MD middleweight prospect Jessie “The Beast” Nicklow (5-0, two KO’s) is also scheduled for the card. Nicklow will participate in a six-round contest against James Shedrick of Philadelphia. This was a bout originally scheduled for the Ocean City show last month.
Nicklow is coming off a first round TKO over Jessie Horton on June 21st in Woodlawn. Shedrick, the son of 1970’s Philadelphia lightweight prospect Jimmy Shedrick, lost his last encounter, a four-round unanimous decision to Derrick Findley on May 26 in East Chicago, IN. This will be Shedrick’s first six-round bout. You may remember the last time Shedrick was in this area, he knocked out Tony Jeter in the fourth round at BXF Gym in Millersville in December of 2005.
In an interesting Beltway tussle, Baltimore light heavyweight prospect Willie “For Real” Williams will face veteran Carlos “The Headbanger” Jones of Landover, MD. Williams is looking for his third straight victory. In his last outing, Williams (3-1, one KO) won a six-round majority decision over Richard Stewart on August 12 in Ocean City. Jones (5-10, three KO’s) will be trying to break a three-bout losing streak. Jones was stopped in the first round by John Vargas on May 12 in Reading, PA.
Three other bouts are scheduled to be included on the card.
