Update on August 25 Card in Springfield!

The Sughan Productions card on Saturday, August 25 at Robert E. Lee High School in Springfield, VA is starting to come together.

The main event features Culpepper, VA-born cruiserweight Bobby Gunn taking on Randy Pogue of Norristown, PA in a scheduled 10-round contest.

Gunn (17-3, 14 KO's) scored a first-round TKO over Elija Dickens on June 9 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield when Dickens suffered an injury and could not come out for the second round. That contest was Gunn's first since losing a bout for the WBO Cruiserweight title when he was stopped in the first round by champion Enzo Maccarinelli on April 7 in Wales.

As reported earlier, Gunn is donating a portion of his purse from this bout to former world champion Iran "The Blade" Barkley.

Pogue (8-7-2, two KO's) is winless in his last four bouts, but his last outing was a four-round draw with Rafael Jastrzebski on June 27 in New York City. This will be Pogue's first scheduled 10-round bout. Pogue lost an eight-round contest to Mike Alvarez in November of 2000.

Also on the card is a bout that was actually made right here on Boxing Along The Beltway. Undefeated DC junior middleweight Lawrence Jones will take on Charlottsville, VA's "War Time" George Rivera in a scheduled four-rounder.

Jones (2-0, one KO) registered his first professional knockout in his last outing -- a first-round KO over Denny Lundy on June 16 in Martinsburg, WVA. Rivera (3-1, two KO's) is coming off a four-round unanimous decision over Montez Wilson on July 14 at the Winchester Sportsplex in Winchester, VA.

In another four-rounder, undefeated middleweight John "No Mercy" Mackey will take on veteran Vance Garvey of Indianapolis, IN.

Mackey, who was born in DC but now lives in Montgomery, AL, is fresh off a second-round TKO over Kenny Keaton on June 9 in Springfield. Mackey (5-0, three KO's) will face a wily boxer in the Bronx, NY-born Garvey (7-26-5, two KO's), who is coming off a sixth-round TKO victory over previously undefeated (23-0-1) Chase Shields on April 27 in Houston, TX. The victory broke a two-year, 15-bout winless streak for Garvey.

The card will also mark the return of Takoma Park, MD cruiserweight Willis Lockett. Lockett (7-4-4, two KO's) has not fought since winning by second-round TKO over Elija Dickens at the ABC Sports Complex on February 4, 2006.

Lockett will be involved in an all-Beltway four-rounder against Gaithersburg, MD's Calvin Riley. Riley (1-0, one KO) has not fought since winning his pro debut on April 29, 2006 at ABC against Mike Needling. Riley stopped Needling in the first round.

Undefeated Arlington, VA welterweight Bayan Jargal (Bayanmunkh Bayanjargal) will take on Akron, OH's Jason Jordan in another four-round contest. Jargal (2-0-1, one KO) is coming off a four-round draw against Jaime Rodriguez on May 31 at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, MD. Jordan (3-12-2) has lost seven in a row, including a six-round split decision to Joey Myers on August 3 in Charleston, WVA. Another one of the losses in this streak took place on May 12 at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA when Jordan lost a six-round decision to Lenny DeVictoria.

In heavyweight action, noted Beltway trainer Scott "Duke" Buchanan of DC returns to action inside the ring when he faces Akron's George Jacobs in a four-round bout. Buchanan (1-0, one KO) has not fought since making his long-awaited pro debut on March 3, 2006 at the Lincoln Theatre in DC. Buchanan stopped Felton Worrell in the first round. Jacobs (1-1, one KO) is coming off his first pro victory, a first-round TKO over Earl Briggs on May 12 in Lansing, MI.

Also slated for action on this card will be Riverdale, MD heavyweight Horace "The Reason" Grant (6-1, four KO's), fresh off his a four-round unanimous decision over Mujaheed Moore on August 3 at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD. Grant's opponent is to be determined.

The first bout on this card is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.

I remember Grant's debut in Springfield-dominating TKO.

I saw Bayan Jargal @ the Patriot Center. I liked what I saw, although there were times (Digital-is this just me or did you also see this?) when he seemed to hold back a bit.

Gary Digital Williams said...

I didn't see at the Patriot Center but I thought he did that throughout his bout at Michael's. I didn't think he was as aggressive in that bout as he had before.

Shane Gierke (who Jargal fought at the Patriot Center) is a wily veteran who looks to survive bouts. Jargal eventually got him though.

Jesus Christ, how many times are you gonna ask that same question? Being cautious is an attribute for new pros, not a con. That said,didn't he win by KO in the first?

Will Samson"Zeus"Mazyck be on this card also?

Gary Digital Williams said...

I don't think so. Unless Mazyck fights on the Left Hook show Sept. 15 show in Springfield or the Ballroom Boxing show on Sept. 27, he may be on the next Keystone Boxing show at Rosecroft on October 19.

I don't think he'll be on this show, though

acw said...

To the first anon: Yes he did win by KO (I think), and yes being cautious is good, but, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION, he seemed to overdo it at times.

I hope "Zeus" fights at the Sept. show in Springfield, as I want to see him in action. You going to that one Digital, maybe my dad can meet you there?

acw said...

And wow, I just saw on youtube the KO by Zeus of Jamal Terry. Maybe not the most technically proficient boxer, but moves pretty well for a guy his size, and when you're 7 ft., as long as you're powerful, which Zeus is, you don't need to be super technically proficient.

I think that kid Bayjargnal has a big future, he comes to fight.

Joe, it's not worth it. Trust me. I love this blog, and Digital, you do a great service, but for some reason it seems to attract the idiots in droves.

Boogie...Come here..get close, Listen...Hensley put on some of the best shows that I attended, and I am sure you have attended or have had an opportunity to be a part of in this area recently. I am a mere spectator and in the last year I have seen him make some mistakes, but I have seen him also bring some of the most spectacular talent and shows. I bet he laid groundwork for others (You perhaps?) to follow and that always opens the door to success. So Chill. Hensley has solid skills and as we all go balls to the wall and some things we try are spot on and then some just rancid...we learn.
