Rahman, Buchanan, Kisner Travel To Norfolk August 14!

A number of Beltway Boxers will be a part of a pro card coming to the Norfolk Scope in Norfolk, VA on Saturday, August 14.

Headlining the card will be former world heavyweight champion Hasim "The Rock" Rahman taking on journeyman Damon Reed in a scheduled 10-round encounter. Rahman (47-7-2, 38 KO's) will be fighting for the third time this year. On June 19, Rahman scored a fourth-round TKO over Shannon Miller in Niagra Falls, NY.

Reed (45-13, 32 KO's) is a veteran who has fought the likes of Kali Meehan and Monte Barrett. Reed has not fought since November 13 when he stopped Jim Franklin in the third round in Kansas City, MO.

The co-feature is a rematch between Capitol Heights, MD's Henry "Sugar Poo" Buchanan and long-time nemesis and Norfolk's own Bobby Jordan, Jr. Buchanan (19-2, 12 KO's) will be defending his World Boxing Foundation All-Americas Super Middleweight title. Buchanan last fought on April 2 at the Washington Convention Center and won an eight-round unanimous decision over Julius Fogle. Jordan (8-2-1, four KO's) has won his last two bouts at the Scope, scoring back-to-back fourth-round TKO's.

Buchanan and Jordan have fought a total of seven previous times -- six in the amateurs (Buchanan has the advantage, 5-1) and once as pros (Buchanan won an eight-round unanimous decision in DC on October 24).

According to Chris Perry of Fightnews.com, Buchanan had some interesting words to say about his rival at a recent press conference in Norfolk.

“We do have a great history when it comes to boxing,” said Buchanan. Looking at his rival at the press conference he continued, “You are a very tough guy, a sharp guy with a lot of heart. You have beautiful parents who care a lot about you. As I hear you speak, I’m touched by the situation. But, what do you want me to do? I’ve got to hurt you. I don’t want to, but I’ve got no other choice. I have to hurt you and you know I will because I’ve done it in the past. This time, I’ve got to put something on you to make you never speak my name again unless it’s in church when your asking God to protect you from me.”

Jordan simply responded, “When we fight, we’re gonna fight like we always do,” responded Jordan. “And, yes, I’m going to try and hurt you as you will try and hurt me. That’s part of the game. I appreciate the opportunity again. I’ll see you on the 14th.”

Also on the card will be undefeated Glen Burnie, MD cruiser "The American Child" Nick Kisner (4-0, two KO's) taking on Kenneth Farr of Rocky Mount, NC (0-3) and super featherweight Darrell "The Project" Martin of Baltimore (4-12, one KO) will battle Norfolk's Stephan Alexander (4-2, four KO's).

Gary who you pick

Gary Digital Williams said...

I think I'd have to go with Kisner, only because he's been active. But don't count McCombs out.

Nick Kisner has no idea who mccombs is. No one has contacted him at all about this. He said this is the first time he has heard about this.

Richy McCombs said...

well I have a contract that states otherwise,And when I heard of Nick I had know clue as to who he was but I know now....oh Nick knows who I am but I hope it goes through forreal.

kisner has no clue whatso ever.where is the show september 26th. and i seen a video of this guy. kisner is going to kill him. this guy cant fight, he is slow and isnt good lmao. 2nd round ko for kisner

Anonymous said...

this is nothing to make a big deal of. kisner is a prospect who i 4-0. mccombs is a loser who is 1-2. something wrong with ur chin. anyone who makes a biggie of this is ridicolous. and show proof that u got the contract. this is just a big lie and waste of time. nick just laughed and said some people r ridicoulous lol

Anonymous said...

its sad because rich really wants to fight I seen the kid train,he has no one guiding him so he gets on blogs to self promote it hopes of a break through. I heard there is a contract which mcombs has signed but Kisner has not so its really a possible fight.I would really like to see people get on here and support the fighters instead of trash talking them smh
