Babie Girl Productions is bringing a pro boxing card to the Northwest Masonic Temple, 1000 U Street, NW in DC on Saturday, October 30.
The two main event bouts are contests sanctioned by the Global Boxing Association, a sanctioning body based in England. In one contest, Columbia, MD junior middleweight Tony "Mo Better" Jeter (9-2-1, eight KO's) will battle Jose Felix of Savannah, GA (10-9-2, three KO's) for the GBA Junior Middleweight title. Jeter is unbeaten in his last six bouts and has scored knockouts in four of those bouts. Felix is winless in his last seven and has been knocked out in all seven contests.
The other GBA bout is for the vacant super bantamweight title as 2000 Olympic bronze medalist Clarence "Untouchable" Vinson (17-2, seven KO's) takes on Steve Cannell of Santa Fe, NM (4-4-3). Vinson has been idle since his eight-round majority decision victory over Robert Da Luz in June of 2009 at the Washington Convention Center. Cannell is coming off a six-round unanimous decision over Hassan Wasswa on June 12 of this year in Nova Scotia.
Other locals on the card include Baltimore middleweight Devin Butcher (1-0) who will face Troy Nelson of Columbus, OH (0-5). Also, DC cruiserweight Andre Ward and Baltimore cruiser Walter Tyler will make their pro debuts against one another.
We're also scheduled to get a look at undefeated 18-year-old Vero Beach, FL junior middleweight prospect Bobby "The Prodigy" Bryant (8-0, six KO's). Bryant will take on veteran Rohan "The Beast" Nanton (7-25-1, six KO's) of Brooklyn, NY in a six-round contest. At least two more bouts are scheduled for the show.
