One of the feature bouts on the Saturday, June 16 Keystone Boxing card is set. Undefeated Suitland, MD cruiserweight Venroy "Hard Work" July will take on Justin "The Lumberjack" Howes of Buckhannon, WVA in a six-round contest at Du Burns Arena in Baltimore, MD.
July (10-0-2, four KO's) last fought on February 25 and scored a second-round TKO over Zeferino Albino in Millersville, MD. Howes (13-2, 11 KO's) broke a two-bout losing streak in his last outing when he stopped Dan Shull in the third round on January 28 in Clarksburg, WVA. That was Howes's first bout in a year.
Three other bouts are signed for the card. Baltimore, MD junior welterweight Kevin "The Scarecrow" Womack, Jr. (3-0, one KO) will face veteran Nalo Leal of Airway Heights, Washington (4-15-1) in a four-round encounter.
