Here's a recap from the RBA Promotions Card at the Smith Gymnasium on the Fort Myer/Henderson Hall Joint Military Base in Arlington, VA:
Fairfax, VA junior welterweight Todd "White Lightning" Wilson remains undefeated with a six-round unanimous decision over John Willoughby of Selma, AL. Wilson won despite possibly breaking his left hand in the second round and suffering a cut along his right eye in the third. Wilson is now 14-0, four KO's while John Willoughby is now 3-13, two KO's.
Staunton, VA junior welterweight Christian "The Real Deal" Steele won a four-round majority decision over Juan "The Savior" Rodriguez. Steele won by two scores of 39-37 to even his record to 3-3, one KO while Rodriguez loses his second straight bout at Smith Gymnasium and falls to 4-2-1, four KO's.
Upper Marlboro, MD heavyweight Duane Mobley recovered from a first-round knockdown to stop Baltimore, MD's Kevin "Journeyman" Johnson at 1:36 of the third round. Mobley is now 3-0, two KO's while Johnson is now 3-5, two KO's.
Richmond, VA super middleweight Immanuel Aleem made his pro debut a successful one with a first-round TKO of Lynchburg, VA's Jess "Thunder" Noriega. Aleem used a punishing body shot to stop Noriega at 2:04 of the first. Noriega is 0-3.
Hillcrest Heights, MD light heavyweight "The Honorable" Mark Baltimore won his pro debut, stopping Fernando "El Matador" Alvarez of Fairfax, VA at 2:43 of the first. Baltimore dropped Alvarez twice, including a vicious left uppercut-right hook combo that stopped the bout. Alvarez is now 1-1.
We have a video-only edition of the BATB Post-Fight Wrap-Up show with myself and fellow DC Boxing Hall of Famer "The Fight Doctor" Jerome Spears. There was background music that was louder than we thought but I think you'll be able to hear us and our guests -- Immanuel Aleem, promoter Dr. Richard Ashby and Todd Wilson.
