BATB has learned that a very exciting all-Beltway bout is slated for the Keystone Boxing card on Saturday, January 12 at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD. Undefeated Forestville, MD junior middleweight Alantez "Slyaza" Fox will battle "Relentless" Julius Kennedy in a six-round contest.
Fox (8-0-1, four KO's) is coming off a first round TKO over Jimmy LeBlanc on December 8 at the Washington Convention Center in DC. Kennedy (7-2-1, three KO's, one NC) hasn't fought since his no contest against Zain Shah on September 10, 2011 at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA, a bout that was originally a win for Shah before the decision was overturned.
This will be Fox's first bout against a fellow Beltway Boxer while Kennedy will be facing a local for the fifth time. Kennedy, however has yet to gain a victory against a Beltway Boxer, losing to Jason Champion and Scott Sigmon and drawing with Jessie Nicklow prior to his no contest against Shah.
