There is a lot of movement with the Keystone Boxing card slated for Saturday, January 12th at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD. The big news is that undefeated DC welterweight Dusty Harrison will not be on the card.
As Harrison told BATB in the most recent Post-Fight Wrap-Up, the camp wanted to step-up the competition. However, finding that competition proved to be difficult, so Harrison will wait until the February card at the Washington Convention Center.
As of right now, the previously announced six-round matchup between Beltway junior middleweights Alantez "Slyaza" Fox of Forestville, MD and "Relentless" Julius Kennedy of Baltimore, MD is the main event, but that could change, according to Keystone officials.
Two other bouts are set for this card. District Heights, MD super featherweight Renaldo "Misunderstood" Gaines returns to action in a four-round contest against Baltimore's Darrell Martin. Gaines (3-1) is coming off a four-round unanimous decision over Alan Beeman on November 3 at the Washington Convention Center. Martin (4-13, one KO) will be trying to break a seven-bout losing streak.
Also, "The King's Son" Jerry Odom of DC (1-0, one KO, one NC) will take on Anthony Madden of Biloxi, MS (0-2) in a four-round super middleweight bout.
Beltway Boxers Kevin "K-Smoov" Rivers, Jr., Dillon "The Stalker" Hayman and "Swift" Jarrett Hurd are all slated to be on the card. No word yet on opponents.
There will also be a pro debut on the card. Palmer Park, MD cruiserweight Mario Murphy is slated to battle against Lamont Capers of Hawley, PA (1-0).
(Updated as DeAndre Davis and Anthony Cintron are no longer on the card.)
