Douglas, McCalla Hit Scales in Oklahoma!

Two undefeated Beltway Boxers are on a card at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, OK on Friday night, May 10.  Middleweight Antoine "Action" Douglas of Burke, VA will take on Coy Witt of Richlands, VA in a six-round matchup.  Douglas (6-0, four KO's) is coming off a second-round knockout of Juan Zapata on April 12 in Whitehall, NY.  Witt (2-3, one KO) will be trying to break a three-bout losing streak.

Also on the card, Randallstown, MD junior middleweight Cecil McCalla returns to action after a more than 10-month absence as he faces Abel "Truth Serum" Perry of Colorado Springs, CO in another six-round bout.  McCalla (15-0, six KO's) has not fought since stopping Andre Baker in the fourth round on June 23 in Greensboro, NC.  Perry (18-6, nine KO's) had won five in a row before losing an eight-round majority decision to Don Mouton on September 28 in Lawton, OK.   This will be Perry's ninth bout in Oklahoma, with all five of his victories in the state coming by knockout.  Perry has lost three times in the state, one by KO.

The boxers hit the scales on Thursday:

Antoine Douglas 159 vs. Coy Witt 159

Cecil McCalla 147 vs. Abel Perry 149

These bouts will be on the undercard of the ShoBox card that will air on Friday night.
