For those of you making your summer plans, you might want to make them around these dates for July, in particular, will be a big month for pro boxing in the Beltway region.
Remember, we have this coming Saturday, June 15 at the Washington Convention Center in DC for the Top Flight Promotions card and Saturday, June 22 has Hardwork Promotions at the Frederick Fight Club in Frederick, MD.
As we move into July, we have Saturday, July 13 at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD with a Keystone Boxing card that is slated to include "Swift" Jarrett Hurd, Mike "Yes Indeed" Reed and "Mr. Amazing" Greg Newby.
We've already told you about the Saturday, July 20 card at Coppin State University in Baltimore, MD that is slated to feature Gervonta "Rambo" Davis and Tyrieshia "Lady Tiger" Douglas. We are also hearing that this will be a pro-am card that is slated to feature the likes of Joey Veazey, Lorenzo "Truck" Simpson and Mia "Killer Bee" Ellis.
Right now, the only pro show we know about in August is a Jeter Promotions card that is tentatively slated for August 3 at Club One Fitness. Both Tony "Mo Better" Jeter and Phil Jackson Benson are scheduled to defend their WBC Fecarbox titles on the card.
Looking ahead to September, we can confirm that there will be a Jimmy Lange Boxing Promotions card on Saturday, September 21 at the George Mason University Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA.
What we can't completely confirm is who is going to be on that card. Right now, it looks like WBC Women's Middleweight champion Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson will have a title bout on the card and Todd "White Lightning" Wilson is slated to participate. We can't even confirm that Jimmy Lange himself will be on the card as he is still recovering from knee surgery. We've been told he is back in the gym but whether he will be ready by September 21 remains a mystery.
