The Keystone Boxing card slated for Saturday, July 13 at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD is starting to come together. The card is slated to have three six-round contests.
Highlighting the card will be the return of Oxon Hill, MD light heavyweight Alexander "The Great" Johnson in a six-round contest. Johnson makes his first appearance in competition since suffering his first pro loss -- an eight-round unanimous decision to Luis Garcia in December of 2011 in Cabazon, CA.
Johnson (12-1, five KO's) was originally scheduled to battle Philadelphia, PA's Taneal Goyco but Goyco has suffered an injury. Another Philly boxer may step in, however. Greg Hackett is slated to make his third straight trip to the Beltway region. Hackett (2-11) fought Jarrett Hurd and Alantez Fox in his last two outings and lost six-round unanimous decisions.
Coming off that victory over Hackett on April 20 at the Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, MD Hurd (6-0, three KO's) returns to action on this card in a six-round bout against veteran Joshua Burns of Garland, TX. Garland (4-15-7, two KO's) will be looking to bounce back after suffering a first-round knockout loss to Kenton Sippio-Cook on April 27 in Austin, TX.
In another six-round contest, Palmer Park, MD super featherweight Kevin "K-Smoov" Rivers, Jr. is slated to take on Cesar Cisneros of Bradenton, FL. Last time out, Rivers (8-0, six KO's) scored a second-round TKO over Rasool Shakoor on June 15 at the Washington Convention Center in DC. This will be Rivers's sixth bout of 2013. Cisneros (3-5-2, one KO) will be trying to break a four-bout winning streak. The last four opponents for Cisneros had a combined won-loss record of 20-2-2.
In four-round contests, Waldorf, MD junior welterweight Mike "Yes, Indeed" Reed returns to action as he faces Roberto Lopez of Kissimmee, FL. Reed (3-0, two KO's) is coming off a four-round unanimous decision win over DeMarcus Rogers on June 15 in DC. After winning four of his first six contests, Lopez (4-5-2, one KO) has lost five in a row, all to undefeated boxers by decision.
DC light heavyweight Greg Newby returns to action in a four-round bout against PJ Cajagas of Franklin Park, IL. Newby (7-0, four KO's) last fought on April 27 and won a six-round unanimous decision over Mark Anderson in Bamberg, SC. Cajagas (0-1-1) will look to bounce back from a four-round unanimous decision loss to Devar Ferhadi on April 20 in Upper Marlboro, MD.
In two debut bouts, Largo, MD's Jerrell "Supa" Scott will take on the equally debuting David Rohn of Chicago, IL in a middleweight contest. Also, Devin Mosley, a cruiserweight from Capitol Heights, MD , will make his boxing debut taking on Santos Martinez of Adrian, MI (2-3, two KO's). Mosley is no stranger to combat competition, sporting a 1-1 record in mixed martial arts. Martinez has not fought since December of 2011.
Also, East Stroudsburg, PA heavyweight Glenn Thomas will battle with Deverine Miner in a four-round contest. Thomas is 0-1. Miner is making his pro debut.
