A couple of news briefs:
Landover, MD junior welterweight Cornelius Whitlock returns to action on Friday, June 28 at the Veterans Coliseum in Jacksonville, FL. Whitlock (1-0-1, one KO) last fought on January 31 and scored a third-round TKO over Shakur Jackson in Staten Island, NY. Whitlock will face the debuting Adriano Capio in a four-round contest.
You remember on June 8 when Lisa Garland of York, SC won her bout via eight-round TKO against Kerri Hill at EchoStage Lounge in DC. You may also remember our exclusive audio interview with Garland in which she tearfully mentioned that she was going to see a surgeon about some tumors they found in her chest. Well, we've kept in touch with Garland and we are happy to report that Garland tells us that the doctors do NOT believe the tumors are cancerous. Garland will have surgery next week to have the tumors removed!
