The first weekend of October will bring us a lot of boxing. We've already told you about the October 4 card in DC. There's another card on Saturday, October 5 as pro boxing returns to the ABC (Annandale Boxing Club) Sports Complex located on 6728 Commercial Drive in Springfield, VA.
Also returning to the promotional duties is Beltway Boxing legend "Sugar" Han Kim. The former Virginia State Welterweight champion is bringing a card that features undefeated Alexandria, VA junior welterweight Todd "White Lightning" Wilson in his first bout of 2013. Wilson (14-0, four KO's) hasn't fought since his six-round unanimous decision over John Willoughby on June 23, 2012 in Arlington, VA. No word yet on Wilson's opponent.
Also slated to be on this card will be undefeated Baltimore, MD featherweight Gervonta "Rambo" Davis. The 2012 National Golden Gloves champion (4-0, four KO's) scored a dominant second-round TKO over Rafael Casias in front of his home fans at the Coppin State University Physical Education Complex on July 20.
Ironically, we also saw Davis's scheduled opponent for this four-round encounter -- Marquise Pierce of Phillipsburg, NJ -- on that same July 20th card. Pierce (1-2) lost a four-round unanimous decision to Glen Dezurn. Pierce has fought once since that contest and he lost to Ronell Green by third-round TKO on August 16 in Wheeling, WVA.
Also slated to be on the card are two Springfield, VA boxers -- undefeated junior welterweight Edgar "The Tiger" Torres (3-0-1, two KO's) and debuting middleweight Shawn Carter.
