The one weekend in October where there won't be any pro cards in the Beltway will be the weekend the amateur cards will take over. There will be two amateur cards taking place on Saturday, October 12.
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, there will be a card where the proceeds will go to knocking out this dreaded disease. The card will take place at the Hagerstown Boxing Club, located at 245 Prospect Avenue in Hagerstown, MD and it will be an all-female event as the club is working with well-known female boxing promoter "The Fightlady" Wanda Bruce in putting on this event. H-Town Fight Promotions will be the promoter of record.
The card is slated to begin at 1 PM and tickets are $15 for general admission and kids under 10 are five dollars. Call 240-367-0600.
Over in Laurel, MD there will be an outdoor card at the Alice B. McCullough Field, located at 8th Street and Montgomery Street. The card is being presented by Crawford Training and Fitness and the Laurel Boys and Girls Club. The card will get underway at 3 PM and it is free to the public.
Just a reminder: the amateur card that was slated to take place in Baltimore on October 12 at Myers Pavilion has been postponed.
