Normally, we like to preview a card days in advance to tell folks what type of card is taking place so you can buy tickets. However, this has been a rather unique situation.
Tonight, at the Mayflower Hotel in DC, there will be a boxing card. However, the host organization is not selling any tickets to the public and no media will be allowed to attend the card.
The boxing card is part of a three-day corporate summit being held by Alarm.com, a Tysons Corner, VA-based home security company. It is a private event. The boxing is being promoted by long-time Beltway promoter Ollie Dunlap and the matchmaker is JD Brown.
The card will be headlined by former WBO Junior Welterweight champion DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley (39-21-1, 23 KOs ) as he faces Javier Garcia of Oxnard, CA (10-2-2, nine KO's) in an eight round bout. The co-feature is a six-round rematch between local cruiserweights Andre Ward (1-1-3, one KO) and Mario "Bazooka" Flores (3-1-1, two KO's).. The two battled to a four-round draw on October 27 at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA.
Also on the four-bout card, DC welterweight Benjamin "Wildcat" Olinga (1-2) faces Cornelius Whitlock of Baltimore, MD (0-0-2) and Alexandria, VA junior middleweight Yurii Polischuk (1-1, one KO) will take on Alberto Delgado (0-0-1) of Roanoke, VA.
Once again, there are no public tickets sold to the event and neither myself, Juan Marshall or anyone else in the media will be allowed to cover the card. As soon as we get results, we will pass them on to you.
