The GH3 Promotions card scheduled for Friday, October 25 has had a change of venue. Originally, the card was slated to be at the Charles Houston Recreation Center in Alexandria, VA. The card will now be held at the ABC Sports Arena in Springfield, VA.
This will be a quick return of boxing to the ABC Sports Arena, which hosted a card on October 5. Scheduled to appear on this card are Beltway Boxers "The King's Son" Jerry Odom, Gervonta "Rambo" Davis, Cecil McCalla and Glen Dezurn.
Antoine Douglas was slated to headline the card but the cut along the left eye he suffered on the October 5 card will prohibit him from competing on this card.
Also scheduled to participate on this card are undefeated Norfolk, VA heavyweight Dorsett Barnwell as well as New Jersey boxers "Paterson Boy" Rickey Edwards and "Apollo Kidd" John Thompson.
GH3 Promotions is the group from New Jersey that has signed a number of Beltway Boxers to promotional contracts including Odom, Douglas and Kelly. The matchmaker for this card is a local guy that has done well for himself throughout the boxing world in Eric Bottjer. Bottjer cut his teeth in boxing in the Beltway region doing similar work to what this blog is about -- no computers when we started this. Bottjer eventually moved on to matchmaking where he has worked with some of the great promoters in the game including Don King.
We'll have more details on this card when they become available.
