The Saturday, October 5 Sugar Han Promotions card to be held at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield,VA is coming together.
Todd "White Lightning" Wilson will headline the card in his first contest as a welterweight when he faces veteran Reggie "Two-Gun" Nash of Grand Rapids, MI in a four-round contest. Wilson (14-0, four KO's) is trying out the welterweight waters in this contest but there is no guarantee he will stay there. Nash (10-34-1, two KO's) will be looking to break a seven-bout losing streak. Included in that streak was a first-round KO loss to Dusty Hernandez Harrison in July of 2012.
The co-feature will be a six-round middleweight contest featuring undefeated Antoine "Action" Douglas of Burke, VA against Marcus Brooks of Fort Benning, GA. Douglas (9-0, six KO's) is coming off a six-round unanimous decision over Edgar Perez on August 23 in Verona, NY. Brooks (7-15, three KO's) lost a four-round unanimous decision to Antowyan Aikens on the same night in Dover, DE.
Springfield, VA junior welterweight Edgar "The Tiger" Torres returns to action for the first time since December of 2012 when he faces the debuting Greg Thomas of Philadelphia, PA. Torres (3-0-1, two KO's) has not fought since winning a four-round majority decision over Tommy Ayers, Jr. on December 1 in Winchester, VA.
In a battle of debuting middleweights Shawn Carter of Springfield will take on Gamikey Woods of North Carolina.
Also on the card, undefeated Hollywood, CA welterweight Sukhrab Shidaev (4-0, four KO's) will battle Winston-Salem, NC's Kevin "Dog Pound" Carter (11-68-1, three KO's) in a six-round contest. Shidaev, a native of Grozny, Russia, is coming off a third-round TKO over Robert Hill on July 6 in Leyton, UT. Carter will be looking to break a 10-bout losing streak.
Undefeated Norfolk, VA heavyweight Dorsett Barnwell (10-0, five KO's) is also scheduled to be on the card against an opponent still to be determined. Barnwell last fought on August 23 and won by third-round TKO over Marlon Hayes in Verona, NY.
DC heavyweight Danny Kelly was originally slated to be on the card but he will not participate.
