December 14 Update: Buchanan, Davis and Nicholson Added to Card; Matchups Announced!

There has been a lot of movement on the Madness Boxing card slated for Saturday, December 14 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.  The card has a number of changes, however, some matchups are set.

Oxon Hill, MD super middleweight Alexander "The Great" Johnson is still in the main event and he will face "The White Tiger" Angel Rios of the Bronx, NY in an eight-round contest.  Johnson (14-1, six KO's) is coming off a second-round TKO over Simon Ruvalcaba on August 10 at the Convention Center.

Rios (9-19, six KO's) started his career as a lightweight in 1999 and has fought some familiar names as he has moved up in weight including Nate Campbell, Mike Anchondo, Terrence Crawford, Rod Salka, Dorin Spivey and the Beltway's own James Stevenson. The last bout for Rios was at super middleweight and he lost an eight-round unanimous decision to Willie Fortune on October 17 in Detroit, MI.

One of the big changes on the card is the addition of Capitol Heights, MD super middleweight Henry "Sugarpoo" Buchanan who will face veteran William Gill of Toms River, NJ in a six-round contest.  Buchanan (20-3, 13 KO's) returns to the ring for the first time since losing a 10-round unanimous decision to Shawn Hawk on March 31, 2012 in New Town, ND.

Gill (9-30, seven KO's) has fought a who's who of prospects and contenders in the super middleweight and light heavyweight divisions including David Telesco, Anthony Hanshaw, Jaidon Codrington and Max Alexander.  Gill has also lost three bouts to Beltway Boxer Mike Paschall, one to Carlos Jones, and, if you like comparing won-loss records, Gill also lost a six-round unanimous decision to Alexander Johnson in April of 2010 at the Convention Center.

Also added to the card is undefeated Baltimore, MD featherweight Gervonta "Rambo" Davis who will battle James Franks of Newport News, VA in a six-round battle.  Davis (5-0, five KO's)  is coming off a fourth-round TKO win over Eric Jamar Goodall on October 17 in Bethlehem, PA.  Franks (2-8-1, two KO's) has not fought since losing a four-round decision to Frank Santos De Alba in August of 2011 in Virginia Beach, VA.  Davis will be the fifth Beltway Boxer Franks has faced after losing to Tyrell Samuel, Ron Boyd and Thomas Snow and winning over Andre Nichols.

Laurel, MD super middleweight Demond "D Best At It" Nicholson also returns to action in a four-round contest against Stanley Harvey of Norfolk, VA.  Nicholson (4-0, four KO's) will look to extend his three-bout, first-round knockout streak which included a 57-second knockout of Ayei Lama on November 23 at the Patapsco Arena in Baltimore.  Harvey (1-6, one KO) is facing an undefeated boxer for the fourth straight time.  This includes losses to locals Dillon Hayman and Antoine Douglas.

In other bouts signed for the card, Laurel, MD heavyweight "The Big Ticket" Dwayne McRae will face Franklin "A Cup" Edmondson of Durham, NC in a six-round contest.  McRae (11-3, six KO's) won a four-round unanimous decision over Willie Chisolm on September 28 at the Patapsco Arena in his last outing.

 Edmondson (14-39-1, five KO's) has had a career that spans a 20-year period and includes bouts against a who's who in the light heavyweight, cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions including former world champions Jean-Marc Mormeck and Imanu Mayfield along with former heavyweight contenders Owen Beck and Courage Tshabalala.  Edmondson has also fought locals Floyd Seymour, Courtney Butler and two bouts against former Maryland State Light Heavyweight champion Fabian Garcia.  

In another six-round contest, DC light heavyweight "Mr. Amazing" Greg Newby will take on Philadelphia, PA's Greg "Hot-Shot" Hackett.  Newby (9-0, five KO's) scored a second-round TKO over James Jones on August 10 at the Convention Center.  Hackett (2-13) will face a Beltway Boxer for the fourth time in his last five outings having lost previously to Johnson, Jarrett Hurd and Alantez Fox.

In an all-Beltway four-round bout, DC featherweight Shadeed Floyd will battle Baltimore's Darrell "Bad Azz" Martin.  Both men fought on the last card at the Convention Center on October 26.  Floyd (1-1-1, one KO) fought to a four-round draw against Nuwan Jayakody while Martin (4-16, one KO) dropped a four-round split decision to DC's Joshua "Marvelous Moe" Parker.

Parker (4-0, two KO's) is still looking for an opponent for this card as are undefeated White Plains, MD lightweight Terron "Kid" Grant (7-0, four KO's)  and DC junior welterweight Cornelius "Bodysnatcher" Whitlock (2-0-2 one KO, one NC).  The boxers no longer on the card are locals Kevin Rivers, Jr. and James Stevenson along with Philadelphia, PA boxer Tyrone Brunson.

it's quite obvious that Brian Dillon did not match this card.If he did, we would have seen some decent fights. These bouts are as lopsided as they can get. The venue will be empty!

shut up brian dillon, stop promoting your self as good matchmaker. Everyone knows you got fired from keyston and you aint working now. You aint shit. You dishonest MF

LOL

Brian said...

Well that wasn't me who posted, so sorry on that one. Dishonest not my style. Fired from keystone yup I was. Still working though.

Anonymous said...

why was he fired from Keystone? It aint cool to run it in someones face after gettin fired, like the guy or not, just sayin.

Richard McCombs said...

Whatever the reason Brian is the best match maker to hit the DMV in recent years...he made fights others couldn't make in there dreams. I hope Ross all the best as he did an great Job thus far.

Why do people gets fired from their job? Coming in late to work, absents, turning in the work late ...it can be anything. But most of the time because they get caught lying to their bosses or stealing money.

Anonymous said...

I think this card features good bunches of local fighters. Up and coming young fighters like Gervonte Davis, Greg Newby and Demond Nicholson or experienced fighters like Alexander Johnson and Henry Poo Buchanan. It will be a good boxing night. I am coming out for sure.

Anonymous said...

Ross is a better match maker then brian because he has a better temper brian dillion gets mad and act out like a 8yr old child but his father is the worst ever gene is a blood sucking jew who talks bad about ever promoter but had lamont pearson fight for a world title for 7 thousand and got del matchett punch drunk and countless other!!!

Gary Digital Williams said...

That is a blatant lie about Matchett. Del had a medical condition that forced him to stop. I believe it was an irregular heartbeat. He was never punch drunk.

Anonymous said...

Nice Card I will definitely be in the building

Anonymous said...

Del Matchett is not punch drunk. He has always talked the same way. What does religion have to do with anything? that is just plain hateful.

Brian said...

Yes I was fired. As I was told it was because Ross and I were butting heads on the upcoming card. We had a different vision. That was the reason i was given. It's was their decision and it is final. I certainly hope Ross and Gene continue to do great work in DMV and continue to highlight local fighters.

Now from others I have I heard I spent too much money on the fights, I didn't get along with certain people, now someone made a reference to lying and stealing money and my temper.

Now as far as my temper I have never had an easy time with not getting my way. I make no excuses for that. Lying and stealing is a flat out fabrication.

Anonymous said...

You full as shit brian. Liar, taking money from the fighters and taking money from promoters.

Brian said...

I got nothing to lie about. Boxing contracts are public record. Check them out. Then ask fighters if they got shorted. How do I steal from a promoter?

Anonymous said...

That's true brain I herd the same thing I was so pose to fight a guy for 25k and they told me that they offed 35k so he was going to steal 10stacks from me not a good look brain because if that would had happen you would have got your head hit for sure,,, and only one person knows who this is... You told me good work, after I got done training satrday!!!!!

Everybody come out to see this fight, now this is a very good card I like every fighter on the card and I can't wait to see theses fight they have some style on the card now, it take a real man like Ty Johnson to put on a great card like this , great job brother man great job,and a special S/O to mr juice, for all his help for years that man has got the job done and did his job, boxing is back for the city, fuck yea it's on now

Brian said...

Now if i offered a fight for 25k and it was paying 35k, there is no way I could get that left over money. Now I do get a 10% booking fee from promoters for securing the fight.

al Johnson is a good fighter

Anonymous said...

He's ok but a sugarpoo he will never be, there's only one fighter I seen from this area fight like poo and that's

Gary Digital Williams said...

1. Yes, Buchanan is on the card but it will be a six-rounder not an eight-round bout as I previously posted.

2. Yes, I will be there.

3. This is a nice showcase card and should get us positioned well for 2014.

Gary Digital Williams said...

Let me add that a good number of boxers on this card have been on cards promoted by other promotional groups including Keystone.

They haven't just all been on the same card at one time.

Again, a lot of this has to do with how much the promoter has to spend. To its credit, Madness Boxing has done a great job for many years in putting on event-style shows where a number of quality locals are on the card at the same time. Keystone has done a great job in showcase the Beltway's future.

Brian said...

Gary, its certainly a very busy time for local fighters. Whether you are known fighter or a prospect, there is plenty of shows going on to suit people desires for their viewing.

With Madness, Hardwork, All In, Han Kim, Keystone, Top Flight, Jeter Promotions and the TV show upcoming there are plenty of opportunities for all fighters to get on. Its definitely a fruitful times for the fans and fighters alike.

If Poo is so good why is he not headlining this card or any card for that matter?

Anonymous said...

Although he looks very good in the gym. Poo needs couple fights to shake off the rust since he is been out for year and half He will headline soon,I am already talking with couple promoters about having him on ESPN. Please come out and see him at the Convention Center.
