Hi again from the ABC Sports Arena in Springfield, VA for the RBA Promotions "Bulldog Brawl VIII." This is a pro-am card and there are three amateur bouts and three pro bouts. Of course, the card is headlined by the Virginia State Middleweight title bout between Brandon Quarles of Alexandria and Zain "Tiger" Shah of Centreville.
Actually, there is only one other Beltway Boxer on the card tonight and that will be "The Baby-Faced Assassin" Yurii Polischuk (1-1, one KO) who will take on the debuting Latorie Woodberry of Roanoke, VA in a four-round welterweight contest. There will also be a cruiserweight contest between Jamil Ramseur of Brooklyn, NY (0-2) and Gilbert Jacobs of SC (listed at 1-1, one KO).
There are three amateur bouts on the card -- one has just ended. Francisco Bustos of Champion Boxing and Fitness defeated Zach Steel of Raw Assassin Gym in a 165 pound Novice contest. Also on the amateur portion will be Mauricio Vargas of Henderson Hall Gym in Arlington, VA taking on Rick Krogman of Newport News Boxing in Newport News, VA in a 180 pound Novice bout. The third bout will be at super heavyweight as George Harris III of Henderson Hall will take on Christopher Laws of the C-4 Boxing Club in Hampton, VA.
We will give you the results of the two remaining amateur bouts when the pro bouts get underway.
