We are getting late word on two successful nights for Beltway Boxers over this weekend.
On Friday, Baltimore cruiserweight Travis Reeves scored a big win in the walkout bout at Dover Downs Hotel and Casino. Reeves scored a first-round TKO over previously undefeated Lamont Singletary of Dover. This was the same card that Dusty Hernandez Harrison and Alex Guerrero appeared on. Here's how reporter JR Jowett of SecondsOut.com described the action.
"The muscular underdog (Reeves) took it straight to the equally imposing favorite and just outslugged him on the inside. Finally, Singletary was drilled by a wicked straight right that sent him reeling to the ropes. Travis pounced and proceeded to open up when suddenly Johnson stepped in and waved the bout over,at 1:33. Lamont thought it was just a break and was stunned when he realized he'd lost! The angry fans booed vigorously."
Reeves is now 3-2 and scored his first pro knockout with the win. Singletary is now 6-1, three KO's.
Also on Friday, DC light heavyweight Joe Jones III won by first-round TKO over Jimmie Speight of Wilson, NC Friday night in Raleigh, NC. Jones is now 2-0, two KO's.
