Here is the scale watch for the Jonathan Ogden Foundation Benefit Card at Martin's Valley Mansion in Cockeysville, MD:

(WIBA Welterweight title bout)

Jarrell Miller 267 vs. Willie Chisolm 235 1/2

Gerome Quigley 150 1/2 vs. Damian Butler 149

Brian Meadows 151 vs. Elmer Vera 151

Jeremy Trussell 169 1/2 vs. On'rey Towns 163 1/2

A number of changes on this card.  Brian Meadows is from Owensboro, KY and Elmer Vera is from Queens, NY.  Someone's O is looking to go as both men are seeking their first win.  Meadows is 0-4 while Vera is 0-3.  Towns is from Wilson, NC and he is 0-2.

No word why the bouts featuring locals Alexandru Marin and Benjamin Olinga were scratched from the card.

The card will be broadcast live on beginning at 7:50 ET. We will also be blogging live from the event.

What a shame to put on a crap show when you have people who come to watch but probably aren't big boxing fans. They come to donate and boxing could use more fans like that. Give them their monies worth.

There is not a huge budget for these types of shows. They can't pay for so-called "marquee" cards. It does put more pressure on the boxers to perform, though.

Hey Anonymous, not sure about you but the women's title fight made the night a blast from a boxing fan's perspective. Did you go? Didn't think so.
