Here's an update on the two Beltway Boxers who will be on the Friday, January 17th card at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, TN.
Undefeated Burke, VA middleweight Antoine "Action" Douglas (11-0, seven KO's) will be a part of the ShoBox quadruple-header telecast when he takes on Marquis Davis of Tampa, FL(8-0-2, five KO's) in an eight-round contest that we have just learned is for the interim WBC Fecarbox Middleweight title.
Yes, the Beltway's own Tony Jeter still holds that title -- he has not relinquished it. So why this is for an interim title (and why is there an "interim" Fecarbox title) is beyond me. By the way, there is some pretty big news concerning Jeter that I hope to bring to you in the next few days.
Undefeated Bowie, MD super middleweight "The King's Son" Jerry Odom (7-0, seven first-round KO's) will head into the six-round contests on the non-televised undercard as he faces Demetrius Walker of Kansas City, MO (6-2-1, four KO's). Walker has lost his last two bouts, both six-round unanimous decisions.
