Hurd-Chatman Matchup Is Co-Feature on January 17 Rosecroft Card; Nicholson Off Card Replaced By Richmond's I. Aleem!

One more bout has been added to the Keystone Boxing card on Friday, January 17 at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD and it should be an exciting one.

Undefeated Accokeek, MD junior middleweight "Swift" Jarrett Hurd will take a nice step up in competition when he faces Chris Chatman of San Diego, CA in a six-round encounter.

Hurd (10-0, six KO's) is coming off his second-round knockout of George Armenta on December 6 at Rosecroft -- the Beltway Boxing Knockout of the Year for 2013.  However, Chatman (11-2-1, five KO's) should be Hurd's most dangerous foe to date.  Chatman won an eight-round unanimous decision over Thomas Falowo on July 27 in Lincoln, RI.

Chatman's resume is impressive as he has only competed three times against boxers with under-.500 records and his only losses are to Jermell Charlo and now-WBO Junior Middleweight champ Demetrius Andrade.  This will be the eighth time that Chatman has faced an undefeated boxer -- he is 4-2-1, three knockouts in that stretch.

In related news on the card, undefeated middleweight Demond Nicholson is now off the card and will not face Timothy Hall of Athens, GA.  No reason has been given for Nicholson's departure from the card.

Replacing Nicholson will be undefeated Richmond, VA middleweight Immanuwel "The Dream" Aleem (6-0, three KO's) in the six-round contest against Hall.

Aleem is no stranger to the Beltway region as he fought here numerous times as a highly-touted amateur and made his first three pro appearances in the region.  Aleem also trains at Club One Fitness in Millersville, MD.  Aleem is coming off a fourth-round TKO over Joseph Benjamin on October 5 in Columbia, SC.

What bout is the other half of the co feature? Is it the Reed-Marquez fight? This bout should be the stand alone main event. By far best matchup on the card. Marquez hasn't fought in almost two years. Great job with this card by keystone! It looks like it has the potential to be just as good as the card September 7th that was named card of the year.

It would be Reed-Marquez.

Hurd aint bullshitting around. he will fight anyone-anytime-anywhere. not like demondie nickolsin who pulled out of fights over n over again. Hurd should be main event alone, marquez usully fights at 130 and not fought in 2 years. a damn joke. reed needs to step it up to. hurd will be the face of the dmv.

Whoever wrote the above statement should stop. Hurd is stepping up as other DMV fighter's are. Nicholson is a very good fighter who has not ducked anyone. I agree that Hurd 's fight appears to have more fire knowing that both fighters are well ranked by boxrec compare to reed's fight. Let's show love for all the fighters and a good line up for next Friday. I think Reed and Hurd will put on a great show regardless of who is main event

Hurd is taking a big step up, but the main event was already stated . Fighting a guy like Hurd is fighting deserves much respect!!

Demond was promised a fighter with an MMA background not a stellar opponent with a 7-15 record. A keystone set up !

After watching a video Wilbur said the guy was too muscular . He said his chest was too defined and his nipples were black. Mandingo traits

Demond's dad had a Jerry Odom flashback and called keystone screaming the guy was too old for the 21-22 division

Who are Larry Recio and Tyrone Wright fighting on Friday?

Gary Digital Williams said...

Recio will take on Ibrahim Shabazz of New Jersey (2-2-1). No word on Wright's opponent yet.

Swift is going to shock the world just watch!

Gary Digital Williams said...

Recio's opponent has changed again. He will now face the debuting Malcolm Green of Wilmington, NC.

Tyrone Wright is no longer on the card.
