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.
