Nicklow, Sigmon, Stevenson, Trussell Hit Scales in Lynchburg!

A number of Beltway Boxers weighed in for the Saturday, March 1 RBA Promotions/Club Toe-to-Toe Promotions card at the Boonsboro Ruritan Club in Lynchburg, VA.

Baltimore's Jessie "The Beast" Nicklow (24-3-3, eight KO's) and Lynchburg, VA's own Scott "Cujo" Sigmon (23-5, 12 KO's) both weighed 160 pounds for their 10-round rematch.

Also, James "Keep 'Em Sleepin'" Stevenson of Baltimore (20-0, 13 KO's) hit the scales at 147 pounds for his six-round contest against veteran Andre Baker of Lumberton, NC (10-39-2, two KO's).  Baker came in at 146 1/2.

Baltimore's Jeremy "The Truth" Trussell (7-0, five KO's) weighed in at 167 pounds for his four-rounder with the debuting Jeremy Boardwine of Lynchburg.  Boardwine, who has had a number of MMA bouts, came in at 170 1/2 and will have to lose a couple of pounds to get to the super middleweight limit of 168 for this contest.

I think James is a very good figher and he is 20-0. He doesn't need to fight these 11-42,11-32 and 10-39 kind of guys anymore.

Don't you want to get tested and see how good you real are?

Look at this guy Lomachenko who is fighting for a title tomorrow night. This kid is confident and want see if he can beat the world champion. Big balls !!

James def needs higher quality opponents

I remember when Sigmon was bad mouthing Justin Ridgway and Ridgway went to Lynchburg and called him out in front of his hometown crowd and Sigmon withered up like a little puppy and never bad mouthed Ridgway again.

Lomanchenko also was a two time Olympian I think, that's what he is fighting like this.

Brian said...

James is a good prospect being built properly

that's weird I wonder why a cruiserweight with like 5 career fights would be calling out a boxer fighting at 160? Smart of Sigmon not to respond to a punk

Hey Brian, ima give you a more detailed description of Lomanchenco;Olympic Gold Metalist in 2008 and 2012.He has close to 400 amateur wins and only ONE(count it!!) loss.He avenged that ONE loss TWICE!!He also has several amateur world championships under his belt.Apparently the guy can fight and his management team knows it for sure.

James Stevenson has not fought on a consistent basis and this has not helped his cause. Yes, James is talented but he has not been tested. Time to step up a little.

Brian said...

I think that was my point on the Russian kid. Plenty of experience, and why rush jame

Vasyl Lomachenko is Ukraninan and went 396-1 as an armateur and won two olympic gold medals and two world championships and avenged his only loss twice. James might need to be pushed a little more because he is already 30 years old, don't wanna wait till it's too late. It's not like he is young like Dusty who is only 19 and has plenty of time to develop. If he waits much longer he will be past his prime.

Oh,....so now you got afterthoughts Brian??Say what you mean and mean what you say.Bottom line,.....to talk about Lomanchenko and Stevenson in the same breath is like mixing apples with oranges. Resume and management are the keys to their success!!!!

Brian said...

I didn't compare them at all someone made reference to Stevenson stepping up like the Russian and I was saying why should he,

Anonymous said...

Stevenson may just as well step up asap,......I believe the move would make him better; he has adjusted to winning sparingly of late but he's a grown man, get it in James and keep going from there Champ!!

Theres nothing smart about Sigmon but his mouth. Ridgway was 165 pounds at the time and only had one fight and that was a win over a guy that was 0-4.The point being made here is this guy has a lot of mouth when he can pay opponets off but when the threat of a real fighter confronts him he cowered up like a bitch on the rag.This guy is a pretender not a contender and is taking advantage
of the people of his area by making them think he is something he's not. If you come back with another response like the previous one I will tell everybody about the conversation in the hotel room and the money that exchanged hands you coward.

You got serious reading comprehension problems. Brian said something...and then you basically repeated him in an attempt to try to prove him wrong. Not realizing that you were saying the same thing.

"James Stevenson has not fought on a consistent basis and this has not helped his cause. Yes, James is talented but he has not been tested. Time to step up a little." This statement is true and cannot be disputed.

I heard that James "keep em bored" Stevenson's last opponent got knocked out in his last boxing match against a guy who didn't even have any arms!
