The Keystone Boxing card on Friday, March 7 at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD has a very nice addition to it -- a rematch to one of the more exciting bouts of 2013.
Local welterweights Kevin "The Scarecrow" Womack, Jr. of Baltimore, MD will face "The Baby-Faced Assassin" Yurii Polischuk of Lanham, MD in a six-round rematch of their spirited four-round draw of November 23 in Baltimore.
In the first bout at the Patapsco Arena, the two men had solid moments -- Womack landed very well to the body while Polischuk sent solid shots to the head. The contest was an extremely even contest and, as we said then, it begged for a rematch which we will get on March 7.
Womack (4-3-1, two KO's) has fought one time since the last meeting with Polischuk, losing a four-round unanimous decision to Semajay Thomas on the Lamont Peterson-Dierry Jean undercard on January 25 at the DC Armory in Washington, DC. Polischuk (2-1-1, one KO) has not fought since the Womack contest.
Unfortunately, one other All-Beltway contest slated for the March 7 card has been scrapped. The bout between Zain Shah and George Armenta will not take place as Armenta will not be able to participate. No official reason was given.
