Recio Battles Veteran Felix; Trussell Takes On Williamson; Davis Returns Against Johnson April 12 in Baltimore!

We've told you a little bit about the Hardwork Promotions card on Saturday, April 12 at the Patapsco Arena in Baltimore, MD.  Three bouts have been added to that card and one in particular, could be a very interesting one.

Undefeated rookie junior middleweight "The Cuban Assassin" Larry Recio of Landover, MD has been added to the card and he will take on veteran Jose Felix of Albuquerque, NM in a four-round encounter.

Recio (4-0, three KO's) has stopped his last three opponents, including a second-round stoppage of Mike Santiago on March 7 at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD.  However, if you combine the amount of bouts of Recio's previous four opponents, they would not have close to the experience of Felix (11-14-2, four KO's).

Felix steps into the ring for the first time since November of 2012 when he was stopped in the first round against Quatavious Cash in Atlanta, GA.  The last victory for Felix came in the Beltway region when he scored a fifth-round TKO over Tony Jeter in Arlington, VA in December of 2011.

Also, Baltimore middleweight Jeremy Trussell returns to action as he battles Shakee Williamson of Danville, VA in a four-round encounter.  Trussell ( 8-0, six KO's) scored a first-round TKO over Jeremy Boardwine on March 1 in Lynchburg, VA.  Williamson (1-1, one KO) returns for the first time since March of 2011 when he stopped Mike Sawyer in the second round in Ransom, WVA.

Bowie, MD junior welterweight DeAndre Davis (1-0, one KO) returns for the first time since making his pro debut in January 2013 when he faces the debuting Christopher Johnson of Chicago, IL.  Davis stopped Coy Lambert in the first round in Fort Washington, MD.

Why is Trussell 8-0 fighting a guy 1-1, how in the world did Pat Panela approved that fight. He picks and choose and is not right.

Why dont you stop crying and ask Panella himself? Trussell fights whoever his manager puts in front of him. With his power he will probably knockt this guy out anyway so who cares, looks like they are moving him well, sort of like Dusty

Gentleman Shakee Williamson actually asked for this fight or at least his people did. So seek and he shall find.

Williamson has fought at a higher weight in the past and is coming down. He lost by TKO in three to Dalemalik Robeson-El in Baltimore a few years back and did not embarrass himself, although you never know how time away affects a fighter. We will see. However, Trussell and Greg Hackett fought to a close decision last month and only a knockdown of Hackett with less than a minute left in the bout prevented it from being a draw. This could turn bout to be an interesting bout, hard to say. But I see no problem with the approval.

What a hater. I'm Jeremy's brother and if you got something to say, say it at the fight. I'm in his corner with the dreads. We don't do all this internet talking.
