Here is the seven-bout lineup and scalewatch for the Jeter Promotions/RBA Promotions card on Saturday, April 26 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA:
In the main event, Stevensville, MD middleweight Tony "Mo Better" Jeter defends his WBC Fecarbox Middleweight title against Guillermo "Bald" Valdes of Miami, FL. Jeter (16-4-1, 11 KO's) makes his return after his second-round knockout loss to Patrick Nielsen on February 15 in Denmark. Valdes (12-5, three KO's) takes this bout on 24 hours notice and will be trying to break a four-bout losing streak. Valdes has not fought since being stopped in the fourth round by Dusty Hernandez Harrison on August 23 in Dover, DE.
Jeter weighed in at 160 pounds, Valdes arrived in the area after Friday's weigh-in and will hit the scales Saturday morning.
The co-feature is an eight-round contest for the vacant Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) All-Americas Junior Welterweight title. Undefeated Todd "White Lightning" Wilson of Alexandria, VA will battle Marlon Lewis of Memphis, TN. Wilson (15-0, four KO's) is coming off a four-round unanimous decision win over Reggie Nash on October 5 at the ABC Complex. Lewis, like Jeter's opponent, Valdes, was last in the ring against Dusty Harrison in Dover, DE and was stopped in the first round on November 22.
Wilson weighed in at 140 pounds while Marlon Lewis came in at 134.
In a six-round contest, "The Pride of Alexandria" Brandon Quarles will take on Norman "The Shadow" Allen of Laurel, MD in a junior middleweight contest. Quarles (12-2-1, five KO's) has scored first-round TKOs in his last two contests. Allen (6-10, three knockouts) will be trying to break a nine-bout losing streak.
Quarles hit the scales at 157 while Allen weighed 152.
As we mentioned a few days ago, undefeated Bowie, MD super middleweight "The King's Son" Jerry Odom (10-0, 10 KO's) will take on Edgar Perez of Chicago, IL (5-8, three KO's). The bout will now, however, be a four-round encounter.
Odom weighed in at 171 while Perez hit the scales at 172.
In what could be an interesting four-round junior welterweight bout, "The Baby-Faced Assassin" Yurii Polischuk of Lanham, MD will battle with DC's Benjamin "Wildcat" Olinga. Polischuk (3-1-1, two KO's) scored a third-round TKO over Kevin Womack, Jr. in his last bout on March 7 in Fort Washington, MD. Olinga (1-4) is coming off a four-round TKO loss to Rolando Chinea on November 23 in Baltimore, MD. Olinga has made it to the fourth round in all of his five contests. However, he has been stopped in the fourth twice.
Both men weighed in at 141 pounds.
In other four-round contests, junior Bobby Gunn, Jr. of Hackensack, NJ (1-0, one KO) will take on the debuting Gabriel Smallwood of Delaware. Gunn made his pro debut on March 15 at the ABC Sports Complex and scored a first-round TKO over Delvin Gist. Gunn weighed in at 154 while Smallwood came in at 160.
Also, Lawrence, MA heavyweight Jean Pierre Augustin (2-0) will face debuting Joseph Bowman of North Carolina. Augustin, normally a cruiserweight, weighed in at 202 pounds while Bowman tipped the scales at 222.
