September 27 Is Championship Saturday Along The Beltway!

We will conclude what will be a VERY busy September of boxing along the Beltway with two championship contests that will be held in separate locations on Saturday, September 27.

Undefeated WIBA Welterweight champion Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson of Ashburn, VA will make the fourth defense of her title when she faces Australian Arlene Blencowe in a 10-round contest at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA.

Nelson (10-0-3, one KO) won a 10-round unanimous decision over Nicole Woods on June 28 at Du Burns Arena in Baltimore,MD.

Despite having just four pro bouts, Blencowe (2-2) has held the WIBA Junior Welterweight title and the WBF Welterweight crown.  Blencowe lost her last outing -- an eight-round unanimous decision to Sabrina Ostowari on February 14 in Queensland, Australia.

On the same night at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, undefeated DC welterweight Dusty Hernandez Harrison will face veteran Hector "Hurricane" Munoz of Albuquerque, NM in a 10-rounder for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Welterweight title.

Harrison (23-0, 12 KO's) is coming off an eight-round unanimous decision victory over Wilfredo Acuna on June 14 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Munoz (23-13-1, 15 KO's) has faced some top-flight competition in his 12-year career including, Shawn Porter, Mike Jones, Jermall Charlo, Danny O'Connor and Hector Camacho, Jr.  Munoz scored a first-round knockout over winless Fidel Zazueta on June 14 in Guasave, Sinaloa, Mexico.

We will give you details on the undercards for both bouts as soon as we get the information.

I know the Harrison fans are happy to see him fight here in DC again. This time they will have the chance to see him fight for another WBC title in his hometown. I think this will be another fight that he will win.
