Card Complete For Ogden Foundation Charity Event November 6 in Cockeysville!

The boxing card is complete for the Jonathan Ogden Foundation charity event on Thursday, November 6 at Martin's Valley Mansion in Cockeysville, MD.

WIBA Welterweight champion Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson of Ashburn, VA will headline the card in a four-round non-title contest against Lucretia Meacham of Pine Bluff, AK.

For Nelson (11-0-3, one KO), this will be the first of two scheduled contests in a nine-day period as she is slated to defend her WIBA title on November 15 in Fairfax, VA.  Nelson is coming off a tough 10-round split decision victory over Arlene Blencowe on September 27 in Springfield, VA.  Meacham (3-12, one KO) will be looking to break a four-bout losing streak.

There will be a second women's bout on the card as "Little Miss Tyson" Melissa St. Vil of Brooklyn, NY will battle Ashleigh Curry of Saint Joseph, MO in a six-round junior welterweight bout.

St. Vil (6-1-2) is the current IWBF Welterweight champion and is coming off a six-round unanimous decision over Dominga Olivo on May 10 in Whitehall, NY.  Curry (6-8-3, one KO) is unbeaten in her last three contests including a four-round unanimous decision over Meacham on October 11 in Saint Joseph.

Also on the card, Baltimore, MD cruiserweight Willie "For Real" Williams will take on the returning Michael "Nice" Gutrick of La Plata, MD in a four-round bout.  Williams (13-8-2, four KO's) will try to bounce back from a first-round TKO loss to Frankie Filippone on June 28 in Baltimore.  Gutrick (3-7, two KO's) battles for the first time since December of 2006.

Lynchburg, VA middleweight Joshua "Juice" Robertson will face James Robinson of York, PA in a four-round encounter.  Robertson (7-6, two KO's) will try to build on a four-round decision win over Nathan Petty on October 4 in Lynchburg.  Robinson (1-1-2) is coming off a four-round split decision loss to Eric Harris on February 1 in Elizabeth, PA.

In a six-round bout, undefeated Lancaster, PA lightweight Rolando "Iron Man" Chinea will battle Evan Woolsey of Kansas.  Chinea stopped Osnel Charles in the third round in his last outing on July 25 of Wyomissing, PA .  This will be Chinea's fifth trip to Maryland.  Chinea made his pro debut at this very same event in 2011.  Woolsey (2-4) suffered a no contest verdict with DeAnthony Bonner on September 26 in Mesquite, TX.
