Four Beltway Boxers Head to Washington..State December 20!

We can only wish this card was in DC, however, four Beltway Boxers will be participating on a card at the Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, WA.  All opponents are to be determined.

DC lightweight Anthony Peterson will be in a 10-round contest.  Peterson (34-1, 22 KO's) last fought on August 9 and scored a first-round TKO over Edgar Riovalle in Brooklyn, NY.

Undefeated Largo, MD middleweight Dominic "Lights Out" Wade returns to action on this card.  Wade (16-0, 11 KO's) won a 10-round unanimous decision over Nick Brinson on June 27 in Las Vegas, NV.

Also on the card will be the return of featherweight world title contender "Mr." Gary Russell, Jr.  This will be the first bout for Russell since his WBO Featherweight title loss to Vasyl Lomachenko on June 21 in Carson, CA.

The card also marks the pro debut of Russell's brother, Antonio, who will box as a bantamweight.  Antonio Russell comes off a stellar amateur career that included winning the 2013 National Golden Gloves championship and being named the most outstanding boxer of the tournament.

The card will be televised by Showtime and hopefully, some of the locals contests will be on the Showtime Extreme channel.
