DC junior welterweight Cornelius Whitlock weighed 145 pounds for their four-round contest on Friday at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, NY. Whitlock's opponent ,Greg Jackson of Philadelphia, PA weighed in at 145 1/2 pounds.
Whitlock (3-1-2, two KO's) will try to bounce back from suffering his first pro loss -- a four-round unanimous decision to Oscar Torres on May 23 at Turning Stone. The last bout for Jackson (3-1-1, one KO) ended in a technical draw on October 25 in North Bergen, NJ when a melee in the crowd stopped his contest with Juan Rodriguez, Jr. in the fourth round.
Due to a change in the card (Hank Lundy missed weight so his bout with Petr Petrov is off), Whitlock's bout will open the telecast at 9 PM ET on ESPN2.
