Boxing Returns To Springfield March 28!

Jeter Promotions and RBA Promotions combine once again for another boxing card on Saturday, March 28 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA.

The main event for the card has already been signed.  Undefeated Montgomery Village, MD super welterweight Gerome Quigley will battle grizzled veteran Richard "Tiger" Lee Hall of Rocky Mount, NC in a six-round contest for the Virginia State title.

Quigley (6-0, five KO's) scored a second-round TKO over Norman Allen on January 17 at the Washington Convention Center in DC.  Hall (10-22-3, six KO's) recently returned to boxing after a five-year hiatus, losing a six-round unanimous decision to Christian Dominguez on June 7 in Greensboro, NC.  However, Hall should be a very familiar name to Beltway Boxing fans because he has competed against numerous local boxers over his long career, including Bayan Jargal, Jessie Nicklow, Tim Coleman, Ishmail Arvin, Antonio Reese, Marlon Haynes, Cliff Richard and Ricardo Edmonds.

Co-promoter Tony "Mo Better" Jeter of Stevensville, MD is scheduled to compete on this card against an opponent to be determined.  Jeter (19-4-1, 13 KO's) is coming off another solid year participating in the Beltway Boxing Bout of the Year for 2014, defeating Jimmy Lange by majority decision on November 15 at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA for the vacant NABA USA Middleweight championship.  Jeter also successfully defended his WBC Fecarbox Middleweight title and competed for the WBC Silver title in 2014.

Also slated to participate on this card is Upper Marlboro, MD heavyweight Mike Balogun (3-0, three KO's).  In his first three bouts, the former University of Oklahoma linebacker has had some crushing knockouts.  Balogun had one of the best knockouts of 2014 when he decimated Cody Troutman in the first round on the last card at the ABC Sports Complex on December 6.

Undefeated Springfield, VA super lightweight Edgar "The Tiger" Torres (4-0-1, three KO's) will also be on the card.  Torres has not fought since stopping Greg Thomas in the second round in October of 2013 at the ABC Sports Complex.

Two Beltway amateurs will make their pro debuts on this card.  Fairfax, VA super welterweight Zarifbek Nishanbaev is a former Novice Washington Golden Gloves champion while heavyweight Luther Smith of Crofton, MD was also an accomplished amateur.
