A couple of updates on some Beltway News:
There are some changes to the Shawstyle Promotions/Shabazz Promotions card on Friday, March 20 at Martin's West in Woodlawn, MD. The opponent for Tyrieshia "Lady Tyga" Douglas has changed. Douglas (8-0, three KO's) will now take on Maria Suarez of Santa Maria, CA for the vacant UBF Flyweight world title. Suarez (9-1-1) last fought on January 9 and won a six-round majority decision over Jolene Blackshear in Santa Ynez, CA.
Suarez replaces Chantel Cordova, who suffered an injury in training. Suarez holds a victory over Cordova, which may be one of the reasons why Boxrec.com has given this bout three out of five stars.
Also on this card, Demond "D Best At It" Nicholson (11-1, 11 KO's) has a new opponent in Edgar Perez of Chicago, IL for his six-round clash. Perez (6-12, three KO's) is no stranger to this area or to Beltway Boxers. Perez is the only man to take Jerry Odom the distance, losing a four-round unanimous decision in Springfield, VA. Perez also lost a unanimous decision to Antoine Douglas and Perez's last win came in Springfield, VA in June of 2014 when he won a six-round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Lavarn Harvell. Harvell has not fought since that loss.
We are hearing that "The Pride of Alexandria (VA)" Brandon Quarles has been added to the Jeter Promotions/RBA Promotions card on Saturday, March 28 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA. No word yet on his opponent.
Also, Gary Russell, Jr's title quest against WBC Featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez on March 28 now has a home -- the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV. The bout will be on Showtime.
