Here's a quick recap from the Shawstyle Promotions/Shabazz Promotions card that took place in front of a standing room only, turn away crowd at Martin's West in Woodlawn, MD:
The night was a successful one for the Beltway Queens as all three added new hardware to their collections. In the main event, Ashburn, VA's Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson won a 10-round unanimous decision over Kita "Ready-Made" Watkins of Fort Worth, TX to win the Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) Junior Middleweight title. Nelson dropped Watkins with a right hand in the second round.
Nelson won by scores of 100-89 across the board, meaning she has not lost a round in her last three contests -- a total of 24 rounds. Nelson raises her record to 14-0-3, one KO and has won her sixth title in her third weight division.
DC flyweight Tyrieshia "Lady Tyga" Douglas put on a dominating performance en route to an eight-round TKO over Maria Suarez of Santa Maria, CA to win the UBF Flyweight title. Douglas had too much speed in her hands and feet for Suarez who just could not adjust. Douglas knocked down Suarez in the eighth and the bout was stopped shortly after that at 1:35 of the round.
Douglas is now 9-0, four KO's and has won her third title in her second weight class. Suarez is 9-2-1.
Also, "The Bolivian Queen" Jennifer Salinas of Manassas, VA captured the UBF Super Featherweight title with a 10-round unanimous decision over Angel "Non-Stop" Gladney of Columbia, SC. Salinas won by scores of 99-91 (twice) and 98-92 to defeat Gladney for the second time and win her second world title. Salinas is 16-3, four KO's while Gladney falls to 8-11-1, six KO's.
In other bouts on the card, Laurel, MD middleweight Demond "D Best At It" Nicholson used solid body shots to win a second-round TKO over Edgar Perez of Chicago, IL by way of Arecibo, Puerto Rico. Despite a 13-pound weight differential, Nicholson was precise and powerful as he dropped Perez twice during the contest with head and body shots on the way to the stoppage at 1:05 of the second. Nicholson is now 12-1, 12 KO's while Perez is 6-13, three KO's.
Baltimore, MD cruiserweight Travis "Seveer" Reeves won a six-round unanimous decision in a rematch against Lamont "Too Smooth" Capers of Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania. Reeves won for the second time against Capers by scores of 60-54 (twice) and 59-55. Reeves is now 8-2-2, three KO's while Capers is 4-6.
Lightweight Joshua "Dynamite" Davis of Catonsville, MD won a six-round unanimous decision over Hilario Medina of Longmont, CO. Davis used strong jabs to put off the awkward Medina. Davis is now 9-1, four KO's. Medina drops to 2-6.
Columbia, MD light heavyweight Kwame Ritter won a four-round unanimous decision over Santos Martinez of Adrian, MI. Ritter won by shutout (40-36) on all three cards to raise his record to 2-0, one KO. Martinez is now 2-8-1, two KO's.
The opening bout saw Devin Butcher of Baltimore stop David "Rock Steady" Rohn of Muskegon, MI at 52 seconds of the second round. Butcher dropped Rohn late in the first round before stopping him in the second. Butcher is 3-0, one KO while Rohn is 0-4-1.
