The Hardwork Promotions card for Thursday, April 23 at the Tall Cedars Hall in Baltimore is complete.
BATB has already told you about the main event -- a six-round cruiserweight contest between Baltimore's Travis "Seveer" Reeves (8-2-1, three KO's) and Dan "Bada Bing" Biddle of Hockessin, DE (9-2, five KO's).
The co-feature has Baltimore middleweight Jeremy "The Truth" Trussell taking on Tyeson Harrison of Greensboro, NC in a six-round bout. Trussell (8-2-1, six KO's) needs a win as he is winless in his last three contests (0-2-1) Harrison (2-1, one KO) will try to bounce back from his first pro loss -- a first-round knockout loss to Ivan Golub on November 13 at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore.
There will be a lightweight battle between two debuting boxers from Maryland as Laurel's Joel Young takes on Drayvantay Speed-Rawls of Glenarden. Speed-Rawls is the nephew of Beltway Boxing legend Eugene "Sonny" Speed.
Also on the card, Rockville, MD heavyweight Carlos Black makes his pro debut against veteran Lonnie Kornegay of Baltimore (1-10-3).
