Montgomery Village, MD welterweight Gerome "The Showstopper" Quigley will defend his newly-won Virginia State Welterweight title on the next Jeter Promotions/RBA Promotions card on Saturday, June 6 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA.
The undefeated Quigley (7-0, six KO's) won his title on the last Jeter/RBA card on March 28 at the ABC Complex, scoring a fifth-round TKO over Richard "Tiger" Lee Hall. Quigley has knocked out his last four opponents.
Quigley's adversary for this six-round contest may not have the type of record you would normally see in a title bout. However, DC welterweight Benjamin "Wildcat" Olinga definitely has the heart to be in one. Olinga (1-9) has gone the distance in his last five bouts and has given most of his opponents some very tough battles. Three of Olinga's last five contests went to majority decision.
Olinga has faced nine Beltway Boxers in his career and has been stopped only once by a fellow local boxer. That was in November of 2011 when he was knocked out by Kevin Womack, Jr. in the fourth round in what was the Beltway Boxing Knockout of the Year in Upper Marlboro, MD. The only other boxer to stop Olinga was Rolando Chinea of Lancaster, PA who knocked out Olinga in the third round of a November 2013 contest in Baltimore, MD.
We'll have more information from this card as it comes into us. Also, congratulations to co-promoter and two-regional belt champion Tony "Mo Better" Jeter who recently cracked the top 15 rankings in the WBA. Jeter (20-4-1, 14 KO's) is ranked at number 15 in the middleweight rankings to add to his number 13 ranking in the WBC. By the way, another Beltway Boxer -- Antoine "Action" Douglas -- is ranked number 14 by the WBA.
