Quigley Battles King In Six-Round Main Event Rematch At Eastern Market!

For the third consecutive time, undefeated Montgomery Village welterweight Gerome "GQ" Quigley will headline a Jeter Promotions/RBA Promotions card.  Quigley will be in a six-round contest on the card at North Hall at Eastern Market on Saturday, August 22.

Unlike his last two events, Quigley (8-0, seven KO's) will not be in a Virginia State Welterweight title bout.  However, the reigning champion will be facing an opponent he knows well.  Quigley will be in a rematch against the only boxer to take him the distance -- Dontre "Pound For Pound" King of Cambridge, MD.  The two men met on April 18, 2014 in a four-round bout at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD.  Quigley won the bout by a shutout on all three cards (40-36).

Since that bout, Quigley has knocked out his last five opponents while King (7-18-2, three KO's) is in the midst of a four-bout losing streak. Both men appeared on the last Jeter/RBA card on June 6 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA.  Quigley knocked out Benjamin Olinga in the fourth round to defend his Virginia State title while King lost to Brian Mendoza by third-round knockout.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, BATB will broadcast this card live from North Hall beginning at 7:35 PM ET on August 22 on the Boxing Along The Beltway Google App For Android as well as and

I don't see the point of the rematch. Mismatches are not good for the sport of boxing. Keep fights competitive if boxing wants to attract serious fans.
