Results From North Hall at Eastern Market!

Here are the results of the Jeter Promotions/RBA Promotions card at North Hall at Eastern Market in Washington, DC:

The main event saw undefeated Gaithersburg, MD welterweight Gerome "GQ" Quigley stop Dontre "Pound For Pound" King of Cambridge, MD at 19 seconds of the second round.

Quigley nailed King with two left hands to the face in the first and second rounds, dropping King twice to the canvas.  On the first knockdown, King reacted as if he had been thumbed in the eye.  The second knockdown was a clear punch and King could not beat referee Marshall Cunningham's count and the bout was stopped.

Quigley beat King for the second time in his career and gained a stoppage victory over the only man to take him the distance.  Quigley is now 9-0, eight KO's while King falls to 7-19-2, three KO's.

The co-feature saw a Beltway Boxing Knockout of the Year candidate as heavyweight Luther "Lights Out" Smith wowed a partisan crowd with a devastating first-round knockout of Schyuler Marshall of South Carolina.  Smith landed a brutal left-right combination that sent Marshall toppling backwards to the canvas.  Marshall tried to get up but could not do it before referee Malik Waleed stopped the bout at 39 seconds.

Smith is now 2-0, two KO's while Marshall's record drops to 1-6-1, one KO.

Glenarden, MD lightweight Drayvontay Speed-Rawls used tremendous hand speed to generate two knockdowns of Brian Raglin of Indianapolis, IN, eventually stopping Raglin at 2:18 of the first round.  Speed-Rawls landed two solid left hands to drop Raglin, who beat the count on the second knockdown but was in no condition to continue.

Speed-Rawls gets his first pro knockout and raises his record to 3-0, one KO.  Raglin is now 0-10 and has yet to make it to the distance in a contest.

In the only bout on the card to go the distance, Edgar "The Tiger" Torres of Springfield, VA won a four-round unanimous decision over veteran Andre Baker of Lumberton, NC.  Torres dropped Baker with right hands to the head and body in the second round and went on to win relatively easily.  Torres won by scores of 40-35 (twice) and 40-36 to raise his record to 6-0-1, three KO's while Baker falls to 10-43-2, two KO's.

Heavyweight Stan Williamson of Columbia, MD opened the card with a third-round stoppage of debuting Marquis Benson of Indianapolis, IN.  The 6'7" Williamson towered over his opponent and, once he found the range, was able to land destructive combinations to wear Benson down, finally getting the stoppage at 30 seconds of the third.  Williamson is now 4-0, four KO's.

Two boxers who are signees of GH3 Promotions of New Jersey put on very impressive performances on this card.  Lavarn "Baby Bowe" Harvell of Atlantic City, NJ stopped Quincey "Pretty Boy Vegas" Miner of Kansas City, MO at 2:35 of the first round.  Harvell battered Miner throughout the round, eventually dropping him with a solid right hand.  Miner could not beat referee Mark D'Atillo's count and the bout was stopped.

Harvell, who now trains in Virginia, raised his record to 15-1, eight KO's.  Miner is now 3-10.

The newest GH3 signee (joining, among others, Beltway Boxers Antoine Douglas, Jerry Odom and Jerrell Harris), O'Shaquie "Ice Water" Foster of Houston, TX, put on a dazzling display of speed and power en route to stopping Frank Jordan of Elizabeth, NJ at 1:26 of the first round.

Foster, a former amateur standout, used tremendous hand speed to set up a nice left hand to the body-right hand to the head combination to drop Jordan early in the first.  Moments later, Foster landed another blistering right hand to put Jordan back down on the canvas for the count.   Foster remains undefeated at 7-0, four KO's while Jordan is 0-5.

In an exhibition bout, the returning Orazio "Razor" Robinson of Manassas, VA stopped Theophulis Newkirk of Wilson, NC in the first round.  This was the first time Robinson had fought in front of a live crowd in over nine years.

The matchmaker for the card was ranked middleweight Tony "Mo Better" Jeter.  The ring announcer was "The Auctioneer" Brad Dudley.

Here is the card in its entirety, with the Post-Fight Wrap-Up included.
