Update On January 16 Card In Springfield!

The first Beltway Boxing card of 2016 is coming together.  The Jeter Promotions card that will take place on Saturday, January 16 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA has some interesting matchups.

Undefeated Glenarden, MD lightweight Drayvontay Speed-Rawls will take on Jonathan "2 Gunz" Hernandez of Columbia, SC in a four-round bout.  Speed-Rawls (4-0, two KO's) has scored back-to-back first-round TKO's in his last two outings.  Hernandez (2-3-1, two KO's) is also coming off a knockout win in the first round in his last bout.

Rockville, MD middleweight Francisco Bustos will battle with Bobby Gaither of Hickory, NC in another four-rounder.  Bustos (2-0, one KO) won a four-round unanimous decision over Jovica Jovanovic on November 6 in Hessen, Germany.  Gaither (0-1) made his pro debut on the last card at the ABC Sports Complex, losing a four-round unanimous decision to Jerome Featherstone.

Silver Spring, MD super featherweight Alexandru Marin returns to action in a contest against Szilveszter Ajtai of Kiskunfelegyhaza, Hungary.  Marin (9-0, six KO's) scored a third-round TKO over Gabriel Braxton on December 11 in Wellsburg, WVA. Ajtai (4-1-1, two KO's) makes his United States debut in this contest and will try to bounce back from a second-round TKO loss to Mohammad Obbadi on November 27 in Toscana, Italy.

More bouts to be announced.
