Undefeated Baltimore, MD super welterweight Malik "Iceman" Hawkins returns to action on Friday, February 19 when he takes on Cody Peterson of Liberty, Missouri in a four-round contest at the WinnaVegas Casino and Resort in Sloan, IA.
The last time Hawkins (5-0, four KO's) was in the ring was on December 12 when he won a four-round unanimous decision over Jose Valderrama at Du Burns Arena in Baltimore. . Peterson (1-0) made his pro debut on December 9 and won a four-round unanimous decision over Darin Hampton in Kansas City, MO.
The bout is part of a card in which bouts will be televised on the CBS Sports Network. Reportedly, Hawkins's bout will make the telecast. If that is the case, this will mean that there will be two Beltway Boxers on national TV on February 19. Jerry Odom will be in one of the bouts shown on Showtime that evening.
