Beltway-based promotional company Jeter Promotions has signed undefeated York, PA welterweight Steve Weimer (left) to an exclusive promotional contract. Jeter Promotions is headed by Tony "Mo Better" Jeter.
Weimer (9-0, two KO's) looks to return to the ring after an almost four-year hiatus. During the time away from boxing, Weimer earned his degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology from York College.
The 26-year-old Weimer had an amateur record of 105-31 and was a three-time Pennsylvania Junior Golden Gloves champion and also won a Pennsylvania open class Golden Gloves title. He holds an amateur win over 140-pound contender Emmanuel Taylor and held his own in a fight with future U.S. Olympian Sadam Ali.
Weimer turned professional in 2008 with a third round stoppage over Spencer Harsley. Weimer racked up those nine pro wins in a three and a half year run, before heading off to college. One of those wins was a first-round TKO over Juan Thompson in September of 2008 at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, MD.
"I know Jeter Promotions can get me to the top,"said Weimer. I saw what Jeter Promotions did for Tony Jeter for his career and I know what Jeter Promotions can do for mine. Combine all that with my ability and I know I will fight consistently. With Jeter Promotions, I know I can get to the top and be in big fights.
"Jeter Promotions is excited to add Steve to our roster. Jeter Promotions will do for him as it did for my career. Jeter Promotions will build him to get him rated and I can see him being in a lot of big fights in the future and eventually win a world title, " Said Jeter.
