'Bazooka' Joe Veazey To Make Pro Debut October 22 in Winchester!
From giving exhibitions as a small child through 100 amateur fights, 18-year-old Joey "Bazooka" Joe" Veazey of Baltimore, MD has been a fixture in the Beltway for a number of years. On Saturday, October 22, Veazey will take the next step in his boxing career when he makes his professional debut at Body Renew Fitness in Winchester, VA.
Veazey, who graduated with honors from Northeast High School, won a number of local and national Silver Gloves titles throughout his amateur career and now looks to life as a pro boxer.
"It's a dream come true," Veazey said in a press release. "I've been looking forward to this since my first amateur bout. I'm excited to go out there and follow my dream. The amateurs were fun but my dream has always been to go pro and win world titles. I want to become a household name one day so now is the time to get on track."
Veazey will take on Alberto Delgado of Roanoke, VA (0-0-1) who has not fought since earning a draw against Jason Wahr in Lynchburg, VA in April of 2013.
The bout is part of the Left Hook Promotions card that is scheduled to feature Front Royal, VA welterweight Andrew "The Doo Man" Farmer (19-3, seven KO's)
