Reeves Competes For IBO Light Heavyweight Title November 12 In Baltimore!

Boxing returns to the Coppermine Du Burns Arena in Baltimore, MD on Saturday, November 12.  This will be a Shawstyle Promotions/Shabazz Brothers card.

Headlining the card will be Baltimore, MD light heavyweight Travis "Seveer" Reeves who will be competing for the vacant IBO Light Heavyweight title against an opponent to be determined.  Reeves (12-2-2, six KO's) has been on a roll as of late, winning nine in a row, his last three by knockout.  In his last outing, Reeves stopped Larry Pryor in the eighth round to win the Maryland State Cruiserweight title on May 14 in Timonium, MD.

In bouts already signed for this card, there will be an all-Maryland, four-round light heavyweight contest matching Germantown's Eric Govan and Baltimore's Devin Butcher. Govan (5-1, three KO's) is riding a three-bout winning streak that includes a fourth-round TKO over Travis Davidson on February 6 in Salem, VA.  Butcher (5-1, three KO's) will look to bounce back from his first pro loss-- a six-round split decision defeat to Taneal Goyco on the May 14 Timonium card.

Owings Mills, MD heavyweight Colby Madison returns to action in a four-round contest against Solomon Maye of New Haven, CT.  Madison (3-0, two KO's) is coming off a first-round TKO over Bryson Haubrick on August 19 in Crystal City, VA.  Maye (3-6-2, three KO's) has won his last two contests including a second-round TKO victory over Mike Barrase on October 8 in Scranton, PA.  On April 29, Maye lost a four-round split decision to Luther Smith in Atlantic City, NJ.

Baltimore, MD super middleweight Stephon "The Surgeon" Morris will face the debuting Gregory Clark of Washington, DC in a four-rounder.   Morris (3-0, three KO's) last fought on June 11 and scored a first-round TKO over David Rohn in Springfield, VA.  Clark is a former DC Novice Golden Gloves Champion, winning the 165-pound title in 2013.

Columbia, MD cruiserweight Kwame "Rambo Time" Ritter will be in a four-round contest against Marcus Key of Newport News, VA.  Ritter is coming off a first-round TKO over Nathaniel Edge on July 16 in Norfolk, VA.  Key (1-3, one KO) lost a four-round unanimous decision to Margarito Espinoza on September 18 in Austin, TX.

There will also be a battle of debuting middleweights as Taylor Paige of Las Vegas, NV takes on Ismael Austin of Belle Glade, FL.

Other Beltway Boxers slated to be on this card are super  lightweight Eric "El Torito" Hernandez (8-0, five KO's, Leesburg, VA), super featherweight Glenn Dezurn (7-0, five KO's, Baltimore, MD), middleweight Jeffrey "Gladiator" McCalla (3-0, three KO's, Randallstown, MD), welterweight Matthew Abregu (3-0, three KO's, Washington, DC), super middleweight Sharif "C3" Rahman (1-0, one KO, Baltimore/Las Vegas), super featherweight Mack Allison, IV (6-0, six KO's, Baltimore) and featherweight Marq "Monster" Johns (7-1-1, six KO's, Fort Washington, MD).
