Boxing Returns To Michael's Eighth Avenue March 30th!

A pro-am card comes to Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, MD on Thursday, March 30th.  The card will be promoted by Baltimore Pro Boxing.

Headlining the pro portion of the card will be NABA Cruiserweight champion "Slick" Nick Kisner of Baltimore, MD who will take on Lamont "The Problem Solver" Singletary of Dover, DE in an eight-round non-title bout.  Kisner (18-3-1, six KO's) won the NABA title in his last outing, capturing a 10-round majority decision over Brian Holstein on November 23 in Columbus, OH.  Singletary (8-1, five KO's) returned to action after an almost-three year absence to score a first-round knockout over Dan Biddle on February 17th in Wilmington, DE.  Singletary's only loss came against Travis Reeves in November of 2013.  Reeves knocked out Singletary in the first round.

In a super middleweight contest scheduled for four-rounds, "Dangerous" Donald Wallace of Baltimore will face Barry Trotter of Columbia, MD.  Wallace (2-0, one KO) fought on the last card at Michael's Eighth Avenue and won a six-round unanimous decision over Tahir Thomas on January 13.  Trotter (2-2, one KO) fights sporadically and has not competed since being knocked out by D'Mitrius Ballard in the first round in August of 2014 in Brooklyn, NY.

Also on the card will be Baltimore welterweight Joey "Bazooka Joe" Veazey who will battle Washington DC's Lamont White.  Veazey, a very popular and successful amateur, competes in Maryland for the first time as a pro after making his pro debut in Winchester, VA on October 22.  Veazey won a four-round decision over Alberto Delgado.  White (0-6) has never been knocked out in a contest.  White last fought on February 11th and lost a four-round unanimous decision to Tyrek Irby in Fort Washington, MD.

The card will also mark the return of Catonsville, MD cruiserweight Steve "Show Stealer" Wheeler (6-0, five KO's). Wheeler has not fought since September of 2010 when he scored a first-round knockout over Donnie Crawford in Baltimore, MD.

The amateur portion of the card will feature former East Coast heavyweight titlist Brian “Bam Bam” Haneschlager of the Baltimore Boxing Gym. Haenschlager, is expected to turn pro in the near future.
