Beltway Boxers Return To Norfolk May 13th!

A number of Beltway Boxers will be participating on a Ponytail Promotions/Shabazz Brotherz card at the Masonic Temple in Norfolk, VA on Saturday, May 13th.

There will be an all-Beltway four-round lightweight matchup between Leesburg, VA's Matthew Abregu and DC's Lamont White.  Abregu (4-0, three KO's) went the distance for the first time in his pro career in his last outing when he won a four-round majority decision over Benjamin Olinga on December 10th in Springfield, VA.  White (0-7) has never been knocked out and is coming off a four-round unanimous decision loss to Ernest Hall on March 30th in Glen Burnie, MD.

In a six-round super middleweight bout, Eric "The Immortal" Govan of Germantown, MD will take on Brandon Pennington of Virginia Beach, VA.  Govan (5-2, three KO's) will look to bounce back from a four-round unanimous decision loss to Devin Butcher on November 12th in Baltimore, MD.  Pennington (1-0) won his pro debut on December 10th in Springfield, VA capturing a four-round majority decision over Carlos Cruz.

There will be a six-round heavyweight rematch between Newport News, VA's Jerry "Slug" Forrest and Willis "The Prophet" Lockett of Takoma Park, MD.  Forrest (14-2, 12 KO's) won the first meeting between the two by four-round unanimous decision on August 25th in Virginia Beach, VA.  Forrest has not fought since that bout, however, Lockett (14-19-6, five KO's) fought to a six-round draw in his last outing on December 17th against Ed Lattimore in New Cumberland, WVA.

Other locals scheduled to be on the card are 2016 Beltway Boxing Rookie of the Year Mack "Papi" Allison IV of Baltimore, MD (7-0, seven KO's) and Seth "Killer B" Billups of Ashburn, VA (8-0, six KO's).  The card is scheduled to be headlined by veteran "Dangerous" Dorin Spivey of Portsmouth, VA (47-7, 33 KO's) in a six-round bout.  No word yet on opponents for these boxers.
