May 12th Card At Michael's Revamped!

The Baltimore Pro Boxing card that will take place on Friday, May 12th at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, MD has been revamped but still looks like a very interesting card.

The originally scheduled main event -- the NABA USA Cruiserweight title bout between Maryland boxers Nick Kisner and Alex Guerrero -- is off the card.  Kisner, the defending champion, suffered an injury in training.  However, the replacement main event should be a good one as Baltimore, MDsuper welterweight "Dangerous" Donald Wallace will take on Washington, DC's Gregory "Glizzy" Clark in a six-round contest.

Wallace (2-0, one KO) last fought on January 13th and won a six-round unanimous decision over Tahir Thomas at Michael's.  Clark (2-1, one KO) won by fourth-round TKO over Devin McMaster on April 4th in Bethlehem, PA.

In a four-round super lightweight contest, undefeated Glenarden, MD's Drayvontay Speed-Rawls will battle Evgueny Metchenov of Gaithersburg, MD.  Speed-Rawls (8-0-1, six KO's) stopped Rynell Griffin in the third round on March 25th in Washington, DC.  Metchenov, a native of Sofia, Bulgaria, lost his pro debut on the March 30th card at Michael's, dropping a four-round split decision to Jahmal Dyer.

West Virginia lightweight Matthew "Boogieman" Bowling returns to action as he battles the returning Dwayne Martin of Laurel, MD in a four-round contest.  Bowling (4-0, four KO's) has scored first-round knockouts in all four of his bouts.  That includes his last outing on February 4th when he stopped Richardo Dejesus in Martinsburg, WVA.  Martin (2-1, one KO) competes for the first time since January of 2010 when he won a four-round majority decision over Darrell Martin at Michael's.

In a welterweight bout, Virginia's Craig Callan will face off with Howard Thompson of Shelby, NC.  Callan (2-1, two KO's) comes off a first-round TKO over Brian Otey on October 22nd in Winchester, VA.  Thompson lost his pro debut on April 29th, dropping a four-round unanimous decision to Pedro Martinez, Jr. in Charlotte, NC.

Debuting Baltimore cruiserweight Desmond Townes will battle veteran Martez Williamson of Akron, OH (3-18) in another four-round bout.
