Beltway Boxers Score Mixed Results In Philadelphia!

Four Beltway Boxers were part of an exciting Kings Promotions card of action at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA Saturday night.  They left the town with mixed results.

Undefeated Washington, DC bantamweight Marcus "The Dreamcrusher" Bates won a six-round unanimous decision over a very game Roberto "Escorpion" Pucheta of La Villa de Cuer√°mbaro, Jalisco, Mexico.  According to reports, Bates had to survive a solid Pucheta onslaught early on before coming on strong in the middle rounds.  Bates knocked down Pucheta in the fifth round with a left hand and went on to win the bout by scores of 59-54 and 58-55 (twice).  Bates is now 7-0-1, six KO's while Pucheta falls to 10-12-1, six KO's and loses to a Beltway Boxer for the second consecutive time.  Pucheta dropped a six-round unanimous decision to Kevin Rivers, Jr. on May 24th in Santa Monica, CA.

DC super middleweight Gregory "Glizzy" Clark won a six-round unanimous decision over Darryl "Dreamking" Bunting of Asbury Park, NJ.  Clark seemed to be in command throughout the contest, according to reports with one local reporter calling the bout a "horrible, ugly fight."  Clark is now 3-1-1, one KO while Bunting, originally from Marietta, GA, falls to 3-2-2, one KO.

Heavyweight Colby Madison of Owings Mills, MD fought to a six-round majority draw against fellow undefeated boxer Joel Caudle of Raleigh, NC.  According to the Madison camp, Madison was hampered by a broken right hand he suffered in the first round.  Caudle won the bout on one judge's scorecard, 58-56.  However, that judge was overruled by two judges seeing the draw, 57-57.  Madison, who went six rounds for the first time in his career, is now 4-0-1, three KO's.  Caudle is now 7-0-1, five KO's.

In the opening bout on the card, DC lightweight Jordan "Kidd" Peters lost a close four-round unanimous decision to "Pretty Boy" Chaise Nelson of Dayton, OH.  Peters lost by scores of 39-37 across the board.  Peters drops his first pro contest and is now 2-1-1, two KO's.  Nelson's record rises to 6-1, three KO's.
