Beltway Boxers Travel To Philadelphia June 24th!

Four Beltway Boxers will be heading to the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA to compete on a Kings Promotions card on Saturday, June 24th.

In six-round contests, Washington, DC featherweight Marcus "The Dreamcrusher" Bates will take on Roberto "Escorpion" Pucheta of La Villa de Cuerámbaro, Jalisco, Mexico.  Bates (6-0-1, six KO's) is coming off an explosive six-round TKO over Alec McGee on February 11th at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD.  Pucheta (10-11-1, six KO's) will be taking on a Beltway Boxer for the second straight time.  Pucheta lost a six-round unanimous decision to Kevin Rivers, Jr. on May 24th in Santa Monica, CA.  This bout was originally scheduled to take place on the June 3rd Kings Promotions card at Rosecroft.  However, Pucheta was deemed unfit to compete.

Also, DC super welterweight Gregory "Glizzy" Clark will battle Darryl "Dreamking" Bunting of Asbury Park, NJ.  Clark (2-1-1, one KO) comes off a tough six-round majority draw with Donald Wallace on May 12th in Glen Burnie, MD. Bunting, a native of Marietta, GA (3-1-2, one KO) will try to build off a four-round unanimous decision victory over Juan Zapata on November 11th in Chester, PA.  Bunting will be competing for the first time in a scheduled six-round encounter.

In four-round bouts, Jordan "Kidd" Peters of DC will be in a lightweight battle with "Pretty Boy" Chaise Nelson of Dayton, OH.  Peters (2-0-1, two KO's) fought on the June 3rd Rosecroft show and got off of the canvas in the first round to score a second round stoppage of Bryan Perez-Navarez.  Ironically, Nelson (5-1, three KO's) also scored his last victory over Perez-Navarez, winning a four-round unanimous decision on May 12th at the Sugar House Casino in Philadelphia.

Owings Mills, MD heavyweight Colby Madison (4-0, three KO's) is also slated to appear on this card in a four-round contest.  Madison has not fought since scoring a first-round TKO over Lamarco Ellis on February 4th in Wilson, NC.
