The rest of September will have its fill of Beltway amateur cards. Here's what we have in store:
On Saturday, September 14th, the legendary Mack Lewis Boxing Gym will host a card to benefit the Mack Lewis Foundation. The show is scheduled to feature top boxers from the Baltimore area. All tickets are $25 and the card is slated to feature anywhere from 10 to 20 bouts. The Mack Lewis gym is located at 913 North Bond Street in Baltimore. The first bout is at 5 PM. For details, call 443-506-6539.
The NOMIS Gym is having its NOMIS Boxing Fight Night on Saturday, September 21st at the Mary Virginia Merrick Center, located at 4275 4th Street in Southeast Washington, DC. This card is not only scheduled to bring in boxers from the Beltway but also from New Jersey, North Carolina, and Florida. This is also a fundraising event and tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for youth. The card gets underway at 6 PM. The weigh-in will be at the NOMIS Boxing Center, located at 2403 Benning Road in Northeast DC and starts promptly at 10 AM. Call 202-316-2380 for more information.
Then on Saturday, September 28th, the amateur action returns to Baltimore as Baltimore Boxing Promotions will have a card at the Horseshoe Casino. Unlike an amateur card a few years ago that was held outdoors at the Horseshoe Casino, this one will take place inside the casino theater. This means you must be at least 21 years old to attend the card. A host of local boxers will participate on this card. General Admission tickets are $40 and VIP tickets are available. For more information, call 410-375-9175.
