Pro boxing returns to Live! Casino in Hanover, MD on Friday, October 18th with a Jeter Promotions card that features a number of Beltway Boxers.
The main event will be an eight-round super middleweight bout between Laurel, MD's Demond "D'Best At It" Nicholson and Devaun Lee of Jamaica, Queens, NY. Nicholson (21-3-1, 20 KO's) is the reigning WBC USNBC and Maryland State Super Middleweight champion, however, he will not defend those titles in this bout. Nicholson last fought on March 8th at Live! Casino and scored a first-round knockout over Jessie Nicklow. Nicholson was scheduled to appear on the May 11th card at Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax, VA but he suffered debilitating cramps after the weigh-in and could not compete.
Lee (10-6-1, five KO's) will be trying to break a four-bout losing streak, all against quality opposition. The streak includes his last outing, an eight-round split decision loss to Brandon Robinson on May 10th in Philadelphia, PA. Lee competed on The Contender series in 2018, losing to Shane Mosley, Jr. by fifth-round knockout.
In the co-feature, Baltimore, MD heavyweight "Slick" Nick Kisner will be in a six-round contest against returning Clinton, MD boxer Danny "Smooth" Kelly. The last bout for Kisner (21-4-1, six KO's) ended in a first-round no-contest when he clashed heads with Otto Wallin and suffered a nasty cut in Atlantic City, NJ. Kelly (9-3-1, eight KO's) returns to the ring for the first time since May of 2016 when he lost a six-round unanimous decision to Stephan Shaw in Carleton, MN.
There is one other bout already slated for the card as Owings Mills, MD lightweight Brandon "Brody" Chambers will be in a four-round rematch against Christopher Haney of Glendale Heights, IL. The two men fought to a four-round draw at Live! Casino on March 8th. Since that bout, Chambers (1-0-1, one KO) scored a second-round TKO over Fred Thornton on August 2nd at Live! Casino. Haney (0-3-2) has not fought since the March bout.
Other locals scheduled to appear on this card are Suitland, MD featherweight "The Ambitious One" Malik Loften (3-1, one KO), Germantown, MD featherweight Ebrima Jawara (2-1, one KO), DC super middleweight "The King's Son" Jerry Odom (16-3-1, 15 KO's), Elkridge, MD lightweight "The Red Comet" Dante Cox (4-1, three KO's), and debuting boxers Jay Stancil III, a super bantamweight from Clinton, MD and Blaze Fidler, a super featherweight from Arnold, MD.
