More Bouts Announced For August 18th at Live! Casino!

The rest of the Jeter Promotions card that will take place on Saturday, August 18th at Live! Casino in Hanover, MD has been announced.

Before we get to the undercard, the main event between Laurel, MD's Demond "D'Best At It" Nicholson and Issac Rodrigues of  Belem, Para, Brazil will be for the vacant WBC USNBC Super Middleweight title.

An interesting bout on the card will be a four-round lightweight contest between "The Red Comet" Dante Cox of Elkridge, MD and Latorie Woodberry of Roanoke, VA.  For Cox, this will be truly competing in front of his home crowd as he works at Live! Casino as a bartender in the Prime Rib Restaurant.  Cox (2-0, one KO) is coming off a first-round TKO over Tyshae Ferguson on June 16th at the Gardens Ice House in Laurel, MD.  Woodberry (2-6-2) last fought on June 8th and won a four-round majority decision over Mike Conway in Pittsburgh, PA.

There will be a six-round, all-Maryland middleweight bout between Columbia's Ashton "The Goon" Sykes and Baltimore's "Dangerous" Donald Wallace. Sykes (2-1) bounced back from his first pro loss by winning a four-round unanimous decision over Alberto Delgado on June 29th at Martin's West in Woodlawn, MD.  Wallace (2-1-1, one KO) looks to bounce back from a four-round unanimous decision to Zarifbek Nishanbaev in July of 2017 at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, MD. 

Speaking of Nishanbaev, "The Uzbek Warrior" of Arlington, VA by way of Kyrgyzstan will be on this card in a four-round super welterweight bout against veteran Kevin "The Scarecrow" Womack, Jr. of Baltimore.  Nishanbaev (4-1, three KO's) won his last outing by first-round TKO over Cordell Powell on April 28th in Phoenix, AZ.  Womack (8-16-4, six KO's) lost a tough four-round majority decision to Kareem Martin on June 30th in Washington, DC.

In a six-round middleweight rematch, undefeated Francisco "The Cisco Kid" Bustos of Rockville, MD will battle Jauvan John of Brooklyn, NY.  The two boxers fought their last contest against one another on June 16th in Laurel, MD with Bustos (7-0, four KO's) winning a close, four-round unanimous decision over John (2-6-1).

A four-round cruiserweight contest will have Charles Johnson of Washington, DC (0-1) taking on the debuting Chester Stewart of Bowie, MD.  Johnson lost his pro debut against Mushin Cason by four-round unanimous decision in Woodlawn, MD.  Stewart is a former quarterback who played his college ball at Temple University and professionally with the Baltimore Ravens.

The card is scheduled to begin at 7 PM ET with the main event broadcast live on the CBS Sports Network at 9 PM ET.  Tickets can be purchased by going to www.livecasinohotel.com.

Featured Bouts Announced For August 18th Card At Maryland Live Casino!

Two interesting 10-round contests have been announced for the nationally-televised Jeter Promotions card held Saturday, August 18th at Maryland Live Casino in Hanover, MD.

The main event pits Laurel, MD super middleweight Demond "D'Best At It" Nicholson against Issac Rodrigues of Belem, Para, Brazil.  Nicholson (18-3-1, 17 KO's) will look to bounce back from suffering a seventh-round TKO loss to Jesse Hart on April 28th in Philadelphia, PA.  Nicholson has lost two of his last three contests.  Rodrigues (25-2, 20 KO's) is on an eight-bout winning streak including a fourth-round TKO win over Frankie Filippone on June 8th in Verona, NY.  The bout was Rodrigues's first in almost two years.

Many local fans are already talking about the co-feature contest, a bout the defines the phrase "crossroads bout."  Undefeated Forestville, MD super lightweight Mykal "The Professor" Fox will battle former WBO Super Lightweight champion DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley of Washington, DC. There is a 22-year difference between the two boxers (Fox is 22, Corley is 44) and Fox was seven months old when Corley began his pro career in May of 1996.

Fox (17-0, four KO's) last fought on May 11th and won an eight-round unanimous decision over Anthony Mercado in Philadelphia, PA.  Recently, Fox moved into the number one position in the USBA's Super Lightweight rankings.  This will be the second 10-round contest for Fox, who went that distance with Manuel Alejandro Reyes on November 11th in Bethlehem, PA.  Defeating Reyes earned Fox his first regional title, the UBF All-Americas Welterweight championship.

Corley (51-31-1, 28 KO's) is looking to break a two-bout losing streak that includes a 12-round unanimous decision loss to former WBA Super Lightweight titleholder Vivian Harris on July 21st in Memphis, TN.  This will be Corley's fifth bout in 2018 and will be the first local bout for Corley since he defeated Daniel Attah by 10-round unanimous decision at the Washington Convention Center in September of 2014.

Both bouts are scheduled to be televised by the CBS Sports Network.

Kisner Wins Majority Decision Over Sigmon In Columbus, OH!

Baltimore, MD cruiserweight "Slick" Nick Kisner won a 10-round majority decision over Bedford, VA's Scott "Cujo" Sigmon Saturday at the Hollywood Casino in Columbus, OH.

Kisner used quick hands to land shots from distance at times throughout the bout.  Sigmon had his moments inside but Kisner was able to land good uppercuts and right hands in the contest.

Judge Brian Kennedy gave Sigmon credit for his work inside and scored the bout a draw at 95-95.  However, Kennedy was overruled by Scott Maddox who scored the bout 99-91 and Jamie Garula who saw the bout 96-94 for Kisner, whose record is now 21-4-1, six KO's.  Sigmon's record falls to 32-13-1, 16 KO's.

Bouts Announced For August 4th Card In Sterling, VA!

Bouts have been announced for the Ponytail Promotions card at the Michael and Son Sportsplex at Dulles in Sterling, VA on Saturday, August 4th.  Here is the card so far.

The main event has multi-time world champion Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson in a 10-round bout against Tiffany Woodard of Wilson, NC.  Nelson (17-2-3, two KO's) will look to bounce back from suffering two straight losses against quality opposition.  In her last outing, Nelson lost a 10-round unanimous decision to Christina Hammer for the WBC and WBO Middleweight championships on June 22nd in Detroit, MI.  Prior to that, Nelson dropped a 10-round unanimous decision to Claressa Shields for the IBF and WBC Super Middleweight championships on January 12th in Verona, NY.

Woodard (4-11-3, three KO's) is winless in her last 10 bouts, including her last five contests.  One of those losses came to Beltway Boxer Franchon Crews-Dezurn on that same January 12th card in Verona.  Woodard lost a six-round unanimous decision.

Also on the card, undefeated Ashburn lightweight Seth "Killer B" Billups will face veteran Matt Murphy of East St. Louis, Illinois in a six-round bout.  Billups (10-0, six KO's) last fought on November 4th and won a six-round unanimous decision to Lamont White in Ashburn, VA.  Murphy (3-25-3, two KO's) has lost nine in a row, including his last outing, a fourth-round TKO loss to Drayvontay Speed-Rawls on June 16th in Laurel, MD.

Baltimore, MD super featherweight Mack "Papi" Allison IV returns to action in a six-round contest against Rynell Griffin of Las Vegas, NV.  Allison (7-1-1, seven KO's) looks to bounce back from his first pro loss, a six-round unanimous decision defeat to Reggie Barnett on December 9th in Norfolk, VA.  Allison fought to a four-round draw against Murphy in June of 2017 in Baltimore.  Griffin (8-38-2, two KO's) will look to break a nine-bout losing streak. Included in that streak are losses to locals Patrick Harris and Seth Billups.  Griffin has also lost his last three bouts (including the loss to Harris) by TKO.

In a four-round contest, Ashburn middleweight Carlos "Refuse To Lose" Cruz will take on the debuting Ian "The Dancer" Cokley of Fort Washington, MD.  Cruz (1-3, one KO) won his pro debut in June of 2016 by first-round TKO.  However, he has lost three straight, including a first-round knockout loss to Richard Williams, Jr. on December 9th in Norfolk.  Cokley participated and advanced to the finals of the 178-pound Novice Division of the Washington Golden Gloves.

The co-feature will be a 10-round heavyweight rematch between Jerry "Slug" Forrest of Newport News, VA and Miree "Pink Panther" Coleman of Fayetteville, NC.  Forrest (19-2, 15 KO's) won the first bout by second-round TKO on April 4th in Norfolk, VA.  The Coleman camp protested the bout's outcome claiming Forrest committed fouls during the bout.  The initial ruling on the bout was allowed to stand.  Neither Forrest nor Coleman (6-4, four KO's) have competed since the first contest.

More bouts may be added to this card, which is scheduled to get underway at 7:30 PM ET.

Weekend Results: Corley Loses Rematch With Harris; Lockett Stopped In Third!

Here are a couple of results from this past Saturday, July 21st.  Former WBO Super Lightweight champion DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley of Washington, DC lost a 12-round unanimous decision to former WBA Super Lightweight champion "Vicious" Vivian Harris of Brooklyn, NY at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, TN.

No details on this bout but Corley lost by scores of 116-112 (twice) and 118-110.  Corley has now lost two straight contests and his record is now 51-31-1, 28 KO's.  Harris avenges his 10-round loss to Corley in May of 2017 and is now 33-12-2, 19 KO's.

Also, Takoma Park, MD light heavyweight Willis "The Prophet" Lockett lost by third-round TKO to undefeated Lennox "2 Sharpe" Allen of New York City at the Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, CT.  According to reports, the southpaw Allen began the contest prodding with his jab. A right hook upstairs found the mark and dropped Lockett in the first. Allen then targeted the midsection to break down his foe. A visibly weary Lockett ate a left hook to the body in round three and hit the floor. Discerning that Lockett was unable to continue, the referee immediately waved off the contest without a count, ending matters at the round’s 3:00 mark.   Lockett's record is now 16-24-6, five KO's while Allen, who was returning after a three-year absence, remains undefeated at 21-0-1, 14 KO's.

Ferhardi Returns; Corley Rematches Against Harris; Kisner Faces Sigmon In July!

As of now, there are no pro boxing cards slated for the Beltway area in July.  However, a number of locals will be involved in bouts outside the area during the month.

We have already talked about one bout -- Lamont Roach, Jr. facing Deivi Julio "El Cabo" Bessa for the vacant WBO International Super Featherweight title in Cancun, Mexico on Friday, July 20th.  That bout will be televised live on ESPN.

There are two bouts that will take place on Saturday, July 21st.  Undefeated Frederick, MD super middleweight Devar "Jengawar" Ferhadi returns to action in a six-round contest against George Sheppard of Newport News, VA at the Caswell Civic Center in Yanceyville, NC.  Ferhadi (7-0, six KO's) has not fought since August of 2016 when he scored a third-round TKO over Christopher Petty in Crystal City, VA.  Ferhadi is in the last stages of medical school in his native Kurdistan -- he is slated to graduate next June.

Sheppard (1-3-1) comes off a four-round majority draw against Richard Williams, Jr. on April 14th in Norfolk, VA.  Sheppard is 1-2 against Beltway Boxers, losing his first two contests against Jason Bell and Leo Alcanera before notching his only win against Carlos Cruz in August of 2017 in Norfolk.

Also on July 21st, there will be a rematch of former world super lightweight champions as former WBO champion DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley of Washington, DC takes on former WBA titleholder "Vicious" Vivian Harris of Brooklyn, NY at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, TN.  The contest will be a scheduled 12-rounder for the vacant American Boxing Federation Continental Americas Super Lightweight title.  The last time these two veterans met was in May of 2017 where Corley (51-29-1, 28 KO's) won a 10-round unanimous decision over Harris (32-12-2, 19 KO's) in Raleigh, NC.  Both men were knocked down during the bout -- Corley in the first round and Harris in the seventh.

Since that bout, Corley has fought three times, winning two of the three.  In his last outing, Corley won a 12-round unanimous decision over Patrick Lopez on April 7th in Lagos, Nigeria for the German version of the WBU Lightweight title.  Harris has not fought since the last encounter with Corley.

On Saturday, July 28th, two Beltway veterans will face off at the Hollywood Casino in Columbus, OH.  "Slick" Nick Kisner of Baltimore, MD will battle Scott "Cujo" Sigmon of Lynchburg, VA in a 10-round cruiserweight contest. Kisner (20-4-1, six KO's) makes his second straight (and third overall) trip to the Hollywood Casino where Kisner won a 10-round unanimous decision over Brian Holstein on March 3rd.  This was the second win over Holstein.

Sigmon (31-12-1, 16 KO's) bounced back from his 10-round unanimous decision loss to Roy Jones, Jr. on February 8 by winning an eight-round unanimous decision over Alan Stephenson in Salem, VA.

Roach Battles Bassa For Vacant WBO International Title July 20th In Cancun!

Upper Marlboro, MD super featherweight Lamont Roach, Jr. will battle Deivi Julio "El Cabo" Bessa of Monteira, Colombia for the vacant WBO International Super Featherweight championship on Friday, July 20th at the Grand Oasis Arena in Cancun, Mexico.  The bout will be the main event on a card televised by ESPN.

This will be the second straight opportunity for Roach (16-0-1, six KO's) to gain this title.  On April 19th, Roach battled Orlando Cruz to a 10-round split decision draw in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  Roach has also held the WBC Youth Silver Super Featherweight crown.

Bassa (20-4, 12 KO's) broke a two-bout losing streak in his last outing, scoring a fifth-round TKO over Yohangel Romero on February 24th in Puerto Colombia, Colombia.  Romero was 0-26 when he fought Bassa.
