Springfield, VA Card Also Coming Together!

There are some bouts that have been scheduled for the T.A.C. Promotions card on Saturday, September 22nd at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA. 

Undefeated Hyattsville, MD super lightweight Patrick "YG Pat" Harris is slated to be in the main event in an American Boxing Federation Colonial Atlantic Super Lightweight title bout against an opponent to be determined.  Harris (13-0, eight KO's) last fought on May 12th and scored a third-round TKO over Rynell Griffin in Sterling, VA.

Promoters say there are a total of four Beltway Boxers slated for this card.  However, the only other one we can confirm is debuting Waldorf, MD heavyweight Kwasi Horton. Springfield, VA middleweight Edgar Torres was scheduled to be on the card. However, Torres suffered an injury and is off the card. There are other bouts scheduled that feature some highly-regarded out-of-town boxers.

Welterweight Anthony "Juice" Young of Atlantic City, NJ will be in an eight-und contest against Donald "Bulldog" Ward of West Memphis, AR. Young (18-2, six KO's) has not fought since August of 2017 when he won a six-round unanimous decision over Carlos Winston Velasquez in Atlantic City.  Young fought at the ABC Sports complex in March of 2014 and scored a second-round TKO over Reggie Nash.

Ward (10-7-1, four KO's) comes off an eight-round unanimous victory over Charlis Holifield on July 21st in Memphis, TN.  The win earned Ward the vacant ABF USA Mid-American Welterweight title.

Also on the card will be another eight-round contest between light heavyweights Alvin "Iron Majik" Varmall, Jr. of Catskill, NY and "The Hawaiian Nightmare" Rocky Smith of Muskegon, MI by way of Honolulu, HI.  Varmall (15-1-1, 12 KO's) looks to bounce back from his first pro loss, an eight-round unanimous decision to Charles Foster on May 11th in Philadelphia, PA.  Smith (13-7, 11 KO's) has only fought once since 2006 and lost a six-round unanimous decision to Taylor Grey Duerr in his last outing on July 13th in Detroit, MI.

There will also be a scheduled four-round contest between Bronx, NY super welterweight Abner "Bam Bam" Guadalupe and Jason Kelly of Brockville, Ontario, Canada.  Guadalupe (1-0-1) won his first pro contest in his last outing, winning a four-round unanimous decision over David Ricardo Perez on February 10th in New Cumberland, WVA.  Kelly (2-5-1) broke a two-bout losing streak with a four-round majority decision win over Joe Elliott on July 14th in Belleville, Canada.

More bouts are slated to be announced for this card.
