Isra Girgrah Wynn To Be Inducted Into International Women's Boxing Hall Of Fame!

Congratulations to legendary female Beltway Boxer "The Raging Beauty" Isra Girgrah Wynn who will be inducted into the 2020 International Women's Boxing Hall Of Fame.

Wynn, originally from Dubai, spent the bulk of her nine-year career (1995-2004) competing out of Maryland where she was trained by the great Adrian Davis.  Wynn (28-3-2, 11 KO's) lost her pro debut by third-round TKO to 2015 Hall of Fame Inductee Deidre Gogarty in February 1995 in Cut Off, LA.  Wynn would win her next six bouts before battling Andrea Deshong to a four-round draw in October 1996 at the Washington Hilton Hotel and Towers in DC.

Four bouts later, Wynn would face the toughest foe on her record, the legendary Christy Martin on August 23, 1997, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.  Wynn would drop a close eight-round unanimous decision.  Wynn would score three more victories before suffering her final loss, a four-round unanimous decision to Marischa Sjauw in October of 1999 in Las Vegas, NV.

Wynn would win her final 16 bouts, defeating the likes of Tracy Byrd, Laura Serrano, Melissa Del Valle, and Jo Wyman while capturing four world titles along the way.  Wynn finished her career with a six-round unanimous decision over Carla Witherspoon on March 27th, 2004 at the Lincoln Theatre in DC.

In 2009, Wynn achieved the honor of being the first female boxer to be inducted into the Washington, DC Boxing Hall of Fame (joining this reporter in the 2009 class).  Post boxing, Wynn and her husband, Marty, have forged successful careers as entrepreneurs.

The 2020 International Women's Boxing Hall Of Fame ceremony will take place on August 29th at The Orleans Hotel And Casino in Las Vegas.

Beltway Boxers Give Solid Performances In Glen Burnie!

A host of local prizefighters gave winning performances in front of a packed house at La Fontaine Bleue in Glen Burnie, MD on Saturday, November 16th.  This card was promoted by Shabazz Brotherz.

In the main event, highly-touted Baltimore, MD middleweight prospect Lorenzo "Truck" Simpson won a relatively-easy six-round unanimous decision over Delvecchio "Del Chapo" Savage of Tuscaloosa, AL.  Simpson, who went a full six rounds for the first time in his career, was able to effectively use his right hand as his jab and lead right hand, keeping Savage off-balance.  In the third round, Simpson landed solid lefts and rights against Savage's head and body that almost made referee Kenny Chevalier stop the contest but Savage was able to survive.  Simpson maintained his effectiveness throughout the second half of the contest and earned the victory.   All three judges (David Braslow, Eric Irizarry and Steve Rados) scored a shutout for Simpson, 60-52.  Simpson remains undefeated at 6-0, four KO's.  Savage falls to 3-5-1, three KO's.

The co-feature saw Baltimore-based cruiserweight "The Silent Assassin" Muhsin Cason win a six-round unanimous decision over a very game Montez "Bigg Mixx" Brown of Virginia Beach, VA.  Cason, the younger brother of former Undisputed Heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman, Sr. and a Prince Ranch Boxing, spent the first round trying to trap the speedy Brown, who seemed to be wary of Cason's power.

That power came to the forefront in the second round when Cason landed a big right hand over the top that dropped Brown in the first minute.  Later in the round, Cason would throw a straight left hand that put Brown on the canvas for the second time.  To his credit, Brown would recover from the two knockdowns and land solid shots against Cason throughout the second half of the contest.  The early advantage Cason earned with the knockdowns proved to be the difference in winning the bout.  Judges Rados and Kenny Chevalier scored the bout, 59-53 while judge Irizarry saw the contest, 58-54 for Cason, who is now 6-0, three KO's.  Brown loses his second straight contest and is now 8-2, six KO's.

The card had successful pro debuts for two of the Avelar Brothers of Germantown, MD.  The youngest of the three brothers, super lightweight Wilfredo, won a four-round unanimous decision over Zaymar Brothers of Philadelphia, PA.  The 19-year-old Avelar used a combination of pressure offense and slick defense to gain the victory.  Brothers stayed on the outside throughout the contest and did not exchange with Avelar, who was able to gain a shutout victory on the cards, 40-36.  Brothers's record dips to 0-1-1.

Middle brother Brian Avelar, a welterweight, also won a four-round shutout victory over the equally debuting Laquan "Six Shooter" Jones of Philadelphia.  The 21-year-old Avelar chased Jones for the bulk of the bout, landing shots to the head and body.  The continuous pressure would lead to an easy win as all three judges (Braslow, Chevalier, and Rados) saw the bout 40-36.  The oldest brother, 23-year-old Tommy Avelar, was scheduled to be on the card but his bout was scratched.

In female action, Baltimore super lightweight "Lady Tyson" Destiny Day-Owens won a four-round unanimous decision over Dasha "Champ Queen" Ragland of Harrisburg, PA.  Day-Owens was able to use her right hand effectively to keep Ragland at bay throughout the contest.  All three judges (Brent Bovell, Irizarry, and Rados) saw a 40-36 shutout for Day-Owens, who is now 2-0.  Ragland is 0-2.

Stone Mountain, GA middleweight Maurice "MGIII" Winslow survived an early knockdown to win a four-round unanimous decision over Dewayne "The Beast" Williams of Philadelphia.  The bout was mostly a tangle fest as the two boxers fell into numerous clinches.  In the first round, Williams gained an early advantage when he landed a straight left hand that dropped Winslow against the ropes. 

The second-round saw Williams lose the advantage he gained when referee David Braslow took a point away for unsportsmanlike conduct after Williams bumped Winslow at the end of the round. Williams would also lose a point in the fourth round for holding.  That, combined with Winslow's increasing offensive output, would tip the judge's scorecards in favor of Winslow.  All three judges (Bovell, Irizarry, and Rados) saw the bout 38-35.  Winslow's record improves to 3-1, two KO's while the Williams record falls to 1-2-1.

The opening contest was the only one that did not go the distance as super welterweight Shinard Bunch of Trenton, NJ scored a first-round TKO over Alberto Delgado of Roanoke, VA.  Bunch would throw a wicked straight left hand that send Delgado crashing to the canvas.  Delgado would beat Kenny Chevalier's count but the ringside physicians decided that Delgado could not continue.  The bout was stopped at 2:06 of the round.  Bunch is now 4-1, four KO's.  Delgado drops to 1-9-4, one KO.

The matchmaker for the card was "The Boxing Diva" Renee Aiken.  Henry "Discombobulating" Jones was the ring announcer.

Marin Challenges Buthelezi For IBO Super Fly Title December 16th In South Africa!

Undefeated Bethesda, MD super flyweight Alexandru "Spartan" Marin will face his biggest challenge to date when he takes on International Boxing Organization Super Flyweight champion Gideon Buthelezi of Boipatong, Gauteng, South Africa on Monday, December 16th in South Africa.

Marin (18-0, 11 KO's) is the reigning IBO Inter-Continental Super Flyweight champion and is the mandatory challenger for Buthelezi (22-5, five KO's).  Marin, a native of Iasi, Romania, is also ranked third by the IBF and fourth by the WBO.  Marin successfully defended his title with a 10-round unanimous decision win over Luis Concepcion on May 11th in Fairfax, VA.  Marin will have a legendary addition to his corner as International Boxing Hall Of Fame boxer and trainer Buddy McGirt will join longtime trainer Bruce Babashan and cutman James Hogan in the corner.

Buthelezi is on his second reign as IBO champion and has held the belt since December of 2015. This will be the sixth defense of his title.  Last time out, Buthelezi made short work of Adrian Jimenez, knocking him out in the first round on July 27th in East London, South Africa.  

Boxing Comes Back To Glen Burnie, MD!

Beltway Pro Boxing makes its return to Glen Burnie, MD on Saturday, November 16th.  However, this Shabazz Brotherz card will not take place at Michael's Eighth Avenue.  This card will originate from La Fontaine Bleue, located at 7514 Ritchie Highway in Glen Burnie.

Headlining the card will be undefeated Baltimore, MD rookie super middleweight Lorenzo "Truck" Simpson who will compete in a six-round contest against Delvecchio Savage of Tuscaloosa, AL.  Simpson (5-0, four KO's) is coming off a second-round TKO over Dewayne Williams on June 22nd in Fort Washington, MD.  Savage (3-4-1, three KO's) has lost his last two bouts, including a six-round unanimous decision loss to Akil Malcolm Knight on August 29th in New Orleans, LA.  The last victory for Savage came in the Beltway when he knocked out Francisco Bustos in the third round on June 29th in Laurel, MD.

Baltimore cruiserweight "The Silent Assassin" Muhsin Cason will be in a six-round co-feature bout against Montez Brown of Virginia Beach, VA.  Cason (5-0, three KO's) last fought on that June 22nd card in Fort Washington, MD and scored a first-round stoppage over Nathaniel Copeland when Copeland injured his left arm.  Brown (8-1, six KO's) looks to rebound from his first pro loss, a first-round knockout at the hands of Joe Jones on April 20th in Fort Washington.

Not only will Cason, the younger brother of former Undisputed World Heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman, Sr., be on the card, but so will Rahman's son, heavyweight Hasim "Goldblooded" Rahman, Jr.  Rahman, Jr. will be in a four-round contest against veteran Lance Gauch of Hannibal, MO.  Rahman, Jr. (8-0, four KO's) is coming off a four-round unanimous decision over Curtis Head on the June 22nd Fort Washington card.  Gauch (8-11-3, four KO's) is unbeaten in his last four contests with three wins and a draw.  However, Gauch has not fought since April of 2017 when he battled to a four-round majority draw against Travis Fulton in Kansas City, MO.

In female action, Baltimore super lightweight "Lady Tyson" Destiny Day-Owens will be in a four-round contest against Dasha "Champ Queen" Ragland of Harrisburg, PA.  Day-Owens (1-0) made a successful pro debut, winning a four-round split decision over Michaele Nogue on January 26th in Waldorf, MD.  Ragland (0-1) lost her pro debut against Nogue by unanimous decision on June 1st in Waldorf.

Odenton, MD middleweight Maurice Winslow III will be in a four-round matchup against Dewayne Williams of Philadelphia, PA.  Winslow (2-1, two KO's) looks to bounce back from his first pro loss, a four-round split decision to Clay Collard on July 6th in Toledo, OH.  Williams (1-1, one KO) has not competed since his second-round KO loss to Simpson on June 22nd.

This card will mark the pro debuts of two of the Avelar Brothers of Germantown, MD.  Featherweight Tommy Avelar is still looking for an opponent while welterweight Brian Avelar will face equally debuting LeQuan Jones of Germantown, MD.  The two Avelars, along with their brother Wilfredo Avelar, have won numerous Washington and Regional Golden Gloves championships.

Also on the card will be welterweight Shinard Bunch of Trenton, NJ who will take on Alberto Delgado of Roanoke, VA in a four-round encounter.  Bunch (3-1, three KO's) fought to a third-round no contest against Vincent Floyd on October 25th in Philadelphia, PA.  Floyd was knocked down twice in the first two rounds of the scheduled six-round bout but suffered a cut after an accidental headbutt in the third round that stopped the contest.  Delgado (1-8-4, one KO) lost a six-round unanimous decision to Greg Jackson on September 21st in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

Dyer Suffers Third-Round TKO In Maine!

Baltimore, MD lightweight Jahmal Dyer lost by third-round TKO to the undefeated "Silent Assassin" William Foster III of New Haven, CT on Saturday, November 9th at the Expo Center in Portland, ME.

According to Mark Vaz of, seconds into the first round, Dyer landed a clean left hook to the temple that briefly rocked Foster, who looked clearly hurt. It did not take long for Foster to regroup, however, as he soon found his range, picking his spots and winning the round.

Taking over in the second, Foster used hand speed and combination punching, punctuated by a fast, clean left hook he was able to land at will throughout. After a warning for a few low blows, referee Mike Ryan deducted a point from Foster, evening the round on the scorecards.

In the third round, however, Foster came out with a vengeance, picking Dyer apart, landing to the head and body, eventually finding his way through the defense and hurting Dyer, eventually sending him to the canvas with a barrage of clean punches. Referee Ryan called a halt to the bout at 2:55.

Dyer's record falls to 9-3, five KO's while Foster remains undefeated at 11-0, eight KO's.

Roach, Jr. Loses World Title Bid By Unanimous Decision in Fresno!

Upper Marlboro, MD super featherweight Lamont Roach, Jr. lost his bid to win a world title, dropping a unanimous decision to WBO Super Featherweight champion Jamel "Semper Fi" Herring of Cincinnati, OH on Saturday at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, CA.  The bout was shown on ESPN +.

According to reports, Herring was very effective with a stiff right jab early in the bout that didn't allow Roach, Jr. to get off his own punches. Roach, Jr. tried to pick up the pace in the middle rounds but he was being warned by referee Marcos Rosales for rabbit punches behind the head.

According to Jake Donovan of, Herring was denied a knockdown in the ninth round when he landed a sweeping right hook.  Roach, Jr.'s feet briefly tangled with Herring's at that moment and referee Rosales ruled a slip.

Roach nearly claimed a game-changer in the championship rounds. Herring was sliding backward but failed to keep the challenger at bay. Roach took advantage of the sequence, smothering the defending titlist on the inside and landing a looping right hand just behind Herring's ear, leaving him briefly unsteady but managing to clinch and make it to the bell.  Herring would win the bout by scores of 115-113 and 117-111 (twice).

Roach, Jr. loses for the first time as a pro and his record is now 19-1-1, seven KO's.  Herring makes the first successful defense of his title and he is now 21-2, 10 KO's.

Beltway Boxers To Make Voyage to Philadelphia December 6th!

A quartet of Beltway Boxers will head to the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA on Friday, December 6th for some solid bouts on a King's Promotions card.

One local boxer will be in the main event as world-ranked welterweight Mykal "The Professor" Fox will battle an opponent to be determined in a 10-round contest.  Fox (21-1, five KO's) is ranked 15th in the world by the WBA and is coming off a dominating 10-round unanimous decision win over Eudy Bernardo on September 14th in Bethlehem, PA.  Fox won that bout by shutout on all three judge's scorecards.  This will be the fourth bout for Fox this year.

Two of the co-feature bouts will showcase Beltway Boxers.  "The Sexy Albanian" Genc Pllana of Hagerstown, MD will be in an eight-round bout against undefeated Kalvin "Hot Sauce" Henderson of Fayetteville, AR.  Pllana (7-1, four KO's) last fought on October 24th and scored a first-round knockout over Alex Lara in Washington, DC.  This will be Pllana's second eight-round encounter.  The first one resulted in Pllana's only loss, a majority decision to Raphael Igbokwe on August 23rd in Houston, TX.  Pllana has also been extremely busy -- this will be his seventh contest of the year.

Henderson (12-0, eight KO's) scored a third-round TKO over Antowyan Aikens on May 10th at the 2300 Arena.  This will be Henderson's third straight trip to that venue.

The other eight-round co-feature will pit DC super bantamweight Marcus "Dreamcrusher" Bates against veteran Jesus "Sargento" Martinez of Hollywood, FL by way of Colombia.  Bates (10-1-1, eight KO's) won his last bout by eight-round unanimous decision over Saul Eduardo Hernandez on August 23rd in Houston.  Bates is ranked 14th in the world by the WBA.  Martinez (26-10, 13 KO's) has lost two straight and four of his last five contests.  Martinez was stopped in the fifth round by TJ Doheny on October 12th in Chicago, IL.

This card will also mark the return of undefeated Frederick, MD super middleweight Devar "Jengawar" Ferhadi, who will take on fellow undefeated boxer Vincent Baccus of Okmulgee, OK  in a six-round bout.  Ferhadi (7-0, six KO's) has not fought since August of 2016 when he knocked out Christopher Petty in the third round in Crystal City, VA.  Ferhadi was in his native Kurdistan completing medical school studies during his absence.  Baccus (4-0-1, three KO's) won a five-round unanimous decision over Steven Crowfield on February 23rd in Oklahoma City, OK.

Beltway Boxers Shine In Oxon Hill!

Saturday night's TGB Promotions card at the MGM National Harbor Casino in Oxon Hill, MD proved to be a positive night for Beltway Boxers.  Six locals competed, six locals won.

The Undefeated Russell Brothers of Capitol Heights, MD put on dominating performances en route to knockout victories.  Super lightweight Antuanne "The Last" Russell kept his perfect record intact with a crushing second-round knockout of Juan Huertas of Panama City, Panama. The bout was shown on FS2.  Russell went to work quickly and battered the overmatched Huertas.  In the second, Russell's continued punishment dropped Huertas to one knee.  Huertas could not beat referee Bill Clancy's ten-count and the bout was stopped at 40 seconds.  Russell is now 12-0, 12 KO's.  Huertas is 14-2-1, 10 KO's.

Bantamweight Antonio "Another" Russell made short work of Samuel Gutierrez of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.  Russell landed a wicked overhead right to drop Gutierrez to the canvas. 
Referee Kenny Chevalier stopped the bout at 2:01 of the first round.  Russell remains undefeated at 16-0, 12 KO's.  Gutierrez falls to 16-26-6, six KO's.

In another bout that made the FS2 telecast, Washington, DC super lightweight Shyngyskhan Tazhibay won a four-round unanimous decision over Nicolas Atillo Velasquez of Buenos Aires, Argentina.  Tazhibay, a native of Kazakhstan, used a solid fundamental attack to earn the deserved victory.  Scores were not given but all three judges were in agreement. Tazhibay remains undefeated at 9-0, two KO's.  Velasquez is now 11-7, three KO's.

Glenarden, MD lightweight Drayvontay Speed Rawls captured an eight-round unanimous decision over Wanzell "Venom" Ellison of Newark, NJ.  The two men traded blows throughout the bout.  However,  Speed Rawls was able to avoid some of Ellison's punches as the bout went into the later rounds.  Ellison landed an accidental low blow in the fourth round but was not penalized.  All three judges scored the bout 79-72 for Speed Rawls, who is now 13-1-1, eight KO's.  Ellison falls to 11-2-1, five KO's.

Hyattsville,  MD super lightweight Patrick "YG Pat" Harris pummeled Joaquim Carneiro of Ceara, Brazil for six rounds en route to a technical knockout.

Super lightweight Tyrek "I.G.B. Irby of Landover, MD remained undefeated with an eight-round unanimous decision over a very game Joaquin Chavez of Los Angeles, CA.  Irby took early control of the bout, landing left hooks to drop Chavez in the first and second rounds.  By the middle of the bout, Chavez made things a little difficult for Irby by landing good shots of his own.  The early deficit on the scorecards was too much for Chavez to overcome and Irby went on to win by scores of 78-72 and 79-73 twice.  Irby is now 9-0, three KO's while Chavez falls to 9-19-4, two KO's.

In the main event on the card, Brian "El Boxi" Carlos Castano of Buenos Aires,  Argentina stopped Wale "Lucky Boy" Omotoso of Los Angeles, CA by way of Nigeria at the end of the fifth round to win the WBO Intercontinental Junior Middleweight title.  The bout was an easy one for Castano as he outslugged Omotoso throughout the bout.  Omotoso couldn't return any offense.  A hurt shoulder made things more difficult for Omotoso and forced the doctors at ringside to stop the contest at the end of the round.  Castano remains undefeated at 19-0-1, 13 KO's while Omotoso falls to 28-5, 22 KO's.

In the co-feature bout, Javier Fortuna of La Roma, Dominican Republic put on a dominating performance on the way to stopping Jesus Cuellar of Buenos Aires, Argentina in the second round.  This battle of former world super featherweight champions was a relatively easy one for Fortuna as he dropped Cuellar twice, the first was in the first round.  The two men threw rights at the same time.  Fortune's right landed flush and dropped Cuellar.  In the second,  Fortuna sent a left-right combination to Cuellar's head to knock him back down.  Another quick flurry forced referee Bill Clancy to stop the bout at 2:01 of the second.   Fortuna captured the WBC Continental Americas Lightweight title and raises his record to 35-2-1, 24 KO's.  Cuellar drops to 29-4, 22 KO's.

David O. Morrell, Jr., a light heavyweight from Santa Clara, Cuba, stopped Quentin Rankin of Charlotte, NC in the second round.  Morrell, who was competing in a scheduled eight-round encounter after only one previous pro bout, did damage early with a strong offensive attack that led to a vicious body shot that stopped Rankin in his tracks.  Referee David Braslow stopped the bout at 1:01 of the round.  Morrell is 2-0, two KO's.  Rankin is now 15-7-2, 12 KO's.

Brehan, TX welterweight "Cowboy" Ryan Karl won by fifth-round technical decision when his opponent, Berman "Snake" Aguilar of San Jose,  Costa Rica.  Aguilar gained the early advantage in the bout, knocking down Karl with an overhand right in the first round.  However, in setting up that punch, Aguilar hurt his left hand and the hand got progressively worse during the bout.  Referee Bill Clancy, on the advice of the ringside doctors, stopped the contest at the end of the fifth round.  Karl raised his record to 18-2, 12 KO's.  Aguilar falls to 15-6-1, five KO's.

Undefeated welterweight Anthony "ATV" Velasquez scored a seventh-round TKO over Michael "The Hammer" Crain of Smyrna, DE.  Velasquez stayed poised and disciplined throughout the contest as he controlled the action with solid head and body shots.  Crain attempted to mount an offensive attack but he was overwhelmed by Velasquez's onslaught.  Referee David Braslow stopped the bout at 1:59 seconds of the seventh round to remain perfect at 8-0, eight KO's. Crain falls to 3-4, one KO.

Philadelphia, PA super welterweight Paul Kroll scored a 4th round TKO over Farhad Fatulla of Baku, Azerbaijan.  Kroll knocked down Fatulla twice during the bout before it was stopped by referee David Braslow at 2:05 of the fourth round.  Kroll is 6-0, five KO's while Fatulla is 1-4.

In the walkout bout, Ranfis Encarnacion of San Cristobal, Dominican Republic scored an easy first-round knockout over Emmanuel Dominguez of Aguascalientes, Mexico.  Encarnacion used a great left-right combination to drop Dominguez for the count.  The bout ended at 59 seconds.  Encarnacion is still undefeated at 17-0, 13 KO's.  Dominguez falls to 24-9-2, 16 KO's.
