 In the main event of the Jeter Promotions card at the Event Center at Live! Casino Hotel in Hanover, MD, Stivens "Superman" Bujaj of New York City by way of Albania won an eight-round unanimous decision over Catonsville, MD cruiserweight Luther "Lights Out" Smith.

In the first couple of rounds Smith and Bujaj battled very evenly. Neither fighter had the edge as they landed good shots on each other. Bujaj was shaking off some ring rust as Smith looked to land the knockout punch early. In the third round things seemed to change for Bujaj as he started to land more punches to close out the round. In the fourth round Bujaj kept the momentum going and started to take control as Smith's punch output slowed down. Smith switched from his natural southpaw stance to conventional and was very effective when he did. For some reason he returned to the southpaw style and Bajaj took full advantage of it. Bajaj landed the scoring shots as Smith stayed defensive for the remainder of the eight-round contest. Judges David Braslow and John Gradowski scored the bout 78-74 while Brent Bovell saw the contest 77-75 all for Bajaj.

Bujaj's record remains impressive at (17-2-1, 11 KO's) while  Smith falls to (12-5, 10 KO's).

Undercard Results From The Jeter Promotions Card At The Live! Casino Hotel!


(Photos by Daniel Cork) In the opening bout of the Jeter Promotions card inside the Event Center at the Live! Casino Hotel in Hanover, MD, Philadelphia, PA welterweight Corey "The Thoroughbred" Weekley defeated Champ "Preacherman" Moultrie of Ellicott City, MD by knockout in the third round at 2:26. 


Weekley took full advantage of the ineffective punches Moultrie had to offer. There was no power even at the times he would land a shot or two. Weekley on the other hand had effective power with the larger punch output of his offense. In the third-round Weekley landed a right hand that sent Moultrie to the canvas of a eight count. After Moultrie made it back to his feet Weekley continued to pressure him until referee Brent Bovell stopped the contest. 

Corey Weekley gets his first win and is now (1-2, 1 KO) while Champ Moultrie starts his boxing career off at (0-1).

In a scheduled four-round lightweight bout the Baltimore City Police Officer out of Cockeysville, MD Brandon "Brody" Chambers defeated Fred Thornton of Shelby, NC by TKO at 1:16 of the second-round.


In the opening round it was Thornton who was the first to apply pressure. Chambers stayed calm while using good head movement to avoid the wide shots Thornton was trying to land. Chambers soon stepped up his offensive as he was able to find his distance. Chamber started to throw more accurate punches as he landed a hard right hand to stun Thornton to the point where it caused referee Bill Clancy to stop the contest. 

Chambers gets his first victory to improve to (1-0-1, 1 KO) while Thornton is (0-2).

Elkridge, MD lightweight "The Red Comet" Dante Cox stops Hakim Smith of Philadelphia, PA at the end of round two. Cox gets a refreshing victory after suffering a eye opening loss to Drayvontay Speed Rawls a few months ago on a previous Jeter Promotions card. 


In this bout against Smith it was a completely different Cox. "The Red Comet" put together a complete offense that was full of good body and head shots. It didn't take much time for the power shots to take effect. Cox closed out the second-round by landing some hard uppercuts and right hands to the face and body as the bell sounded. After making it to his stool Smith's corner decided not to send him out for the third round.  They signaled to referee
David Braslow to stop the bout.

Cox is now (4-1, 3 KO's) while Smith is now (1-3-1).

AJ "We Are" Williams the super middleweight out of  Cockeysville, MD won a four-round unanimous decision over Brock Willis of Clarksburg, West Virginia.

A.J. Williams was the taller fighter in this contest, but made it a little harder than it needed to be for himself. At times Williams used his jab very well but didn't keep it consistent.  When Williams slacked off the jab Willis took that opportunity to slide inside and land some looping shots of his own. Williams returned to using his jab to set up some good body and head shots to go on to get the victory. All three judges scored the contest the same at 40-36.

Williams is now (2-1, 1 KO) while Willis falls to (1-4, 1 KO).

He kept a tight defense as he landed jabs and body shots with much caution. Marrero tried to counter but wasn't in position to land his punches consistently. Judges Brent Bovell, Bill Clancy, and Eric Irizarry scored every round for Loften at (40-36). 

Loften, improves to (3-1, 1 KO) as Marrero's falls to (1-3-1).

In a super featherweight bout Ebrima Jawara of Germantown, MD battled to a six-round unanimous decision win over Marquel Johns of Fort Washington,MD. 



Jawara, the taller fighter did a good job of using his jab to keep Johns at a reasonable distance to control the first two rounds. Johns changed things for a moment when he slipped inside of Jawara's jab to land a hard left that dropped Jawara to the canvas. Jawara looked to be hurt as made it to his feet at the count of nine. To finish out the round Jawara did a smart thing by holding onto Johns until the bell sounded. That one minute break in between rounds was enough for Jawara to get back into the fight and take control.  He landed a hard right hand that hurt Johns in round four. Jawara used his jab to set up some good combinations to finish the contest. Judges Dave Braslow and Eric Irizarry scored the bout 58-55 while Bill Clancy saw the bout 57-56. 

Jawara  is now (2-1, 1 KO) while Johns is now (7-2-2, 6 KO's). 


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



In a scheduled four-round featherweight contest Jordan White of Washington, DC defeated Vincent Jennings of Kentwood, MI by TKO.



Jordan White took his time in the opening round as he tried to find his distance to size up Jennings. He landed a few shots to the body of Jennings but came up a hair short as he tried landing to the head. The second and third rounds had much of the same results but White still was in complete control of the contest. Things changed in the fourth-round as White press forward and became more aggressive to sent Jennings to the canvas with a hard left hand. Jennings beat the count, but White continued to pressure him against the ropes until referee Dave Braslow jumped in to stop the contest in the fourth-round at 1:34. 

Jordan White is now (9-1, 7 KO's) while Vincent Jennings drops to (6-9-2, 4KO's).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------




In the co-feature of the evening it was Bowie, MD super middleweight "The King's Son" Jerry Odom making his hometown return to the ring with a second-round knockout over Tahir Thomas of Salisbury, MD at 2:10.

This bout started with both fighters throwing hard shots in the hopes of connecting with bad intentions. At times they did land on each other. Thomas landed his looping shots as Odom returned his own hard shots. It was in the second round when the hardest blow of the fight would find a home. It was Odom's right hand that landed first to send Thomas to the canvas in dramatic fashion. It took no count from referee Brent Bovell.  He automatically waved the bout off giving Odom the knockout victory.

Odom improves to (16-3-1, 15 KO's) while Thomas falls to (4-2-1, 3 KO's).

Gervonta Davis vs. Ricardo Nunez Final Press Conference Quotes!




GERVONTA DAVIS

“Coming back to Baltimore and bringing this big event to the city means a lot. I’m training with my brothers that I grew up with and I’m around family and friends. It’s exciting."

“The main reason why I wanted to come back home was because of people getting killed in this city. I want to be seen as one of the people who can bring the city together on a positive note. I fought in LA, London and New York, so it was about time for me to come home."

“Camp has been great. I can’t wait to put on a show Saturday night. I appreciate Núñez for taking this fight. This undercard has great fights and possible future opponents for me. I’m just soaking it all in right now."

“July 27 we’re going to put on a great show, me and Núñez. We both have big knockout power and may the best man win. I hope he’s ready, because I was born ready."

“I had a hard camp, so I don’t think it’s going to go past five rounds. I’m in a good space in my career and I’m excited to get in the ring."

“He’s a confident fighter with a lot of knockouts. We’re taking him seriously. It’s going to be a great night. He’s coming to take my spot. He’s coming up into my house, so I’ll be ready."

“People are going to see that I’m serious on Saturday. The rest of the division and everyone calling me out better be ready too. It’s all business on Saturday."

“It feels amazing to have this support from my city. I’m working my way up to being a big star and it’s unbelievable. I’m anxious and excited to get in the ring. I don’t want to rush the moment, because I should enjoy it. I’m soaking it all in."

“I know I’m facing a good fighter who can crack. I’m not taking him lightly at all. Mentally and physically I’m all-in. I have the whole city on my back and I have to come in there and show up on Saturday."

“I believe that Núñez is excited to be a part of this. He’s not scared and he’s enjoying the moment like I am. Hopefully he’s at his best Saturday night, but he won’t know how good I am until he gets in the ring. Right now it’s a game to him, but we’ll see Saturday night.”

RICARDO NÚÑEZ

“This is my first time in the United States and Baltimore is a beautiful city. I’m excited to bring a great fight to these fans. It’s my first time fighting for a world title and I’m happy to take advantage of it."

“I’ve had a strict diet and strong training camp. We’re going to give the fans a great party on Saturday night and it’s going to be a great fight."

“I have a high knockout percentage and I know that I can knock Gervonta Davis out. When we get in the ring, we will see who’s the best. He’s the champion, but I’m here to take the victory. I’m here to win."

“Losses make you stronger. The loss I had made me more focused on the sport. I’ve worked harder in my training camp since then."

“We’re a few days out from the fight and I’m ready to knock him out and win the title. Anything can happen in the ring, so I hope he’s ready. The world is going to know who I am after this fight."

“I’m very confident about this fight. It’s going to be a great fight but I will get the victory. I’ve been in the gym working harder than I ever have. I can’t speak for him, but I hope he’s worked hard too."

“My style is to wait to see how my opponent fights and then adjust from there. No matter what, I’m a hard puncher."

“Saturday night it’s going to be a big spectacle. My entire country is going to be watching. I think we are going to see a knockout, not sure in what round, but we may get one."

“Hardship led me to boxing. When my first daughter was born I was unemployed, I worked construction to make ends meet. I found boxing soon after and here I am."

“We’ve watched tape on Davis. We have studied him, broken his style down and we have a solid game plan. He’s not going to see me coming."

“My idol in boxing is my fellow Panamanian Roberto Duran and I want to do be able to do the things he has for our country. I’m here to make a great name for myself and my country.”
