Tori " SHO NUFF " Nelson is the WBC & WIBA Champion

Tonight at the Patriot Center the WIBA Championship was on the line.  Already WBC Champion Tori Nelson faced off with Vashon Living for the WIBA Championship. It was 10 good rounds of boxing from the ladies. They seemed to be the crowd favorite of all the 7 bouts. Nelson proved that she was well deserving of the title by pressing Living each and every round. Nelson put Living down on the canvas 3 times. Living was showing her toughness by getting up and continuing her quest for the title but came up short. Now Tori "SHO NUFF" Nelson is the WBC and the New WIBA Champion.

Tony Jeter vs Jose Felix REPEAT or REVENGE

On February 25, 2012 at Club One Fitness in Millersville , Maryland , local middleweight Tony Jeter (12-3-1, 9 KOs) will take on Jose Felix (11-11-2, 4 KOs) from Richmond Hill , Virginia for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ All-America Middleweight title.  The fight is a rematch of their December encounter, where Felix stopped Jeter in the fifth round.

Club One Fitness, an 18,000 square foot full service health club, complete with a boxing gym and an Olympic size boxing ring, is home of former world champion Paul Williams training camp since 2010, as well as many other up and coming professional boxers.  

The February 25th card, promoted by Jeter Promotions, will be in the first pro/am card promoted at Club One Fitness.  In addition to the Jeter-Felix rematch, the card will feature many up and coming, undefeated boxers from the area, including Brandon Quarrles, Sherman Artis, ______ and ______.  The amateur portion of the card will feature the amateur boxing team from Club One Fitness and LA Boxing primarily. 

Having lost to accomplished fighters such as Pawel Wolak and Paul Delgado, and undefeated prospect Bobby Bryant, Felix was a clear underdog when he got the better of Jeter this past December. Jeter is looking to get even on February 25, while Felix will be confident that he can win again.

Will it be repeat or revenge?

9 Year Old 2 Sport Athlete Deric "SCOOTER" Davis

Deric and Keisha Davis, parents of Scooter had no clue that on July 7, 2002 their new born baby boy would be such a gifted athlete. Scooter is a pretty good QB for his dads' / coach Pop Warner Championship football team The South County Chargers. Most importantly Scooter is an honor roll student at Cora L. Rice Elementary School in  Landover Maryland.  One day while Scooter and his parents were out shopping. Keisha Davis was sitting in the car and saw this guy with tattoos all over his arms and a boxing shirt on walk up to Scooter and her husband Deric. She thought to herself "OH MY GOD MY HUSBAND IS ABOUT TO GET INTO A FIGHT". Little did they know this guy was Buddy Harrison, owner of The Old School Boxing Gym located at the Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD.  Mr. Harrison gave Deric Davis his business card and extended the offer to bring Scooter by the gym. From there it was history. Scooter was 7 years old when he started boxing and has been an Old School Boxer from then on. You have to be 8 years old to begin amateur competition boxing. His first boxing coach was Doug Avery. Coach Doug was the right person for Scooter. He showed Scooter how to sharpen up his already gifted ability to throw punches and move in the ring. Do to coach Doug's family and job commitments he no longer coaches Scooter, but on a coaching aspect Scooter never was left behind. Flip Johnson, well known trainer and  1978 Golden Glove National Champion jumped right in to become Scooters new coach. Between coaches Doug Avery and Flip Johnson Scooter has a 3-1 record. The one loss was in the Silver Glove Championship. Not bad for just 3 months of amateur boxing and starting in the Silver Glove Competitions. Scooter has family members that were former professional boxers, Brian "Showtime" Cook, and Boxing Hall Of Fame-World Champion Mark "Too Sharp" Johnson. Sugar Ray Leonard and Floyd Mayweather Jr are Scooter's favorite boxers.  It's still early but don't be surprised if you see Deric "SCOOTER" Davis  on television someday!!!                           

DC's New Found but Much Known Boxing Star Dusty Harrison

On March 10,2012 at the Washington DC Convention Center, 17 year old and the Youngest Professional Boxer in the United States of America will go for his 4th win. Being 3-0 (1KO) really doesn't show how good Harrison is. He has had close to 200 amateur fights and won  90% of those.  He fights like a pure veteran and it show very much so inside the ring. He keeps his opponents  at a distance and never gets hit. When you see Dusty Harrison in a boxing match you would never believe he is only 17. So come out on March 10, 2012 and see what the talk around the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area is all about.

Count Down for Manny Pacquiao.

How much time does Manny Pacquiao really have left as a top ranked boxer? You all know that Pacquiao stays so busy outside of the ring in his country the Philippines. When or if he becomes president there, he most likely wont be able to continue boxing. June 9, 2012 at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas he will have another big test with the WBO Light Welterweight Champion Timothy Bradley. Top Rank gave Bradley the high profile co-feature slot on the Pacquiao-Marquez III pay-per-view card in November.  I think Bradley will step up to the test. He has lots of speed and seems to be a pretty physically strong fighter. So on June 9th the fans will see if Pacquiao still can continue fighting or start a stronger move to politics.
