Gamboa vs Rios

For both fighters this will be the biggest competition each has ever faced. Gamboa dominated the featherweight class and decides to jump up two weight classes to take on Brandon Rios. Rios lost his title back in December when he failed to make the 135 pound limit up in New York against John Murray. Yuriorkis Gamboa is an offensive fighter that never had to worry about getting hit because he is so fast. Will this style work with the bigger and stronger Brandon Rios? This is something that the Gamboa camp will have to think about. April 14 on HBO from Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas will show who trained for who.

Keystone Boxing Presents World Class Professional Boxing on March 10!

Gene Molovinsky of Keystone boxing has made a great decision by bringing professional boxing back to the Washington DC Convention Center following the HBO Khan vs Peterson fight last December. That fight drew a large crowd and hopefully that trickles down to the March 10th Keystone show. With the main event being Dusty Harrison who was on the under card of the Khan vs Peterson bout, selling tickets shouldn't be a problem. Harrison (The Youngest Professional Fighter in the United States of America) has a large local fan base and can sell well over a few hundred tickets on just his name alone. Ty Barnett with 18 wins and 12(KO's) is also another featured bout. So boxing is making its way back to the DMV and hopefully the fans will come out to support Keystone Boxing and all the local fighters.

Professional boxing talent in the DMV.

If you sit back and think of all the boxing talent right here in the Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia areas you will see that this area  had and still very much has a long list of boxing hopefuls. There are notable names like Sugar Ray Leonard, Mark "Too Sharp" Johnson, Keith Holmes, Andrew Council, Sharmba Mitchell, Riddick Bowe, Lamont Pearson, Darryl Tyson, Derrell Coley, William Joppy, and current fighters like, Lamont and Anthony Peterson, Gary Russell, DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley, Tony Thompson, Seth Mitchell, Thomas Snow, Dusty Harrison, Alantez Fox, Ty Barnett, Brandon Quarles, Tony Jeter, Jimmy Lange. I can't forget about our Lady WBC and WIBA Middleweight Champion Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson and many more. Out of the names I listed, there are some former and current title holders. Now you tell me why boxing isn't as large in our own home town. Let me start. For one and I think this is the biggest reason, the people here do not support local fighters like they should. 2. SOME but not all the fighters train like they should be training to become and stay champions. 3. SOME but not all the fighters go out to promote themselves to get the home crowd interested in the sport. Now this is only what I think. The people who are reading this might have other reason or might even disagree to what I wrote. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
