Just two weeks ago (March 10,2012) Gene Molovinsky of Keystone Promotions presented a great fight card at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. They decided back in mid January to put the March 10th eight bout show together. In just 2 months the show was a complete sale out and the fans loved every bout. Their timing could not have been better. Golden Boy Promotions and HBO came to DC back in December 10, 2011 to kick start things by hosting two of the best local fighters in the area being DC's Lamont Peterson beating Amir Khan from the United Kingdom for the WBA Super World and IBF light welterweight titles, Brandywine Maryland's Seth Mitchell defeating Timur Ibragimov from Tashkent, Uzbekistan in an impressive 2nd round TKO. Both fighters have upcoming fights. Peterson will be facing Khan again for the WBA  and IBF rematch on May 19,2012 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Seth Mitchell on April 28,2012 will be fighting Chazz Witherspoon at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. So Keystone Promotions is starting to keep the boxing trend going in the DC area. The fans in DC will have lots to watch in the next two months to come. Gene Molovinsky wasted no time by reserving the May 12th date so the fans will have another bigger and exciting fight card to see. Tickets will be coming soon for May 12th fights at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center so stay on the look out for them.

Chop Chop needs only 3 Rounds

During DeMarcus Chop Chop Corley's evening workout at the Old School Boxing Gym he said he has only 16 days until he fights for the IBO title. Corley, the NABF Champion says "It can't get here fast enough." On April 7, 2012 in St. Maarten Corley will be fighting Luis Ernesto Jose for the IBO and UBC titles. He already claims a victory and said he will need only 3 rounds to finish the fight. Corley explains each round. "Round 1 I will get him in trouble. Round 2 get him hurt. Round 3 finish him off." Looks like the Washington DC area is starting  to build champions and top contenders again.

Peterson vs Khan LA Press Conference

Golden Boy Promotions, Head Banger Promotions and Khan Promotions had another day for the Press out west in Los Angeles, California. They are really looking forward to a 2nd showdown of Peterson vs Khan. The fight card is called NO DOUBT.  The fight is scheduled Live on HBO May 19, 2012 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Peterson seems to be more than ready and even Timothy Bradley predicts a KO for Peterson over Amir Khan. Khan has a chip on his shoulder and thinks that Peterson took something from him. Peterson fought his heart out on the night of December 10, 2011 and it seems as if Khan is saying in so many words that you didn't beat me Lamont. In front of the cameras both camps seem to have much respect for each other but deep inside Peterson and Khan want to KO each other. May 19th will show who is the Unified Super Lightweight World Champion.
