Harrison vs Bowman Face off

Friday night April 6, 2012 at the weight-ins located at the Fitz Casino and Hotel in Tunica Mississippi Dusty Harrison (153lbs) and his opponent Anthony Bowman (152lbs) faced off after weighing in. Harrison is in good shape and will be fighting at the heaviest weight ever in his career as a boxer. He carries the weight well and it looks like the weight doesn't slow him down at all. Tomorrow night Harrison and Bowman will be the 5th fight on a card of 9 bouts.

Brandon Quarles looks for 9th Win

Since 2003 Brandon Quarles has been in the ring and working towards being a great fighter. As a amateur he had 70 fights and made the leap into the professional ranks in 2010. Popular trainer and manager George Peterson saw the talent that Brandon was working with and took him in as one of his fighters. The most popular fighter that George has is well known WBC Middleweight Champion Paul "The Punisher" Williams 41-2-(27KO's).  Brandon is a hard working fighter and family man. He lives in Alexandria, VA with his girlfriend and 2 children. Brandon also loves dogs. He makes a 45minute to 1 hour trip to train at the Club One Fitness Center in Millersville, Maryland. This is where Paul Williams works out also. George Peterson has been doing a  good job building up his fighter Brandon Quarles. It shows with Quarles having an 8-0 (2KO"s) record.  Brandon had a 8 month layoff before his last fight in February against Omar Sims. The layoff wasn't  the doing of Quarles but it was because the fights he was scheduled to have all fell through. On April 14,2012 they will be heading south to Wilson, NC to face 7-7-1 Rodney Green.  With a win in Wilson, NC Brandon will have a record of 9-0 and that will put him in the direction Peterson wants him to be headed in. Brandon says he has been training hard and is looking forward to his fight with Green. He also said he couldn't find any videos of Green so he could study but that wouldn't stop his game plan for the fight.

Ortiz vs Berto II


Trash Talkers of Boxing

Trash talking will always be a big part of boxing. It sales tickets and it intensifies the buildup of the fight. The trash talking always starts at the end of one fight when the fighter calls out his next opponent. Next it is at the the fighters workout session when he says how bad he is going to beat the opponent and then it ends at the press conference for the media when both fighters face off head to head.
