Tony Jeter:  “It’s Tony Jeter versus Jimmy Lange again in what we're calling ‘The Rematch. I’m a little surprised that Jimmy wants to get back in the ring with me after the beating he suffered in our first fight. I’m very respectful of Jimmy and what he’s done in the past, and I even have to say I like Jimmy.  However, on November 15th we are not friends, he will be my enemy, and my intention is to win even more convincingly than I did in 2012.  I am training hard and will be ready to put on a great show for all the fans.  I am looking to pick up in the first round of this fight right where I left off in the 10th round of our first fight. ”

The Patriot Center is the location where Lange has packed out for 15 consecutive cards. November15th will be the 16th card that Lange will headline. 

Jimmy Lange: “I'm looking forward to this fight more than any in my career. I’m offering no excuses for losing last time because excuses are not my style.  I’m training very hard for the rematch and I’m doing it my way. I’m excited to return to the ring and thankful that Tony has offered me this opportunity for a rematch."

Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson Puts WIBA Title On The Line Against Arlene Blencowe!

Tori “Sho Nuff” Nelson will look for her fourth successful title defense when she puts her WIBA welterweight crown on the line against Arlene Blencowe Saturday, September 27 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA.

A three-time world champion, the pound-for-pound ranked Nelson’s professional record is 10-0 with 3 draws and 1 win by knockout. In 2011, she traveled to Trinidad to outpoint Lorissa Rivas for the WBC middleweight title and she’s held the WIBA welterweight crown since September of 2013. The Virginia native most recently outpointed tough Nicole Woods over ten rounds on June 28.

Most in boxing recognize that records can be deceiving. In today’s era, many fighters pile up 20-plus wins against weak opposition. While this looks good on paper, questions definitely arise about how they’d fare against serious opponents. On the contrary, there are some good fighters that face quality foes off the bat but don't have great records; fighters like Arlene Blencowe.

In her professional debut, Blencowe defeated unbeaten Nadine Browne (2-0-1) in a six round match. Two bouts later, she dominated Daniella Smith (12-3) over ten rounds to capture two world titles. In her most recent fight, Blencowe dropped a controversial decision against undefeated Sabrina Ostowari (7-0), who also missed weight for their match. To meet Nelson, she’s traveling more than 10,000 miles from her native Australia and plans to return home with a world title around her waist.

“I believe this will be Tori’s most challenging fight to date,” said James Hogan, CEO of Ponytail Promotions. “Regardless of her pro record, Blencowe is a serious fighter and is tougher than a two dollar steak. A lot of fighters would’ve avoided her because she doesn't have a glossy record, but Tori Nelson is an elite fighter and in order to be the best you've got to take on all challengers.”

Highly-touted Tyriesha “Lady Tiga” Douglas of Baltimore  faces Whitney Gunter in the semi-main event of the evening. Douglas, 5-0 (1 KO), is considered an elite prospect and is tentatively scheduled to fight for a world title in November.

USBU cruiserweight kingpin Travis Reeves, Seth Billups, Alexandru Marin, Larry Pryor, Edgar Torres and Henry Goss will all appear in separate undercard bouts.

“Ponytail Promotions is pleased with the talent we have on the undercard,” stated Hogan. “Billups and Marin have looked great. Alexandru Marin continues to improve and Travis Reeves is on a roll. The fans will not only get to see a world title fight and a future champion in Tyriesha, but a quality card from top to bottom.”

Tickets to “World Championship Boxing” start at $50 and are available by going to or calling 410-499-5361. Doors open at 7 pm and the opening bell will sound an hour later.

“Nothing will be done to compromise Dusty's health. Once we receive medical clearance and Buddy is comfortable with the pre-fight preparation schedule, we can focus on Dusty's next bout," added Fried.

They have done an exceptional job in preserving the brand; by remaining a mainstay in our community; and have successfully expanded their business beyond the 'U' Street corridor.  I am honored by their support," says Mr. Barry.
