In the co-featured bout junior middleweight Jeremy "The Truth" Trussell of Baltimore. MD scored a sixth-round TKO over Tyeson "H-Bomb" Harrison of Greensboro, NC. During this contest Trussell seemed to be very cautious as he was landing the most shots during the entire bout. The way the bout ended could be the turning point of Trussell's career. With 10 seconds remaining in the final round, Trussell landed a hard,solid right hand that dropped Harrison to the canvas. Referee Kenny Chevalier took a few steps back to give Harrison the opportunity to walk towards him. At that time Chevalier saw that Harrison was still off balance and had no choice but to put a stop to the bout at 2:59.

Trussell improves to 9-2-1, (7 KO's) while Harrison is 2-2, (1 KO).


Two debuting local lightweights, Glenarden, MD's Dravontay Speed-Rawls and Beltsville, MD's "Mighty" Joel Young were in a four-round contest. Rawls gets the split decision over "Mighty" Joel Young.  Both fighters were exchanging very well but neither fighter could dominate the bout so it was left up to the judges. Judges Chevalier and John Gradowski scored the bout 39-38 and 39-37 for Rawls while judge Don Risher saw the bout for Young, 39-37.
Heavyweight Carlos "The Diamond Cutter" Black of Washington, DC won his pro debut with a four-round unanimous decision over Lonnie Kornegay of Baltimore, MD. This bout could have easily been a draw. Black sent Karnegay to the canvas twice in the second round. Kornegay bounced back well after the knockdowns because Black looked very tired in rounds three and four.
