Here Are The Results From Eastern Market In Washington, DC!

 The results of the Jeter Promotions/RBA Promotions card at North Hall at Eastern Market in Washington, DC!

In a main event six-round contest between undefeated Gaithersburg, MD welterweight Gerome "GQ" Quigley faced Dontre "Pound For Pound" King of Cambridge, MD at the North Hall at Eastern Market located in Washington, DC. King went down to one knee after a solid uppercut from Quigley in the first round. Guigley came out in the second round and landed another shot to the head of King to get the knockout at nineteen seconds. 

Gerome "GQ" Quigley improves to 9-0, (8 KO's) while King falls to 7-19-2, (3 KO's).  (Guigley photos are credited to Wallace Barron)

The co-feature on the card was Crofton, MD heavyweight Luther "Lights Out" Smith was in a scheduled four round contest with Schyuler Marshall of South Carolina at North Hall at Eastern Market in Washington, DC. Smith made his pro debut on March 28 in Springfield, VA and scored a first-round knockout over Jonathan Williams. This bout against Marshall wasn't any different. Smith used only 39 seconds to get this contest stopped in the first by knockout.

Luther Smith is now 2-0. (2 KO's) while Marshall falls to 1-6-1, (1 KO).

The hand speed of Glenarden, MD lightweight Drayvontay Speed-Rawls proved to be too much for Brian Raglin of Indianapolis, IN. Rawls sent Raglin to the canvas two times. After the first knockdown Raglin was able to continue, but it was the speed that generated power that caused Raglin to go down the second time. Raglin made it to his feet, but was in no condition to finish the fight. The bout was stopped at 2:18 of round one.

Drayvontay Speed-Rawls is now 3-0, (1 KO) while Brian Raglin is still looking for his first win.

Here is how Gary "Digital" Williams of Boxing Along The Beltway saw the earlier portion of the card:

In the only bout on the card to go the distance, Edgar "The Tiger" Torres of Springfield, VA won a four-round unanimous decision over veteran Andre Baker of Lumberton, NC.  Torres dropped Baker with right hands to the head and body in the second round and went on to win relatively easily.  Torres won by scores of 40-35 (twice) and 40-36 to raise his record to 6-0-1, three KO's while Baker falls to 10-43-2, two KO's.

Heavyweight Stan Williamson of Columbia, MD opened the card with a third-round stoppage of debuting Marquis Benson of Indianapolis, IN.  The 6'7" Williamson towered over his opponent and, once he found the range, was able to land destructive combinations to wear Benson down, finally getting the stoppage at 30 seconds of the third.  Williamson is now 4-0, four KO's.

Two boxers who are signees of GH3 Promotions of New Jersey put on very impressive performances on this card.  Lavarn "Baby Bowe" Harvell of Atlantic City, NJ stopped Quincey "Pretty Boy Vegas" Miner of Kansas City, MO at 2:35 of the first round.  Harvell battered Miner throughout the round, eventually dropping him with a solid right hand.  Miner could not beat referee Mark D'Atillo's count and the bout was stopped.

Harvell, who now trains in Virginia, raised his record to 15-1, eight KO's.  Miner is now 3-10.

The newest GH3 signee (joining, among others, Beltway Boxers Antoine Douglas, Jerry Odom and Jerrell Harris), O'Shaquie "Ice Water" Foster of Houston, TX, put on a dazzling display of speed and power en route to stopping Frank Jordan of Elizabeth, NJ at 1:26 of the first round.

Foster, a former amateur standout, used tremendous hand speed to set up a nice left hand to the body-right hand to the head combination to drop Jordan early in the first.  Moments later, Foster landed another blistering right hand to put Jordan back down on the canvas for the count.   Foster remains undefeated at 7-0, four KO's while Jordan is 0-5.

In an exhibition bout, the returning Orazio "Razor" Robinson of Manassas, VA stopped Theophulis Newkirk of Wilson, NC in the first round.  This was the first time Robinson had fought in front of a live crowd in over nine years.
