Joey “Bazooka Joe” Veazey Scheduled To Make Professional Debut!

Baltimore, MD Middleweight Joey “Bazooka Joe” Veazey will make his highly anticipated pro debut Saturday, October 22 when he faces Roanoke, VA’s Alberto Delgado at Body Renew Fitness in Winchester, VA.

Fighting out of the Baltimore Boxing Club, Veazey was a top performer in the amateurs, winning many tournaments and earning an international ranking during his impressive 100 fight career. He graduated from Northeast High School as an honor student in May and will be pursuing a mathematical engineering or computer science degree. The popular 18-year-old was a big crowd draw in and around the Baltimore area during his amateur career.

Veazey said of turning pro, “It’s a dream come true I’ve been looking forward this since my first amateur fight. I’m excited to go out there and follow my dream. The amateurs were fun but my dream has always been to go pro and to win world titles. I want to become a household name one day so now is the time to get on track.”

Jake Smith, Veazey’s manager and a longtime staple in the DC, Maryland, Virginia boxing scene, is extremely excited for his pro debut and sees a bright future.

“Joey’s a very poised and mature fighter far beyond his years. He’s a well-balanced person in and out of the ring who has everything in place to do well at the professional level. Those who have supported him since he was a young teenager know what he’s capable of doing and the fans seeing him for the first time on the 22nd are in for a great show.”

PAFT had the opportunity to do a video interview with Swift Jarrett Hurd in 2013. During that time Jarrett was 4-0 and getting ready for his fifth fight.

Some might ask why am I posting this article about Jarrett Hurd. My answer to you is, he is a example of one blue print a up and coming fighter can use to work their way up in the sport of boxing.

Taking the right fights to give yourself an opportunity to move forward. Even if you are on the B side take advantage of it. The risk is worth the reward!

On November 14, 2015 Jarrett stole the spotlight from a up and coming fighter named Frank Galarza with a impressive TKO win. That win gave him another opportunity to fight another up and coming opponent named Oscar Molina on June 25, 2016. Hurd also defeated Molina by TKO. He currently is still currently undefeated with a record of (18-0, 12 KO's) and is getting ready for his next live televised bout on Nov.12th on the SpikeTV network.

The Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia areas have many other fighters that are moving the right way but are not getting the opportunities to advance and fight against opponents that will let them be known like they deserve.
