Two Beltway Boxers on Wilder vs. Ortiz card March 3rd.
Article by Gary "Digital" Williams
Two Beltway Boxers have been added to the undercard of the DiBella Entertainment/TGB Promotions card on Saturday, March 3rd at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
Capitol Heights, MD super lightweight Antuanne Russell will make his first appearance of 2018 in a six-round bout against an opponent to be determined. Russell, the 2017 Beltway Boxing Co-Rookie Of The Year, scored three first-round knockouts last year including a bout that was slated for six rounds.
Also on the card will be Washington, DC welterweight Shynggyskhan Tazhibay who will move up to the six-round plateau for the first time. The native of Kazakhstan (5-0, two KO's) last fought on August 12th and won a four-round unanimous decision over Robert Hill at the Howard Theatre in DC.
The headline bouts on the card will be televised by Showtime. Deontay Wilder defends the WBC Heavyweight championship in the main event. Jermall Charlo battles Hugo Centeno, Jr. for the interim WBC Middleweight title and Andre Dirrell defends the interim IBF Super Middleweight championship in a rematch against Jose Uzcategui. The two met on May 20th at the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, MD where Uzcategui was disqualified for hitting Dirrell after the bell in the eighth round. After the bout was over, Uzcategui was punched by one of Dirrell's handlers, Leon Lawson. Lawson was suspended indefinitely by the state of Maryland.

Lineal and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) and WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO Middleweight World Champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) will return to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for a highly anticipated rematch on Cinco de Mayo.
The first fight between the two world-class athletes sold out in only two weeks, and tickets will surely be in even higher demand as both fighters have promised they will not leave the rematch in the judges' hands. Canelo vs. GGG 2 will take place Saturday, May 5 and will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at a special time of 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT.
"I am happy to return for the fourth time at T-Mobile Arena for this historic rematch against [Gennady] Golovkin," said Canelo. "I opened the doors of this place to the world of boxing, and it has become my favorite venue. This is where the fight started, and this is where I'll end it by doing what I and my fans most desire: knocking him out."
"It feels right that the rematch returns to the scene of the crime," said Golovkin. "This time there will be no drama with a decision. I won the first fight and left the ring as world champion wearing all the belts. And I am going to win the second fight. It is going to be a record fight and a golden night for me and boxing at T-Mobile Arena."
Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De La Hoya, said, "There is no better place to host the historic rematch between Canelo and Golovkin than T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Las Vegas on a fight weekend during Cinco de Mayo is electric, and I know fans will travel from around the world to be here to participate in the celebratory atmosphere. Historic boxing matches like Canelo vs. GGG 2 belong in a place like Las Vegas, which offers fans the full and rich experience they are looking for on a big fight weekend."
"The last time they met in the ring, the tie went to the runner -- Canelo Alvarez," said
Tom Loeffler, promoter of Golovkin. "I think there is only one place to settle this dispute between the two best middleweights. The most appropriate place for the rematch is back at T-Mobile Arena. The venue was a sensational host to Team Golovkin and the fans were terrific. We'll see if T-Mobile Arena remains Canelo's favorite venue after he becomes Gennady's twentieth and record-tying title defense."
Richard Sturm, President of Sports and Entertainment for MGM Resorts International, said, "T-Mobile Arena is the ideal venue to host a championship boxing event of this magnitude. We look forward to celebrating Cinco de Mayo weekend with sports fans in Las Vegas and worldwide for what should be one of boxing's premier rematches."
