Virginia and Maryland area boxing fans will have a chance to see live boxing on Saturday June 4, 2016. The card, deemed the “Bulldog Brawl,” is being presented by Jeter Promotions and features many up and coming D/M/V area boxers. The venue is the ABC Sports Complex, located at 6728 Commercial Drive Springfield, Virginia 22151. Tickets are $50 for general admission and $75 for V.I.P. access, featuring closer seating. Doors open at 6:30PM and the first bell rings around 8:00PM, food and drinks will be for sale at the venue.
Headlining the card is undefeated Maryland junior middleweight Jerome Quigley Jr. Quigley brings an impressive record of 14 fights (14-0 13KO), albeit against underwhelming opposition. He got a late start in the professional boxing ranks, turning pro at the age of 29. By staying busy and gradually increasing the caliber of his opposition (and obviously winning), he will be able to make up for lost time and rise through the ranks.
The co-feature fighter of the night will be 26 year old York, Pennsylvania native Steve Weimer (10-0 2KO). Weimer recently returned from a 3-year hiatus, scoring a decision victory over an outclassed Joseph Figueroa. “I wanted to make sure I set a future up for myself, so boxing had to take a back seat while I finished college,” Weimer said regarding his temporary leave, “but now I’ve graduated, and I’m able to commit myself to the sport.” Weimer recently signed with Tony Jeter (owner of Jeter Promotions, and a veteran boxer himself) under his Jeter Management banner.
Also featured on the card is undefeated Adam Lopez. The 25 year old Lopez (15-0 7KO) is currently ranked 7th in the United States at the super bantamweight class, and pending a win, will be defending his WBA Fedelatin Title in July. Lopez is a promising fighter from San Antonio, Texas with notable wins over three previously undefeated fighters.
All said, the card looks to be an entertaining one, featuring at least nine bouts, and almost guaranteeing a few knockouts along the way. If you are a casual fan looking for an action packed evening of live entertainment, look no further. For the more dedicated boxing fans, you may be able to catch a glimpse of future high caliber fighters in their early stages. Are you planning on making it to the card?
