UPCOMING 5/11/2013: Jeter vs Correa

Tony “Mo Better” Jeter looks to continue his rise through the WBC ranks when defends his FECARBOX Title against the tough and gritty Victor Hugo “Magnifico” Correa Saturday in a 10-round main bout during an exciting night of boxing presented by Jeter Promotions at Club One Fitness in Millersville.

Jeter, who is rising in the middleweight ranks, stopped a much bigger opponent in Tyrel Brown thanks to a TKO in the fifth round of their scheduled 8-round bout September 2012.

Just 5 weeks later he stopped Jimmy Lange, who was billed as a perennial contender to fight Austin Trout last fall. Jeter’s performance got everyone’s attention as he was able to easily break down Lange over 10 rounds to notch an impressive split decision and build upon his name.

“I was trying so hard to brand myself and my name and I took the fight and fought hard and got the win,” said Jeter after his upset over Lange.

The hard-nosed Jeter is currently ranked 15th place by the WBC and enters this contest with an impressive 15-3-1 mark and was honored by being named the 2012 Boxing Along the Beltway Fighter of the Year, a title he wants to build upon.

“I am ready to go, this is my year.”

Correa (14-5) will be looking to sport the upset win in a hostile environment that will surely be rooting for Jeter.

“I do not know much about him (Correa), but I heard he is going to be in good shape and he likes to come forward,” added Jeter. “I am doing everything I need to do to get into the Top 10, I am going to see what he looks like, pick my shots and work my way in and see what I can do. I will be on my game and I am prepared to fight all 10 rounds.”

The co-main event should be action packed when Brooklyn knockout artist Phillip “Jackson” Benson tangles against Baltimore’s Maxell “The General” Taylor in a 10-round bout that will decide the vacant WBC FECARBOX Super Middleweight Championship.

Taylor (18-4-1) is coming off an emphatic unanimous decision win over Nathan Bedwell. Taylor uses his jab wisely and might use it Saturday to stay clear of Jackson-Benson’s power which has produced 10 knockouts over the course of his career.

A fan favorite in the Washington, D.C., metro area, Jackson-Benson (11-1) is also coming off an impressive victory, scoring a devastating first round TKO of John Terry on March 2nd.

The card will also mark the return of popular Washington, D.C., area heavyweight Dwayne “Big Ticket” McRae (10-3, 6KOs) who will be taking on Dennis Benson (2-5-1, 1KO) in a scheduled six-round bout.
 
Also slated to appear on the card are cruiserweight “Slick” Nick Kisner (11-0-1, 5 KO’s) taking on the very durable and exciting Willie “Blackout” Chisolm (7-14, 4 KO’s) in a four round contest.
