The Keystone Boxing has done it again. The latest show was held at the famous Rosecorft Raceway in Fort Washington, Md. The sellout crowd of 914 was treated to a wonderful fight card, put on by match maker Brian Dillon, with the exciting Mike Reed as the main event. Reed scored a unanimous decision over previously undefeated Randy Fuentes. The crowd was boisterous and knowledgeable, as they rooted for the local fighters who all won their bouts. “Ross said that over 700 tickets had been sold around 7:30”, says Gene Molovinsky, the Promoter, speaking of his son Ross.
In the co-feature, Jarrett Hurd improved his record to 9-0 with a unanimous decision over Frank Gedeon, who entered the ring with no loses on his record. Other winners were Josh Elkins, winning his pro debut, Demond Nicholson, 3-0, Charlie Natal, 2-0, whose family drove in from Ohio to surprise him, Glenn Dezurn, Jr. and Hugh Hinds won his first fight as a pro. But it was Mike Reed, 6-0, who showed why he is one of the bright stars on the boxing horizon. “Mike showed poise and seemed to break his opponent down, says Gary Williams, a member of the DC Boxing Hall of Fame, In some ways, this opponent was tougher that Mike’s last opponent. This guy wasn’t going anywhere. “ Reed, 20, is taking his time as he builds up rounds and learns with every bout. Reed says, “I want to build up rounds. I want to learn from each fight and of course win as I learn.”
