Dusty Harrison – Marqus Jackson on August 25th
The Saturday, August 25 Keystone Boxing card at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC is coming together with a lot of young talent on the card.
Undefeated DC welterweight Dusty Harrison headlines the show in a six-round contest against Marqus “Goose” Jackson of Atlanta, GA. Harrison (7-0, four KO’s) is coming off a first-round TKO of Reggie Nash on the last Keystone Boxing card on July 14 at the Convention Center. Jackson (2-5, 1 NC, two KO’s) is winless in his last five bouts and has not fought since February 2011.
In a four-round junior middleweight encounter, Harold “Sweet Lee” Parker of DC will battle Richie “The Rock” Andrews of Stuarts Draft, VA. Parker (2-0, two KO’s) is coming off a second-round TKO over Antonio Sadler on the July 14 Keystone card. Andrews (3-2-3, one KO) has lost back-to-back four-round majority decisions in his last two outings.
This card will mark a special day for the Parker family because Harold Parker’s younger brother, Joshua “Marvelous Mo” Parker, will make his pro debut in a four-round lightweight contest against Jason Meeks (0-1).
Also on the card, Charlotte Hall, MD middleweight Josh Rupard (2-0, two KO’s) will take on the aforementioned Antonio Sadler of Columbia, SC (1-1-1). Rupard’s knockout wins have both come in the first round.
In a four-round super featherweight rematch, District Heights, MD super featherweight Renaldo “Misunderstood” Gaines battles David Warren Huffman of Milwaukee, WI. Gaines (2-0) made his pro debut against Huffman (0-7) on March 10 at the Convention Center, winning a four-round unanimous decision.
Suffolk, VA middleweight Farrad “The Rose” Price returns to action when he faces DC’s Issa Coulibaly in a four-round battle. Price (1-0) has not fought since making his pro debut in May of 2011, defeating Damont Giddins by four-round unanimous decision in Millersville, MD. Coulibaly (0-1) lost his pro debut by fourth-round TKO to Lee Snow on June 16 in Baltimore, MD.
DC light heavyweight Greg Newby, who was slated to make his pro debut on the August 4 card in DC, has been added to this card and will face the equally debuting Gavin Hume.
The co-feature on the card will match Brooklyn, NY light heavyweight Phil Benson (7-1, six KO’s) against Anthony Pietrantonio of Youngstown, OH (7-9, six KO’s) in a six-round contest. Benson scored a fourth-round TKO over Mark Anderson on April 28 in Wilson, NC while Pietrantonio has lost his last two by knockout.
