Third World Title Fight Added to Feb 11 Jimmy Lange Boxing Card; Stewart vs. Watts for WBU 147-lb Championship in Co-Main Event
Fairfax, Va. (December 15, 2011) – Jimmy Lange Boxing officials today announced a third world title fight on the February 11, 2012 card at the Patriot Center, a showdown between ring veterans Michael “No Joke” Stewart and Joe Wyatt. The ten-round co-main event will be for the vacant World Boxing Union (WBU) welterweight championship.
Fighting out of New Castle, Del., Stewart (47-6-3, 24 KOs) is a former no. 1 ranked light welterweight contender who beat Charles Tschorniawsky to capture the United States Boxing Association’s (USBA) 140-lb. title. He successfully defended his USBA crown against Ivan Robinson and Terron Millett. The 15-year veteran has fought former world champions Ricky Hatton (for the WBU light welterweight title) and D.C.’s Sharmba Mitchell during his career. He competed in the second season of The Contender, losing to eventual winner Grady Brewer in the quarterfinals. Last September in his Patriot Center debut, Stewart easily dispatched Jimmy LeBlanc, knocking him down in each of the first two rounds and scoring a TKO at 1:47 of the second round.
Wyatt (23-2, 15 KOs) showed little signs of ring rust after a four-year layoff in his spirited slugfest against Jimmy Lange at the Patriot Center on November 6, 2010. The Newark, NJ-based fighter went toe-to-toe with Lange for 10 rounds before losing by knockout in the waning seconds of the fight, considered one of the most exciting and dramatic bouts ever at the Fairfax venue. The former top 20 world contender lost to undefeated Reda Zam Zam for the World Boxing Association’s (WBA) Inter-Continental light middleweight title prior to his return bout. Wyatt went 25 bouts without a loss, dating back to the start of his pro career in 2000. Within that time, he defeated George Klinesmith to capture the World Boxing Organization’s (WBO) North American Boxing Organization’s (NABO) welterweight crown.
WBU junior middleweight champion Jimmy Lange will defend his title (opponent to be determined) in the Main Event, while Tori “Sho Nuff” Nelson will face Vashon “Lady V” Living for the vacant Women’s International Boxing Association (WIBA) middleweight championship belt. Also on the card is Todd “White Lightning” Wilson taking on Fernando “El Latigo” Basora.
Doors will open at 6:00 pm, with the first fight scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm. All bouts are subject to change.
