The event will feature six professional bouts, a live performance by the music group Atmosphere, and a live movie shoot for BK THRIVING ARTISTS, a local movie production company.
Keystone Boxing is coming off a very successful card that hosted over 5,000 spectators at The Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA this past September and is looking forward to bringing another entertaining fight card to Maryland for this event. Promoter Gene Molovinsky, founder of Keystone Boxing, began Keystone Boxing seven years ago in hopes of "promoting professional boxers in the D.C. metropolitan area and revitalizing local interest in the sport" and has promoted over twenty major professional fight cards in the region.
This impressive lineup features two 8 round bouts as a dual headliner with Lamont Pearson, Prince George's County, MD (22-3-1, 12KOs) vs. Pascali Adorno, Puerto Rico (9-3-2, 4 KOs) and Henry Buchanan, Washington DC (11-0, 11KOs) vs. Dhafir Smith, Philadelphia, PA (13-12-2, 3KOs). Prior to the headliners there will be two six round bouts showcasing locals Miller and Holly with Purcell Miller (22-3, 17KOs) vs. TBA and Reggie Holly (5-0, 5KOs) vs. Sheldon Rudolph (3-3, 2KOs) and the night will begin with youthful four rounders matching Taurus Corbbrey (0-2) vs. Ben Lock (0-1) and Nick Caroleo (1-0) vs. Albert Bankivicious (0-2).
BK THRIVING ARTISTS will be shooting a scene for their upcoming feature film, "Temporary Dreams," that is a drama that focuses on a notorious DC drug kingpin, Raymond Edwards, who was a huge boxing fan.
