We have more information about the Jake The Snake Promotions card on Friday, April 12 at the Wicomico Civic Center in Salisbury, MD.
The main event still includes undefeated Salisbury cruiserweight Alex Guerrero (8-0-1, five KO’s) who will face Terrence “T-Rex” Smith of Oklahoma City, OK (8-14-2, five KO’s) in an eight-round contest. Guerrero has a three-bout knockout streak including his last outing — a fifth-round TKO over veteran Harvey Jolly on September 15 in Duluth, GA. Guerrero is the older brother of middleweight Fernando Guerrero and this will make April a big month for the family. Fernando Guerrero will challenge Peter Quillin for the WBO Middleweight championship on April 27 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Smith. meanwhile, is coming off a third-round stoppage loss to Philip Jackson Benson on December 8 in Washington, DC.
The co-feature matches Norfolk, VA super middleweight Frankie “The Freight Train” Filippone against Marcus Clay of Baton Rouge, LA in a six-round contest. Filippone (13-2-1, two KO’s) has won four in a row including a 10-round unanimous decision over Kevin Engel for the interim NABA light heavyweight title on February 8 in Wilmington, DE. Clay (2-4) lost a four-round majority decision to Todd Manuel on February 16 in Opelousas, LA.
Undefeated Upper Marlboro, MD heavyweight Duane Mobley will battle Baltimore veteran Lonnie Kornegay in a four-round contest. Mobley, the 2012 Beltway Boxing Rookie of the Year at the age of 38 years old (7-0, four KO’s) won his last bout by disqualification over DeAndre McCole on December 1 in Norfolk, VA. Kornegay (1-8) will be trying to break a four-bout losing streak.
The card will mark the debut of former Penn State University boxer, AJ “We Are” Williams, now fighting out of Baltimore. Williams, a 6’4″ middleweight, was the captain of the Penn State boxing team and won a bronze medal at the 2010 National Collegiate Boxing Association Tournament. Williams will take on DC’s Issa Coulibaly (0-4) in a four-round contest. Two more bouts are slated for the card.
