Jaidon Codrington back in action

By Jose E. Santiago

On Sunday August 18th, Route 30 Promotions will present Sunday Night Fights. Featured in the main event is former ESPN2’s The Contender star, now Atlanta police officer Jaidon “The Don” Codrington (20-3, 16 KOs) as he’s slated to take on journeyman Deleon Tinsley (9-10-1, 5 KOs). Codrington is looking to resurrect his career and hasn’t seen action since a first round KO at the hands of Russian Rakhim Chakhkiev in April of ’12.

Also featured on the card is promising middleweight Quatavious Cash (6-0, 4 KOs) as he’s set to take on Miami native Angel Martinez (3-4-3). Last month, as reported on Fightnews, Cash was shot in the leg at a pickup basketball game in Atlanta and ran himself to a local hospital. The wound has healed and Cash is ready to continue moving up the ranks in the middleweight division.

The fights will be held at The Mansion night club in Atlanta GA. For more information and tickets visit
