Jeter-Correa Fecarbox title bout scrapped in Millersville; rest of card intact

Photos: Juan Marshall has learned that the WBC Fecarbox Middleweight title bout between champion Tony Jeter and Victor Hugo Correa slated for Saturday, May 11 at Club One Fitness in Millersville, MD has been called off. However, the rest of the Jeter Promotions card — including another WBC Fecarbox title bout — will still take place. Jeter Promotions learned late Thursday that something was wrong when Correa didn’t arrive to be picked up at a local airport. Subsequently, Correa sent an email saying he was not coming from Mexico City due to an illness. This was after all the necessary documentation — including medical forms — had already been received. After some last-minute tries to find a replacement, the bout had to be called off.

Where some promoters may have cancelled the card outright, Jeter Promotions told Fightnews that it would not be right to the other boxers on the card to cancel, so the card will go on as scheduled with the bout between Phil Jackson Benson and Maxell Taylor for the vacant WBC Fecarbox Super Middleweight title as the new main event.

Here is the scale watch:

Phil Jackson Benson 165 vs. Maxell Taylor 167
(WBC Fecarbox Supervisor Bismarck Morales holds the title belt)
Dwayne McRae 231.5 vs. Dennis Benson 252
Nick Kisner 217.5 vs. Willie Chisolm 218.5
