Rising StarsAthletics inks Nwodo

By Rick Scharmberg

Jim Bores, of Rising Stars Athletics informed that his company has signed former USBA cruiserweight champion Emmanuel Nwodo (23-5, 19 KOs) to a promotional contract. Nwodo, of Baltimore, MD via Enugu, Nigeria won the vacant USBA crown with a third round TKO over Chris Thomas on July 1, 2006, but lost it to Darnell “Ding-a-Ling-Man” Wilson by highlight-reel knockout in his very next bout. “He is thirty-six years old, and we realize time is not on our side,” stated Bores. “But Emmanuel is rejuvenated. He is ready, willing, and able to fight anyone worldwide. We hope to get him a shot at a regional belt this summer against someone in the top-15.”
