Two 10-round WBC Fecarbox (Central American Federation) title bouts are the main events on the Saturday, May 11 Jeter Promotions card at Club One Fitness in Millersville, MD.
One title bout will include the promoter himself – Stevensville, MD middleweight Tony “Mo Better” Jeter – who will defend his WBC Fecarbox Middleweight title against Victor Hugo “Magnifico” Correa of Mexico City, Mexico. Jeter (15-3-1, 10 KO’s) is coming off a very successful 2012 in which he was undefeated in three bouts, captured the WBC Fecarbox title with a fifth-round TKO over Tyrel Brown in September and won an all-Beltway showdown via 10-round split decision against fellow local fan favorite Jimmy Lange in October. The success earned Jeter the Beltway Boxer of the Year for 2012.
Jeter is now ranked 15th in the world by the WBC and is now hoping to use this bout as a spring board to even bigger and better things.
“I’m really ready for this one,” Jeter said. “I’m hoping to get a top five ranking after this bout.”
Correa (15-5, 10 KO’s) is a big puncher who has won five of his last six bouts, all by knockout. This will be Correa’s first trip to the East Coast of the United States, having fought in California and Nevada.
The other main event is for the vacant WBC Fecarbox Super Middleweight title. Landover, MD’s Phil Jackson Benson takes on Maxell “The General” Taylor of Baltimore, MD. Benson, a native of Brooklyn, NY (11-1, 10 KO’s), has won eight straight bouts since suffering his only loss in June of 2009. Seven of those wins have come by knockout.
Taylor (18-4-1, eight KO’s) is coming off a six-round unanimous decision over Nathan Bedwell on December 1 in Winchester, VA. Taylor will be trying to continue a family hot streak. Taylor is the older brother of rising junior welterweight contender Emmanuel “Tranzforma” Taylor who has won two nationally televised bouts and has risen into the top 10 in the IBF.
The card also features the return of Laurel, MD heavyweight “The Big Ticket” Dwayne McRae (10-3, six KO’s) against Norfolk, VA’s Dennis Benson (1-6) in a six-round contest. McRae has not fought since losing by first-round TKO to David Saulsberry in Wilson, NC in September 2011.
Also, undefeated Ferndale, MD cruiserweight “Slick” Nick Kisner (11-0-1, five KO’s) battles Willie “Blackout” Chisolm of St. Petersburg, FL (7-14, four KO’s) in a four-round contest. Kisner is coming off a six-round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Jermaine Walker on December 8 in Williamson, WVA. Chisolm broke a 12-bout losing streak with a four-round knockout victory over Armando Arcona on March 30 in Tampa, FL. There are also amateur bouts slated for the card.
