In front of a packed house at Martin’s Valley Mansion in Cockeysville, MD that included current and former members of the Baltimore Ravens as well as former Baltimore Orioles, two Maryland veterans battled in one of the better bouts this year in the Beltway region.

“The Berlin Bomber” Joshua Snyder of Berlin, MD won a tough eight-round split decision over Baltimore’s Maxell “The General” Taylor. Great close fight, both in the ring and on the scorecards. The bout was fought mostly phone-booth style until Snyder was able to put Taylor on his bicycle in the seventh round. Judges Don Risher and Dave Greer saw the bout 77-75 for Snyder while Gary Camponeschi gave Taylor the nod, 77-75. (more…)
