Headlining the card is Bowie State University graduate Greg “Sharp Shooter” Outlaw (6-0, 2 KOs) going up against Balimore’s own Mack Allison IV (8-1-1). This bout is near and dear to Outlaw’s heart. Not only is he returning to his Alma mater for the second time this year, but he has also dedicated this bout to Demiyah Alyssa Telemaque-Nelson who passed away a just weeks shy of her 6th birthday December 8, 2014, after battling with cancer.
In addition to Outlaw’s sentimental headlining bout, the card will feature a showcase of fighters from the region including the sons of Hasim Rahman, former Lineal, WBC, IBO, and IBF Heavyweight Champion. His eldest son, Hasim “Gold Blooded” Rahman Jr. (6-0, 4 KOs), is on track to follow in his footsteps. As a heavyweight contender, Rahman Jr. made his professional debut in April of 2017. Rahman Jr. will be taking on opponent Kenderick Houston (1-3-1). Sharif “C3” Rahman (3-0, 2 KOs), Rahman’s younger son, will be returning to the ring after a win by unanimous decision in June of this year.
Hailing from Laurel, Maryland, Demond Nicholson (19-3-1, 18 KOs) is also on the card. Nicholson won the World Boxing Council United States (USNBC) Super Middleweight Title against Isaac Rodrigues this past August.
Undefeated Super Lightweight Mykol “The Professor” Fox (18-0, 4 KOs) will step into the ring after his unanimous decision win against DeMarcus Corley in August of this year. Fox is the younger brother of Alantez “ASyAza” Fox.
