Tori Nelson to defend WIBA Title against Maria Lindberg
May 1, 2012
     
   
   
   
   

(MAY 1)  In a battle of world champions, undefeated Tori “Sho Nuff” Nelson (6-0-1) of Ashburn, VA will defend her Women’s International Boxing Association (WIBA) Middleweight Title against Maria Lindberg (6-1-2) of Malmo, Sweden as the 10-round Co-Main Event on the Jimmy Lange Boxing card set for Saturday, June 23 at the Patriot Center. Presented by Valcourt Building Services, the card will also feature undefeated Fairfax, VA junior welterweight Todd “White Lightning” Wilson (13-0, 4 KOs) going for his 14th straight victory with an eight-round contest against Winston Mathis (7-5-1, 2 KOs) of Atlanta, GA.

Nelson captured the WIBA Championship with an impressive win over Vashon Living last February in Fairfax. Her biggest win to date came on July 29, 2011 in Trinidad and Tobago with a victory over Lorissa Rivas for the World Boxing Council (WBC) Middleweight Belt. A single mother of two teenagers who juggles jobs as a bus driver and cafeteria worker at Loudoun County’s Broad Run High School and waitressing at IHOP, Nelson has made a strong connection with her fans, both inside and outside of the ring.

Lindberg, the WIBA’s Light Middleweight Champion, defeated Diana Kiss in a non-title fight in her last bout held February 11, 2012 in Hamburg, Germany. Prior to that she lost a decision to Christina Hammer for the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and World Boxing Federation Middleweight Championships on May 27, 2011.

Wilson, a former collegiate boxing champion and Virginia Military Institute graduate, has fought six times in front of hometown fans at the Patriot Center with victories against former world champion Eric “Mighty Mouse” Aiken and tough veteran Dean “Pitt Bull” White. Wilson defeated Eric Burke by fourth-round TKO in his most recent fight held February 25, 2012 in Charlotte, NC. Mathis is looking to bounce back after dropping his last fight to undefeated Chris Algieri on March 31, 2012 in Huntington, NY.

Fan favorite Jimmy Lange (38-4-2) of Great Falls, VA is headlining his 15th show at the Fairfax venue, and will face Tony “Mo Better” Jeter (13-3-1, 9 KOs) of Stevensville, MD in a 10-round bout. Officials also announced that popular LA Boxing instructor Lawrence Jones (4-6-2, 1 KO) of Reston, VA and Gundrick King (16-8, 11 KOs) of Tuscaloosa, AL will fight in a six-round junior middleweight contest. Jones served as a last-minute replacement in his last fight, a loss to Harry Joe Yorgey at the Patriot Center three months ago. King last fought on March 17, 2012, losing to Charlie Ota. In a four-round heavyweight showdown, unbeaten Duane Mobley (2-0, 1 KO) of Upper Marlboro, MD will be matched against Michael DeSantos, an LA Boxing trainer from Ashburn, VA who is making his professional debut. Mobley scored a first-round knockdown over Francois Russell last month in Indiana and won his first fight last February at the Patriot Center.

Doors will open at 6:00 pm, with the first fight scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm. All bouts are subject to change. Jackie “First Lady of Boxing” Kallen is the promoter with matchmaking handled by JD Brown.

Tickets, priced at $35, $50, $75, $125, $200, $300 and $500 (plus applicable service charges), can be purchased through all Ticketmaster outlets including the Patriot Center box office, online at ticketmaster.com/ and via Phonecharge at 1-800-745-3000.
