Nelson to Fight Vashon for WIBA title
January 23, 2012

     
   
   
   
   

(JAN 23)  A pair of popular Northern Virginia boxers, middleweight Tori Nelson of Ashburn, and and junior welterweight Todd Wilson, of Fairfax,  will put their undefeated records on the line as opponents have been announced for their bouts on the Jimmy Lange Boxing card set for Saturday, February 11, 2012 at the Patriot Center.

Nelson (5-0-1), a single mom with three jobs (school bus driver and cafeteria worker at Loudoun County’s Broad Run High School and IHOP waitress) outside of the ring, will challenge Vashon Living (5-2, 1 KO) of Houston, Texas for the vacant Women’s International Boxing Association (WIBA) middleweight championship in a 10-round contest. This past summer in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, Nelson won the World Boxing Council’s (WBC) middleweight championship belt by upsetting Lorissa Rivas. She beat Michelle Garland in an action-packed contest in her Patriot Center debut last September.

Living is battle-tested in championship fights having lost a 10-round decision to Christiana Hammer for the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and World Boxing Federation (WBF) middleweight titles in October 2011. An experienced amateur competitor, she had won five in a row prior to the world title fight.

Wilson (11-0, 3 KOs), a former collegiate boxing champion and all-American at Virginia Military Institute, will face Fernando “El Latigo” Basora (8-7-1, 6 KOs) of the Bronx, N.Y. in a six-rounder. The Fairfax fighter outworked former world champion Eric “Mighty Mouse” Aiken en route to earning his 11th victory and biggest test to date last September at the Patriot Center. Since emerging on the Beltway boxing scene, the business development specialist at Booz Allen Hamilton has continued to draw supporters while gaining ring experience.

Nicknamed ‘the whip’, the Puerto Rican-born Basora gave Ryan Belasco all he could handle in a loss this past August in Dover, Del. Only three of his 16 fights have gone the distance, so fans should expect a high-energy, fast-paced affair when he visits Wilson’s home turf in February.

World Boxing Union (WBU) champion Jimmy Lange will defend his junior middleweight title against an opponent to be determined in the Main Event. Officials plan to announce the card’s third world title bout later this week. The Zain “Tiger” Shah vs. Tony “Mo Better” Jeter bout previously announced has fallen out.

Doors will open at 6:00 pm, with the first fight scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm. All bouts are subject to change.

Tickets, priced at $35, $50, $75, $125, $200, $300 and $500 (plus applicable service charges), will be available for purchase through all Ticketmaster outlets including the Patriot Center box office, online at ticketmaster.com and via Phonecharge at 703-573-SEAT, 202-397-SEAT and 410-547-SEAT. Accessible seating is available for patrons with disabilities by calling 703-993-3035.
