Baltimore, MD (June 10, 2014) – Undefeated multi-division world champion Tori “Sho Nuff” Nelson will defend her WIBA welterweight belt against longtime contender Nicole Woods Saturday, June 28 in the main event a Ponytail Promotions card at the Du Burns Arena.

$30 general admission, $50 floor seats, $75 VIP seats and $750 VIP tables of 10 are available by calling 410-499-5361 or going to Ponytailpromotions.com.

One of the top female boxers,  Nelson is 9-0-1 with one win by knockout. Hailing from Ashburn, VA, the popular Nelson’s fresh off a second round stoppage of ring legend Mia St. John in May. The 37-year-old captured titles at welterweight and middleweight, traveling to Trinidad and Tobago in 2011 to win the latter. A true world champion, Nelson twice battled to controversial draws against Teresa Perozzi in her native Bermuda.

An Atlanta, GA native, Woods has one of the most impressive resumes in the sport. Dubbed as “Notorious”, Woods shared the squared circle with a number of top fighters, often fighting on the road. She’s fought the likes of Cecelia Braekhus, Melissa Hernandez (twice), Erica Farais, Belinda Laracuente and Kimberly Connor amongst others. In 27 pro fights, she’s been stopped just once.

The Woods-Nelson bout is scheduled for 10 rounds.

In the co-featured bout of the evening, Baltimore’s Willie “For Real” Williams, 13-7-2 (4 KO’s), battles Norfolk, VA’s Frankie “Freight Train” Filippone, 15-4-1 (2 KO’s), in an eight round light heavyweight contest. Williams and Filippone, who is a police officer in Virginia, meet for the vacant USBU championship.

Rising welterweight star James “Keep’Em Sleepin” Stevenson looks to go 22-0 when he faces an opponent to be announced in an eight rounder. One of the many talented fighters in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, Stevenson’s inching closer to a major fight in the near future.

In separate undercard bouts, prospects Demond “Dbestatit” Nicholson, Jeremy Trussell, Tyriesha Douglas, Seth Billups, Glenn Dezurn, Alexandru Marin and Andrew Farmer along with surging lightweight Tyrell “Da Show Shocka” Samuel, Travis Reeves and Kevin Womack Jr. will face opponents to be named.

“June 28 is going to be one of the best local cards in recent memory,” said Ponytail Promotions CEO James Hogan. “We’ve got many of the top male and female fighters in the Baltimore, Maryland, DC area under one roof. From the Nelson-Woods bout to Stevenson, Williams-Fillippone and all of the upcoming prospects, ticketholders are guaranteed to get their money’s worth and then some!”

Doors for this excellent evening of boxing open at 6 pm with the first bout scheduled for 7. Popular radio station 92Q and DJ Squirrel Wyde will be on hand from 6-8 PM with prizes and special giveaways.”
