Championship Boxing Comes To Durham

Posted by Oscar Francis on

Raging Babe and Hall of Fame Matchmaker Russell Peltz have assembled what could be the best professional boxing card North Carolina has seen this year. The event, October 19th at Durham Armory, features a Durham vs. Charlotte matchup for the North Carolina Lightweight Championship. Marko “Bull City Bully” Bailey (5-0, 3KO) and Stevie “The Answer” Massey (4-1, 4KO) are on a collision course – it is rare in boxing to see two local prospects with everything to lose lay it on the line this early in their careers, and this matchup is sure to have fans on their feet and a belt on one of these two warriors’ waists.

In the co-feature, Joseph Jackson (8-0, 6KO) and Monreco Goldston (5-0-1, 3KO) put their undefeated records on the line in an explosive six round matchup. Also on the card, local Mexican favorite Carlos Olmeda faces New York’s Vinnie Denierio, and Donnie Marshall steps up versus experienced veteran Marcos Primera. Other local talent on the card includes Nate Williams and Blake Mansfield in separate bouts.
