Philly's Thyler Williams was scheduled to headline the Jeter
Promotions show at the 2300 Arena on Saturday, December 3rd.
However, when his opponent, Maurice Anthony, tested positive for
Covid at the weigh-in the day before, the Michigan fighter was out.
Instead, Williams clashed with Rock Ministries Gym-mate Johnny
Rivera in an exhibition and Jeter's Mansaborie Conde was elevated to
CONDE WINS IN ONE
Conde, a Laurel, MD southpaw, took on Davon Hall of Wilmington, but
the middleweight bout didn't last long. Conde scored a first round
TKO after just 1:41 had elapsed. Referee Shawn Clark stopped the
bout. Conde improved to 4-0, 3 KOs, while Hall remained winless,
HUTCHERSON DECISIONS KENNEDY
In a junior lightweight fight, Jaqeem Hutcherson, Forestville, MD,
defeated DeShawn Kennedy, Holland, MI, by four-round majority
decision. Judge Marc Werlinsky called the bout even, 38-38, but was
overruled by Tony Lundy and Ron McNair who saw the fight 39-37 for
Hutcherson, now 4-1. Kennedy remained winless, 0-6.
DUNTON EL JR. TOPS ARANA
Baltimore's Antonio Dunton El Jr. stayed unbeaten with a four-round
decision over New Yorker Ronny Arana. Dunton dropped Arana in the
final round and took all three official scorecards (Lundy, McNair &
Werlinsky) 40-35. Dunton raised his record to 2-0-1. Arana remained
JONES KAYOS ZIMMERMAN
Baltimore junior welterweight Ahmad Muhammad Jones made a successful
pro debut with a first round knockout of Joshua Zimmerman, also of
Baltimore. The bout lasted 1:09. The referee was Eric Dali. Jones
left 1-0, 1 KO, while Zimmerman remained winless, 0-7.
Clearly the key phrase for the
four professional B-Side opponents on this night was "winless".
Although matching an opponent for a debuting fighter (Ahmad Muhammad
Jones) is understandable, the fact that none of the other foes had
ever managed a previous win, is a disgrace - and likely not a
coincidence. To be fair, Williams' would-be opponent, Anthony Jones,
was 3-3. However, there was no question how these bouts would turn
out. The rest of the show was slate of amateur bouts. Amateur
fighters are always fun to watch, and usually bring in a good crowd
- something necessary when the professional side of the event is so
