Boxing Again In Toledo! » April 15, 2021


From Bob Ryder

Boxing returns to Toledo after a long pandemic-enforced shutdown on Saturday, April 17, when promoter Vick Green (Pulse Boxing) presented a six-fight card at the Skyway Rec Center in suburban Oregon, Ohio submits. The main event in six rounds will show Toledo’s middleweight Antwan Jones (6-0, 2 KOs) against Dylan Carson (1-2-1, 1 KO). Undefeated super middleweights Caleb Hernandez (4-0, 4 KOs) and Michael Rycraft (4-0-1, 3 KOs) battle it out to see whose O will go in a six-round supportive competition.

The remaining four fights, all scheduled for four rounds, feature the long-awaited pro debut of Toledo’s own Wayne Lawrence Jr. At the age of 9, Lawrence was an internet sensation showing off his quick fire combinations and footwork. Now, ten years later, he is playing for the first time against Waldo Zamudio (0: 1) in the lightweight.

The card is rounded off by the heavyweights James Evans (1: 0, 1 KO) against Jayden Taulker (pro debut), Wilver Hernandez (1: 0, 1 KO) against the bantamweight and his pro debut Kenneth Jamerson and Elias Moreno ( 3) -3, 2 KOs) against Maurice Anthony (2-1, 2 KOs) in the junior welterweight division.

Social distancing requirements dictate that a limited number of tickets are sold and can be purchased by calling 419-318-2158. The organizer is also working on providing a live stream on Facebook. Please visit Pulse Boxing’s Facebook page for information and updates.

The doors open on Saturday at 7 p.m. The first fight is scheduled for 8 p.m.
