Nordic Coliseum Women Boxing debuts on GFL.tv with “NCWB 1” from the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Gatineau, QC, Canada on August 15. Look for these women to throw down inside the squared circle as they go for broke in front of a worldwide audience.

In the main event, Kaliesha West fights Olivia Gerula. West is a former 3 time WBO Bantamweight and current IFBA Super Bantamweight World Champion. West has been fighting for over a decade and racked up tons of hard fought victories. West uses great footwork and head movement to get inside and score and get out of harm’s way. Gerula is a heavy handed fighter that can end a fight with a single punch. Gerula has an iron chin and loves to walk her opponent’s down inside the ring. Look for Gerula to try and cut off the ring and get West in a corner. This bout promises to be a shootout with the contrasting game plans going into it.

Brenda Gonzales takes on Lucia Osegueda. Gonzales is a rising star that is looking to make her mark against her toughest test to date. Gonzales is a punishing body puncher and has doubled over several of her past opponents. Osegueda is another boxer that uses the full array of punches and she can equally do damage with uppercuts, hooks and body shots. Expect fireworks from these two.

Sherine Thomas battles Vanessa Bradford. Thomas and Bradford are looking to rise up the ladder and for one of them, they will do just that. Both women come into the ring with their backs against the ropes and will be looking to not only win, but prove a point that they belong in future main events for NCWB. Both women will be head-hunting and trying to get KO of the night. Don’t blink.

“Everything is going well in training, I have no complaints”, said Dharry.

“I have seen him fight.  He moves some, he boxes some and he fights as well.  It is nothing that I haven’t seen before.  I have been boxing a long time and I will be ready for anything that he brings on August 1.”
Dharry has been one of the fastest rising boxers in the Bantamweight division as he has won 12 fights in a row.  The fact that he has the right team behind him is all the difference in the world.
“Early in my career I had no one behind me.  I took fights on short notice and was involved in fights that were bad decisions and because I took those fights on short notice, I did not have the proper preparation.”
Dharry has decided to take his career into his own hands and he formed his promotional company with the purpose of being able to enhance his own career and give other local fighters opportunities.
“I have to make my own opportunities and this is what I want to do.  This is something that I am starting and it also gives me something I can focus on after boxing.”
With a win, there have been some title opportunities presented to Dharry but he is not looking past Robertson.
“My focus is on August 1.  I know I have to win this and then I can focus on the bigger fights when the time comes.”
“This is for the fans.  I hope they come out and support.  They have not seen the best of me yet.  I am a better and smarter fighter with each fight and I know the fans will get their monies worth on August 1.”

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN) GFL PRESENTS “WITHERSPOON VS BEALE” BEGINNING JULY 28

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)

GFL PRESENTS “WITHERSPOON VS BEALE” BEGINNING JULY 28

July 25, 2014

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class boxing as Peltz Boxing presents another show stopper with Peltz Boxing: Witherspoon VS Beale featuring a full lineup of prize fighting emanating from West Deptford, New Jersey.

Heavyweight contender, Chazz ‘The Gentleman’ Witherspoon returns to the ring after a two-year absence when he takes on Tyabb Beale in an 8-round bout at the Riverwinds Community Center in West Deptford, New Jersey. The show is promoted by Witherspoon’s Silver Spoon Promotions. Beale of Newark, New Jersey has a record of 9-4-1 with three knockouts and is 7-1-1 over his last nine bouts. Beale has been a pro since 2007 and has victories over Nate James (6-1) and Aaron Kinch (4-0-1). He is coming off a 2nd round stoppage defeat to top undefeated prospect Charles Martin on March 1st.

“I take Tyyab Beale very serious as an opponent, and that is the same way I feel about all my opponents,” Said Witherspoon. “He’s a big strong guy that weighs about 245 pounds, and from what I’ve seen of him he has a particular skill set that he brings to the table. I know I am the most experienced person that he has faced thus far in the ring, and I will look to utilize that to my advantage.” “I believe it’s going to be an exciting action packed fight. I feel great after the long layoff, and even though I haven’t been fighting regularly, I’ve still been in the gym the whole time.”

Witherspoon (30-3, 22 KO’s) of nearby Paulsboro, New Jersey established himself as one of the top American Heavyweights as the St. Joseph’s University graduate won his first twenty-three bouts with wins over the likes of Michael Alexander (11-0), Talmadge Griffis (24-6-3), Jonathan Haggler (18-1) before suffering his 1st defeat to future two-time world title challenger Chris Arreola via controversial disqualification.

Witherspoon went on to win three win a row which was highlighted by an entertaining 8th round stoppage over Adam “The Swamp Donkey” Richards (21-1). That fight was voted Ring Magazine’s 2008 Heavyweight Fight of the Year. Witherspoon then dropped a fight to future two-time world title challenger Tony Thompson. Witherspoon went on to score 4-consecutive knockouts which included a devastating 3rd-round destruction over Tyson Cobb (14-2). Witherspoon is looking to get back into the win column and facilitate his championship run following his 3rd-round stoppage defeat to then undefeated prospect Seth Mitchell on April 28, 2012 in a bout where Witherspoon had Mitchell badly hurt in several occasions.

“I feel good and rejuvenated after the layoff,” said Witherspoon.

“I haven’t been out this long because I wanted to. I had several fights fall through, so I decided to start my own company and do my own shows and I can’t wait until July 12 to put on a great event not far from where I live,” said Witherspoon.

In the six-round co-feature, undefeated Middleweight Thomas “Cornflake” LaManna of Millville, NJ will take on Zain Shah (5-3, 3 KO’s) of Centerville, VA in a Middleweight bout.

In six round bouts:

Jr. Middleweight Louis Cream (3-0) of Camden, NJ will fight Ismael Garcia (6-0, 3 KO’s) of Vineland, NJ in a battle of undefeated Jr. Middleweights.

Tim Witherspoon Jr. (10-4-1, 2 KO’s) of Philadelphia will battle undefeated Jeff Lentz (3-0, 1 KO) of Lanoka Harbor, NJ in a Welterweight battle.

Pro debuter’s in Lightweight Steven Ortiz of Philadelphia and Welterweight Nick Valiere of Forked River, New Jersey will participate in 4-round bouts.

Tuesday Night Fights, a unique Philadelphia boxing event that will feature the best young talent in the Delaware Valley, will make its debut on Tuesday, July 29, at 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia.

Presented by Joe Hand Promotions and D and D Management, Tuesday Night Fights will showcase both amateur boxers and professional fighters representing various boxing gyms throughout the Delaware Valley. The plan is to make Tuesday Night Fights a monthly event at 2300 Arena.

On July 29, the card will feature five professional fights and four amateur bouts.

Highlighting the professional card is a six-round middleweight match between Fred Jenkins Jr. (7-1-1) of ABC Rec Center in North Philadelphia and Jeremy Trussell (8-1-1) from Baltimore, Md.

Fred Jenkins Jr. (7-1-1, 1 KO), Philadelphia vs. Jeremy “The Truth” Trussell (8-1-1, 1 KO), Baltimore,Md.

Jenkins, age 27 and standing 5-7, had an amateur record of 35-5 with 17 knockouts at 165 pounds. Trussell , 29, started his pro career with eight straight victories. His pro debut on March 8, 2013 was a third-round TKO over Nycholas Ellerb at Club One Fitness in Millersville, MD. Jenkins’ most recent win was a six-round decision win over Gilbert Alex Sanchez on March 14, 2014 at Hamilton Manor, Hamilton Township, NJ. Jenkins is the son of legendary trainer Fred Jenkins, who is a member of the PA Boxing Hall of Fame and has been involved in the sport for 43 years, including as a boxer. Fred Jenkins Sr. has developed countless boxers at ABC Recreation Center, including world champion Charlie “Choo Choo” Brown and current heavyweight contender Bryant Jennings.

Trussell was a busy fighter in 2013 going undefeated in six bouts. His streak would reach eight after his first two fights in 2014. Jenkins made his pro debut on March 18, 2011 with a second-round TKO over Scott Brunner at Harrah’s Philadelphia in Chester. Jenkins opened his career with five straight wins. His only loss was a fourth-round TKO to Roberto Young at Bally’s Atlantic City on May 19, 2012. Trussell is coming off a four-round draw to David Rohn on June 28, 2014 at the Du Burns Arena in Baltimore. Prior to that, he suffered a sixth-round knockout to Taneal Goyco on April 12, 2014 at Patapsco Arena in Baltimore. Among Trussell’s eight wins, six have come with a KO or TKO in the first round.

Also, Keith Downs (2-0), representing the Willingboro Recreation Center, faces Robert Sweeney (2-0) from the Marian Anderson Rec Center, South Philadelphia, in a four-round middleweight contest.

A couple of accomplished amateur fighters, junior lightweight Avery Sparrow and junior middleweight Donte Wright, both from the Joe Hand Boxing Gym, will make their pro debuts.

In 2013, Sparrow, who went 45-8 as an amateur, placed seventh at the USA Boxing National Championships in Spokane, WA. He also reached the quarterfinals at the Junior Olympic National Tournament at Camp Lejeune, NC, in 2010.

Wright, who collected 160 amateur wins, won the Philadelphia District Golden Gloves Tournament four times, the National PAL Tournament and was named Outstanding Fighter in the Philadelphia Diamond Belt Tournament.

Cage Fury Fighting Championships featherweight champion, Levan Makashvili (8-0) meets challenger and former Bellator tournament veteran, Alexandre “Popo” Bezerra (16-3) at CFFC 38 at Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, N.J. on August 9.

Makashvili still remains undefeated after defeating Scott Heckman at CFFC 35 to earn the CFFC title. To earn his title shot, Makashvili won a unanimous decision over Jordan Stiner. Makashvili has won three fights by knockout. At Ring of Combat XLVI, Makashvili defeated Tom English via knockout at 1:39 in round 2. Prior to the victory, Makshvili won by KO at 0:17 in round 1 over Thomas Walsh.

The champ will have his hands full when he meets a former Bellator Tournament featherweight, Bezerra. This 9-time Bellator veteran went (7-2) inside the promotion with losses to Marlon Sandro and Mike Richman. Most recently, Bezerra earned a rear-naked choke finish over Bruno Dias in November, his first fight outside of Bellator in over ten fights. Bezerra has a lot of experience fighting big-name fighters, but has not had much success in defeating them, including a submission lost to UFC featherweight, Charles Oliveira. Bezerra has found a lot of success in defeating a lot of highly regarded regional fighters like Will Martinez, Scott Heckman, and Kenny Foster. Bezerra was set to make his CFFC debut at CFFC 32 against Jordan Stiner, but injury forced him out of the bout.

Jonovin “Spyder” Webb (6-0) will face UFC veteran, Daniel “The Anvil” Stittgen (9-3) at Cage Fury Fighting Championships 38 for the vacant CFFC welterweight title at Borgata Hotel Spa and Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. on August 8.

Webb continued his unbeaten streak with an impressive decision over Mike Winters at CFFC 35. Previous to his most recent outing, Webb earned a submission victory over Whitney Jean-Francois at CFFC 31. “Spyder” has fought all six of his professional bouts inside the CFFC cage. In late October of 2013, Webb defeated Aung La N Sang via first round TKO at CFFC 28. Webb has collected three wins by decision, one by TKO and has gone all three rounds just once in his career. Webb also has earned wins over Steven Wampler, Jason Lee and Robert Gittens.

Stittgen is a former UFC welterweight who is currently riding a two fight win streak. Stittgen defeated both Eric Hammerich and Dan McGlasson via submission. Stittgen has not tasted defeat since being cut by the UFC. In his UFC debut, Stittgen was knocked out via head kick by Stephen Thompson at UFC 143. Stittgen lost to Marcelo Guimaraes via split decision at UFC on FUEL TV 4 which eventually led to “The Anvil” being cut. In 2011, he earned three strait victories which earned him his ticket inside the octagon.

Off the Chain (OTC) returns on GFL with “August Apocalypse” on August 2 from the Summit Arena in Hot Springs, Arkansas.   This event brings together all of the top fighters in Arkansas and the surrounding area as OTC puts on another stacked pro/am card for the rabid fans of the area. Currently the event plans to have 20+ fights!

Scheduled to compete, Anthony Jones takes on Aldir Junior. Both men have a lot riding on this fight as they are just starting out in their pro careers and looking to climb the ladder fast. Jones is a solid wrestler with strong takedowns while Junior is an expert grappler and can hit submissions off of his back which he will need as Jones will be looking to take Junior down fast and hard. Expect a chess match on the ground with Jones’ ground and pound and Junior’s submission attempts.

In other action, Carlton Little (3-2) fights Lemarcus Tucker (2-0). Little is a heavy hitter and brings KO power into the fight with both hands. Little is usually in the running for fight of the night and this fight with Tucker looks to continue in that tradition. Tucker turned pro earlier this year and already had 2 wins via stoppage. Tucker will look for number 3 against Little. Tucker brings terrific ground and pound into the fight and got his last opponent to submit due to strikes. If this fight hits the ground, it will be a game changer as whoever ends up on top will probably finish the fight there.

Don’t miss “August Apocalypse” presented by Off the Chain on August 2. Watch all the action and witness the champions of tomorrow as they fight today, live on the GFL Combat Sports Network exclusively on iPPV.
