Wins by Ajamu, Zhilei, Hilton, Gamhour and Taylor

For Immediate Release
Atlantic City, New Jersey (August 5, 2017)–Derrick Webster continued his quest towards a world title shot by taking out Lamar Harris in a scheduled eight-round super middleweight bout that headlined a six-bout card at The Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City.
The show was promoted by Mis Downing Promotions in association with Square Ring Promotions.

Webster dropped Harris at the end of round one as he landed a perfect straight left hand.  After that it was a matter of when Webster would end the night., as Harris was hurt, but came out to endure 28 seconds of pounding before the bout was stopped.
Webster, 167.8 lbs of Glassboro, NJ is now 24-1 with 13 knockouts.  Harris, 167.9 lbs of Saint Louis, Missouri is now 9-14-4.
“We have been working hard, and now I am looking for a title.  I want George Groves,” said Webster.
“I knew after I dropped him after the first round, the fight would be over soon thereafter.  I know Groves is in the tournament, so why not Badou Jack.  I would love to fight him.”
Prince Badi Ajamu shook eight years of ring rust to pound out an eight-round uannimous decision over Edgar Perez in a cruiserweight bout.

Ajamu, 191.4 lbs of Camden, NJ won by scores of 80-72 twice and 79-73 and is now 28-3-1. Perez, 190 lbs of Chicago is 7-22.

“It was a good fight. I give myself a C. Everything is about knockouts,” said Ajamu. “I broke him down mentally. You could see that I had a lot of ring rust, as I don’t miss as many shots as I did, but I started to feel good around the 5th round.”

Ajamu has been linked to a rematch with Roy Jones, Jr. who beat Ajamu back in 2006.
Jones was ringside and believes that the fight could happen in November.
“He did more than enough to earn the rematch tonight.  Now it is just a matter of making it work financially and all by getting sponsorship’s and such, and that fight can happen, said Jones.

World-ranked heavyweight Zhang Zhilei hammered out Nick Guivas in round one of their scheduled ten-round bout.

Zhilei dropped Guivas in the first frame with a hard six-punch combination in the corner. Seconds later, Zhilei finsihed off the fight with a crushing four-punch combination on the ropes and the bout was stopped at 2:43.

Zhilei, 254.8 lbs of Zhoukou, China is now 17-0 with 13 knockouts. Guivas, 238 lbs of Topeka, KS is 13-8-2.

Mike Hilton went the distance for the first time, but still came out with the six-round unanimous decision over Willis Lockett in a cruiserweight bout.

Hilton, 198.5 lbs of Trenton, NJ won by scores of 60-54, 58-56 & 60-53 to raise his unblemished mark to 7-0. Lockett, 194.6 lbs of Takoma Park, MD is 14-21-6.

 
Shaddy Gamhour stopped Jessie Singletary in first round of their scheduled four round middleweight bout.
Gamhour, who is trained by Roy Jones, Jr. landed a hard right hand that sent Singletary to the canvas and the bout was stopped at 1:43.
Gamhour, 163,5 lbs of Pensacola, FL is now 4-0 with three knockouts.  Singletary, 167.3 lbs of Washington, DC is 0-3.

PRESS CONFERENCE THIS THURSDAY AT 5 PM ET AT THE FLAGSHIP HOTEL
For Immediate Release
Atlantic City, New Jersey (August 2, 2017)–In 2009, and after winning two in a row, Light Heavyweight contender Prince Badi Ajamu walked away from the ring at age 37.
Ajamu, who was a perennial contender had a record of 27-3-1 with 15 knockouts, but decided that he needed some time away from competitive action.
Fast forward eight years, Ajamu steps back in the ring as he takes on Edgar Perez in the six-round co-feature bout this Saturday night at the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City.
The card, which will headlined by super middleweight Derrick Webster (23-1, 12 KO’s) of Glassboro, New Jersey taking on Lamar Harris  (9-13-4, 5 Kos) of Saint Lois, Missouri in a bout scheduled for eight rounds, is promoted by Mis Downing Promotions and Square Ring Promotions.
Ajamu, now 45 years-old of Camden, New Jersey has kept in great shape while away from the squared circle.
“I have been helping people in the gym the whole time, and I decided that if I am putting time in that, I mind as well get back in there and do this on my own,” said Ajamu.
Ajamu also believes that being in the ring will also help fight for a cause that he has been involved with for sometime.
“What better way to bring attention to child abduction, which is a big problem in this country then to be in the ring and help get the message out there.”
Ajamu said that at age 45 that this is not a one-and-done situation, as he plans to stick around for specific purposes.
“The goal is take this as far as I can.  I want to win another title and tie another Camden legend, “Jersey” Joe Walcott,” said the former Pennsylvania, IBC Inter-Continental, WBC Continental Americas, WBC Caribbean, , WBO NABO and World Boxing Foundation Light Heavyweight champion.
Another goal is a rematch with legendary Roy Jones, Jr.
Jones defeated Ajamu in 2006, and its’s more than a coincidence that Jones will be in a attendance as a co-promoter for the event.
“Yes there is definitely a reason why I am on this card, and Roy is co-promoting, but I have to get past Perez.  I know he is a tough fighter who comes forward, and he is capable as I know Lavarn Harvell who was undefeated at the time that he beat him.”
“I have been in the gym, and have been working on things.  You will see a more technical version of me,.  Like I said I been in the gym, and now I want to use the energy on something significant.”
Also on the bill will be former United States Olympian Terrance Cauthen (36-8, 9 KO’s) of Trenton, NJ will fight Nick Valliere (5-2, 2 KO’s) of Forked River, New Jersey in a six-round super welterweight bout.

For Immediate Release
Atlantic City, New Jersey (August 1, 2017)–Super Middleweight contender Derrick Webster is looking to fight the elite of the division, but he first first must get by Lamar Harris in a scheduled eight-round bout that will headline a big night of boxing at The Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The show is promoted by Mis Downing Promotions and Square Ring Promotions.
Webster of Glassboro, New Jersey has a record of 23-1 with 12 knockouts.
Webster has been on a roll, and now he looks to continue his momentum against Harris.
“I really don’t know much about him.  I just know that he knows that he is fighting me.  I don’t know him, but I am sure he knows who I am,” said Webster.
Webster attributes his most recent success to a more active schedule as this will be his 3rd fight of this year and 5th fight in the last 14 months.
“The more that I fight, the more consistent that I am.  When I had other people in charge of my career, I was fighting less frequent.  Maybe fighting every six or seven months.  Now I have been more active and that goes hand in hand with my performances.  I was getting in the ring to trying shake off ring-rust and now I am going in there not worrying about that.”
Webster is not overlooking Harris, but He is looking to close of 2017 fighting higher level of opponents, and in 2018 looking for a big title shot.
“My target is WBA champion George Groves.  I never wanted to face Harris.  I wanted to fight guys with better records and for many reasons including opponents pricing themselves out, but guys won’t fight me.  I do appreciate that Harris stepped up for the challenge so I respect him for that.  Hopefully I can fight someone like Mike Tiberi next for a major regional title, then have my eye towards a world title in 2018.”
