Davis takes step back into ring Sept. 17


The comeback of Victor Davis will highlight the next Round One Promotions dinner/boxing show Sept. 17 at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie.

Davis hasn't fought in over a year, after undergoing surgery to repair a bruised retina in his right eye.

The 25-year-old fighter had been ranked in the top 10 among welterweights, compiling a 24-7-1 record, but now is fighting as a junior middleweight and training at the Harding/Lowry gymnasium in Pasadena.

Davis, whose last fight resulted in a six-round technical knockout of Sam Gervin on Jan. 10, 1991, at La Fontaine Bleu, will meet Levon Rouse (22-10-1) of North Carolina in a scheduled eight-round bout.

Other fighters with local ties appearing on the card include Pasadena super middleweight Carson McCourry, who will meet Victor Anderson of Virginia in a four-rounder.

Cliff "The Hammer" McPherson of Glen Burnie will face John Keys of Baltimore in a six-round light heavyweight bout.

They've meet twice before, with Keys taking a decision and another fight ending in a draw.

Sugar Boy Chew of Annapolis will square off against Tyrone Griffin of Pumphrey in a four-round super middleweight bout. Griffin is training in Crofton.

Another Annapolis resident, George Pindell, will meet Jorge Romero of North Carolina in a six-round super lightweight bout.

Matchmaker Josh Hall is expecting to add at least one more fight to the card.

Tickets can be obtained by calling 760-2699 or 768-7901.
