Jake Smith's Baltimore Boxing Promotions returns to Michael's Eighth Avenue on March 22 for a tribute event to the late Scott Wagner. Before Smith hosted Wagner's cards at Michael's Eighth, Wagner's Ballroom Boxing ran more than 70 shows over 15 years. His series featured many fighters who went on to become world champions, such as Terence Crawford, Hasim Rahman , Kermit Cintron, Orlin Norris and Al Cole. A longtime friend of Smith's, Wagner stopped promoting in 2009 and offered the family-owned Michael's Eighth to Baltimore Boxing Promotions. Wagner died at age 49 on Feb. 16. "Scott was one of my closest friends and I was devastated by his untimely passing," said Smith, who co-promoted with Wagner and also fought for him in 1996. Headlining the Olympic-style boxing event is a match between Deshawn "Soulsnatcher" Chase and Ocean City's Omar Serrano for the East Coast middleweight title. In the co-featured bout, Baltimore Boxing's Tyrell Boyd meets Tyler Langer. Baltimore Boxing is also hosting a fundraiser for Brenda Davis, the wife of longtime trainer Adrian Davis. All proceeds from the fundraiser will help cover Brenda Davis' health-care costs. Tickets and tables are available by calling 410-375-9175 or going to baltimoreboxing.com.
