Baltimore-Pittsburgh “The Rematch” set for May 4!

Baltimore, MD (April 13, 2012) – Promoter Jake Smith of Baltimore Boxing Promotions announced that Team Baltimore and Team Pittsburgh will fight again Friday, May 4 at the Du Burns Arena.

Dubbed as, “The Rematch”, the card is headlined by a Maryland State Title bout between Jerome Featherstone Jr. and Maurice Stokes. A Maryland native who attended The Boys’ Latin School, Featherstone Jr. later became a Marine and standout wrestler at the University of Oklahoma. Featherstone Jr, the son of a Baltimore wrestling legend, is one of the region’s better known boxers.
The two squads previously met on March 23 at Michael’s Eighth Avenue in nearby Glen Burnie, MD, with Team Baltimore earning a close victory following an outstanding night of Olympic-style boxing. Throughout the evening, the capacity crowd was on their feet enjoying the nonstop action. Upon the card’s completion, both the fighters and spectators were eager to know when there’d be a rematch.

“I’ve been promoting both pro and amateur shows for a number of years now and this is the best response I’ve ever had following one of my cards,” said Smith, a former pro fighter who runs a local gym Baltimore Boxing and Fitness. “This really reminded me of a Ravens-Steelers game. The fights were down to the wire and the crowd was really into it. Everybody wanted another Baltimore-Pittsburgh card as soon as possible and I’m happy to deliver it!”

Individual tickets purchased in advance start at $25 and VIP tables of 10 range from $350-500. Individual VIP tickets are available for $50 and all VIP ticketholders can enjoy catered food from various local eateries and half price drinks during a special happy hour.
