Dominic Wade undercard stacked with local fighters

On May 18th, Dominic Wade is slated to fight Nick Brinson at the Entertainment and Sports Arena in Washington DC.

The undercard will highlight boxers from the Washington DC area:

Tiara Brown (7-0-0), super featherweight

Not many boxers can say they was named Washington DC Police Office of the Year but Brown has that honor.

As an amateur, Brown won two gold medals at the World Championships.

In her seven bouts as a pro, only two have gone the distance. In her most recent bout, she stopped Dahiana Santana in the fourth round.

Antonio Magruder (5-0-1), super lightweight

Magruder will look to bounce back from a majority draw in his last outing. The DC native took the fight with Matt Murphy after a two-year layoff.

Prior to that outing, the DC native had four knockouts in five fights.

Sam Crossed (8-0-0), cruiserweight

Crossed is coming off a split decision win over Twon Smith.

Considered an action fighter, Crossed is one of the more popular local fighters. ESPN’s Dan Rafael once described Crossed as having a “cult like following”.

David Grayton (15-3-1), welterweight

After winning his first 14 fights, Grayton has hit a tough stretch. In his last five fighters, he’s 1-3-1. In his last bout, he lost to undefeated Terrel Williams by unanimous decision. Prior to that he fell to Miguel Cruz.

Grayton will be looking to get back to his winning ways.

Patrick Harris (15-0), super lightweight

Harris will be coming off a short turnaround. He last fought on March 24th where he defeated Bergman Aguilar by unanimous decision. He won by shutout on all three judges’ scorecard.

Harris has a Regional Gold Glove title and well as USA Boxing National Championship to his name. He is the nephew of Lamont Peterson.

Jordan White (7-1), featherweight

White is currently on a three fight winning streak after losing the first bout of his career. All three fights during the streak has been won by stoppage.

In his last fight, White stopped Ndira Spearman in the first round.

Taurean Venable (pro debut), lightweight

Venable will be making his pro debut on this card.
