NUTLEY, NJ (APRIL 3, 2014)--This Friday night in Parsippany, NJ at the Parsippany PAL, GH3 Promotions in association with Greg Cohen Promotions will put on a great night of boxing that will feature three of the top prospects in the GH3 Promotions stable.

 

Undefeated Middleweight Antoine Douglas (13-0, 8 KO's); Super Middleweight Jerry Odom (9-0, 9 KO's) & Super Featherweight Wanzell Ellison (10-0-1, 5 KO's) will all be in action with Douglas headlining in the 10-round main event while Odom and Ellison will see action in 6-round bouts.

 

The show will be streamed live on www.gfl.tv for just $9.99.

 

Douglas will take on former world title challenger Luca Messi.

 

Douglas of Burke, Virginia is coming off a 1st round stoppage over Jeremy Yelton on March 15th.

 

Douglas is not an awe of Messi, who sports a record of 37-9-1 with 13 knockouts.

 

"He has a lot of experience but his opposition was precise and he did not perform against the better opposition,"said Douglas.

 

"All i know that he is 5'7" and I know I have a height and reach advantage."

 

Douglas gained national recognition when he scored a 8-round unanimous decision over undefeated Marquis Davis on January 17 that shown throughout the country on ShoBox.

 

"Since the fight on ShoBox, I have been getting a lot of buzz and I feel after two or three more fights, I will be ready for the significant fights that will shape my future,"finished Douglas.

 

Odom of Bowie, Maryland will take on Dougas Otieno Okola (24-8, 12 KO's) of Nairobi, Kenya.

 

"My training went well," said Odom, who is coming off a 2nd round stoppage of William Gill on March 15.

 

Despite fighting less than 3 weeks later, Odom is continuing to hit his stride.

 

"I just made an adjustment to be fighting so soon.  I only know that my 

opponent is a southpaw."

 

Odom has a perfect knockout streak but unlike most fighters, the early win is not on his mind.

 

"I don't think about the knockouts.  If it happens, it happens.  I know I have that talent so the knockouts do not surprise me.  I just do my due diligence in the ring.  Each fight I look forward to going rounds.  I have never underestimate anyone i fight," finished Odom. 

 

Ellison of Newark, NJ will take part in a six round bout against English import and undefeated Iain Weaver (5-0, 3 KO's).

 

"Everything is good and I am ready to fight,"said Ellison.

 

Ellison has seen very little of Weaver but he knows enough to know what to expect.

 

"I know he is a southpaw from the United Kingdom.  He is a slick boxer that is not very aggressive."

 

Going into his 12th fight, Ellison knows that the best is yet to come.

 

"My confidence is growing with each fight.  I continue to learn more and more and now I am very comfortable in the ring and I just let my performance speak for itself.  Hopefully by the end of the year I will start being in 8 & 10 round fights but that is up to my promoter but I am always in shape.  All the hard work, the running the sparring is done.  I am just waiting to prove to everybody that I am the best 130-pound fighter in the world," Finished Ellison.
