Wendy Toussaint faces Jerome Jones on October 28

On October 28 at The Paramount, super welterweight, Wendy Toussaint (14-2- 6 KO’s) returns to his adoptive hometown of Huntington, New York, in an 8-round super welterweight bout against, Jerome Jones (7-1, 6 KO’s) of Phoenix, Arizona at Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing “Rockin’ Fights” 45.

Toussaint-Jones will be chief support to Toussaint’s sparring partner, and Star Boxing stablemate Alex Vargas (13-0 5KO’S, Bellport, NY) who steps up in a 10-round super lightweight main event against Matt Conway (23-3, 9 KO’S, Pittsburgh, PA).

On June 3rd, Wendy could hardly see the bright lights of Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena (home of the Detroit Pistons and Detroit Red Wings) as his face was covered in crimson blood from a gnarly three-inch gash on his forehead caused by a head clash with hometown favorite Ardreal Holmes Jr.

Wendy was seemingly on his way to victory prior to the clash and was breaking down Holmes’ will and local fan support. With the blood streaming down his face, Wendy begged the ringside doctor allow the action to continue. Eventually the cut was determined to be too severe, and the fight was stopped by the referee in the 8th round. The bout went to the score cards in which Toussaint suffered a questionable split decision.

“Reflecting on my last fight in Detroit, Michigan, it's clear that the crowd’s passion and opinions of the results were strong,” said Toussaint.

“The judges' scores raised eyebrows, but that's the unpredictable nature of the sport we love. I respect the effort of my opponent, Ardreal Holmes Jr., and I acknowledge the intense fight we both had. Despite the cut that brought an early end to our bout, I know I showed I was willing to leave it all in the ring. I'm taking the lessons learned from that experience and channeling them into my upcoming fight on October 28th. Every match is an opportunity to showcase determination and growth, and I'm committed to delivering a performance that reflects that. Thank you to everyone who supports me on this journey."
