White, who was born in Detroit, moved to Reston, VA in his teens and now lives in Smithsburg, MD (located between Frederick and Hagerstown), scored an impressive eight-round decision over Dorin Spivey on the last Patriot Center card, living up to his nickname and earning points with fans for his aggressive style and toughness. The Herndon, VA high school graduate is looking to rebound from a tough, nationally-televised loss to Verquan Kimbrough on February 22nd.
White will have his hands full with fellow southpaw Fuller who has won three in a row and is undefeated in his last five bouts (he’s scheduled to fight John Roby April 14 in Iowa). Born and raised in Detroit, Fuller has battled such world-class competition as current IBF Junior Welterweight champion Lovemore N'dou and former WBC Lightweight champ Diego Corrales. Highly-regard TOMMY BROOKS, who has worked with Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield among others, serves as Fuller’s trainer.
LANGE-CABELL II: THE REMATCH, presented by JACKIE “THE FIRST LADY OF BOXING” KALLEN’s Ice Promotions, will feature JIMMY LANGE (27-3-2, 19 KOs) vs. Fontaine “The Flame” Cabell (21-6-2, 16 KOs) in a 12-round Main Event rematch for the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) Continental America’s 154-pound title. Matchmaker JD Brown will complete the undercard by showcasing a mix of local and regional up-and-coming stars and battle-tested veterans.
