Wendy Toussaint certainly showed the boxing world what he was made of in his last fight. 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, to the absolute awe and respect of the Detroit (Holmes) fans in attendance and the world watching on DAZN. 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 was robbed of a career defining victory, dropping a highly questionable split decision. Clearly, Toussaint returns home on October 28th seeking vengeance.
“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.”
Across from Toussaint will be Memphis born super welterweight “Quadruple J” Jermone Jamar Jones Jr., now living, training, and fighting out of Phoenix, Arizona. The heavy-handed Jones has won 6 of his 7 professional victories by knockout and will pose a one punch KO threat for Toussaint at any given moment in their 8-round bout. Jones is coming off a well fought battle with undefeated Farid Ngoga, this past June in Phoenix. Jones is not backing down from an opportunity to showcase his skills in New York and seeks the spoils of victory.
Jones had this to say about the fight, “I wanted to fight two more times before the year is over with and that opportunity came up October 28. I’m going to be in New York, and I can’t wait. I wanted to thank Star Boxing, Joe DeGuardia, Tony and Leo for putting this together and for the opportunity to fight in the big city. I’m coming to take a bite out of the big apple!”
