An October Night of Boxing in Charlotte

GAR1680 would like to acknowledge and thank Allen Branch (trainer of professional boxer Joshua Tufte) and his daughter for their contributions to this report and for sharing the video (below) that Allen’s daughter did an outstanding job with.

Charlotte’s most recent professional boxing event occurred a little over a month ago, on October 27. A total of 10 bouts had taken place that evening, with seven of them in the heavyweight division. A cheerfully excitable crowd of about 200 spectators attended the 3-hour event at the ReelWorks Studios Music Factory venue.

The co-main events featured undefeated Johua “Too Tuff” Tufte of Kernersville, North Carolina taking on Jamal Woods from Arkansas and Anthony “The Tyger” Hanshaw, also from Kernersville, in a match against John Michael Terry. Josh Tufte extended his unbeaten record to 10-0 with a 5th round stoppage of Woods and Tony Hanshaw got a 6 round unanimous decision over Terry.

The crowd, most which remained at the facility the entire time, often expressed excitement throughout the event and appeared pleased to have attended an excellent night of boxing promoted by Bellonora McCallum’s World of Champions organization. Ms. McCallum also served as ring announcer for the bouts. Fitness trainer Allen Branch, who trains Josh Tufte and other professional prizefighters, told GAR1680 that Ms. Bellonora McCallum was a nice lady. "She did well as promoter and announcer and was very professional with regards to dealing with all of us,” Branch said.

The event was not televised and there didn’t appear to be any reporters or media coverage, but other boxing promoters did attend. The facility was basically a remodeled warehouse with raw flooring and walls, but served well overall for a night of club fights. It was clean and had ample parking lot space. Snack type foods, pizza, and beverages were also available.
