Jake Smith is promoting another boxing show, this time tonight at the Pikesville Armory. A list of the usual suspects to be featured on the professional card begins with super middleweight (168 pounds) Tony Cygan (9-0, six knockouts) and heavyweight Jed Phipps (16-3, nine KOs), both from Baltimore. Fan favorite Mike Dietrich will be there as well, but the unbeaten 22-year-old heavyweight won't be getting into the ring. Instead, Dietrich will be ringside, wearing a colostomy bag and feeling "lucky to be alive" after a stabbing incident last month left him with a punctured lung, a punctured heart valve and a severely damaged colon.

When Jake Smith first saw former wrestler Jerome Featherstone Jr. working out six months ago at the Baltimore Boxing Club, the veteran trainer and promoter spotted his talent immediately. "The way he trained was unbelievable," Smith said. "I saw him and I was like, 'Holy hell, this kid's got something.'" The two began working together, and three months ago Featherstone won his debut amateur fight. In his second bout, on the March 23 "Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh" card at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, the Boys' Latin alumnus won the East Coast Championship middleweight belt, nearly scoring a third-round knockout.

In the final analysis, it was just the sort of fight a guy needs when he's getting ready to challenge for a world championship, although Vincent Pettway probably isn't buying into the thinking right now.Due to face champion Gianfranco Rosi for the International Boxing Federation junior middleweight crown and hopeful it happens within a few months, Pettway hadn't had any serious ring work in more than a year heading into last night's 12-rounder against Dan...

Middleweight Mike Paschall and cruiserweight Russ Shiflett are longtime friends, but for the past 10 days, they have sparred like bitter enemies. "They were really tearing into each other, going all out," said Jake Smith, who witnessed their sessions at his Baltimore Boxing Club. "They're more than ready to punish somebody else now." They'll get an opportunity to do that tomorrow night, when Smith promotes his first entirely pro show at Du Burns Arena. Shiflett, a Dundalk resident, will go after his seventh professional victory in as many bouts against Joe Blyther (7-3)

Baltimore light heavyweight Corey Cummings, who trains under well-known manager Mack Lewis, will leave tomorrow to begin training at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., for the U.S. Amateur national championships to be held next weekend at the same site. Cummings, 21, improved to 21-10 (14 knockouts) with his four-round unanimous decision over Atlantic City Police Athletic League champion Alfred Kinsey on Jan. 20. That victory, in a regional tournament in Upper Darby, Pa., near Philadelphia, qualified Cummings for a spot at the training center.
