DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley Replaces Tim Coleman on July 10 Card

Former World Champion to Fight Damian Fuller in Co-Main Event at Patriot Center after Coleman Suffers Laceration in Training

FAIRFAX, VA (June 28, 2010) – Former world champion DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley of Washington, D.C. (36-13-1, 21 KOs) will fight Detroit southpaw Damian Fuller (30-7-1, 14 KOs) in the July 10th co-main event at the Patriot Center, replacing Baltimore’s Tim “The Pitbull” Coleman (17-1-1, 4 KOs) who suffered a laceration on his head during training last Thursday that forced him out of the fight.

The last-minute replacement worked out well for Corley who was lined up to face undefeated Dominican Francisco Contreras on July 2. However, that bout recently fell out providing him the opportunity to fight for the second time at the Patriot Center. Corley and Fuller were originally scheduled to fight as the co-main event on the September 26, 2009 Patriot Center card, but Fuller suffered an injury forcing him to withdraw. Corley went on to record an eight-round decision over Harrison Cuello.

A Northeast D.C. native and former World Boxing Organization (WBO) light welterweight champion, Corley remains a strong force in the light welterweight division with an impressive resume that includes battles against Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Miguel Cotto, Zab Judah, Junior Witter, Randal Bailey and Devon Alexandria. In his last fight, he lost to top prospect Freddy Hernandez last February.

The “No Excuses” card features nine action-packed fight headlined by popular junior middleweight contender, Jimmy Lange (31-4-2, 22 KOs) of Great Falls, VA taking on Jimmy LeBlanc (12-16-4, 4 KOs) of Weymouth, MA in the 10-round Main Event.
