Douglas and Odom look to shine Friday

GH3 Boxing promotions


Nutley, NJ (January 15, 2014)- Three members of the GH3 Promotions’ stable will be in action in action on Friday in Memphis, Tennessee, with two of them featured on national television as part of Showtime’s SHOBOX: The New Generation.


Undefeated jr. middleweight John "Apollo Kidd" Thompson (14-0, 5 KO’s) takes on Frank Galarza (11-0-2, 7 KO’s) in an 8-round bout. Also, undefeated middleweight Antoine "Action" Douglas (11-0, 7 KO’s) takes on Marquis Davis (8-0-2, 5 KO’s) in an 8-round bout.

Both Thompson and Douglas will be part of the live SHOBOX broadcast, while undefeated super middleweight Jerry Odom (7-0, 7 first-round KO’s) battles Demetrius Walker (6-2-1, 4 KO’s) in a six-round bout that will take place before the cameras roll.

"Camp was excellent and I had great sparring," said Thompson, who lives and trains in Newark, New Jersey. "I see that Galarza likes to box and comes forward but i believe he is a bit slow."

The 24-year-old Thompson doesn’t see the bout as a battle for Metro New York supremacy, even though Galarza in from nearby Brooklyn. "Nobody in New Jersey knows who he is. Everybody knows who I am", said Thompson.

This will be Thompson’s second bout on SHOBOX. In May 2013, he scored four knockdowns en route to an 8-round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Geovanny Rodriguez.

"This fight is no big deal. I have been through this before. I have to come prepared regardless."

Facing Galarza fits into Thompson’s plan of fighting top competition, as his last four opponents had a combined record of 37-4-1. Thompson knows these types of fights will advance his career. "To be the best, you have to beat the best. I am not here to just fight anybody", said Thompson.

Thompson is an accomplished artist and he has something very special planned for his ring entrance.

"I am going to bring my paintings into the ring. You see guys with the entourage bring their belts. Well on Friday, I am going to bring my paintings."

Douglas of Burke, Virginia, will be making his SHOBOX debut against the undefeated Davis. "It’s a good fight," said Douglas. "A step up and its for the WBC FECARBOX title and it is on Showtime., so I am ready. I just know he is undefeated. Other than that, I really do not know much on him.

"This is a great opportunity to show the fans what I am made of and capable of. I am just ready to fight."

Odom, of Washington, DC, is looking to keep his knockout streak alive, as none of his seven opponents have made it out of the first round.

"My camp has been good and I feel strong and fast. Everything is coming together and I am learning something new everyday", said the 20-year-old Odom.

Odom has never seen Walker fight, and has no scouting report of his opponent. "All I know that he is a southpaw", said Odom. ""I am just going to fight my fight. I am ready and just want to thank my team for the opportunity to fight and show the people my talent."

Said GH3 Promotions Vito Mielnicki: "I am very excited for these three kids. John and Antoine have a chance to make big statements on the televised portion, and I believe that it won’t be long before Jerry joins them on the same platform."
