Capital Centre resumes its boxing shows featuring area fighters Tuesday night with two 12-rounders and two 10-rounders.
Ralyh Palladin of Lanham will oppose Gene Wells of Orlando, Fla., in the junior middleweight main event. Palladin is 34 years old but he had no trouble stopping Mike Baker in April and now has a 29-4-2 record.
Wells is a veteran of 71 bouts, winning 55, 24 by knockouts, losing 11 and drawing in five.
If that bout does not produce lots of action, it well may be upstaged by Ronme McGarvey of Adelphi against Migust Meza of Los Angeles in a feather weight contest, or popular Leo (Kid) Saenz of Potomac against Bob Payton of Camden, N.J., in a middle-weight fight.
Palladin's bout against Baker was billed as the main event, but Saenz took the play away from it with his rousing victory over Jimmy Savage of Philadelphia.
Savage it back, against Tyrone Phelps of New York City.
McGavey is an area favorite with his busy, hard-punching style. He took a bout on short notice against junior middleweight champion Alfredo Escalera and was knocked out.
McGarvey still has a good record, losing only two of 33 bouts. The other loss was to William Berry of Philadephia by decision, after McGarvy had won 30 straight.
His opponent on Tuesday, Meza, has won 30 of 40 bout and , like McGarvey, has knocked out 20 opponents.
Saenz, with a 23-3-2 record, will have an edge in experience over Payton, who has had only 15 bouts, winning 11, four by knockouts.
