On Wednesday, April 25, in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, promoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing and co-promoter Lesley Commission of 340 Boxing Promotions will proudly present "Boxing in Paradise V" featuring knockout artist John Jackson (12-0, 11 KOs) defending his WBC Super Welterweight Youth World Title for the first time against fellow undefeated Jesus "Chino" Selig (14-0-1, 9 KOs) of Douglas, Arizona, in the 10-round main event.

23-year-old Jackson was a 2008 USVI Olympic representative. He and his brother, undefeated super middleweight contender Julius, are the sons of former World Middleweight Champion and one of the hardest punchers in boxing history, Julian "The Hawk" Jackson.

In the co-main event, brother Julius (12-0, 8 KOs), also a 2008 Olympian, will face Wilson "Kid Wonder" Theophile (8-3, 4 KOs) of Nassau, Bahamas, over 10 rounds for the vacant WBC Youth Super Middleweight Silver Title.

Topping the undercard, Samuel Rogers (11-0 9 KOs), nephew of Julian, will make the first defense of his WBC FECARBOX Title against Durrell Richardson (13-4, 5 KOs) of Youngstown, Ohio.

The balance of the card will consist of 2 four-round bouts, featuring the Joseph brothers of St. Croix, USVI.

Super Middleweight Clarence Joseph will be looking for his first victory (after being involved in two No Contest fights) against Eric Clinton 1-6 of Tallahassee, Florida, while super middleweight Austin Joseph will make his pro debut against Adam Schwartz (1-3) of Pembroke Pines, Florida.

Prior to these professional bouts the USVI's finest amateurs will see action as part of 340 Promotion's commitment to "Operation London 2012", which lends support to this year's USVI's Olympic hopefuls. Tags: John Jackson

I think their dad was the most concussive puncher in boxing history. Other fighters have a great KO record but Jackson won so many of his fights with the other man OUT COLD!
