Junior lightweight prospect Jordan White defeated late-sub Brandon Valdes by split-decision late Saturday night at the Maryland Live Casino in Hanover, Maryland.

One judge scored the bout 95-94 for Valdez, while the other two judges scored the bout 97-92 and 96-93 for White, who improves to 13-1, 10 knockouts.

White, who resides in nearby Washington, DC, dropped Valdes in round 2. Despite the knockdown, Valdes was the aggressor through the rest of the fight, walking down White in an attempt to connect to the head and body.

The tactic worked as White began to slow down during the second half of the fight. White was successful in connecting with counter left hooks and right crosses, but Valdes was able to dictate the pace of the fight.

White was coming off a knockout win over Joe Perez in his last bout on October 23. In his previous fight on March 10, which aired on a ShoBox telecast, White stopped Misael Lopez in round six.

Valdes, who is originally from Barranquilla, Colombia and now lives and trains in the Los Angeles area, drops to 14-3, 7 KOs. 

In the co-feature, fringe super middleweight contender Demond Nicholson of nearby Laurel dropped Gabriel Pham twice en route to a knockout win in round 5.

Nicholson (25-4-1, 21 KOs) dropped Pham in the opening round. Nicholson dominated the action until he dropped Pham again in round 5. Pham was not able to beat the count and was counted out by referee Bill Clancy at 2:54.

Pham, who resides in Atlantic City, New Jersey, dropped to 15-3, 8 KOs.

Junior featherweight prospect Brandon Chambers of Gwynn Oak, Maryland improved to 7-0-1, 4 KOs, winning by knockout after Paul Carroll suffered an ankle injury that forced him to quit at 1:02 of the opening round.

Carroll, who resides in Columbia, South Carolina, drops to 4-3, 4 KOs.

Welterweight Tyhler Williams of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a graduate of Penn State University, defeated Maurice Anthony by unanimous decision. Scores were 60-54, 59-55, and 58-56 for Williams, who improves to 6-0, 4 KOs. 

Anthony, who resides in Ypsilanti, Michigan, falls to 3-4, 3 KOs.

Super middleweight Anthony Williams, Jr. of nearby Baltimore improved to 6-1, 2 KOs by defeating Harrisburg, Pennsylvania’s Brent Oren by split-decision.

One judge scored the bout 58-56 for Oren (4-8, 1 KO), while the other two judges scored the bout 59-55 and 58-56 for Williams.
