Back on April 9, Steve Weimer came back from a 39-month layoff with a four round unanimous decision over 73-fight veteran, Joseph Figueroa in Springfield, Virginia.

With the win, Weimer raised his perfect mark to 10-0 and the middleweight prospect from York, Pennsylvania is primed and ready to keep the momentum going.

“He was a tough guy, but I boxed him,” Weimer said of Figueroa. “I used my length and range to set up the right hand to score a knockdown in the first round. After the layoff, it was good to shake the rust off.”

“I kept my composure and fought my fight. I did exactly what I wanted to do. It was the perfect comeback fight.

There won’t be anymore long layoffs for Weimer as he is already preparing for his next outing, which is scheduled to take place on June 4th in Springfield.

“I am already back in the gym for June 4th. There are a few guys they are talking to and I am just preparing for whoever takes the fight.”

The fight was also a new beginning for Weimer as it was his first bout under the promotional banner of Jeter Promotions.

“Being my first fight under Jeter Promotions, it went really well. Tony Jeter is a smart guy and a good promoter. He focuses on me and I know he will get me the fights that I need to get me to where I need to be,” said the 26 year-old Weimer.

Said Jeter Promotions CEO, Tony Jeter, “Steve wants to fight anybody. He has the confidence to go along with his talent. I know if we bring him along the right way, he can do big things. The sky is the limit for him. He has all the intangibles that a promoter looks for that go along with his ability. He is every marketable and he can fight and I am just so excited to what the future has in store for Steve.”
