When Mack Allison IV next steps inside the boxing ring at the Waldorf Cultural Center on Saturday, May 4, 201, the 21-year-old Baltimore lightweight hopes he’ll emerge with another victory that pushes him closer to a world title bout. Known as “Papi,” the scheduled match will be the 13th of Allison’s young career, one that has been heavily influenced by his father, Baltimore legend Mack Allison III.
