Truax “I’m Coming To Revalidate My Position As Champion” – IBF Super Middleweight World Champion Caleb “Golden” Truax (29-3-2, 18 KOs) shocked the boxing world when he defeated then champion James DeGale (23-2-1, 14 KOs) last December in London to claim his world title. Now, Truax prepares for an equally difficult task as he is set to defend the title in a rematch against DeGale Saturday, April 7, live on Showtime from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
The Premier Boxing Champions event is headlined by Erislandy Lara (25-2-2, 14 KOs), the longest reigning world champion at 154-pounds, clashing with undefeated champion Jarrett Hurd (21-0-0, 15 KOs) in a highly anticipated 154-pound world title unification bout.
