Heavyweight contender Travis Kauffman, is set for a home town showdown, against Manuel Quezado, for the vacant World Boxing Union Inter-Continental Heavyweight crown, on the Marshall Kauffman Kings Boxing promoted GET READING TO RUMBLE mega event at the Santander Arena, Reading, PA, on Saturday 30th November 2013.
Since turning pro in 2006 Travis has racked up an enviable twenty six wins, nineteen by stoppage finish, and just the single loss, against Tony Grano in September 09.
Even though this isnt his first tilt at a Championship - having secured the WBF Inter-Continental title in May 2010, with a sensational second round stoppage of Youngstown, Ohios Chris Koval - Travis is so determined to secure the coveted WBU crown, that for the first time in his career he has recruited a new member to his training team, former World Cruiserweight Champion Al Cole.
Travis clearly feels that the introduction of the former World Champ is the ace up his sleeve, that will ensure his success on November 30th, as he made clear when he spoke earlier.
I dont underestimate him at all, he may not have boxed for a while but hes been fighting in MMA, so he is fight ready.
Hes had more championship experience than me, but I have a lot of experience in the amateurs and Ive had a lot of professional experience as well.
Ive been extremely busy, this is my fourth fight in less than a year, Ive dedicated myself in camp and therell be a new Travis Kauffman on the 30th, which I dont think anybody has ever seen.
Ive been sparring Tomasz Adamek, hes been helping me for November 30th and I helped him for his November 16th fight.
I dont think you can get better sparring than Ive had for this fight, Ive also sparred Brian Jennings and well be brought him back into the camp, Ive also been sparring Monte Barrett, so you can see Ive been sparring World class fighters.
To prepare me for my fight, besides my father Marshall Kauffman, Al Cole a former Cruiserweight Champ of the World, hes helping train me.
I dont like to have a whole bunch of people around me, Im not someone who has an entourage of trainers and the like.
This is the first time Ive worked with Al Cole, sometimes hes a little frustrated when were learning something new, but hes aching for me to win the Heavyweight title, he held the Cruiserweight title for six years and was unbeaten, but he never won the Heavyweight title
Im really up for it, Im training really hard, Im really enjoying my boxing and I think everythings going in the right direction.
I feel I want it more than he wants it, Im really enjoying my boxing and I will be the WBU Champion on November 30th.
