Travis Kauffman Not Looking Past Barnett
READING, PA (NOVEMBER 29, 2013)–When it was announced that Heavyweight Manuel Quezada would not be able to fight WBA number-10 ranked Heavyweight Travis Kauffman this Saturday night at the Santander Arena, calls were made to almost every credible Heavyweight that was available.
The only guy to step up to the plate was Jason Barnett of Clearwater, Florida.
The bout is for the WBU Intercontinental championship.
Despite having a .500 record of 14-14, Kauffman and his team know that Barnett is dangerous for a couple of very legitimate reasons.
Barnett is more than capable as he has knockout wins over John Poore (21-3) and Eric Leander (8-0). Barnett is also a confident as he has won two in a row with wins over Willie Chisolm and Terrance Marbra (6-2).
“We called so many people and Barnett took the fight like he knew something”, said Kauffman’s father Marshall Kauffman.
“Travis is so close to being where he wants to be and is so close to a major fight. Barnett is coming in here to become a somebody and Travis needs to be as focused as he ever as to win this fight.”
The press conference will take place at 5pm today at the Crowne Plaza and that will be followed by the official weigh-in.
In a six round Jr. Lightweight bout, Frankie De Alba (9-1-2, 3 KO’s) of Reading, PA takes on Osnel Charles (9-7-1, 1 KO) of Atlantic City, NJ
In a six round Welterweight bout, Rafael Montalvo (3-4, 3 KO’s) of St. Claire, PA battles Evencii Dixon (2-3, 1 KO) of Lancaster, PA.
In four round bouts:
Randy Easton (0-2-1) of Williamsport, PA takes on pro debuting William Monroe (0-1) of Forestville, MD in a Heavyweight bout.
Travis Thompson (4-11-2, 3 KO’s) of Pottstown, PA will fight Emil Rodriguez (0-3) of Allentown, PA in a Lightweight bout.
Khalib “Big Foot” Whitmore (3-0, 2 KO’s) of Philadelphia, PA squares off with Mark Baltimore (1-2, 1 KO) of Raleigh, NC in a Lightweight bout.
