fighters have multiple rivalries on the line. The two will find out not only which city has the better fighter, but also which fighter is the better southpaw. The Robinson-Cauthen bout tops a seven-bout card which begins at 7.30 pm. in the 1,000-seat venue at the Newtown Athletic Club’s Sports and Events Center.
Robinson (left) and Cauthen know each other and have sparred in the past. Both fighters are kind- hearted, fun-loving guys, until they enter the ring.
Robinson (13-2, 5 K0s) is less experienced than Cauthen (36-7, 9 K0s), but will not underestimate him. Robinson has faced prospects Brad Solomon, of Lafayette, LA, and Shawn Porter, of Akron, OH. both still undefeated, as well as Darnell Jiles,Jr., of Rochester, NY. He has also boxed journeymen such as Harrison Cuello, of The Bronx, NY, and, in his most recent bout Jan. 21, Doel Carrasquillo, of Lancaster, PA.
Though Robinson and Cauthen have no common foes, Robinson did earn a unanimous decision over Carrasquillo, who knocked out Shamone Alvarez, of Atlantic City, NJ, the same fighter Cauthen lost a majority decision to in July of 2008.
Cauthen (right) will be the hometown fighter since Newtown, PA, is close to his backyard and in a facility where he once worked. Even though Cauthen is from Trenton, NJ, he is well-known in Philadelphia, having fought there as an amateur and as a pro.
Cauthen has grown since boing in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. In 44 pro fights, he has boxed Paul Williams of Aiken, SC, Alexis Camacho, of Austin, TX, and Sechew Powell,of Brooklyn, NY.
This fight represents a must-win for each man in order to regain the spotlight.
On the undercard: welterweight DeCarlo Perez, of Atlantic City, NJ; and Philadelphians Naim Nelson, junior welterweight; Amir Shabazz, light-heavyweight; Kareem Cooley, lightweight; and junior middleweight Jimmy Lowry.
