Spadafora Is Back! Undefeated Former World Champion Is Back In Training

ERIE, PA (September 29, 2006) – Former IBF lightweight champion PAUL SPADAFORA has returned to the gym as he begins his quest to win another world title. Known as “The Pittsburgh Kid,” the undefeated Spadafora, (38-0-1, 15 KOs), began sparring this week.

“Considering the two year layoff, Paul has looked spectacular in the gym,” said Spadafora’s promoter Michael Acri. “I know there has been a lot of speculation that Paul will be returning to the ring in October on the Mike Tyson card but that is not accurate. The truth is we have not established a timetable for Paul’s return to the ring yet. The whole team is in complete agreement that we will let Paul’s progress in the gym dictate when he fights next. We expect Paul to be back in the ring in November.”

Spadafora captured the vacant IBF title in 1999, upsetting the heavily-favored Israel Cardona, winning a lopsided decision. He successfully defended his world championship belt eight times during his four-year reign before vacating it to move up to the junior welterweight division.
