DeGuardia Adds Some Heat!
02.10.06 - Continuing to add to their ever-growing stable of world champions, top contenders and promising prospects, Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing proudly announces the signing of former NABF and NABA Junior Welterweight Champion and 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games Bronze Medalist Terrance “The Heat” Cauthen (31-3, 8 KOs) to a promotional agreement.

“I’m honored they would pick me to be in the same stable as one of the best light heavyweights in the world, Antonio Tarver,” said an enthusiastic Cauthen about the deal. “They moved him well and hopefully with his promoter, I can take that same trail.”
Campaigning in the welterweight and junior middleweight divisions, the slick southpaw from Trenton, New Jersey, says that without struggling to make weight and with a whole new support team behind him, it will allow him to become the fighter he always knew he could.
Cauthen’s resurgence will continue on October 11 when he challenges for New York veteran Raul Frank’s USBA Light Middleweight title in the 12-round co-main event of a card at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, New York.
“When I was approached by Team Cauthen, I was naturally interested, as Terrence certainly has the pedigree to become champion,” explains Star boxing President Joe DeGuardia when asked about the signing. “Terrance reminds me of Winky Wright, as he has a smooth and relaxed poise that makes him a real threat against anyone in the ring. Real professors in the game appreciate such ability. With the right opportunities, Terrance will be able to show the world what he’s capable of. With Star Boxing backing him and his new managerial team lending their tremendous support, the world should get ready for an all-new ‘Heat’ in the junior middleweight division.”
