Caleb Truax Speaks Up

Caleb Truax has confirmed what many had suspected, that his upcoming fight at the Tachi Palace in Lemoore, CA is the result of a concerted effort to get him out-of-state fights.  In his own words, “Tony G and my manager Ron Lyke have been working to get me out of state and this opportunity presented itself on a Goosen-Tutor card so we jumped at it! It’ll be a great way to get more exposure and hopefully open up some eyes on the national level. My opponent has a winning record and is supposed to be a decent boxer who’s never been KO’ed, so it will be a good win for me.”  The Fistic Mystic can’t help but respect that kind of confidence.  He’s right about his opponent, by the way – Thomas Rittenbaugh carries a record of 3 wins, 1 loss, and 2 draws – and he has not been stopped as a pro.

Asked whether there’s anyone in Minnesota he would like to face, Truax showed some restraint: “Calling people out really ain’t my style, so right now I’m just trying to keep learning and gaining experience and with a little more I will be ready to fight any middleweight around.”  Given his history of fighting above 160 pounds, we suspect that Golden is including super middles in that statement

If Truax starts making his fights out of state he’ll break a lot of hearts, but he’ll also make us proud.  He’s a genuine talent who could make a big splash if he gets the right opportunity.
