Caleb Truax: Another Substitution

Word from Tony Grygelko at Seconds Out Promotions is that 11-3-1 James Cook has been replaced as Caleb Truax’s opponent for June 5 at Grand Casino Hinckley.

The new opponent is Durrell Richardson, a southpaw from the boxing hotbed of Youngstown, Ohio.  Richardson sports a record of 11-2 with 4 knockouts.  He’s short on notable wins, but it’s worth mentioning that he owns a majority decision win against Scott Ball from two years ago and is coming off a unanimous decision win against previously unbeaten (6-0-2 with 5 kayos) Davis Thomas.  Durrell’s two losses were consecutive, against Deandre Latimore (now 19-2) and Jesus Gonzales (now 24-1).  Grygelko says that the matchup is designed to showcase Truax’s prowess against southpaws with an eye toward proving his credentials for a match with recently coronated state middleweight champ Andy Kolle.

Says Truax of his new opponent, “I hear this guy is a pretty damn good, slick boxer.  He went the distance with a guy who’s 23-1 and  with Deandre Lattimore.  So I’m looking forward to showing everybody what I’ve got!”
