Vanda Reportedly Making a Move

Matt Vanda, the most famous and commercially successful prizefighter in Minnesota today, reportedly is set to cut his ties with trainer Ron Lyke and ACR Gym.  Vanda is expected to move across town to Johnny Johnson’s Rice Street Gym in Saint Paul.  Further, Vanda (42-11 with 22 kayos) is said to be eyeing a match with ACR-trained prospect Caleb Truax for the fall.  A match between veteran Vanda and the unbeaten Truax (15-0-1 with 9 kayos) seemed unlikely as long as both middleweights were training under the same roof at ACR.

The report has yet to be confirmed by Vanda or anyone associated with ACR Gym, but an independent source close to the situation tells me that the report is “one hundred percent true.”
