New opponent for Litzau

By Jesse Kelley

Jason Litzau will have another opponent in front of him on Saturday night at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis, MN. 25 year old Tennessee native Ira Terry (24-8, 14 KO’s) is said to be stepping in after the fallout of Litzau’s latest replacement opponent Corey Alarcon. Litzau and his team were told last night that Alarcon had broken his foot while running on a treadmill. The following 24 hours were then a nightmare according to Litzau’s trainer Bob Van Syckle as another opponent was being sought. It appeared that 23 year old southpaw Guillermo Sanchez (13-5-1, 5 KO’s) of Buffalo, NY was going to step in to replace Alarcon. But Sanchez was unable to free himself up from his job to make the trip to Minnesota. After more opponent searching it now appears that Terry will be the man opposite Litzau on Saturday night as the MN boxing commission has given the greenlight for Terry to step in.

Fightnews reported on Tuesday that both Leon Bobo and Tyrone Harris were first to fall through before Alarcon.
Despite the late scratches, Litzau has remained focused and says he is ready for Terry. “I don’t care who I fight” said Litzau. “I am just happy to be facing a good fighter that has a decent record like Ira Terry on such short notice. Terry is a better fighter then the last guy and he just fought in April so I know he will be ready.”
