Unbeaten Super Middleweight “Golden” Caleb Truax will vie for his first title on November 20 against former world champion Carl Daniels in the main event at the St. Paul Armory. Truax (13-0, 9 KOs), has been impressive thus far during his young career. The Osseo, MN native stopped five of his last six opponents, including a TKO over veteran Patrick Perez in July. Daniels (50-18-1, 32 KOs), of St. Louis, MO, is a former WBA junior middleweight champion and fought the likes of Bernard Hopkins, Julio Cesar Green, Julio Cesar, Laurent Boudouani and Chad Dawson. The 69 fight veteran is Truax’ most experienced foe to date, although Daniels has lost 14 of his last 15.
The Truax-Daniels matchup is scheduled for ten rounds, with the winner claiming the IBA Americas Super Middleweight championship.
In the co-featured bout of the evening, hard hitting Welterweight Muhammad “African Assassin” Kayongo of St. Paul returns following a one year absence to challenge James Todd of the United Kingdom. Kayongo (14-2, 10 KOs) and Todd (2-1-1, 1 KO) are scheduled to do battle over 10 rounds for the IBA Intercontinental Welterweight title.
Kayongo-Todd is expected to be far more competitive than it looks on paper, as the latter was an elite amateur, former member of the Calzaghe Training Camp and now part of the illustrious Talon Boxing Camp in Big Bear, CA.
