WBA #13 ranked heavyweight Travis Kauffman (24-1, 18 KOs) will take Arron Lyons (12-12-1, 9 KOs) in an eight round stay busy bout on August 23 at the Valley Forge Casino Resort in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. The show which is promoted by Kings Boxing will be headlined by a ten round Pennsylvania lightweight title bout between undefeated champion Naim Nelson (10-0, 1 KO) defending against Ryan Belasco (18-5-3, 3 KOs).
“I was called to fight Tomasz Adamek but they took Dominick Guinn,” stated Kauffman. “Adamek is a hell of a fighter but I feel I can beat him. I was offered a fight with undefeated WBA #2 ranked Luis Ortiz but it was only four weeks’ notice for very short money. This is a business and the risk outweighed the reward. I am taking this one day at a time, I have had injury problems such as three hand surgeries, and ankle and shoulder problems but now I am completely healthy and ready to look to big things in my future.”

Frankie De Alba (8-1-2, 3 KOs) will take on an opponent to be named in a six round super featherweight bout.
