Caleb Truax to Return on Sept. 21, Opponent TBD

by David P. Greisman

Minnesota middleweight Caleb Truax will follow up his recent win over Donovan George with a Sept. 21 fight at the Minneapolis Convention Center, according to a post on the boxer’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

“The USBA Middleweight title will be at stake and my opponent will be finalized this week!” he wrote. “Stay tuned!”

The USBA’s belt at that weight class is vacant. The organization’s Top 15 reads: Curtis Stevens, Matvey Korobov, J’Leon Love, Andy Lee, Danny Jacobs, Caleb Truax, Fernando Guerrero, Abraham Han, Cerrosso Fort, Joe Greene, Derrick Findley, Elco Garcia, Sergio Mora, Ossie Duran, George Tahdooahnippah.

Truax, 29, is coming off a sixth-round technical knockout of Donovan George on the undercard to the June 21 episode of ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights.”

The win brought his record to 22-1-1 with 13 knockouts. The lone loss came against Jermain Taylor in April 2012, a unanimous decision defeat that saw Truax put Taylor on the canvas in the ninth round.
