One Punch Boxing Promotions and Management will hold a press conference on Wednesday June 19th to announce the signing of Former Super Middleweight Champion  Jeff "LeftHook" Lacy (25-4, 17KOs).

Lacy made his professional debut against Jerald Lowe on February 2, 2001, knocking him out in the first round. He won his next eight fights by way of knockout and won the WBC Continental Americas super middleweight title against Anwar Oshana, by way of technical knockout in round two.

On July 15, 2003, he won the USBA and NABA super middleweight titles after beating Richard Grant by unanimous decision. He defended all three of his belts against Donnell Wiggins by TKO 8. He later fought Syd Vanderpool for the vacant IBF super middleweight title on October 2, 2004, winning by TKO in 8 rounds. He defended it against Omar Sheika, Rubin Williams, former champion Robin Reid, and Scott Pemberton.

Lacy fought a rematch with Vitali Tsypko on December 2, 2006, in Tampa, Florida, on the same card as Winky Wright's fight against Ike Quartey. This was the second time he had fought Tsypko, the first fight in 2004 which ended in a majority decision. Lacy won the fight by scores of 96-94, 96-94, 95-95. After the bout, it was revealed that Lacy had torn his rotator cuff and was injured throughout most of the fight. Lacy had surgery on the injury and did not fight for a year after the bout.

Lacy returned on December 8, 2007, to defeat Peter Manfredo Jr. by a unanimous decision. On July 23, 2008, beat Epifanio Mendoza by a majority decision. Lacy then fought former world middleweight champion Jermain Taylor on November 15, 2008, and lost the fight by unanimous decision,[1] making it only the second loss of his career.

On April 10, 2009, Jeff Lacy defeated Otis Griffin by a majority decision with the scores of 97-93, 96-94, 95-95.

On August 15, 2009, Lacy suffered a 10th round technical knockout to Roy Jones Jr..

Sixteen months after the loss to Jones Jr., Lacy returned to his hometown of St. Petersburg, Florida to face journeyman Dhafir Smith. Smith defeated Lacy by a unanimous decision.

Lacy turned 36 on May 12th.

[QUOTE=Mr.Smith]I actually feel bad for Jeff either he really loves boxing or can't do much with his life outside of it but being a punching bag shouldn't be an option.[/QUOTE] It's probably the latter, it is hard to earn such large sums as a civvy. On top of that there's the attention and ad...

A mummified Roy Jones beat Lacy while being 8 years older, looking like 20 years younger... Btw, what happened to Lacy Promotions... or was it Left Hook? idc..

[QUOTE=Sugar Adam Ali]LoL, i was going to say that but you beat me to it[/QUOTE] Maybe he's to blame for Roy going up to Cruiser and facing all those steroid munching Russians like Lebedev.

[QUOTE=PittyPat]How can an article about Lacy not mention the Calzaghe beatdown whilst mentioning all his other big-name opponents? I mean come on, that's probably what most people will always remember him for. :laff2:[/QUOTE] Precisely why I haven't posted here for some time.
