Kauffman Returns Against Arron Lyson at Valley Forge

By Tim Kudgis

On August 23rd, "The War at the Forge III" at the Valley Forge Casino & Resort in Valley Forge, PA returns in front of a WORLDWIDE audience LIVE on GFL.tv!  Bringing you another exciting night of full fledged BOXING action! 

In the Main Event of the evening, hellacious hitting heavyweight Travis Kauffman (24-1) will face off with rugged journeyman Arron Lyons (12-12-1).

Kauffman will look to continue his 6 fight winning streak since losing a highly controversial fight to Tony Grano in 2009. The fight against Grano was an exciting fight with back and forth action but the ending was plagued with controversy.  Grano was dropped and injured but resorted to using illegal tactics to stay in the fight.  Then some ringside observers thought Grano appeared to have thrown Kauffman to the ground illegally but the ref counted out Kauffman resulting in a KO loss.

Lyons will do anything in his power not to allow Kauffman to continue his winning streak.  Lyons is on a 3 fight skid, but they were to previously undefeated Kelvin Price (12-0), WBA #2 Luis Ortiz (12-0), and fringe contender Damian Willis (29-2-1).  He is also no stranger to upsetting his opponents - stopping then undefeated Joey Abell (9-0) in the 1st round of their 1st encounter as well as stopping Lenroy Thomas (16-1-1) in the 4th round of their showdown.  Lyons also held undefeated Wilmer Vasquez (9-0-2) to a draw.

In rhe co-main event Frank Santos De Alba (8-1-2) will square off with Miguel Rodriguez in a 6 round bout.  De Alba was originally slated to face the extremely tough Osnel Charles, but Charles was forced to pull out.  De Alba refused to let this setback get in the way of his chance to shine in front of his fans.

Also on the card, some of PA's top prospects will see action.  Miguel Cartagena (7-0) will face Eduardo Melendez (4-13) in a 4 round bantamweight showdown.  Highly touted lightweight prospect Damon Allen (2-0) will take on the very tough Samuel Omar Quinones Jr (2-1) in a 4 round attraction.  Nazim Richardson's protege Khalib Whitmore (1-0) will try to duplicate his pro debut when he faces Richard McCombs (1-4). Finally cruiserwight journeyman Kamarah Pasely (6-6) will see action against an opponent To Be Announced. <br><br/>
