Caleb Truax, Roberto Garcia Ink With Al Haymon

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com first reported on Tuesday that powerful manager/adviser Al Haymon signed WBO bantamweight champion Tomoki Kameda. It appears Haymon is not done just yet for the week.

Since the start of the year, Haymon has been signing an army of fighters - and BoxingScene has been informed that two more top contenders have been added to his already enormous stable.

Middleweight contender Caleb Truax (23-1-2, 14KOs), and welterweight contender Roberto Garcia (35-3, 23KOs), have signed with Haymon.

Both fighters will co-headline ESPN's July 25th edition of Friday Night Fights from the UIC Pavillion in Chicago.

Garcia will face tough Colombian Breidis Prescott (27-5, 20KOs) and Truax takes on Derek Ennis (24-4-1, 13KOs).

Since lost a ten round decision to Jermain Taylor in 2012, in a fight where Taylor was down in the ninth, Truax put together a string of five wins. But then he fought veteran Ossie Duran to a lackluster ten round draw in January, and hopes to bounce back strong in his next fight.

Garcia has been on a big roll since lost a ten round decision to Antonio Margarito, at 154, in 2010. He beat a string of contenders along the way, like Antwone Smith, Victor Cayo and Norberto Gonzalez. Now at 147, Garcia told BoxingScene last week that he feels stronger and healthier than he did at 154.

In addition to his recent signings, Haymon works with Floyd Mayweather Jr., Adrien Broner, Amir Khan, Robert Guerrero, Shawn Porter, Deontay Wilder, Keith Thurman, Sakio Bika, Leo Santa Cruz, Omar Figueroa, Erislandy Lara, Austin Trout, Devon Alexander, Errol Spence, Gerald Washington, Chad Dawson and at least 30 others.
