Travis Kauffman Faces Scott Alexander On June 10


Veteran heavyweight Travis Kauffman will take on Scott Alexander in a 10-round bout that features three heavyweight showdowns on Sunday, June 10 from Pioneer Event Center in Lancaster, California.

 

The televised bout starts at :30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT and will see former world title challenger Gerald "El Gallo Negro" Washington take on once-beaten Wes Nofire in a 10-round attraction plus 2012 U.S. Olympian Michael Hunterchallenging Iago Kiladze in a 10-round fight. Also featured on the card is super welterweight prospect Joey Spencer (2-0, 2 KOs) in a four-round special attraction.

 

"Travis Kauffman doesn’t back down from anyone and there’s no doubt he’ll be looking to make a statement against Scott Alexander on Sunday, June 10,’’ said Tom Brown, President of TGB Promotions. "It’s an interesting time in the heavyweight division and all the winners on this card will figure into the picture in a prominent way in the future.’’

 

Kauffman (31-2, 23 KOs) will look to boost his own contender credentials with a win after most recently dropping a close majority decision to Amir Mansour last March in Kauffman’s hometown of Reading, Pennsylvania. Kauffman had entered that bout with a 14 fight unbeaten streak, including dropping Chris Arreola in a fight that resulted in a no contest and a knockout of former title challenger Epifanio Mendoza.

 

"I am excited to get back in the ring," said Kauffman. "I have not been in the ring in a year and a half and I can’t wait to go in there and show that I still have a lot left. I am not going in there to win by decision. I am going in there looking to knock him out, because I am tired of leaving it up to the judges."

 

The 29-year-old Alexander (14-2-2, 8 KOs) has put together two straight victories since losing to LaRon Mitchell by unanimous decision in 2016. Fighting out of Los Angeles, Alexander is noted for his fast hands, and scored a TKO victory over Pedro Julio Rodriguez in his last fight on March 3.

 

"I’ve been working hard preparing for a fight at the end of June so I jumped at this opportunity,’’ Alexander said. "I’m always ready to step into the ring and take on any and all challenges. I’m ready to make my mark. My time is now!’’
