Toughest test ahead for Osseo middleweight Caleb Truax


With St. Paul's Matt Vanda vanquished, Osseo middleweight Caleb Truax now turns to a power-punching fighter from the Windy City.

Truax takes on Don "Da Bomb" George in a 10-round bout Friday night from the Minneapolis Convention Center. It's the co-main event on ESPN's Friday Night Fights series.

Truax, with a record of 21-1-1 and 12 knockouts, is coming off a Minnesota grudge match win over Vanda in January.

George (24-3-2, 21 KOs) is considered the favorite, but might be at a disadvantage in boxing a hometown favorite on a national stage.

After a sparring session last month, Truax says he's hoping a win Friday night will translate into more national TV time.

As for Truax' last bout with Vanda, here it is, in its entirety:
