Cedric Kushner Promotions brings Everlast series to Caesar's Palace Friday, July 20.
LAS VEGAS, Nev.-Attila "The Hun" Levin of Sweden, one of the most highly regarded young heavyweights in the world, meets hard-hitting Ray Austin of Cleveland in one of two 10-round heavyweight co-main events Friday, July 20, at Caesars Palace on the "Everlast Heavyweight Explosion" boxing series presented by Cedric Kushner Promotions.
This is the first fight card in the new 5,000-seat Caesars Palace Pavilion.
ZAB "SUPER" JUDAH
(INSIDE BOXING) The 136-140 pound weight division (junior welterweight) currently has two champions. The WBA/WBC version, Kostya Tszyu (26-1-1, 22 KO's) and the IBF version, Zab Judah (26-0-1, 20 KO's) are on a collision course for a unification bout that should occur later this year.
On June 23rd SHOWTIME will broadcast a fight card that will show the two champions battle the respective number one rated contenders their organizations have to offer.
Kostya Tszyu will entertain Oktay Urkal (28-0, 9 KO's) while Zab Judah will handle Allan Vester (18-0-1, 3 KO's) in what should clear the way for the undefeated Judah to totally destroy Kostya Tszyu.
23 year old Zab "Super" Judah is currently the most spectacular and entertaining boxer in any weight division, excluding Roy Jones, Jr. He has all the skills of a champion with the "killer instinct" his most formidable weapon.

They call him "Panchito" but when he steps into the ring there is nothing petite about him. Except maybe his age, he recently turned eighteen. I'll refer to Francisco Bojado as SuperMex plain and simple.
Lee Trevino earned the name SuperMex in the sport of Golf, a sport not common place to Mexicans. He dominated the sport in late sixties and seventies. Trevino retired from the pro tour in 1985, his 32 tour victories placed him second on the total career earnings list, at the time of his retirement. Trevino earned his money by striking a little white ball.
The nineteen hundreds are gone and the new millennium has started as has Francisco Bojado.
