Pound4Pound Wear the maker of men and women’s sports apparel is happy to announce a partnership with Tyson “Prince of Hali” Cave.
Tyson Cave is coming off a big win against the highly touted Sebastian Gauthier, which has now put in him in line to face hard hitting Columbian, Oscar Escandon. The fight will take place Thursday night, Decemeber 11 live on ESPN2 from Temecula, California. The thirteen fight card is stacked with great talent and features; Austin Trout, Antonio Tarver; Edwin Rodrigquez, Sergio Mora, Marcus Browne, Terrell Gausha, Gerald Washington, Rico Ramos and several other high profile names. However, there is no question the main event tops them all, as Tyson Cave will be fighting for the WBA BANTAMWEIGHT WORLD TITLE.
Cave comes into the fight sporting a very impressive 24-2 (8Ko) record and hails from Halifax, Canada which he proudly represents. Escandons record is equally impressive at 23-1 (16Ko’s) and fights out of Ibague, Columbia. Escandon eliminated Cave from the 2004 Olympic trials, a fight Cave and many ringside observers believe he won. The Columbian went on to fight in Athens, however did not medal.
This is a fight the fans want to see and and no doubt the biggest fight of both participants career. The winner of this fight will go down in history as world champion which will lead to even bigger fights, along with bigger paydays. Tyson Cave loves his hometown of Halifax, Canada thus sporting the name “Prince of Hali”. There is no bigger opportunity for Tyson to put Halifax back on the map in terms of boxing history. Halifax, Canada is not known as a boxing hot spot, however it did produce George “Little Chocolate” Dixon who stood at just 5’3 and weighed 87 pounds. Dixon in 1888 became the first African American to win a world title in any weight class. Other notable fighters from Halifax Canada include Kirk Johnson who lost in his two world title fights to John Ruiz and Vitali Klitschko, as well as Sam Langford who many believe was one of the best heavyweights in boxing history to never win a world title. Langford beat Joe Gans and went 15 rounds with Jack Johnson while he weighed just 71 kg to Johnsons 84 kg.
Tune in Dec 11 to see an amazing night of boxing where the stakes are high, history remains in the balance and the book will soon be written
Pound4Pound Wear will be represented in Tyson’s corner and wishes him the best of luck in his world title bout!
