Travis Kauffman Heads Feb 27 Allentown Fight Card

Heavyweight Travis Kauffman heads a fight card February 27 at the Rodeway Inn in Allentown. This should be interesting as the 18-1 son of Reading trainer Marshall Kauffman sustained his first setback against Tony Grano last year. That explains the "1." Kauffman has some flash, has good size, moves wel, and exhibits sharp punching. The issue with comeback fights, however, is how well a guy can get back from a loss, how well they can put the psychological damage behind them.

The fight card also features Jason Cintron, brother to Kermit "the Killer" Cintron. It gets a double plus because it's got an amateur boxoff as an added attraction. Amateur boxing programs are very important, and from personal experience, Travis Kauffman spares no efforts in bringing his young amateur teams to maturity.
