The southpaw Cauthen feels that he is best at the 147 lb. limit and is ready to make a push towards a world title in the extremely exciting division. The 1996 US Olympic Bronze Medalist, feels that this is not only a great opportunity get back to his winning ways, but also a chance to once again showcase he is still one of the top fighters in the world, particularly in the welterweight division.

This is a true crossroads battle as you have two fighters who are both looking to prove that they belong among the elite in the hot Welterweight division.
