HAMILTON, NEW JERSEY, January 3, 2011 — On Saturday night January 22nd, 2011 boxing returns to the beautiful Hamilton Manor in Hamilton, New Jersey as Nedal Abuhumoud and Nedal Boxing presents a great night of boxing featuring some top prospects and entertaining fights.

In the main event, Former U.S. Olympian Terrance “The Heat” Cauthen will take on Phillip McCants in a Welterweight bout scheduled for eight rounds.

Cauthen of nearby Trenton, New Jersey has record of 35-7 with nine knockouts.

Cauthen represented the United Sates in the 1996 Olympics which were held in Atlanta.

He turned pro in December of that year and went on to win the first fifteen bouts of his career.  Cauthen suffered his first professional defeat when he was stopped by Teddy Reid in an effort to win the NABA Super Lightweight title. 

After that loss, Cauthen went on a nice run of eleven straight wins and picked up two titles in the process.

He won the Interim NABF Jr. Welterweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Franco Ogentho (15-2).  Cauthen defended the three times with decision wins over Roberto Ortega (18-7-1); Ricky Quiles (33-5-3) and Jermaine Marks (9-1-2).  In the fight against Quiles he captured the NABA Super Lightweight title.

Cauthen lost two in a row which included going the distance with former world champion Paul Williams (25-0) before winning the IBU Jr. Middleweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Nurhan Suleyman (16-3).  He followed that up by winning the USBA Jr. Middleweight title with a tenth round stoppage over former Olympian Dane Craig.

That fight set up a shot with Sechew Powell in an IBF Elimination bout.

Unfortunately for Cauthem he was stopped in four rounds in what turned up to be a shootout as both guys landed bombs in the fight.

Cauthen has gone 3-3 in his last fights with impressive wins over Alexis Camacho (16-0); Isam Khalil (15-1-2) and Cleotis Pandarvis (10-2-2).  In his last bout, Cauthen dropped a twelve round unanimous decision to John O’Donnell (23-1) this past September 10th in England in a bout that was televised on SHO BOX.

McCants has a record of 8-1-1 with three knockouts and has won five straight fights that spans six years.

McCants is coming off a four round unanimous decision over Tyson Schwieger on September 11, 2009 in Philadelphia.

In a six round co-feature, Charles Hayward of Philadelphia will battle Billy Salser of Mansfield, Ohio in a Light Heavyweight bout.

Hayward, 5-2 with one knockout, has won four in a row which includes decision wins over undefeated Patrick Budd (2-0) and in his last bout; Hayward moved up to six rounds by scoring a unanimous decision over Mazur Ali (6-6) on July 2nd in Vineland, New Jersey.

Salser, 3-1 with two knockouts, won his first three bouts which included a third round knockout iver undefeated Adam Harrison (1-0).  Salser then took two and a half years off and came back to drop a four round unanimous decision to Joe Njau last March 26th at the Hamilton Manor.

Other bouts scheduled for the card includes:

Derrick Webster (5-0, 4 KO’s) of Glassboro, New Jersey will take on William Chouloute (1-1, 1 KO) of Chicago in a four round Middleweight bout.

In a four round Super Middleweight fight, Alando Swain (1-1) of Trenton, NJ takes on Horatio Pittman (1-8, 1 KO) of Philadelphia.
