  JASON LITZAU TO BE FEATURED ON ESPN CLASSICS ON MARCH 21
July 2005 bout against John Nolasco selected for the “Classic Boxing” program on ESPN Classics

BLOOMFIELD, NJ (March 20, 2006) – On Tuesday, March 21 at 8:00 pm ET, undefeated featherweight Jason Litzau’s July 15, 2005 split-decision victory over John Nolasco will be featured on ESPN Classics “Classic Boxing” series, it was announced today by Main Events CEO Kathy Duva. The 10-round bout, which was originally broadcast on ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights” program, was selected by ESPN.com as one of 12 “Unforgettable Bouts” from 2005.

Litzau (17-0, 15 KO’s) is a 22-year-old native of St. Paul, MN. In his last bout on Jan 28, 2006—on the undercard of Arturo Gatti-Thomas Damgaard—Litzau dismantled two-time world title challenger Carlos Contreras to earn a sixth round stoppage (TKO 6). Among those at ringside impressed by Litzau’s performance was legendary champion Pernell Whitaker, who described Litzau as “sharp”.

"I am honored that ESPN would select my fight against Nolasco as an ‘instant’ classic", said Litzau. He joked, "I am only 22 years old and already I am a classic.

“But seriously, there will be a lot more classic fights before my career is over. I just hope that the ESPN2 Friday night fight decision-makers give me another chance to fight on their show before I get too old," Litzau added with a smile. "I can't wait to fight on TV again!"
