Undefeated featherweight Jason Litzau to headline card

BLOOMFIELD, NJ – Main Events returns to North Bergen’s Schuetzen Park for “Back to the Future III”, the third in a series of planned boxing events in north Jersey, it was announced today by Main Events CEO Kathy Duva. The main event features a 10 round featherweight contest between undefeated WBA #13 ranked featherweight Jason Litzau (17-0, 15 KO’s) and awkward Nepalese southpaw Debind Thapa.

Tickets, priced at $150 (VIP), $50, and $25, can be purchased by calling Main Events at (973) 893-9100. The $150 VIP ticket entitles the owner to a dinner, drinks, and a “Meet and Greet” with boxing celebrities in attendance.

Litzau (17-0, 15 KO’s) is ranked #13 by the WBA. In his last bout on Jan 28, 2006, the 22-year-old St. Paul, MN impressively stopped former world title challenger Carlos Contreras on the Arturo Gatti-Thomas Damgaard undercard (TKO 6). Contreras had gone the distance with world champions Johnny Tapia and Lehlo Ledwaba, and with world title challengers Art Simonyan and Adan Vargas. Litzau has stopped 10 opponents n the first round.

“I chose Thapa as an opponent because he is as unorthodox as he is,” says Litzau. “In order to be a world champion and be one of the sport’s elite fighters you have to beat all styles. This is an excellent learning experience for me”

Thapa (20-5-1, 11 KO’s) once challenged for the NABF super flyweight and NABF super bantamweight titles.

The following fighters will also appear on the May 11 card:

Allen Litzau (10-1, 6 KO’s) has won his last nine bouts, five by knockout. The 24-year-old St. Paul, MN native competes at featherweight.

Wayne Johnsen (11-1, 6 KO’s) is a 28-year-old light heavyweight from Lyndhurst, NJ. In his last bout on March 10, 2006, Johnsen stopped Clifton Robertson in five rounds at Schuetzen Park (TKO 5).

Alex Perez (4-0, 3 KO's) is a 23-year-old junior middleweight from Newark, NJ who has stopped three of his four opponents. He is a former NJ Golden Gloves Champion.

Henry Crawford (9-0-1 3 KO’s) is an undefeated 25-year-old welterweight from Paterson, NJ who captured the most impressive win of his career on Nov 30, 2005, at Schuetzen Park when he destroyed Tony Grygelko in one round (TKO 1).

Jerson Ravelo (15-1, 10 KO’s) represented the 2000 Dominican Republic Olympic Boxing Team. The 28-year-old light heavyweight lives in Newark, NJ. He has won his last two bouts, and has stopped six opponents in the first round.
