Rare Boxing Event Held In Utah

Posted by

34 years has passed since a world boxing champion event was held in Utah. The record was broken on Saturday night at South Towne Expo Center.

A Utah native, Chris “Kid Kayo” Fernandez, wore his Native American headdress, boxing gloves and a shiny red jacket when he entered the ring to fight with Minnesota’s Allen Litzau. Utah’s first World Boxing Champion, Gene Fullmer, enjoyed watching the match with Jay Fullmer, his brother.

Fernandez predicted he will win the match in 3 rounds. Litzau fought fiercely up to the 6th round until his corner conceded. This allowed Fernandez to defend his status as World champion.
