Fight Night Switch: Vladimir Hernandez Replaces Caleb Truax For Angulo Bout

Former world champion Caleb “Golden” Truax will no longer fight Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo in the IBF Super Middleweight Title Eliminator match on August 29.

As stated in a press release from Premier Boxing Champions, Truax was “forced to withdraw due to effects of dehydration.” Mexico’s Vladimir Hernandez will instead step in to face off against Angulo in the highly-anticipated bout.

In regards to Truax, TGB Promotions President Tim Brown says, “We wish Caleb the best and hope to see him back in the ring soon, but it is fortunate that we have backups in place because of COVID-19. Under normal circumstances you wouldn’t have a backup on standby. But because of COVID-19, we have someone who has been training, has been tested and is in the bubble and ready to go.”

Angulo vs. Hernandez is the co-main event of FOX PBC Fight Night on Saturday, August 29. The broadcast, beginning at 8 p.m. ET, will be headlined by WBA Super Welterweight Champion Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara and Greg Vendetti. A special bonus feature match between 2016 Venezuelan Olympian Luis Arcon and unbeaten super lightweight Abram Martinez is also slated to occur.

Fans can watch the Fight Night broadcast live on FOX or via livestream on the FOX Sports app.
