Litzau returns to action Saturday

Former world title challenger and The Boxing Tribune’s eighth-ranked super featherweight Jason Litzau (28-3, 21 KOs) returns to the ring this Saturday for the first time since his first round blowout loss to Adrien Broner last June. Litzau will be taking on battered Colorado-based journeyman Corey Alarcon (17-18-1, 4 KOs) at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Minneapolis.

Prior to the Broner loss, “The American Boy” Litzau was riding a career high with back to back upset wins over Rocky Juarez and Celestino Caballero. The one-sided loss, however, stopped Litzau’s momentum and led to a stifling year of inactivity.

Alarcon is, well, a 17-18-1 fighter and not expected to offer much resistance. The 34-year-old journeyman is actually the third opponent contracted to fight Litazau, with both Leon Bobo (18-9-1, 2 KOs) and Tyrone Harris (24-9, 16 KOs) pulling through for undisclosed reasons.
