On Saturday October 1 at the Rising Star Casino in Rising Sun, Indiana, Ravea Springs (28-3, 22 KOs) will take on Daniel Judah (23-8-3, 10 KOs) for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ World Cruiserweight title on a show promoted by former heavyweight contender Nate Tubbs, brother of former Heavyweight Champ Tony Tubbs.

 
 

The show will also feature former contender Anthony Hanshaw, undefeated prospect Wilkins Santiago, and female crowd-pleaser Melissa St. Vil, among others.   

Ravea Springs turned pro in 1993 after a successful amateur career that included winning the National Golden Gloves tournament. Considered a real blue chip prospect, he shockingly lost his professional debut, but went on to win his next nineteen fights, including a streak of sixteen straight knockouts.

In 1996 he suffered another setback against former NABF and IBC title challenger Kenny Snow, before coming back with four victories to line up a fight against former IBF Light Heavyweight World Champion William Guthrie in 2002. Springs stopped Guthrie in eleven rounds, and won the WBO NABO Cruiserweight title in the process.

A nice victory over undefeated future IBF World Cruiserweight Champion Kelvin “Concrete” Davis followed, and paved the way for a WBC World title challenge against WBC ruler Wayne Braithwaite in 2003. Springs lost, and is now salivating at the chance of finally capturing a world title against Judah.

Older brother of former Light Welter and Welterweight World Champion Zab, former New York State and IBF International Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Judah will get his first shot at a world title on October 1. After some less than stellar performances at 175 Lbs. recently, it is hoped that fighting as a full-fledged Cruiserweight will bring Judah back to the high level he has proved he can compete at.   

With his losses coming against high profile world class fighters such as Eric Harding, Yusaf Mack, Ismail Sillakh, Elvir Muriqi and future Hall-Of-Famer Glenn Johnson, Judah also holds a draw with Johnson, as well as one against the late Julian Letterlough, and a good victory over Jaffa Ballogou in 2008.

Ravea Springs will present another big challenge for the Brooklyn fighter.
