NEW YORK – One day before Israel Vazquez and Rafael Marquez renew their rivalry on Showtime Championship Boxing, America’s No. 1 Fight Network hits you with one of the most anticipated ShoBox fight cards of the new year. On Friday, February 29, IBF featherweight champion and ShoBox alum Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (21-1-1, 14 KOs) will defend his title against Jason “The American Boy” Litzau (23-1, 19 KOs) on Friday, Feb. 29, live on Showtime (Shobox: The New Generation, 11:00 p.m. ET/PT delayed on the west coast).
The Showtime event is being promoted by Goossen Tutor Promotions, LLC and will originate from the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, Calif. Also fighting on the televised card, young rivals TJ “Top Dog” Wilson (12-1, 8 KOs) of Miami, Fla. and Travis “Freight Train” Walker (26-1-1, 20 KOs) of Houston, Texas will meet in a 10-round heavyweight rematch.
“I can’t wait to put it all on the line again,” said Guerrero, who is coming off an impressive 56 second KO victory against Martin Honorio on Nov. 3, 2007 in a Showtime televised fight. “I’m on a mission right now. Everyone has been talking about this fight for a while, and now its time to make it happen.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – It was over almost before it started.
In a stunning upset, T.J. Wilson captured the International Boxing Association (IBA) Continental Americas heavyweight title with an unpopular, controversial 15-second, first-round knockout over previously undefeated Travis Walker Friday in the main event on ShoBox: The New Generation.
The amazing run of streaking, vastly improved Jesus “Chuy” Rodriguez continued in the co-feature when he won his eighth in a row with a convincing, unanimous eight-round decision over previously unbeaten Omri Lowther in a good-action junior welterweight match.
