After laughing at the wonderfully named “Sugar Poo” and the ridiculous “The Dutch Sonny Liston” we are now taking the chance to laugh at someone's real name, the unfortunately named Trenton Titsworth. Titsworth, currently a Welterweight journeyman fighting in the US is actually in action in a few hours time and we couldn't resist the chance to mention him on www.weirdboxing.info.

Titsworth, from Nebraska debuted back in 2007 with a win over Sean Ryan Wilson and just months later he returned to defeat Alain Olivero since then however his career has been down hill with just 2 wins in his following 16 bouts as he compiled a record of 4-13-1 (2).

In 2008 Titsworth was involved in one of the most bizarre boxing incidents we've seen. Titsworth was facing a young Jessie Vargas on HBO's “Boxing After Dark” series and during the course of the bout Titsworth kissed Vargas on the neck. This lead to the referee deducting 2 points from Titsworth (one for “unsportsmanlike conduct” and another for “intentional”) and to Vargas firing a very clean, hard blow on the break call. Jim Lampley, working for HBO summed it up perfectly in his commentary “He kissed Vargas behind the ear which prompted Vargas to knock the living shit out of him. A lot of guys will do that when you kiss 'em.”

Last time out Titsworth beat the equally amusing Nick Runningbear by decision and will tonight be looking to upset unbeaten prospect Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin (I swear I couldn't make this all up).

At just 28 years old we are likely to see Titsworth's name come up a few times in boxing reports over the coming years so watch out for it and enjoy the wonders of a funny surname.
