Antonio_Tarver’s Biography

Professional Career

He made his professional debut with 28 years, on February 18, 1997, in the “Blue Horizon” of Philadelphia against Joaquin Garcia, who won by a Technical KO in the second round.

After winning the following fights and having a record of 16-0 with 14 wins by way of the knockout, he had his first major fight, as it was an elimination to the IBF title. Tarver lost the fight by a unanimous decision against Eric Harding.

After losing his bout, he won Lincoln Carter and Chris Johnson, and had his first fight for the NABF and USBA titles, as well as being an eliminator for the IBF belt. Rival was Reggie Johnson, in a fight that took place on January 25, 2001. Tarver was imposed by the decision of the judges in a scheduled battle at 12 rounds getting their first championships.

It would not be until 2003 when he won his first world title, in a match against Montell Griffin for the vacant titles of the IBF and the CMB. Antonio was imposed on his compatriot by a unanimous decision conquering both titles, but eventually leave the position of the International Boxing Federation vacant.

His most important fight to date was against Roy Jones Jr., in a bout held on November 8, 2003, where both championships (CMB, AMB, The Ring) were at stake. Tarver lost the title by a split decision, thus losing his belt, which he would later recover in the concerted rematch in 2004, when Tarver left KO to Jones in the second round, winning all three championships.

Staying only with The Ring championship, he defended his belt against Jamaican Glen Johnson, a fight he would lose in the points, but like his fight with Jones Jr., he regained his title by winning in the rematch with Johnson in 2005. The title defended him for the first time against Roy Jones Jr., with whom he would close his particular trilogy. Tarver beat Roy in the bout held in Tampa, making it his first defense with a title win.

His next opponent was Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins. The fight was on June 10, 2006 in the city of Atlantic City in New Jersey, and the title that Antonio Tarver possessed was at stake. Hopkins dominated the fight in its entirety and took the just victory against Antonio Tarver who lost the title in his second defense.

After fights against rivals of little entity, it returned to have a fight by the title of the FIB, that owned Clinton Woods, to which it gained in a unanimous decision being the first time that it was raised with the belt of this division. His first defense was against Chad Dawson losing both the first fight and the rematch match, losing any chance of winning the championship again.

His cruiserweight debut came against Danny Green on July 20, 2011, which he won by a Technical KO in the ninth round, securing the IBO title.
