Pro careerEdit

Cauthen began his professional career in 1996 and built up a 15 fight winning streak heading into a 1999 showdown against the powerful Teddy Reid. Reid won via TKO in the 4th, and Cauthen set forth on an 11 fight winning streak to rebuild his credibility. This came to an abrupt end with a split decision loss to journeyman Dairo Jose Esalas followed by a unanimous decision loss to rising star Paul Williams (boxer). Cauthen has yet to fight for a title, and another 5 fight winning streak came to end in with a loss to contender Sechew Powell in an IBF title eliminator. Following the loss to Powwll, Cauthen lost two of his next three fights.
