Owensboro's Julius Maddox is currently ranked #1 in the world for raw bench press.  This weekend he will attempt to break the world record at Boss of Bosses in Mountain View, CA.

Julius attempted to break the record not quite getting it this past June at "The Battle of the Bay" in Corprus Christi, Texas.  However, he did break the American Record at 723.1 pounds.

The current record holder is Russian Powerlifter, Kirll Sarychev, with a lift of 738.2 pounds in 2015.

This is a life-changing event for Julius.  More people have walked on the moon than have lifted what Julius has in his career.

We want to wish Julius the very best of luck on his journey.  We'll post an update as soon as we have one.
