It was cartilage damage in the ribs of Floyd Mayweather Jr. that KO’d the July 18 showdown with Juan Manuel Marquez. A September date is now being considered, pending Mayweather’s recovery.
The fight between 48-year-old former WBO heavyweight champion Ray Mercer and former UFC champion Tim Silva, which was denounced by the Association of Boxing Commissions as “unwarranted and illegal,” did take place over the weekend in Birmingham, Alabama. Mercer needed just 9 seconds to knock out Silva.
Looks like the August 1 WBO junior welterweight clash between champion Timothy Bradley and former lightweight champ Nate Campbell will take place at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort and Spa in Rancho Mirage, California. It’ll be a home game for Bradley, who hails from nearby Palm Springs.
