Two-time Canadian Olympian and winner of Season 4 of The Contender reality series Troy Ross (L) spars with Felix Cora (R). Ironically Ross (21-1, 15 KOs) TKO’d Cora to advance to the semi-final bracket of The Contender. Ross is training for a June 19th bout with Michael Simms (20-10, 13 KOs) which will be the chief support for the WBC light heavyweight title contest between champion Adrian Diaconu and Jean Pascal at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. The card is promoted by Eric Lucas of Interbox plus Yvon Michel of GYM Promotions and will be telecast live in the United States by the VERSUS Network.

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
