Guzman-Funeka II March 27th

Moments ago former two-division world champion Joan Guzman 29-0-1 (17 KOs) faxed his signed contract for his rematch with two-time world title challenger Ali Funeka 30-2-3 (25 KOs) for the vacant IBF lightweight title. If Funeka signs, the bout will take place March 27th at a site to be named. HBO will televise. When Guzman and Funeka first met this past November many observers felt that Funeka deserved the victory instead of the official result of a draw 116-112, 114-114, 114-114. Team Guzman countered that the fight was close and that a case could be made for the draw. “I’m thankful to HBO, my promoter Golden Boy, and my manager Jose Nunez for this opportunity. I’ll be very prepared and ready come March 27th,” said Guzman, who will enter the bout with new trainer Lee Beard. Beard formerly trained Ricky Hatton.
