Ngoudjo corner all squared!

By Dave Spencer

Yet another change in the corner of Hermann Ngoudjo for Friday night’s IBF super-lightweight showdown with Juan Urango taking place at the Bell Centre in Montreal. With Ngoudjo’s trainer Howard Grant suspended for his actions at the end of the Lucian Bute versus Librado Andrade bout, it was announced Wednesday that promoter Yvon Michel would enter in and assist Howard’s brother Otis, who would be the chief second for the contest. No go declared the Quebec Commission (Regie des Alcools des Courses et des Jeux) who referred to a 2004 amendment to the combat sport licensing regulations that state in paragraph 58 that the board may cancel any trainer or cornerman’s license who works concurrently as an organizer. With the regulation clear, Michel has stepped aside and welcomed long time trainer and cutman Russ Anber to Ngoudjo’s corner. The pairing reunites Anber and Otis Grant, the boxer he trained for ten years as a professional and a world championship. “I know Russ very well,” said Ngoudjo. “I trained during the 2 last months with the one of his boxers, David Lemieux and Russ was very often with us. We could not have found better under the circumstances.”
