At the “Global Boxing Gym” in North Bergen, New Jersey, both of the main actors at the Prudential Center main event on December 9 – top world heavyweight Tomasz Adamek (42-1, 27 KOs) and the always tough Vinny Maddalone (33-6, 24 KO) were all smiles. “It will be the fight every fan of boxing has to see, because Tomasz Adamek and Vinny Maddalone are guys like from a different era – they want to fight, give fans their money worth. It will be like Mickey Ward versus Arturo Gatti – punch for punch” – said Joe DeGuardia, who represents Maddalone. Adamek, as usual, did not want to play with predictions. ”I hope after my five years of fighting in US and two world titles in the light heavyweight and cruiserweight divisions, fans of boxing already know that I’m always well prepared to fight for them. Full speed ahead. The ‘no fear’ motto will apply to my fight with Vinny,” said Adamek.

Adamek vs. Maddalone will take place on December 9 in Prudential Center in Newark, and will be televised live on PPV by Integrated Sports Media

More on Abraham-Froch

Photo: Adam Monaghan / www.adammonaghan.com.

King Arthur Abraham’s first face-to-face meeting with Carl “The Cobra” Froch on neutral territory was certainly one to remember as they wasted no time to exchange pleasantries during today´s kick-off press conference in Helsinki, Finland. In Group Stage 3 of the Super Six World Boxing Classic, the two superstars will lock horns at the famous Hartwall Areena on November 27, with the vacant WBC Super-Middleweight Title on the line. Froch (26-1, 20 KOs) said he found it odd that Abraham calls himself “The King” and also dresses like one. “Abraham has a picture of himself posing as a king at his house,” Froch stated. “He wears a plastic crown and a feather coat. I find that very strange and it tells you something about him. He will certainly not be the king after we have met inside the ring. I am going to stuff him like a chicken.” (more…)

Boytsov on IBF heavyweight tourney

"My doctor hasn't given the green light"

Photo: Baering

Universum heavyweight Denis Boytsov (27-0, 22 KOs) has explained the reason he is unable to participate in the IBF’s four fighter box-off which would culminate with a new mandatory challenger for IBF world champion Wladimir Klitschko. “I’m very honored and my heart bleeds that I can’t take this challenge,” said the unbeaten heavyweight, who is rated in the top five of all sanctioning bodies. “I’m totally disappointed, since I’m a fighter. However, the reason isn’t that I have no desire to compete in such a tournament, but that the doctors still haven’t given me the green light for a 12-round fight. Coming off a hand operation, a tune-up fight will likely take place later this year as a test. If all goes positively, I’ll be ready for everything. My promoter is preparing the suitable medical documents for the IBF so that they can 100% understand the reason I can’t participate.” (more…)

Tarver’s targets heavies

Interview by David Finger
Photos by Chris Cozzone

Usually when a 41-year-old former light heavyweight champion on the heels of back to back losses announces that he’s going to make a run for the heavyweight championship, boxing insiders are less than supportive. The conventional wisdom is that the comeback will end in a humiliating defeat, or worse. And more often than not, the comeback is ignored by the networks in hope that it will go away on its own.

Such is the power of Antonio Tarver (27-6, 19 KO’s) that he has already done something magical: create a major buzz in the sport despite his age and his losses in his last two fights. . . . Click here for more
