Bob Oleson Passes

By Sam DiTusa

It is with the greatest sadness that I report the passing of boxing’s Bob Oleson from Portland, Oregon. Bob was a charter member of Boxing’s Northwest Hall of Fame and president and founder of CAM Boxing. Bob has thousands of friends in the sport and was the last of the “my word and hand shake are my bond” guys. Never dealing with contracts, Bob staged hundreds of fights in the Northwest for over 30 years, worked the corner of too many fights to count, and touched the lives of everyone he came in contact with. Bob received calls daily from fighters he worked with over the years, a tribute to how he did business.

A former veteran who actually served in all four branches of the military, recently Bob’s dream has been to stage a pay per view boxing show to benefit disabled Vets, a dream that will continue. Bob is survived by his sons and daughters and the many boxing fans across the country.

Brähmer sick; unification off

WBO light heavyweight champion Jurgen Brähmer (36-2, 29 KOs) was forced to pull out of Saturday’s unification clash with WBA champion Beibut Shumenov (10-1, 5 KOs) in Shymkent, Kazakhstan due to an acute gastrointestinal illness. Brähmer and BDB President Thomas Pütz, another member of the five-person German delegation both fell ill. “A few hours after arrival in Shymkent, both came down with severe diarrhea with nausea and severe vomiting which lasted all night,” explained Dr. Michael Ehnert. “This caused severe headaches and abdominal pain. Jürgen was particularly so weakened that he couldn’t train and it’s not possible for him to be able to compete for a world title in a few days. Due to the unclear cause and ambiguous symptoms, it was decided to arrange for an immediate return to Germany this evening to head directly to the hospital after landing for treatment. So far, we have only a vague suspicion of the cause. Jürgen and Thomas Pütz were eating together on Sunday afternoon near the hotel and that evening they complained about the first symptoms, which increased on Monday.”

Promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl stated “This is a big catastrophe, we and above all Jürgen are crestfallen. This fight would have written German boxing history. Now we hope that Jürgen and Thomas become healthy as soon as possible.” The team is scheduled to arrive back in Hamburg tomorrow at 9AM. It is not known if the bout will be rescheduled.

Floyd Mayweather Jr Update

TMZ has obtained surveillance video taken the night Floyd Mayweather Jr. allegedly roughed up his children’s mother Josie Harris — showing Harris being wheeled off on a stretcher after seeking refuge in a security guard station. As TMZ first reported, Mayweather allegedly blew up at Harris after he learned Harris was seeing an NBA player — CJ Watson of the Chicago Bulls. The police report from that night details how Mayweather’s kids escaped the house and ran to a nearby guard station — and in the video, you can see all three kids entering the station. Police cars can be seen pulling up and, about 15 minutes later, Harris can be seen being taken out on a stretcher as she clutches her head. Mayweather was hit with eight charges from the incident and ordered to stay away from Harris and the kids. He is due back in court January 24.

Rigondeaux: Casey not in my class

WBA interim super bantamweight champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux (7-0, 5 KOs) is preparing to school challenger Willie “Big Bang” Casey (11-0, 7 KOs) when they square-off March 19 in Dublin. “Casey doesn’t belong in the same ring as me,” the 30-year-old Rigondeaux said, “but I admire his courage for wanting to fight me. I’m excited about fighting in Ireland again, where I won my first World Championship as an amateur in 2001. My last fight, against Cordoba, was on the Pacquiao-Margarito card. Millions of people watching on pay-per-view, along with 61,000 fans in Dallas, watched me do what I had to do to win the WBA title.

“I am world champion. Casey and all of the fans in attendance will see a true world champion in action March 19. If Casey thinks I’m going to Ireland to lose my world title belt, he’s making a big mistake because I’m going to win, and in sensational fashion. He is tailor-made for me. I watched a couple of rounds of Casey’s previous fights and concluded that he’s a bit of a one-trick pony. We are as far apart in class as in residence, make no mistake about that and when the bell rings March 19th, that will certainly be evident to all.” (more…)
