Q&A with Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker

Story by Anthony Springer Jr.

2012 is set to be one of the biggest years in the history of Strikeforce. With more muscle behind it courtesy of being purchased by MMA powerhouse Zuffa (owners of the UFC) and a brand new deal with Showtime, the promotion aims to reach more eyes and keep putting on amazing fights. Fight News caught up with Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker ahead of this weekend’s fight at The Joint inside the Hard Rock hotel in Las Vegas to get his thoughts on the upcoming card, the fate of the women’s division and whether Strikeforce will finally get the recognition it deserves.

Khan says mystery man interfered with scorecards

Former WBA/IBF jr welterweight champion Amir Khan says an unidentified “mystery man” in a black hat interacted with WBA supervisor Michael Welsh and interfered with the judges’ scorecards during his upset loss to hometown favorite Lamont Peterson in Washington DC. “I want to know who this man is,” Khan told Sky Sports News. “He had no accreditation. At the end of the fight he was straight over Peterson’s people, celebrating with them.” Khan also posted numerous photos of the “mystery man” online and the BBC reportedly contacted Welsh who refused to reveal the mystery man’s identity.

Jürgen Brähmer hoping to re-ignite his career

Former WBO light heavyweight champion Jürgen Brähmer (36-2, 29 KOs) is hoping to get a shot at another world title sometime in 2012. But first he has to show that he can actually go through with a fight. Brähmer pulled out of three consecutive title defenses on late notice citing illness or injury and was stripped of his belt by the WBO. 21 months since his last fight, he’s now going to give it a try once again on January 28 against Spaniard José Maria Guerrero (29-2-1, 11 KOs) in Hamburg. Despite causing three straight promotional disasters for Universum Box-Promotion, Brähmer says he has agreed on a contract extension and is now ready to focus on boxing.

Strikeforce: ‘King Mo’ has been here before

Story by Anthony Springer Jr.

Muhammad Lawal (8-1) sat at yesterday’s Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine press conference and looked like he didn’t have a care in the world.

With his now trademark headphones slightly above his ears, the former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion looked down through most of the conference and only perked up when correcting CEO Scott Coker about his weight class (Coker mistakenly referred to Lawal as a middleweight). (more…)

Mayweather to start jail stint today

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather is scheduled to begin serving his 90 day sentence in a county jail in Las Vegas today after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor battery charge last month. With good behavior, Floyd could be back on the street in 60 days. Floyd’s legal situation has scuttled a possible May showdown with Manny Pacquiao. Pacman is now expected to choose his next opponent from a short list consisting of Timothy Bradley, Miguel Cotto, Juan Manuel Marquez and Lamont Peterson. A decision could be made as soon as this weekend for a May or June date.

Newly-formed promotional powerhouse Acquinity Sports held a top-class press conference yesterday from the swank Boca Prime Steakhouse in Boca Raton for this Saturday’s card at the Hollywood Westin Diplomat Resort and Spa. Headlining the Telefutura-televised card is current WBO Latino champion and Hollywood hometown resident Ed “The Lion” Paredes (28-3-1, 18 KOs). Paredes squares off against tough Mexican puncher Michael Lozada (39-9-1, 31 KOs) in a 10-rounder.

Paredes took the podium to tell his local and national fans: “This is an important fight for me, I’ve trained very hard for this fight and Saturday night will show how ready I am to take the next step in my career.” Lozada believes he has the goods to knock off the young “Lion,” responding: “There is no hometown advantage for Paredes. I have the experience and the power to win this fight.”

Fightnews had a chance to catch up with Acquinity Sports Boxing promoter Henry Rivalalta during the festivities to discuss the upcoming card. (more…)
