Zaveck set for first defense

SES Boxing

IBF welterweight champion Jan Zaveck (28-1, 16 KOs) and Rodolfo Ezequiel Martinez (36-3-1, 13 KOs) faced off Tuesday in advance of their world title showdown on Friday in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The Argentine Martinez promised to do “a tango” in the ring against Zavek, who countered by saying he would show the challenger a Slovenian Polka. Both fighters looked to be in top form. The SES Boxing-promoted Zaveck is known for his aggressive style and said he wants to impress his fellow countrymen. Martinez, however, stated Zaveck would be impressed by his style and he would go on the offensive and take the belt from the champion.

Lorraine Chargin is gone

Lorraine Chargin, longtime boxing promoter with her husband Don, passed away Tuesday in a hospital near their Cambria, California coastal home. Lorraine and Don have been a couple since 1957 and wed for 49 years. “I don’t know what I’ll do without my sweet Lorraine,” said Don. “I can’t stop looking at her picture. The only comfort I have is knowing that my sweetheart is no longer suffering.” Lorraine, 79, had been treated for cancer in recent weeks. Don was inducted into The International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2001 and everyone agreed that Lorraine was unofficially a member of The Hall as well. A memorial service for friends and family will be held in Cambria next Wednesday. She will missed but never forgotten. Rest in peace, Lorraine.

New Foe for McClain

By Jose E. Santiago

In an NABF cruiserweight title fight hyped up with bad blood featuring Yahya McClain versus Lou Del Valle less than two weeks away, Del Valle has been sidelined by an apparent back injury. According to the Del Valle camp the injury occurred while he was training this past weekend. A doctors analysis has not been performed and is currently scheduled for Wednesday. McClain senses something fishy in the works. “How can a man be injured so severely that he can’t fight, but hasn’t even gone to see a doctor yet?” McClain told Fightnews Tuesday afternoon. Stepping in to fill the void is 35 year old Jason Richardson (18-5 11KO) of the Chicago area. Robinson is a viable, and experienced challenge for McClain being that he’s duked it out with world champions James Toney, Ezra Sellers, and O’Neal Bell in the past. (more…)
