Briggs wants to make noise

Story by David L. Hudson

This power-punching heavyweight has won 50 professional boxing matches, including a literal last-second win over Sergei Lyakhovich to win the WBO world heavyweight title. He possesses devastating power as witnessed by his 44 stoppages, but this pugilist has shown severe stamina problems at times in part due to his asthma. He has squared off against former heavyweight champions George Foreman, Lennox Lewis, Ray Mercer and Sultan Ibragimov in a career that began in 1992 with 10 first round stoppages in his first 12 bouts. He reeled off 25 consecutive victories to begin his career before a surprising kayo loss to Darroll Wilson.

His name is Shannon Briggs  . . Click here for more

After a career that has spanned nearly 18 years, it appears that Rob “All-American Prizefighter” Calloway (70-11-2, 57 KO’s) is close to calling it a career.

Besides owning one of the most successful fitness clubs in St. Joseph, Missouri (the Team Calloway Family Heath & Fitness Club) he also has started working as a physical therapist. It appears that Calloway looks poised to enter his post-boxing life with more going for him than most former fighters . . . Click here for more

Yuri Foreman ring entrance

Just prior to undefeated WBA super welterweight champion and future rabbi Yuri Foreman’s ring walk to his first world title defense will be the sounding of the shofar. The shofar is a horn, traditionally that of a ram, used for Jewish religious purposes. The sounding of the shofar is incorporated in synagogue services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. “Welcome to Yankel Stadium,” said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum. “We are very fortunate to have Israel’s No. 1 entertainer Yoni Dror of Tel Aviv attending the fight to sound the shofar immediately prior to Yuri’s ring walk. Yoni was thrilled when we asked him and we were even happier he accepted. Yoni is beyond compare when it comes to sounding the shofar. It will be a very dramatic beginning to a very symbolic event.” (more…)

Forbes’ long road back

UFC 114 is LIVE on PPV May 29!

The last thing people heard from Jesse Forbes after he was eliminated from the third season of The Ultimate Fighter in 2006 was that he would be back. Nearly four years later, he delivered on that promise.

Of course, in mixed martial arts, four years can be an eternity, enough time to make or break a career, but Forbes, who was eliminated from TUF3’s semifinals by Josh Haynes and then halted in the first round by Matt Hamill on the show’s finale card, never wavered in his resolve, something he owes to a stubborn nature that he’s had his entire life . . . .

Cotto guarantees victory

By Karl Freitag

Two division world champion Miguel Cotto (34-2, 27 KOs) guaranteed that he’ll become the new WBA super welterweight champion when he challenges WBA 154lb titleholder Yuri Foreman (28-0, 8 KOs) on June 5th at Yankee Stadium. Cotto wouldn’t specify whether it would be a KO or a decision, but he vowed that he would leave the ring as champion. Cotto’s new trainer Emanuel Steward stated Cotto’s best weight is probably around 150 so the 154lb division is perfect for him. Steward also said Foreman punches better than his record indicates.
