Diaz-Ngoudjo in May

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

Hermann Ngoudjo will be meeting two-time world champion Julio Diaz on May 14th from the Buffalo Bill Casino in Primm Nevada promoter for Montreal super-lightweight confirmed on Wednesday. The matchup will be part of an ESPN2 broadcast of Friday Night Fights. Ngoudjo returned from a broken jaw and year off this past February with a TKO victory over Silverio Ortiz. “There’s an agreement in place but no signed contracts as of yet,” said Yvon Michel, promoter for Ngoudjo. “It’s a good fight for both fighters and particularly a good fight for Hermann. He proved in his last fight he was back and I think this kind of opposition will prove it to everybody. A win could launch him right back to another world title shot.” Ngoudjo (18-3, 10 KOs) has had a pair of title shots and come up short both times, losing a close decision to Paulie Malignaggi and going the distance with Juan Urango despite breaking his jaw in round three. Diaz (36-6, 26 KOs) lost out on his bid in 2007 to become unified champion to Juan Diaz and has gone 2-2 since, including a loss last July to undefeated Victor Cayo.

Abraham-Dirrell Presser

Free Preview Weekend on SHOWTIME®

Tom Casino/SHOWTIME

By Bob Ryder

With both fighters exhibiting much mutual respect, Andre Dirrell and Arthur Abraham met the press for the final time at an assembled media gathering at the MGM Casino in downtown Detroit in advance of their bout on Saturday night at Joe Louis Arena. Unlike many press conferences of the day, there was no shouting, hurling of insults, or degradation of opponents skills and abilities. What was on display was an example of two athletes, trained, confident, and ready to show their skills in the ring.

After brief introductory remarks by promoters Gary Shaw and Wilfred Sauerland, Arthur Abraham was first to take the podium. “I’m not here to talk, I’m here to box” proclaimed a stoic and serious Abraham leading off his very short remarks. After thanking everyone for attending and stating that he has great respect for every boxer as they all are fighting for their family, pride and country, he closed with a “see you Saturday night.”

A slightly more animated but also very serious Andre Dirrell took the podium to the shouts and cheers of his camp and supporters. “We worked real hard in camp. Arthur will see the true essence and science of boxing. I feel excellent. Arthur Abraham is a great opponent and I’m glad to have the opportunity to fight him.” However, Dirrell ended his comments with a resounding “the king will be dethroned!” Click here for more…

Froch rooting for Abraham

With only two days to go until the next Super Six World Boxing Classic fight the WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch is weighing up who is most likely to win and who he will be backing between former IBF middleweight title holder ‘King’ Arthur Abraham and Andre ‘The Matrix’ Dirrell. “I can’t pick a winner because it’s in the States. I really am 50/50,” said Froch of the second round fight. However when pushed, Carl leaned towards Abraham, urging him to beat Dirrell as Froch himself did in the first round of the Super Six after a split decision. Froch said: “It will either be a brutal KO by Abraham or a boring points decision by Dirrell with a bitch-like performance. Come on Abraham…catch him sweet!” Froch will be facing Mikkel Kessler on April 24th.
