“The One: Mayweather vs. Canelo” press tour came to a conclusion Tuesday night before 10,000 fans at Nokia Plaza at L.A. LIVE. Tempers didn’t exactly flare between Floyd Mayweather, Canelo Alvarez and their camps during the first nine tour stops, but things started to heat up on the last stop, when Floyd lashed out not at Canelo, but at promoter Oscar de la Hoya. (Full details here).
Mayweather told reporters afterward that “this was the only time on the press tour that there was trash talk. They never said a word in the first nine cities. They were totally quiet. Now, all of a sudden we’re in L.A. and they’re talking big like, Canelo is the king. Well, as you saw, if you shoot shots at me, I’ll shoot shots back. How you react to me is how I’ll react to you. You show me respect, I show you respect. Every time they give a fighter a huge buildup, I bring them down. It’s so crazy. Canelo is a great, young, strong champion, but he’s never fought on pay-per-view unless he’s been on one of my undercards. I’ve been here before, done it all for 17 years. Does he belong in the ring with me? We’ll just have to see, but I haven’t seen it yet.”

Florida Boxing Hall of Fame member and former Don King Productions trainer Al Bonanni plans to give the dog days of summer some much-needed bite with a local fight card Saturday, August 10th at Casino Miami Jai Alai. Bonanni has kept himself busy since parting ways with King last December by running local cards through his promotional company Tiburon Promotions. This show, titled “Summer Slugfest” promises to spotlight young local talent on their way up. Twenty-nine year old former National Golden Gloves champion and Haitian Olympian Azea “The Haitian Hitman” Augustama headlines in a ten-round bout against Newton “The Butcher” Kidd of the Bronx. The always-popular local southpaw Cuban-American bantamweight Jessy Cruz lights up the undercard against Lamar Charlton in a six-round contest. Egyptian super-middleweight prospect Ahmed Elbiali expects another knockout to match the one he scored earlier this year during his professional debut when he squares off against Jerrod Caldwell of Gainesville. Tickets for Summer Slugfest are on sale now at $15, $35 and $55. Fans may purchase through www.ticketmaster.com or by calling Casino Miami Jai Alai at (305) 633-6400.
Heavyweight Tony Thompson called off his planned visit to the gym of former world light welterweight champion Amir Khan today. Thompson was scheduled to meet with Khan and his manager Asif Vali at their gym in Bolton, but he told promoter Frank Maloney that it was too close to fight time to make the trip to Bolton, and that he wants to concentrate on preparing for his rematch with Liverpool’s David Price this Saturday. The fight can be seen Live In the United States on Wealth TV and WealthTV.com. The card begins at 2:30 pm est / 11:30 am Pacific. Thompson said he will reschedule his visit once he has defeated Price, but his aim for the moment is to focus entirely on his Saturday’s fight at the Liverpool Echo Arena.
WealthTV is available nationally on Verizon FiOS TV channel 169 and 669 in HD, AT&T U-Verse TV channels 470 and 1470 in HD, along with over 100 cable systems across the country as well as on line viewing via computer and numerous connected devices and via www.wealthtv.com.

Olympic gold medalist in London, Japanese middleweight Ryota Murata will make a pro debut against current OPBF middleweight champ Akio Shibata (21-7-1, 9 KOs) for six sensational rounds in Tokyo on August 25. Murata, a highly expected athlete, will appear at the Ariake Coliseum, since there will be a bigger crowd to see his first professional bout than the capacity of the Korakuen Hall, our regular boxing venue. Murata is the second gold medalist ever produced in Japan since golden bantam Takao Sakurai in the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964. It will be competed at the 73 kilogram (161 pounds) catchweight without Shibata’s OPBF belt on the line. Murata’s good performance will be highly expected by our fight fans.

Former IBF featherweight champion Billy Dib is confident he will be victorious on Friday when he will clash with former IBO champion Mike Oliver over ten rounds at Hartford, Connecticut. The Australian is coming off a split decision loss to American-based Russian Evgeny Gradovich, who took his IBF championship belt. Dib is after a rematch with Gradovich if he defeats the veteran Oliver (25-3, 8 KOs). “This is a huge opportunity for me to right some wrongs. I am desperate to get my belt back,” Dib said. “Everything happens for a reason. I was meant to lose that fight to Gradovich, but I truly believe that when we meet again I will beat him convincingly and regain the title that is rightfully mine. I am not overlooking Mike Oliver. He is a very good boxer with a strong record, and he’ll be fighting in his home town so I’ll have the crowd against me. But I am not here to bolster other fighters’ records. I am here to be a dominant champion and win titles, and that is what I plan to do by defeating Oliver and then getting revenge over Gradovich.”
Billy Dib is managed by his brother, Emaid who is confident Billy will be impressive against Oliver. “Billy has been performing at his brilliant best in training and I am expecting him to bring his ‘A Game’ to the ring on Friday.” The promoter is 50 Cent. The bout will be televised on ESPN2.
