Penn “still that guy”

August 28, 2010. For a brief moment, it was going to be the last time we would ever see BJ Penn fight.

“The first thing that came to me was I don’t know if I want to do this, and that comes to every fighter after some losses,” said Penn, who had just lost his second straight UFC lightweight title fight to Frankie Edgar. “I thought that maybe I didn’t have the motivation anymore.” . . . .

Kohl on Haye-Chagaev clash

Universum promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl has responded to a statement that WBA mandatory title challenger Ruslan Chagaev wouldn’t be allowed to fight in England against WBA champion David Haye due to health reasons. “I read a statement from Wilfried Sauerland’s son Kalle son that annoyed me very much. This is another attempt to avoid our boxer Ruslan Chagaev. We will not tolerate this a second time.

“In 2009 in Helsinki they hid behind the weak Finnish Association. That’s why the rematch didn’t come about between Ruslan Chagaev and Nikolai Valuev. What was incomprehensible for every boxing fan was that the first fight took place in 2007 under identical health conditions for Ruslan. We are firmly opposed to claims that Ruslan is sick. According to the best virologists he’s not contagious. Just like the first fight with Valuev, Wladimir Klitschko was immediately ready to fight Ruslan. Now another campaign is being launched against Ruslan and I will not permit it. For me, this is a sign that David Haye and Sauerland are afraid to lose the belt and thus blow up the big Klitschko payday.”

Green outpoints Flores

IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green (31-3, 27 KOs) retained the title when he was awarded a clear twelve round decision over previously unbeaten B J Flores (24-1, 15 KOs) on Wednesday night at the Challenge Stadium in Perth, Western Australia.

Flores connected with accurate left jabs and used clever foot work to evade many of Green’s heavy punches in the early rounds. Referee Howard Foster warned Green in round five for holding and hitting. Both boxers exchanged solid combinations in round five. Round six produced fireworks with the American showing a granite chin as he absorbed solid shots and came back with his own heavy artillery. Round seven had Flores forcing the action as he scored with crisp combo’s but Green always looking dangerous. Round eight Flores landed chopping right hand but Green came back with a solid left rip-left hook combo and buckled Flores knees at the bell when he delivered a power right to the jaw at the bell. Flores was the aggressor in round nine as Green backed into the ropes and countered his opponent effectively. Round ten had Green continually counter punching Flores effectively but the American was never in trouble at any stage. Round eleven had Green connecting with a right hand bomb but Flores responded with rapid combinations. Round twelve had Green stepping up a gear and delivering heavy combinations but Flores had the jab working well until the bell sounded. Scores 117-111, 118-110, 118-111. (more…)
