NYSAC delays Margarito decision; possibility looms that the bout could be moved

The New York State Athletic Commission today postponed their decision on whether or not they will license Antonio Margarito to face Miguel Cotto on December 3 at the nearly sold out Madison Square Garden in New York City, pending an examination by a commission doctor. Margarito suffered a serious eye injury in his bout with Manny Pacquiao in November 2010, but had been given to go-ahead by doctors to meet Cotto in a highly charged rematch.

Meanwhile, there is speculation that should the NYSAC fumble the ball, several states would be willing to stage the bout with Cowboys Stadium in Dallas being the frontrunner.

Argenis Mendez, Joan Guzman showcased tonight

IBF #6 rated super featherweight Argenis Mendez (18-2, 9 KOs) returns to action tonight in his native country of the Dominican Republic. It will be Mendez’ first fight since a controversial decision loss to Juan Carlos Salgado for the IBF super featherweight championship. Mendez had hoped to immediately secure a rematch against Salgado, but rather than wait around for the fight to possibly materialize, he will look to take things into his own hands and work his way back toward another title shot, beginning with his bout tonight against Jose Palma (14-4-2, 9 KOs). The bout, scheduled for 10 rounds, will take place at the Hotel Jaragua, in Santo Domingo. Headlining the card, which will be aired by ESPN Deportes, will be former world champion Joan Guzman taking on Florencio Castellano for the vacant IBF Caribbean welterweight title.

Dereck Chisora says he’s primed to upset Robert Helinius

“I’m surprised Helenius’ people wanted me to fight their unbeaten golden boy, they must be going on my performance in my last fight and think I’m easy pickings,” said heavyweight Dereck Chisora who will face Robert Helenius for the European heavyweight title at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland, on December 3rd.

“Believe me, this is the biggest mistake they have made with his career and I’ll be going over to Finland to knock him clean out. He’s called the Nordic Nightmare, but he’ll be having nightmares about me for the rest of his life after I’ve left him flat out on the canvas. I’ll be fit and ready for this fight like never before, it’s the big fight I need to really get my juices flowing and performing like I know I can. I can’t wait for December 3 and winning that European title and bringing it back to Britain.”

Sayers is a force to be reckoned with

STRIKEFORCE is live on SHOWTIME tonight!

Lumumba Sayers finally said “enough.” After taking a fight on two weeks’ notice against unbeaten Derek Brunson on July’s Strikeforce: Fedor vs Henderson card, he went through all the stresses that come with not having a full training camp. He had to worry about making weight, not strategy, and as far as having the opportunity to study his opponent, that was not a luxury he possessed . . .
