Arum: Mayweather missed deadline

Cotto or Margarito negotiations to begin

By Karl Freitag

At midnight PT/3AM ET, Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum announced that Floyd Mayweather has missed the deadline for exclusive negotiations for a showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Mayweather. Arum revealed that HBO’s Ross Greenburg had seemingly brokered a deal with Mayweather’s manager Al Haymon, but Mayweather hasn’t signed on. Arum said he will now be talking to the camps of Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito next week about fighting Manny in November, although if Mayweather comes out of hibernation before a deal is made with Cotto or Margarito, Pacquiao-Mayweather could still be made. Arum stated he believes that Floyd has a good reason for not committing to the fight, perhaps the uncertainty over the availability trainer Roger Mayweather due to legal problems.

More on Guerrero-Smith

Photos by Tom Casino/SHOWTIME

Fernando Guerrero furthered his pursuit of middleweight stardom with a hard fought unanimous decision over veteran Ishe Smith in Friday’s ShoBox main event. Shawn Porter and Mike Dallas Jr. also took home unanimous decision victories at the DeSoto Civic Center in Southaven, Miss. to remain unbeaten. Coming in to tonight’s matchup, Smith (21-5, 9 KOs) was quoted as saying, “I’m going to take Guerrero into deep waters and see if he can swim.” Guerrero (19-0, 15 KOs) proved to be a buoyant battler by withstanding an eighth round flash knockdown and ten rounds of body shots from Smith. Though most of the body work was legitimate, referee Randy Phillips twice warned Smith, of Las Vegas, Nev., for repeated low blows before deducting a point in the sixth round.

Frederick wins war in Tampa!

By Christopher Cook

Dillet Frederick (7-3-3, 4 KOs) won a crowd pleasing battle over formerly undefeated Raymond Chalres. Frederick, who started out his career in fine fashion 5-0-2, has hit a hard streak since, but seemingly put that behind him this night. Charles, now 12-1-2, 5 KOs, came in the favorite, looking to use this bout to place himself closer in line for a title shot. A tough test turned into a showcase of Dillet’s talent and skill, as he overcame the brawler, dropping Charles twice in the second and once in the third, winning via stoppage in the third round. Frederick, who came up with the likes of contender and fellow Florida native Edner “Cherry Bomb” Cherry, looks to set his career straight with a victory like this. On the undercard, Adam Jaco (8-3-1, 3 KOs) knocked out the overmatched Robbie Tovar (15-6-1, 5 KOs), winning by easily TKO. One Punch Productions returns on September 17 with the next installment of Ballroom Brawl at the Doubletree in Tampa, Florida.

James Toney, the Natural

Think fighter, think James ‘Lights Out’ Toney. Although the specifics pigeonhole Toney as a professional boxer, Toney’s always been more of a fighter than anything or anyone else. While fighting peers train or learn tough, Toney just is. Some fake it, Toney does it. Fighting comes to Toney as naturally as a shoulder-roll followed by a counter right-cross and nobody, across the entire combat sports spectrum, appears at one with their sport like Toney and boxing. Some men are known as ‘The Natural’, but Toney truly is just that . . . Click here for more by Elliot Worsell, UFC.com
