Chicago promoters protest

Up in arms over Commission clamp down

Two top boxing promoters in the Chicagoland area say they are fed up with Illinois commission’s recent spate of rules changes that, they say, make it much more difficult to promote an event in the state. Bobby Hitz, Founder of Hitz Boxing and Domenic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions, say they will meet together with state representatives this week with a list of grievances about the state’s latest round of rule changes.

Already having recently increased their basic fees (some as high as 1000% or more), yesterday (November 1) Rafael Caro II, Public Service Administrator for the Illinois State Athletic Commission notified all licensed promoters of the changes, including the following (paraphrased):

There will be absolutely no deductions done for the Boxers/Contestants at any weigh-in and/or event.

Ringside physicians will not be doing physicals for any contestants… They must get physicals done by a MD or DO only, prior to the weigh-in.

ALL Boxers/Contestants must be licensed prior to the weigh-in.
(Boxers) are to pay all fees by check or money order only whenever they submit their application. Any seconds (cornermen) can get licensed no later than the weigh-in (no one will be allowed to license the day of event).

It is imperative and your sole responsibility to inform all professional boxers/contestants of these new changes. No exceptions will be given.

Jones to face Williams

USBA welterweight champion Carson Jones will look to take another step towards his dream of fighting for a world title when he battles 2000 Olympic Silver Medalist Ricardo “Slicky Ricky” Williams in the main event of “The Corona Rumble at Remington, Presented by Monster Energy” Thursday, December 15 at Remington Park in Oklahoma City, OK.

Jones, 32-8-2 (22 KO’s), hasn’t had any soft touches in the paid ranks, battling a plethora of prospects, contenders and undefeated fighters. Although he’s had his fair share of frustrations, the 25 year old has been on a tear during the last two and a half years, compiling an outstanding 15-1-1 record against solid opposition. (more…)

Juan Manuel Marquez Quick Quotes

By Andreas Hale

Juan Manuel Marquez: “We prepared ourselves to win this fight again. We feel we won the first two fights and that’s how you should go into a fight. We knew the first two fights were close. The 3rd fight will shed any doubt of who the better fighter is. We’re not the only ones that say we won the first fight. The fans and media have said that as well.”

“I don’t believe age has anything to do with it. I prepare very well and I’ll be just as ready as I was a few years back.”

“I would rather fight Pacquiao three or four more times than to fight Mayweather again. Mayweather doesn’t fight. We know Pacquiao fights and we know that this will be a great war.”

Nacho Beristain: “Pacquiao has become a better technical fighter but Marquez has become better as well and is a more experienced fighter. He’s always going to be focused and ready. I think he’ll fight like he’s 24.”

Manny Pacquiao quick quotes

By Andreas Hale

Manny Pacquiao: This third fight will be the answer to whether or not Marquez got robbed in the other two fights. I never underestimate Marquez. There’s a big difference in me today. I have changed and improved a lot of areas and I’m more dangerous now. I think I’m a lot better now. My power has made a big difference. It’s going to be different for him when he steps in the ring with me. We know his weaknesses but we won’t tell you what they are.

Freddy Roach: I’ve never seen Manny as motivated as I have in this fight.
