Chaos at Egyptian presser

Promoter Richard Nwoba and Louaa Boxing held a press conference last night at the IES-Egypt Center in Cairo suburb Maadi to officially announce a big tripleheader at the Nile Country Club a few miles away on September 17. Chaos erupted as one of the featured fighters, light heavyweight Mazur Ali, went berserk, attacked a camera man and yelled obscenities at everyone in his sight. Ali apparently felt that another boxer was getting more attention than him, and when Nwoba tried to calm him down, Ali also attacked the promoter. As a consequence of his behavior, Mazur Ali is now suspended by the Egyptian Professional Boxing Association, and was immediately pulled off the show. Ali was scheduled to fight Ahmed Saed for the Egyptian national title, but Saed will now instead face Tanzanian Lusekelo Daudi for the vacant UBO All-Africa light heavyweight title. (more…)

Alexander a heavy favorite

By Karl Freitag

WBC/IBF super lightweight champion Devon Alexander is a prohibitive favorite to defeat former WBA champion Andriy Kotelnik in their showdown on DKP’s big world championship tripleheader on Saturday in Las Vegas. Hometown favorite Alexander is -900 at WilliamHill.com, -1100 at Sportsbook.com and -1200 at Bet365.com. Kotelnik backers can get +500/+600/+600.

Alexander is a deserved favorite, but the fight against Kotelnik would seem to be a lot closer that the betting lines indicate. However, the challenger’s lack of finishing power (only 2 KOs since 2003) doesn’t bode well against a local hero.

In the clash for IBF light heavyweight championship between champion Tavoris Cloud and 41-year-old ex-champ Glen Johnson, Jacobs is a -225 pick at WilliamHill.com, -260 at Sportsbook.com and -275 at Bet365.com. Johnson is +163/+200/+200 respectively.

“The Road Warrior” is considered by many to be a “live underdog” against the talented, but comparitively inexperienced champion.

Only Sportsbook.com and Bet365.com are offering a line on the IBF jr middleweight title clash between Cory Spinks and Cornelius Bundrage. Spinks, also a hometown hero. Notable odds difference with Spinks -350 on Sportsbook.com and -275 at Bet365.com, while Bundrage is +275 and +200.
