WBO cruiserweight champion Marco “Captain” Huck (29-1, 22 KOs) caught up with the German media yesterday as he continues his preparation for his clash with Matt Godfrey (20-1, 10 KOs). The duo will battle it out in Erfurt on August 21, which will be Huck’s fourth title defense. “Despite the hot weather in Germany we have been working really hard in practice,” Huck said. “My trainer Ulli Wegner has scheduled a lot of exhausting sessions. Fighting in Erfurt will be special for him because he lived there for a long time. So I intent to put on a spectacular performance on August 21 to please him and of course my fans all over the world. Godfrey is a tough challenger, but he has never been inside the ring with someone like me. I am the best cruiserweight in the world and I am keen to prove it once again.” (more…)

Bradley to test welter waters

Big Joe Miranda

By Francisco Salazar

It is no secret that Junior Welterweight world champion Timothy Bradley wants to fight the best fighters out there. Although he is one of more humble young titleholders in boxing today, Bradley is very vocal in wanting to face the best at 140 pounds. After a significant bout fell through and finding no reasonable takers who was willing to step up and face the unbeaten world title holder, Bradley decided to go up in weight and face the best possible challenger out there. Literally. “I just want to fight the best out. That’s my goal.”

Bradley will face a height and size disadvantage on Saturday night as he takes on Luis Carlos Abregu in a 12 round Welterweight bout at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in Rancho Mirage, CA. (more…)

Steward headed to St Louis

An interesting fact emerged in June when Don King planned to present IBF 154-pound champion Cory Spinks against mandatory challenger Cornelius “K9” Bundrage in St. Louis: Bundrage’s Hall of Fame trainer Emanuel Steward revealed he has never set foot inside the city of St. Louis. As fate would have it, the fight was postponed, but King this week added the match to his already-loaded “Gateway to Greatness” card at Scottrade Center on Aug. 7 featuring two undefeated world champions. WBC and IBF 140-pound champion Devon Alexander “The Great” (20-0, 13 KOs) will defend against former WBA junior welterweight champion Andriy Kotelnik (31-3-1, 13 KOs) and IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris “Thunder” Cloud (20-0, 18 KOs) will face the former holder of that belt, Glen Johnson (50-13-2, 34 KOs).

But the questions remain: Will Manny Steward, the proprietor of Detroit’s famed Kronk Gym, ever set foot in St. Louis? Will the legendary trainer ever gaze upon the inspiring Gateway Arch? Will he ever sip his favorite beer, Bud Light, in its home city? Could it be that a man who has accepted all challenges, inside the ring and out, has run into a new type of Spinks Jinx? (more…)
