Omar Soto: The crowd is not going to be in the ring with us. The title is going back to Puerto Rico. Mexican fans are in for a bad surprise.

Jacques Deschamps (Sosa’s manager): Soto is a good fighter but he’s not going to stop the Sosa-express. We have great plans for Edgar for 2010.

The boxing world lost one of its truly great guys, last night, when longtime Main Events Operations Manager Dennis Dueltgen suddenly passed away while suffering an apparent heart attack at his home.

MAIN EVENTS STATEMENT

It is with profound sadness that we at Main Events offer our condolences to his wife, Jill, his children, Deanne and Darryl, his sister, Joanne Dietz, and his brother, Jeffrey Dueltgen.

Dennis was a constant and energetic presence in all of our lives and his absence leaves a void that cannot be filled.  He was always the first one to offer a hand when friends, family and even acquaintances were in need, lifting their spirits with his unique brand of humor as he gladly drove them to numerous doctor appointments and hospital stays, brought them food or ran their errands and did their chores.

Courtesy Jim Jenkins, Sacramento Bee

The California Boxing Commission re-examined the scorecards from Saturday night’s (Sept. 12) boxing card at the Red Lion Hotel in Sacramento and the check showed that IBF No. 3 cruiserweight contender Matt Godfrey (20-1) won his 10-round main event by a split decision over hometowner Michael Simms (20-12-2) and not by the announced majority decision. The corrected judges’ scores, according to AtCom inspector Mike Guzman, are 96-93 and 95-94 for Godfrey, reigning NABF champ from Providence, R.I., and 95-94 for Simms. There was no even scorecard.

Manny Pacquiao, smiling all the time under drizzly San Francisco skies, said he’s ready to start training for his fight with Miguel Cotto—and determined to live a dream that has nothing to do with boxing, singing, movies or politics. Pacquiao, who spoke to Fightnews after a brief, chaotic press conference and fan event at AT&T Park to promote his November 14th fight with Miguel Cotto, related last year that he dreams of visiting Vatican City. “I have not been there yet, but I will go with my family, hopefully not too long after this fight,” the devout Catholic said after the 25-minute event with his trainer, Freddie Roach; Cotto; and others. “It is important for me to go there. It is a dream I have had for a long time.” (more…)
