Mundine returns June 30

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine (38-3, 23 KOs) will return to ring action at jr middleweight poundage on June 30 against Carlos Adan Jerez (30-12-3, 16 KOs) over twelve rounds at the Brisbane Entertainment Center, Queensland, Australia.

Mundine was extended over twelve against Robert Medley in his most recent contest in 2010 and in 2009 most boxing writers at ringside had Daniel Geale ahead although the official judges favored Mundine. Promoter Tony Mundine. Televised throughout Australia on Main Event Pay-Per-View Television.

What to expect from Lytle

UFC 116 is LIVE on PPV July 3!

There are guys in the UFC who fight with absolute predictability. Chris Lytle is one of those guys. Whenever he steps in the Octagon, his game plan is clear to everyone in the room—it’s to stand and trade leather, to bang on the feet until somebody drops, even if it’s himself. A trademark image of Lytle would be a grin and a stream of blood running down his face. We’ve all seen it; he ends up that way almost every time he steps in the cage . . .

Montiel-Morel update

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Word is that WBO interim bantamweight champion Eric Morel has signed the contract to face WBO/WBC bantamweight champion Fernando Montiel on July 17 in Chiapas, Mexico. Montiel’s signature is still needed. Top Rank won a WBO purse bid for the fight with a bid of $100,500, with Montiel due to earn some $80K to Morel’s $20K, although the pot may be sweetened somewhat. It is hoped that Montiel’s belt will also be on the line as last week WBC President Jose Sulaiman was highly critical of the bout.

Not often can you can find a coach who is training two top heavyweights at the same time. Not unless his name is Roger Bloodworth, who is currently preparing Tomasz Adamek (41-1, 27 KOs) and David Tua (51-3, 43 KOs) in Jersey City.

Tua fights on July 17 at the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City versus Monte Barrett (34-9, 20 KO) and in exactly two months, on August 21 in Newark’s Prudential Center, Adamek will test his skills against Michael Grant (46-3, 34 KO).
