Goossen: Ward will convert naysayers

(Green) is another step!

Jan Sanders/Goossen Tutor Promotions

“I think that when everybody sees what Andre Ward does Saturday night to a very capable super middleweight like Allan Green, I believe we’ll start getting a lot more believers,” said promoter Dan Goossen to the SHOWTIME crew during his pre-fight interview. “I can remember back to the Muhammad Ali days when I was a young kid watching Ali and every time you’d see him mowing down someone and beating up someone and winning and winning and winning! But there was always those skeptics out there saying ‘Oh just wait until he fights this one fighter!’ or ‘Wait until he has to do that!’ You know it’s just the way it is with people and opinions so a lot of people won’t give Andre Ward his just due. Saturday night will just be another step into converting the ones who are the naysayers.”

“After I knock out Vidoz, I want to fight WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitchko,” Ustinov said. “Yes, he’s my promoter, but I want this fight. I’m ready to become the world champion!”

Uzelkov said, “The fight against Shumenov will be a serious test for me, but I am sure that I’ll knock him out. The Kazakh needed the judges in the fight against Gabriel Campillo, whom I knocked out easily. In a fight with me, the judges will not help Shumenov. He won’t complete of twelfth round.” More to come.

El Tigre defeats Williams

By Peter Lim at ringside

Peter Lim

Light heavyweight Alfonso “El Tigre” Lopez, 20-0 (15 KOs), scored a 10-round shutout decision over Rubin Williams, 29-10-1 (16 KOs), at the Humble Civic Center just outside Houston. Lopez, 28, pressed the action throughout, stalking Williams around the ring with his jab and repeatedly pinned him against the ropes while unloading combinations to the head and body. Williams, 34, appeared intent on fighting on survival mode from the outset and offered little in terms of offense save a few lunging jabs and sporadic counter punches. Lopez picked up the pace in the final round hoping to score a knockout, but Williams covered up well and successfully blocked or evaded the most damaging blows. (more…)
