The body of former world champion Edwin Valero was exhumed Thursday morning from his final resting place in El Vigia, Venezuela as authorities took samples which can determine whether Valero’s death was by his own hand or some other means.

Ramsey: Ngoudjo a monster

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

Fightnews caught up with Hermann Ngoudjo’s (18-3-0, 10KO), trainer Marc Ramsay by telephone, shortly after his fighter stepped off the scale at an even 140, same as opponent, former world champion Julio Diaz (36-6-0, 26KO). The pair will face off tonight in Primm Nevada in a fight that will air on ESPN Friday Night Fights and be broadcast live in Canada. “We had a very good training camp and I’m expecting a very good performance,” said Ramsay who is now in his second fight as chief second to the two-time world title challenger. “Physically he was a monster in training camp. I’m not only expecting a win, I’m expecting a great win and good performance for everybody watching to show that he is back and prove that he belongs at the top of the division.”

Khan-Malignaggi Presser Report

By Matt Richardson

Paulie Malignaggi is the first to admit he didn’t think he would be getting another title shot. Not after fighting so poorly in defense of his old junior welterweight belt against Lovemore N’Dou in 2008. Not after losing it when he was dominated and stopped by Ricky Hatton later that year. And certainly not after controversially losing a close encounter with former titleholder Juan Diaz last summer. But yet there he was on Wednesday morning at Madison Square Garden, spouting off at the podium for his final press conference prior to his second title shot this weekend against WBA belt holder Amir Khan. The fight will be televised live from the theater at the Garden on HBO on Saturday night. For more details and photos click here…

People don’t realize that this victory over the candidate that he beat was a tremendous upset that very few people expected him to pull off. His opponent’s family holds all of the major businesses in this province. All the mayors and the congressman in the province are either related to this family belong to the family or are associates of the family.

Ward, Green want drug testing

Jan Sanders/Goossen Tutor

By Robert Hough

Andre Ward (20-0, 13 KOs) and Allan Green (29-1, 20 KOs) said at a press conference Wednesday that they both support Olympic-style drug testing before their June 19 fight for Ward’s WBA title. The super-middleweights meet in Oakland, Calif., to conclude the Super Six World Boxing Classic’s second round. Dan Goossen, Ward’s promoter, supports the proposal and said he would discuss it with Lou DiBella, who promotes Green. Green, who appeared at the Oakland press conference via a video stream from Miami, Fla., said it would have hurt his training in nearby Fort Lauderdale to travel across the country and back for the event. Green, who replaces Jermain Taylor in Showtime’s tournament, has been boisterous in the pre-fight build-up, but the Tulsa, Okla., native and resident was low-key and quick to compliment Ward.
