Allan Green Camp Notes

June 19 Super Six World Boxing Classic

Howard Schatz

Allan Green is in the tapering -down stage of training camp now, with less than 9 days before his WBA title bout with Andre Ward. He’s  very confident about his training camp and preparation for his title fight, which will air live on SHOWTIME® Saturday, June 19 at 10:00 pm ET/PT (delayed on the west coast) from the Oracle Arena  in Oakland, Calif.  

For most fighters a normal training camp can last anywhere from 6-8 weeks at a remote training facility far from home to limit distractions. But for Allan Green that has not always been the situation. Most of the time he has taken fights on late notice anywhere from 3-4 weeks, which means he always had to be ready and stay in some kind of shape. For his upcoming fight with Andre Ward he’s had  7 weeks to concentrate, prepared and focus on one fight and it has made a huge difference. (more…)

Andre Ward: Lakers in 6!

By Robert Hough
Photo by Laura De la Torre

Super middleweight Andre Ward has learned over the years that training for a fight doesn’t mean “living like a caveman and staring at a wall to focus on a fight.” Ward, who fights Allan Green on June 19 in Oakland, Calif., to close out the second round of the Super Six World Boxing Classic, said at a public workout that he balances fight preparation with relaxation–which these days includes watching the NBA Finals. Ward predicted that the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics will split the next two games in Boston and when the series returns to Los Angeles, the Lakers, up 2-1 in the best-of-7 series, will win the title.

Mundine recently told the media in Australia that he is the only boxer who can beat Floyd Mayweather. I worked with Floyd as his sparring partner and I can promise Mundine he would not go five rounds with the boxer I regard as the best pound for pound boxer in the world.” Ndou added, “I will take Mundine to school and stop him inside eight rounds.”

Ricky Hatton says he’s a big fan of the one night series of Prizefighter tournaments taking place in the U.K.“ It’s an absolutely fantastic event – the mix of underdogs and kids against the fighters having their last shot at glory is sensational stuff,” said Hatton. “It’s only three rounds so tactics go out the window and you have to give it hell for leather…it’s great for a young prospect because he might have to fight a former champion with experience and I love that – I think that’s fantastic, it’s a great idea.” The next event is Prizefighter Super Middleweights on June 30.

New Faces: Alexei Acosta

Brian Peters Promotions

By Robert Coster

Among the young prospects to watch in 2010 is 22-year-old junior featherweight Alexei Acosta (10-0, 10 KOs). A former member of the Cuban amateur national team, Acosta is part of a trio of transplanted boxers from the Caribbean Islands who lives and fights out of Cork, Ireland which is admittedly an unusual arrangement. “I have no complaints about fighting in Ireland,” says Alexei in fluent Irish-tinged English. “The country is great and so are the boxing fans. The only problem is the weather, a far cry from Cuba.” (more…)

Cunningham headed to Canastota

Photo Wende

Newly-crowned IBF cruiserweight champion Steve “USS” Cunningham will travel to Canastota, NY this weekend to attend the Hall of Fame Induction Festivities. The 33-year-old regained his old title last Saturday when he stopped Troy Ross in his first fight under the promotional banner of Team Sauerland. Legendary German promoter Wilfried Sauerland is among the “Class of 2010” alongside Jung-Koo Chang (South Korea), featherweight champion Danny “Little Red” Lopez (USA), manager Shelly Finkel (USA), referee / commissioner Larry Hazzard (USA), matchmaker Bruce Trampler (USA) and journalist Ed Schuyler (USA). “I am thrilled to return to Canastota,” said Cunningham, who will be joined by his manager/wife Livvy. “There is nothing like the Hall of Fame Weekend. We will celebrate Mr. Sauerland´s induction and my victory over Ross in style before going back to the gym soon.”
——
While in Canastota, Cunningham will come face to face with WBO cruiserweight champion Marco “Captain” Huck, who will also travel from Germany. Cunningham, of course, handed Huck his only loss to date, stopping him in the 12th round of their IBF Title fight in Germany in December 2007.
