Broner-Mayweather drama on tap for D.C.

Adrien Broner vs. Ashley Theophane fighter media workouts were cancelled on Tuesday in Washington, D.C., due to the delayed arrival of flights out of Las Vegas. We’ve been told the remaining fight week activities will go on as scheduled, starting with today’s final press conference. It was also confirmed that Floyd Mayweather WILL attend the press conference, which will the first meeting between Broner and Mayweather since Broner’s wild rant against Floyd last week.

In other Broner news, according to the Washington Post there is no threat of D.C. police arresting Broner for an outstanding felony warrant issued in his home state of Ohio. So the Spike TV-televised bout looks to be a go.

David Haye opponent named: Arnold Gjergjaj

Former two-weight world champion David Haye today announced that he will face undefeated Arnold ‘The Cobra’ Gjergjaj on Saturday May 21 at The O2 in London as he continues his journey back to the summit the heavyweight division.

The Hayemaker returns to the ring for the first time since January 16 when more than 16,000 spectators packed into The O2 to witness him deliver a signature right hand to KO top 10 WBA ranked Mark de Mori. The fight lasted just 121 seconds in what was Haye’s eighth first round KO of his professional career and 25th knockout in his 27 professional wins.

Haye now turns his attentions to the 31 year old Kosovo-Albanian who has amassed an impressive record of 29-0, with 21 of those wins coming via knockout. ‘The Cobra’ stands at 6 foot 5 inches tall and most recently tipped the scales at 247 lbs. (more…)

Lucas Browne Update

Statement by Lucas Browne:

I made clear to the public last week that I intended to do all that I can to clear my name after the devastating news of the positive drug test following my successful defeat of Ruslan Chagaev for the WBA Heavyweight World Championship.

I am now able to report to you that on February 29th shortly after having arrived in Chechnya I was subjected to a randomly timed drug test by VADA. This was a test of blood and urine. The post fight test was a urine only test. I would like to again stress it was myself and my team who requested the bout be subject to VADA testing.

I now hold clear and unequivocal evidence that this test was a negative test and shows clearly that I arrived in Chechnya a clean athlete. Hatton Promotions have made this information available to the media today. (more…)

Tapia-Lemieux Teleconference Quotes

By Dave Spencer

Oscar De La Hoya: It’s a make or break fight for both guys. Glenn Tapia has to go out there & prove he belongs with best of the division. It’s a fight both have to win. The loser will have to shake himself of and will have to rebuild. We as promoters believe in our fighters. The winner moves on to bigger fights and the loser will have to go back to the drawing board.

David Lemieux: Everything happens for a reason. Looking at it now maybe it was the best thing that De La Rosa didn’t take the last fight. I could have injured him badly if he’s entering the ring and not too sure. I would have been tremendously strong in that fight and I’m going to be tremendously strong in the future.

I’m a knockout artist and it’s the way I fight. I’m not going to lie to you and say I’m going to come in and play around. Obviously I’m going to come in and throw some hard shots, and if my shots connect, they hurt. I’m going in there to win every round and be the best I can be. (more…)

Top Rank Celebrates Bob Arum’s Golden Anniversary in Boxing With Commemorative Video

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum’s first promotion which also happened to be the first fight he ever saw live. March 29, 1966 was the date. Maple Leafs Garden in Toronto, Canada was the site. Muhammad Ali vs. George Chuvalo for the heavyweight championship of the world was the fight. An Arumesque beginning, if ever there was one, for boxing’s most iconic promoter.

In a career that has spanned six decades, Bob has presented world championship events on every continent other than Antarctica. And to paraphrase the slogan from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Bob has promoted “more stars than there are in heaven.” The names read like a who’s who for the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

IBF super middleweight world champion James DeGale held an open media workout on Tuesday in London as he prepares to make the second defense of his title against mandatory challenger Rogelio “Porky” Medina on Saturday, April 30, live on SHOWTIME from the DC Armory in Washington, D.C.

The winner will face the winner between Badou Jack and Lucian Bute, who battle for the WBC title on the same card.

“I’ve never disrespected an opponent yet in the ring and I’m not going to start now,” said DeGale. “Medina has a very good record and that means he is as dangerous and the next man. This is boxing and unless you prepare properly you get found out. I’m not going down that avenue. I’m a winner and what I do is get in the ring and win. That’s what Medina is up against – a world champion and a winner. (more…)

The 12th Round

By Mauricio Sulaiman – WBC President

I am honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to share, through this column at Fightnews.com®, many of the day to day happenings and general information about the boxing world and the WBC. The sole intention of this venture is to have a forum to share the role and extensive activities of a boxing governing organization with the criteria and rationale behind the decisions that are often unknown to the public.

I am not a writer, reporter or journalist, so I will do my best effort to have this column written as clear, as short and concise as possible.

Boxing is one of the greatest sports, it has been practiced since the creation, it was a founding sport of the Ancient Olympic games in Greece and modern boxing has been know to be divided into Amateur boxing and Professional boxing. Amateur is the practice of the sport by novice fighters for recreation and also for organized competition with the ultimate goal to participate in the Olympic games and win a medal for one’s country. Professional, on the other hand, is the activity in which boxers fight to earn money with the ultimate goal to become world champions. (more…)

Andre Ward talked after his fight with Sullivan Barrera about being effective and efficient with his energy – his physical and mental energy.

Ward (29-0, 15 KOs), who has talked about being more efficient and selective with his movement and energy in the ring, said it felt right in the moment to start out flat-footed and keep some distance from Barrera (17-1, 12 KOs).

“It’s what felt comfortable at the time,” the 32-year-old said. “He’s a big guy and a big puncher and I respect him and that’s what felt good to me in the beginning. I started moving more, but being smart about it; I’ve taken care of myself and I haven’t been in hard fights, but I’m not 25 and I have to respect that.” (more…)
