Standing room only tickets made available for last Roseland Ballroom show

Tomorrow evening with be a bittersweet night for Lou DiBella and his company DiBella Entertainment. The promotional company will host the premiere installment of the 2014 Broadway Boxing series with the final boxing show ever to take place at NYC’s famed and historic Roseland Ballroom. Having promoted a number of cards at the venue over the years and helping to grow the Broadway Boxing series into what it is today, the historic ballroom will be closing its doors in April after more than 50 years of operation at its current location.

The card, entitled “The Last Dance,” has had such a positive response with New York boxing’s adoring fan base that DBE has had to open up more seats at the last minute to accommodate the flood of calls and requests coming in for tickets. General admission standing room only tickets, priced at $35, will now be available at the door tomorrow evening. Doors open at 6 p.m. ET, with the first bout scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.

Melson keeps fighting

154-pounder will fight Wednesday night while continuing to campaign for spinal injury cord research

BOXING: Boyd Melson vs Khalik MemmingerBy Matt Richardson
Photos by Ed Mulholland

Junior middleweight Boyd Melson has a fight scheduled for tomorrow night at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan against Donald Ward. It’s a fight that Melson (13-1-1, 4 KO’s) says he expects will be difficult, despite Ward being a late replacement for veteran Mike Ruiz. It’s a fight, however, that’s relatively small in relation to the one Melson fights on a daily basis.

That’s because Melson, an Army captain in the U.S. Army Reserves, is also battling a much tougher foe: spinal cord injuries. As a boxer who donates his full purses to spinal cord research, it’s easy to say he has a dog in this fight and it’s one where he’s continuing to punch, despite the odds. (more…)

No mid-life crisis for Road Warrior. He wants Hopkins or fourth fight with Woods!

GlenJohnson002By Matt Thompson

A mid-life crisis for a fighter happens a lot earlier than for an accountant, but at 45 years young, the ageless “Road Warrior” Glen Johnson has been reflecting on his 21-year career.

Coming off two wins, including a one-sided boxing clinic over cruiserweight Bobby Gunn (25-5-1) in December, Johnson feels he is still not at the end of the road yet.

“Some fighters, they get old because of the way they live,” explains the always amiable Johnson from his Miami home, a few weeks after his 45th birthday. “I never drank or smoked, I’ve never used drugs, never got fat between fights. If I fight on Saturday, I’m back in the gym on Tuesday. I love training. This is my job, my vocation, and I work at it and have always tried to conduct myself as a professional in and out of the ring.” (more…)

Mauricio Sulaiman expected to be elected new WBC president today

By Gabriel F. Cordero

It’s not a secret that the most qualified successor to the presidency of the World Boxing Council is Mauricio Sulaiman, replacing his recently deceased father Jose Sulaiman. Mauricio has lived his whole life around ring legends like Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, George Foreman and Joe Frazier among the many world champions with which his father had a relationship beyond boxing. He has many years of working with boxers, referees, judges, commissioners, trainers, managers, promoters, press media and sponsors under the tutelage of his father who held the post for the past 38 years years since taking WBC presidency in 1975.

The WBC is not a family business. It’s an organization formed by more than 200 people headquartered in Mexico City with work in areas such as technology, television, legal, media, medical, marketing, historical archiving, logistics and social work. (more…)

Dulorme makes promotional changes, will continue with Gary Shaw

Junior welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme (20-1, 14 KOs) from Puerto Rico not only moved his training camp to Oxnard , California under the tutelage of Robert Garcia, but he also made some changes on a promotional level. Of the three promoters Dulorme signed with in 2010, a.k.a. “Team Puerto Rico” consisting of DiBella Entertainment, Universal Promotions and Gary Shaw Productions, only Shaw will continue with the boxer.

“I bought the parts of my contract that belonged to Lou DiBella and Javier Bustillo, but Gary Shaw stays in,” Dulorme said, “I felt that lately those businesses were not going well, and I had to do something about it, but this is nothing personal against DiBella and Bustillo because they have been very important in my career and I learned a lot from them but still, this is just plain business.” (more…)
