Klitschko-Briggs a possibility

Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko may face nemesis Shannon Briggs in his next fight. “I want what the fans want, also Briggs,” stated Klitschko. In a poll by German media giant BILD, 72% of respondents stated they want to see Klitschko face Briggs and Wlad’s manager Bernd Bönte told RTL that Klitschko-Briggs “isn’t entirely excluded.”

The 42-year-old Briggs, who is currently rated WBA #7, has been stalking the Klitschko around the globe, twice confronting him in the gym, at press conferences, at a restaurant and even on the open sea, generating millions of views on YouTube in the process. Last week in Germany Briggs disrupted Wladimir’s press training, but was prevented by security from direct contact with the champ.

Quebec loses another main event

By Dave Spencer

Another Canadian main event knocked out within hours of each other. After losing Lucian Bute as the headliner for December 6th at the Bell Centre, Friday’s card in Sorel Quebec that was to have featured super-middleweight Schiller Hyppolite (13-1 9KO) fight for a pair of vacant belts (IBF North American and WBC Continental Americas) has also lost its marquee matchup. Hyppolite’s opponent Alan Campa (10-1 7KO) reportedly could not make arrangements to make it into Canada. Hyppolite had just entered the rankings at #15 (IBF) and was hoped that this fight would solidified that position and move him up even further. The Eye of the Tiger Management card is still going forward featuring fights from lightweight Mick Gadbois and 140-pounder David Theroux.

Bute out for December debut with Roach

By Dave Spencer

Former super-middleweight champion Lucian Bute (31-2 24KO) debut under new trainer Freddie Roach set for December 6th in Montreal has been washed-out owing to a back injury suffered in sparring by the Romanian fighter. Bute was to have faced Roberto Bolonti (35-3 24KO) of Argentina as the headliner at the Bell Centre, a spot that will now feature Jean Pascal (29-2-1 17KO) battling Donovan George (25-4-2 22KO) as the marquee matchup.

“It’s a case of bad luck,” said Bute’s promoter Jean Bedard of Interbox of the injury that took place in Macau China where Roach is readying Manny Pacquiao for this Saturday. “When he decided to stay in boxing (after loss to Jean Pascal) we said that next time he came to fight he would be 100% ready. They judged that this injury that occurred during sparring that he wouldn’t be able to train for two weeks. It would be dangerous not having him at 100% so we decided it would not be a good idea to get into the ring. What I understand is that he will be able to fight at the beginning of 2015.”

Cleverly: I have too many strengths for Bellew

Nathan Cleverly says Tony Bellew cannot handle his all-round ability and that will be the key to victory when they meet at the sold-out Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday night. “A lot of people have him as the favourite because he’s the naturally bigger guy,” said Cleverly. “He is heavy handed, apparently, so they think that is too much of a jump for me and it is a big jump. I’m up against it but I am confident. I know my own body, I know what I can do. Mentally and physically, I know my limits and I know that I can beat this guy at Cruiserweight. I feel comfortable, strong, sharp and fit. I’ll beat this guy. I’ve got too many strengths and I’ll bring everything I’ve learned from the lighter divisions up to Cruiserweight. I’ll bring the speed, I’ll bring the stamina. He can bring his power – I’ve already tested it and I’ve taken it with ease. It will be no different at Cruiserweight.” (more…)

For the switch-hitting Dirrell, the elimination bout for the IBF’s #2 position behind #1 James DeGale and champion Carl Froch will be his first start on Showtime and fifth overall since getting injured against then-undefeated Arthur Abraham in his second Super Six World Boxing Classic fight on SHOWTIME on March 27, 2010.

About a minute into the round, Dirrell slipped on a wet canvas and Abraham blatantly hit him while he was down, knocking Dirrell out cold and resulting in Abraham being disqualified.
