Lawsuit sheds light on Broner situation

In addition to felonious assault and aggravated robbery charges, WBA super lightweight world champion Adrien Broner is also facing a civil lawsuit from the man he allegedly beat up and robbed. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the lawsuit claims Broner lost $8,000 cash plus $6,000 in credit on bowling wagers to an acquaintance at a Cincinnati bowling alley. Then, according to the lawsuit, later that night Broner and a posse of eight men were waiting for the man outside, and Broner allegedly threatened the man with a gun, then knocked him unconscious. When he woke up, the victim claims $12,000 in cash was missing. The Enquirer also reports that Broner isn’t in custody although he is wanted by police.

On Wednesday, March 23, Roc Nation Sports hosted the final press conference for two-time world champion Andre Ward (28-0, 15 KOs) against IBF #1 light heavyweight contender Sullivan Barrera (17-0, 12 KOs) on HBO Saturday night at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

Andre Ward: It’s very simple to me…anybody who knows me, they know how I work and they know how I tick. I don’t get caught up in what’s next. I don’t get caught up in what people are saying. I’m aware of what is being said. I know what my opponent has been saying and I take him at his word. I’ve done everything that I’m supposed to do, like I always do and like I’ve done the last 10 years of my career. I’ve taken on the best… if it’s not another champion then it’s a top contender… and this is no different. You guys just know that I’m focused and locked in like I always am. I’m prepared and I’m ready for war come March 26.

Sullivan Barrera: I promise everyone who comes to the arena that I have had great preparation and this is a great dream. On that night, I’ll have a great show for everyone. (more…)

Broner Accused of Violent Robbery w/Gun

Warrant issued for arrest...Theophane fight in jeopardy?

By TMZSports.com

WBA super lightweight world champion Adrien Broner is a wanted man — after allegedly beating the crap out of a guy outside a Cincinnati bowling alley in a violent robbery with a gun … TMZ Sports has learned. A source with knowledge of the incident confirms … Broner has been charged with felonious assault and aggravated robbery and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Multiple sources connected to the case tell us the incident in question went down around 3:30 AM on January 21st — after Broner and another man had been making high stakes bets with each other at the lanes.

The alleged victim told police … Broner had lost thousands of dollars in bowling bets and was pissed when the alleged victim decided to call it a night and go home with his winnings.

Our sources say … the man claims Broner waited for him outside of the alley and punched him in the face and neck — nearly knocking the man out cold.

The alleged victim told cops Broner went to his car and got a gun at one point — and when he came back, he forcibly took all the money in the man’s wallet … a ton of cash.

We’re told the alleged victim was hospitalized — and needed stitches to close a gash on his chin.

We reached out to Broner and his camp multiple times for comment — so far, no word back.

WBA super lightweight world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner gave a training camp update and discussed his world title defense against Ashley “The Treasure” Theophane that headlines PBC on Spike on April 1 from the DC Armory in Washington, D.C.

“I love training camp in D.C. because it takes me out of my element. I can get rid of the distractions and focus on boxing. The team we have down here brings the best out of me…I know it’s going to be an electrifying atmosphere with a huge crowd. I’m coming to put on a show. I know that Ashley Theophane is coming to win. He’s not coming to lay down, but we’re ready for anything he can bring.”

[On his loss to Shawn Porter] “Everybody has bad nights. The Porter fight was just one of my bad nights. But we’re back on track, we’re back to being a world champion and I will stay champion after April 1. It’s going to be a fantastic show.”

Glowacki: I want a brawl for the fans

By Przemek Garczarczyk

“Of course, I’m excited because this is my first world title defense. It’s a great stage being on NBC with Cunningham, a fighter who likes to mix it up, in front of me,” said WBO cruiserweight champion Krzysztof “The Head” Głowacki. On April 16 in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Glowacki (25-0, 16 KOs) wants to continue his undefeated streak versus former champion Steve “USS” Cunningham (28-7, 13 KOs). Glowacki’s KO victory over Marco Huck was one of the best bouts of 2015. “I’m happy to be back in the U.S., happy to showcase my skills in front of my great fans, and I hope – as always – that my fight will be a boxing war. I want a brawl for the fans. I’m already trying that style with my sparring partners,” added Glowacki, who will finish his training camp next week to arrive early in NYC.

Ward Enjoys Fresh Inspiration as the Years Roll By

By Robert Hough

Andre Ward’s finding motivation in new challenges and fresh inspiration in what he calls the homestretch of his career.

The 32-year-old, who makes his light-heavyweight debut in Oakland, Calif., Saturday against Sullivan Barrera (17-0, 12 KOs) and hopes to fight three times this year, marveled that more than a decade’s gone by since his pro debut, talked about learning from his historically successful and beloved Golden State Warriors, how he got to 175 pounds, a hair style that hides an ever-so-slightly receding hairline.

“It’s crazy to think that the Olympics were 12 years ago,” said Ward (28-0, 15 KOs), who wants to fight elite light-heavyweight Sergey Kovalev toward the end of 2016 after a summer fight. “So much has happened, not just with me and boxing, but in my life, in my family’s life.” (more…)

Former world champions “Vicious” Victor Ortiz (31-5-2, 24 KOs) of Oxnard and Andre “The Beast” Berto (30-4, 23 KOs) of Winter Haven, Florida held a press conference Wednesday afternoon at the Conga Room at LA Live in Los Angeles for their rematch taking place April 30 at Stub Hub Center in Carson, California in the next series of Premier Boxing Champions on FOX.

Andre Berto: “The fight back in 2011, he got me. He did what he had to do to win. But this time I’m going in extremely focused and ready to take everything that I felt he took from me that night. I went to school. I failed the test and now I have the chance to ace it…This is what he asked for. So I want to make sure he knows what he’s getting himself into. This isn’t the same situation as last time. So we’ll see it in the ring. Come out on April 30 and see me handle this business.”

Victor Ortiz: “Berto blames me for his downward spiral. He thinks he has a chance this time. Always a good dream to have. I’m not going the distance this time. I’m going in 100 miles per hour, full throttle. 2011 was one heck of a year. The repeat is coming on April 30 because I want another world championship. Berto is a tremendous warrior; I’ll give him that. I’ll be ready and I know he will be too.”

Shortly after the photo face-off Ortiz and Berto had words as suddenly Berto shoved Ortiz. The two fighters were immediately separated as the fighters continued to jaw at each other. (more…)

Philly Lightweight Legend Dorsey Lay Passes at 91

Story & photo by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

The last remaining boxing legend of Philadelphia’s golden era of the 1940’s passed away on March 17th. Dorsey Lay was a prominent lightweight boxer who competed in perhaps the finest era of 135-pounders, and compiled a professional record of 40-18-1, 17 KOs. Born in LaGrange, GA on December 31, 1924, Lay was 91 at the time of his death.

Lay was a fine amateur before turning pro, and placed second at the 1941 Mid-Atlantic AAU tournament, representing the Pomeroy School for Boys.

“I started boxing when I went to a boy’s school up in Pomeroy, Pennsylvania,” Lay remembered. “Mrs. Carter; she brought me up to Pomeroy. It was a lovely place. Fifty boys; you had to get along. We did farm work. We went to school there. We boxed in the field. All them boys up there, you had to protect yourself, learn something. She had about 50 boys up there.” (more…)

Do you really think this is Pacquiao’s last fight?

“I personally don’t know if this will be Manny’s last fight but he is training like it’s going to be his last fight. Manny has achieved so much in his boxing career and if this is going to be his swan song I know he wants to go out blazing with a spectacular performance. He’s pouring everything into this training. If the opportunity for a knockout presents itself during the fight, he’s going to go for it. He knows how to close the show and he wants this show closed with fireworks. He wants to finish the book on his boxing career with a spectacular ending.

As a trainer, would you say Pacquiao has more quality fights in him?

Two-time world champion Andre Ward, IBF #1 light heavyweight contender Sullivan Barrera, unbeaten featherweight Joseph “Jojo” Diaz Jr. and Jayson “La Maravilla” Velez participated today in a media workout ahead of their scheduled fights this Saturday at Oracle Arena in Oakland. Ward-Barrera and Diaz-Velez will bothbe televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing.

Andre Ward: “My brain has thanked me for these two years and my body has thanked me for these two years. Fighting at 175, I get to eat. I’m a little bit happier.”

Sullivan Barrera: “Andre Ward has his name and I’m fighting in his hometown so I have to have the knockout. I would have to even if we were fighting in Las Vegas. More than anything, I am determined to overcome this challenge.”

Joseph Diaz: “Camp’s been amazing. I’m as fast as ever and I feel stronger than ever. I’ve had an eight-week training camp and I had an easy time getting right down to the weight. I know Jayson’s ready — he’s looking good — and I’m ready, too.”

Jayson Velez: “The last three or four fights I would dominate the first three or four rounds and I’d run out of gas, but I’m training differently and I have a lot more stamina. It will be his speed versus my power and it’s Mexico versus Puerto Rico.”
