Andre “S.O.G.” Ward acts like a man who’s seen the future and liked what he saw – much as the present is a snarled mess of legal disputes and no fights on the horizon.

Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) and promoter Dan Goossen are battling in court and have sharply disagreed about essentially everything, from the promoter’s level of effort to make fights and the super middleweight’s willingness to accept offers.

“I’m going to get what I’m supposed to get,” Ward said while sitting on the ring apron in his San Francisco Bay Area gym, looking and sounding supremely serene. “I have faith and I’m confident.” (more…)

“This is must win fight for Dereck, no two ways about it, he knows it and I know it, we can’t come off second best,” said Charles. (more…)

Battling up the ranks in mixed martial arts is a difficult process in itself, and carving out a place on the UFC roster is a goal every fighter strives to make good on.

Alcine-Rodriguez Full Report

By Dave Spencer

Montreal dusted off a relic as moth-balled Olympic Stadium provided the venue for this past weeks ESPN Friday Night Fights and a couple of veteran fighters hoped for an impressive showing to move forward with their careers. Turns out both Joachim Alcine (35-7-2 21KO) and Delvin Rodriguez (28-7-4 16KO) will live to see another day as the pair fought to a ten round draw in a battle in which both sides thought they had done enough to win.

Judge Jack Woodburn saw things for the hometown fighter Alcine with a 96-94 scorecard while Benoit Roussel scored the action for the visiting Rodriguez, 97-93. Judge Pasquale Procopio scored things even at 95-95.

The decision did not sit well with Rodriguez particularly. “I still believe I won the fight cleanly. He never caught me with a clean punch and was never able to hurt me,” said the veteran who was making his record 17th appearance on the ESPN telecast. (more…)

Nelson-St. John Full Report

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside
Photo: Lee Love

In front of a raucous, partisan crowd at the Northern Virginia Community College’s Ernst Center in Annandale, VA. Tori “Sho Nuff” Nelson of Ashburn, VA successfully defended her WIBA Welterweight championship with a second-round TKO over former world champion Mia “The Knockout” St. John of Oxnard, CA. Nelson was truly the aggressor throughout the contest, landing her left hand repeatedly. Early in the second round, Nelson landed a crushing left hand that sent St. John on wobbly legs. The bout was stopped at the 42-second mark of the second round when referee Steve Smoger deemed St. John unfit to continue.

“I was shocked,” Nelson said when asked whether she was surprised at the outcome. “She came to me aggressively and I was used to that because I spar with boys so I just reacted and that’s what happened.”

Nelson scores her first professional knockout and remains undefeated at 9-0-3, one KO. St. John falls to 47-14-2, 18 KOs. (more…)
