Froch-Mack Press Conference

Carl Froch has warned Yusaf Mack that he will be in for a rough night in Nottingham as he challenges for Froch’s IBF super middleweight title on November 17. The Cobra met Mack for the first time in a press conference at the Arena where five months ago he ripped the IBF title from unbeaten Lucian Bute with a stunning fifth round stoppage. Froch has vowed to put thoughts of a rematch with the Canadian and a future bout with old foe Mikkel Kessler to one side as he prepares for his 15th contest in the Arena against the Philadelphian.

Carl Froch: After beating Lucian I feel like I’m back on top of the World. I’m in great shape, I’m running faster than ever. I am breaking records in training and I’m surprising myself, so at 35 I feel like I’m at my peak and that there’s plenty more to come. People have been asking me when I plan to hang the gloves up – a year, 18 months – I’m not going to out a time frame on it, as long as I have the desire to keep getting up and doing the hard training which I have, then I’m still going to be going. He’s coming over to the lion’s den and there’s only going to be one winner – I’ll do whatever I can to put Yusaf Mack on his back.

Yusaf Mack: I’m here to give a champion the fight of his life. Come fight night, its going down. I’m back at my preferred weight and I’m not coming to England to lay down.

Although the bout went the distance, Valenzuela never was in the fight. The scorecards read 60-54 across the board.

In the main event unbeaten Haskell Rhodes of Oklahoma now (11-0, 6 KOs) stopped Alejandro Lopez (5-5, 1 KO) in round one. The normally durable Lopez had previously never been stopped inside the distance.

Wladimir Klitschko: Emanuel Steward is still my coach and my friend and that will NEVER change!

Statement from Wladimir Klitschko regarding his trainer Emanuel Steward, who is recovering from stomach surgery and not able to train Wlad for his November 10 defense against Mariusz Wach at the
O2 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany:

I don’t understand why some so-called “friendly people,” for instance the coach of Wach, are burying Emanuel Steward and my career simply because Emanuel is not physically at my training camp and may not be at my fight. Emanuel is my man and always will be. He is still my lead coach even if he is not actually present at the start of camp and may not be at the fight (which is not 100% confirmed yet).

Only Emanuel, my team and I know how the two of us work to prepare for a fight as well as all of our work over the last 9 years.

What I will tell you about our work together is that the most important part is just talking. Talking about boxing and strategy. We talk a lot!!! What do they think? We can’t continue doing this? Thanks to modern technology we can and will. My entire team, including Emanuel, will stay the same with NO changes!

The family, friends and fans around the world all wish Emanuel Steward a fast recovery and I’m sure he’ll be back in the ring as a coach and as an analyst on the HBO boxing broadcast that he enjoys so much!

In the end, I have a short message to the “friendly people” I mentioned above…..

Back off and show some respect! Stop trying to bury the man alive! Emanuel Steward is still my coach and my friend and that will NEVER change! I’m looking forward seeing you all in the ring on November 10th!

Preview: UFC 153-Silva vs. Bonnar

Preview by Anthony Springer Jr

“There’s nothing wrong with fun fights.” – Dana White, UFC president.

Let me be perfectly clear, the Anderson Silva-Stephan Bonnar main event at this weekend’s UFC 153 is going to be a pretty damn entertaining fight. It will be “fun” in the same way watching Mike Tyson maul opponents in his prime (and the subsequent bouts that followed his release from jail) was fun – and well worth the price of pay-per-view, because watching people get knocked senseless is pretty damn entertaining when you throw in alcohol, food and friends.
