Shaw comments on Tarver situation

Promoter Gary Shaw is concerned about the damage done in the sport of boxing after the news Friday that Antonio Tarver tested positive for a banned substance in a pre-fight drug test conducted by the California State Athletic Commission before his fight with Lateef Kayode. “It’s very worrisome where our sport is heading these days with the recent array of fighters testing positive for banned substances,” Shaw said. “With all these fights being canceled its killing the sport and I hope the networks are not going to lose interest. As promoters, we do our best to make sure everyone is abiding by the rules. I’m happy that the commissions are stepping up their stance on catching fighters cheating because the safety of the fighter should always come first. It’s unfortunate that in Lateef Kayode’s first major opportunity, he had to fight on what appears to be an unlevel playing field.” (more…)

Tarver issues statement

Regarding the California State Athletic Commission positive test against Antonio Tarver for use of a anabolic steroid against Lateef Kayode on June 2, Tarver has issued the following statement:

“I have always been a proponent of a clean sport and an advocate for the most rigorous drug testing in boxing. The positive test results came as a complete surprise to me today.

Chisora vows to end Haye’s career

Heavyweight Dereck Chisora says he’ll retire former cruiserweight and heavyweight world champion David Haye when they meet in their grudge fight next month. “I’ll be taking Haye out of the game, this will be his last fight in boxing and he can forgot about fighting any Klitschko again,” said Chisora. “Wladimir played with him for twelve rounds, the difference is I’ll be punishing him for twelve rounds and giving him the worst beating he’s had. I’ll destroy him. He’ll need more than one of his ‘Hayemakers’ to stop me coming at him that night.”

Chisora stated that he refuses to lose to his London rival and that his pride and fighting heart will break Haye down. “There’s too much pride on the line, there’s no way I’m going to lose to Haye. I’m going to break Haye down mentally and physically, he’s all mouth and he now knows that he’s in a real fight against me. What’s he going to do when he lands his best punches and they have no effect and I’m still in his face throwing punches?”

WBA Executive Vice President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza will take into consideration the weak attendance at recent boxing events and the lack of strong fighters in the country at the moment. According to the source, Mendoza will have private separate meetings this week with local promoter Rogelio Espiño and Sampson Lewcowicz and next week there could be an official statement about WBA featherweight world champion Celestino Caballero in the situation of his mandatory defense against Mikey Garcia.

There is also a possibility that a WBA KO Drugs event could take place in Jamaica with local fighter Nicolas Walters fighting for a WBA interim title.

Josesito: I want to spoil everything for Ortiz

By Francisco Salazar
Photo: German Villasenor

Josesito Lopez has not stepped inside the ring yet against Victor Ortiz. He will do so on Saturday night at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, CA. However, Lopez thinks that Ortiz has landed a significant blow against him within the last couple of weeks. It was not a left cross or right hook by the southpaw Ortiz. Instead, it was the announcement that Ortiz will fight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. That did not sit well with the normally soft-spoken Lopez, who felt slighted by the actions of Golden Boy Promotions, who promotes Ortiz.

However, Lopez is not going to sulk or complain. Instead, he is preparing for this fight, which he admits is the biggest fight of his career and he is ready to shock the world on Saturday night. (more…)

Famed boxing artist LeRoy Neiman remembered

By Richard T. Slone

I was extremely saddened to get the call that iconic artist LeRoy Neiman had died, aged 91, in New York City. I was first introduced to LeRoy when I was 16 years old through my then boxing trainer Smokin’ Joe Frazier. LeRoy was intrigued that I was an amateur boxer and also an artist. Once he saw my art his eyes lit up and in the many years I’d see him since, he kept up with my career and he always had kind words with sincere encouragement. I know we shared the same passion for boxing and I think he liked that.

LeRoy Neiman loved boxing and boxing loved LeRoy Neiman. He had a great passion for the fight game. He admired boxers more than any other athlete or celebrity and I think his love of the sport is very evident by simply looking at his timeless boxing paintings. (more…)
