A purse bid was held today at WBC Headquarters in Mexico City, Mexico for the right to promote a WBC light heavyweight silver championship title bout between former WBC 175 lb World champion Adrian “The Shark” Diaconu (27-2-0, 15 KO) from Romania/Canada and Chris “Hard Hittin’” Henry (25-2-0, 20 KO) from Houston, Texas.

Witter on move to welterweight

On February 19th at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, former WBC junior welterweight world champion Junior “The Hitter” Witter (37-3-2, 22 KOs) returns for the first time since losing to Devon Alexander in an August 2009 WBC 140lb title fight. Witter faces Victor Lupo (18-1-2, 9 KOs) in a ten round welterweight clash. “It got to the point where just making the weight took it all out of me,” said Witter. “Imagine getting into the ring with guys like Timothy Bradley and Devon Alexander, and having nothing left? That’s what 140 was doing to me. Now, instead of battling weight during camp, then dragging myself into the ring, I’m strong, refreshed and able to concentrate more on domination, and less on starvation.”

M Hatton ready for Canelo

European welterweight champion Matthew Hatton has commented on March 5 clash with undefeated Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on March 5 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. “There is a lot of hype surrounding Alvarez and a lot of knowledgeable people are tipping him for greatness,” stated the younger brother of Ricky Hatton. “It is a big step up in class for me, but I have proven myself at European level and I am ready to move on.

“So many fighters say they want to face the best, but when the opportunity comes along their mouths go dry, but this is what I am all about. I will take on all-comers and the experience I have of fighting in big Las Vegas bills on my brother’s undercard will be a great help. I am going there to win and prove that I belong in world class. I know that Saul is the house fighter, but Golden Boy Promotions are very fair people and I have some good friends there so I know we will be looked after. A lot of fighters spend weeks in America before a fight, but I will do all my hard training in our Hatton Health and Fitness facility.”

Matthew and trainer Bob Shannon will fly out to California ten days before the clash, and Ricky Hatton will be at ringside cheering for him on fight night.
