The old saying in boxing that nothing is done until both fighters are in the ring, proved to be true yet again – Odlanier Solis (18-1, 12 KO) will NOT be fighting Tomasz Adamek (47-2, 29 KO) in the main event of highly anticipated NBC event on December 22 in Bethelhem, Pennsylvania. Technically, Solis was never “in” for Adamek, because contracts between parties was never signed, but it was expected that this fight would happen as projected. In the next couple of days we should know who will be stepping in front of Adamek on December 22.
WBA and WBC jr welterweight champion Danny Garcia was awarded the Briscoe Award as “2011 Philly Fighter of the Year” at the 5th Annual Briscoe Awards. The Briscoe Awards are inspired by middleweight contender Bennie Briscoe, who is considered one of the best to never win a world title. Briscoe (66-24-5-1, 53 KOs) fought professionally from 1962 to 1982 and contended for the middleweight championship three times. This year Briscoe Awards were also delegated for “Philly Fighter of the Year” and “KO of the Year” (by a Philly fighter). In addition to the annual awards, former world bantamweight champion and living legend Jeff Chandler was presented with a new WBA championship belt and honored with a museum exhibit dedicated to his career.

Pound-for-pound kingpin Anderson Silva proved yet again why he is viewed as the very best fighter on the planet by easily dispatching with an overmatched Stephan Bonnar on Saturday night. It was absolutely a no-win situation for the champ. A loss to Bonnar would have been disastrous to his legacy. Even allowing Bonnar to survive into the second round, something that neither of Silva’s previous two 205-pound opponents did, would be fodder for his critics . . .

Last week native Brooklynite Paulie Malignaggi (31-4, 7 KOs) spoke to the media about defending his WBA welterweight championship against Pablo Cesar Cano on Saturday’s huge inaugural night of boxing from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Here are some highlights:
Your last fight was probably the most aggressive fight in your entire career. You came out there and you had a knockout. Do you have that same sense going into that fight as well?
You know, the last fight I didn’t really look to go for the knockout, it kind of just came. But that’s how I approach every fight. We’ve been working on a little bit more aggression in the gym with Eric Brown. I’ve always been a guy that had good legs and has been able to use my legs, but also develop an arsenal as far as things we can do to come forward as well and it will make me that much more of a well-rounded fighter. I just felt like I was able to step on the gas a little better when I needed to I can box when I need to, but if I need to come forward, if I start seeing my opponent weakening and I need to come forward, we can do that as well, or if there’s a lack of aggression on my opponent’s part I’ll be the one to come forward. I like to just be well-rounded. I like to have options. And the things we’ve been working on in the gym really give me those options, I can fight going forward and I can fight going backward and it’s a good thing for me. (more…)
“Firstly, I want to congratulate David Price and his team on executing his game-plan so effectively. I said I had prepared very well for this bout and it showed…I was in great shape and went out there with no fear, believing I could win it. I was really in the zone, didn’t get fazed by the crowd, or atmosphere and stay focused on the task. After 8 years, I finally had control of myself again.
“My whole game plan was about avoiding his right, so to get lined up like that is a disappointment for me. Father time has caught up with me, as I didn’t see the initial shot, so could not react. He finished me off like a good pro, so I have no complaints. I have a broken nose for my troubles, so I didn’t get away Scott free. (more…)
The hard-hitting Argentinean Luis Carlos Abregu (33-1, 27KO’s), is in the final stage of preparation for his fight back in the United States against the Boricua, Thomas Dulorme (16-0, 12KO’s).

Coming off his breakthrough victory over Amir Khan, Danny Garcia was poised for more mega fights against the best fighters in the world. But the fight the young champion from Philadelphia was given was another go-round with bona fide legend and future Hall of Famer Erik Morales, the man from whom Garcia won his first world title in March. No one should ever take a fighter like Morales for granted, but the rematch feels like a bit of housekeeping, a chore, that Garcia must endure before moving on with his career.
The problem is that Morales held his own against Garcia last time, and although he’ll be seven months older, he figures to be much better in the fight that appears to be his last hurrah. A stumble by Garcia would be a real setback for him, while another victory may feel like a lateral move. It’s a classic performance trap that Garcia must avoid. (more…)

The grudge match between highly favored Miguel Cartagena and Jose “Chilli” Rivera almost boiled over into an upset in the main event at Philadelphia’s National Guard Armory Friday night. Prohibitive favorite Cartagena let a hot head and months worth of anger make his first headline bout far more difficult than most expected it would be. Instead of using his superior boxing skills, Cartagena, 111.5 lbs, traded shots with the bigger Rivera, 115, most of the night, and had to hustle to keep his undefeated record intact. Rivera used his size and nothing-to-lose attitude to test the young prospect in a trench war that almost produced a shocker. However, down the stretch, Cartagena cooled off and nailed down the victory at the wire. He took the judge’s verdict, but it wasn’t easy. (more…)

Intended as a back-on-track fight for Ronnie “The Chosen One” Hearns, import Derrick Findley upset Hearns’ plans and may well have concluded it with a controversy-shrouded ending that left many in the crowd at the Taylor Sportsplex confused as to what they had seen in round two of a scheduled eight.
With middleweight Hearns flat on the deck and being tended to by EMS personnel, the crowd stood in silence for two or three minutes, until referee Frank Garza finally raised the hand of the exuberant Findley, now 20-8.
After some 15 minutes, Hearns, who had collapsed after going halfway through the ropes, was wheeled away on a gurney that was getting full use on this evening. Lightheavyweight Rubin Williams, a spectator, had been transported out of the building after apparently collapsing, and action between Hearns and Findley had to be suspended after the first round until the gurney could be returned.
