Broner-DeMarco/Mitchell-Banks Quotes

Tickets go on sale tomorrow for the November 17 clash between former WBO jr lightweight champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner (24-0, 20 KOs) and reigning WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KOs) at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey in the main event of HBO card that also features undefeated heavyweight Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell (25-0-1, 19 KOs) against Johnathon Banks (28-1-1, 18 KOs) in a bout that was rescheduled when Mitchell suffered a hand injury forcing him to withdraw from the original date in July.

Adrien Broner: “I’m not coming just to win this fight, I’m coming to knock DeMarco out. This fight is speed vs. power and it’s going to be just another day in the ring for me. Going up in weight is going to be different and I know he can hit, but you can’t hit what you can’t see and I’m too fast and furious for him. Power is nothing if you can’t connect; it’s like moving a sack of rocks.”

Antonio DeMarco: “This is another tough fight that has been presented to me and I’m going to do everything to keep my WBC title. Broner talks a big game but he’s never been in the ring with a hungry Mexican fighter like me. I wanted this fight from the moment it was offered to me because I know I’ll be the first person to beat Broner and put him in his place. When I put my hands on him, he’ll regret his decision to move up to my division.”

Seth Mitchell: “It’s taken a while, but I’m happy to finally be back in action and fighting a great opponent like Johnathon Banks. I love fighting in Atlantic City because I know my fans from Maryland and the D.C. area will be out in force cheering me on. I am going to give them all a great fight.”

Johnathon Banks: “I’m looking to steal the show on November 17. I’ll prove what a true boxer at the highest level can do against a football player. The winner of our fight should be next in line for a title shot. I plan on making sure that winner is me.”

Chavez Jr. suspended at NSAC Meeting; calls referee “racist” in tweet; Martinez responds

By unanimous vote, the Nevada Athletic Commission suspended former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. at least until a disciplinary hearing where Chavez will be asked to explain his positive test for marijuana following his September 15 fight with Sergio Martinez. With this being Junior’s second failed drug test in Nevada, he could receive a suspension longer than the seven months he received for the first offense.

——————–

In other Julio news…


Vean al referi racista ese, fijense como en la segunda caida ayudo a levantarse a maravilla y diganme si veo mal ?

…on his Twitter account Chavez accused the “racist referee” of helping Martinez get off the canvas in their fight.


@ Antidoping de sangre y orina, maestro y peleamos de vuelta mañana mismo si de mi depende. Limpia el boxeo, q lo has dañado.
@maravillabox
Sergio Martínez

Martinez then tweeted Julio chided him about his failed antidoping test.

Luxembourg Commission wants back in EBU

"FLB should never have been "expulsed" by the EBU in the first place as the vote was unfounded and unconstitutional"

Below is an open letter from the Fédération Luxembourgeois de Boxe to the European Boxing Union laying out reasons why their membership status be reinstated.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

As you are aware, the Fédération Luxembourgeois de Boxe (FLB) lost its membership status of the European Boxing Union (EBU) – of which FLB was a founding member! – over the licencing of the David Haye vs Dereck Chisora fight on July 14, 2012 in London, England.

While we contend that this act was in truth based on the fact, that the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) wishes to discourage and discriminate other European national federations from licencing professional boxing in the United Kingdom – an illegal process by the BBBofC according to European Union free trade and monopoly laws, as we all know – the official reason given for the “expulsion” of FLB from the EBU was “that sanctioning Haye vs Chisora is not promoting boxing” (EBU statement) (more…)

The bill is headed by Hatton who makes his comeback against former WBA welterweight champion Vyacheslav Senchenko.

Tyson visa approved for Australia

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has been granted a visa from the Australian Government to visit the country for his Day of Champions tour in November. The decision follows the controversial back-track from Immigration Minister Kate Wilkinson to revoke a New Zealand visa granted to Tyson last week for the same tour. A second application for a New Zealand visa has been put forward to the Ministry of Immigration on behalf of Tyson. Tour promoter Max Markson said he was thrilled Tyson would be allowed into Australia for the first time. “We hope we will also receive good news about Tyson’s visit to New Zealand and are now patiently waiting on their response.” Wilkinson confirmed yesterday the Government would consider the reapplication after the Urban Maori Authority backed the visit in return for a guest appearance from Tyson at a south Auckland marae.

Harrison confesses: I lived a lie

Price vs Harrison is LIVE on WealthTV.com Saturday at 3p ET/noon PT

Heavyweight Audley Harrison admits he has “lived a lie” during his career – but insists he will end it on a high this weekend. Since winning a gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Harrison (28-5) has often failed to back up his bragging with powerhouse performances that were promised. He makes his final stand when he challenges British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price (13-0) at Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday. The bout will be televised in the USA exclusively on Wealth TV.

Harrison, 40, said: “This is not talk this time. I talk a good fight I know, but I am coming to walk through him and separate myself from the pack. I can understand when people don’t believe me, but I talk like how I see it. You can’t live a lie when you’re on that starting line and I have lived a lie in the amateurs and professional game. I did just enough to win because I had that talent and chip on my shoulder to pull it out, but that ignorant guy doesn’t exist anymore. This is my last chance saloon.” (more…)
