Kovalev returning in March 2015

Sergey Kovalev will return in March against an opponent to be named and a location to be determined. Speculation is he will fight IBF mandatory Nadjib Mohammedi, who was signed yesterday by Main Events. “He is going to fight again in March but it is too early to say who his opponent might be,” said promoter Kathy Duva. “I am going to sit down with Egis [Klimas] and then once we make the decision we will let you all know.”

Kovalev stated he is ready to fight anyone they put in front of him, but added that he would like to add the WBC title to his collection. “I haven’t cleaned up this division yet. I have a goal to get the WBC title.”

Finally, Kovalev’s advice for Bernard Hopkins? “My counsel for Bernard is that he needs to stop his career. He is already not young man and he lost to Kovalev not because of his age. He feels great, he feels good, he feels he is in good shape, and he feels young in his body. He can get a lot of wins against a lot of good fighters including [Adonis] Stevenson and other top ten fighters. It is not my job right now. It is his job. He is feeling very good. I think he needs to stop and give the opportunity to younger boxers to be fighting on the top stage.”

Ricky Hatton: Judges cost Rabchenko victory

Promoter Ricky Hatton has paid tribute to Anthony Mundine, but he still feels his fighter, Sergey Rabchenko, beat the Aussie veteran. Mundine picked up the WBC Silver light-middleweight crown with a contentious split decision verdict over the Belarusian in Melbourne on Wednesday night. It was a display that showed the 39-year-old still has a place among boxing’s elite, yet the scoring raised questions as Rabchenko appeared to outwork him for much of the fight and hurt him several times in the later rounds.

“It wasn’t the worst decision I’ve seen but no way did Sergey lose the fight,” Ricky, who is Rabchenko’s promoter as well as his trainer, said. “I felt Sergey won more of the rounds and he had a knockdown that wasn’t scored as well. Sergey shook Mundine to his boots and in no way did he throw Anthony to the canvas. He hit the floor due to the punches that were landed. (more…)

Oosthuiizen has a lot to prove against Grachev

By Ron Jackson

Tommy Oosthuizen will have no lack of support when he fights Denis Grachev this weekend. But if he does not beat the Russian convincingly at Emperors Palace on Saturday night, many of his fans will turn their back on him. The former IBO super-middleweight champion simply has to make amends after disappointing his backers and many SA boxing enthusiasts. They are hoping to see Oosthuizen resurrect his career and prove he can be a light-heavyweight title contender.

The Golden Gloves Promotions tournament at the venue near Kempton Park will be televised live on SuperSport 7 from 7:30 pm (SA, CAT, GMT+2).

Promoter Rodney Berman has arranged WBC and IBO title fights and a local grudge match for the show but a turn-back-the-clock performance by Oosthuizen is what most spectators want to see. The man known as Tommy Gun is set to make his light-heavyweight debut after a year out of action when he takes on Grachev in a bout for the vacant WBC international title. (more…)

Kovalev defeated Hopkins in a wide decision to become the IBF, WBO and WBA unified light heavyweight champion.

While waiting for his chance at the IBF belt, Mohammedi knocked out Demetrius Walker at 2:16 in the first round on Saturday as part of the Hopkins-Kovalev undercard.

Frank Warren has different take on litigation with Ricky Burns

Frank Warren Statement: In a judgement handed down today in the case brought by promoter and manager Frank Warren against Ricky Burns for wrongful termination of his promotional contract and unpaid management fees, The Court upheld both agreements, ordering Burns to pay substantial outstanding management fees. Burns, whose career completely crashed after joining Eddie Hearn and Matchroom, badly losing two contests and his world title in the process, was also found in the Judgement to have wrongfully terminated his promotional contract with Frank Warren.

Ricky Burns lost or abandoned 17 out of the 20 issues the Judge had to determine and the Judge found his explanation and arguments about management commission were ‘untenable in the context of this case’. The Judge also ruled that Burns was wrong to claim that his purse for the Kevin Mitchell contest was £200,000 but that it was £160,000 as Mr Warren had stated. It transpired during trial that Ricky Burns is earning far less than £160,000 now he is being promoted by Matchroom Sport. (more…)

Ricky Burns issues statement on court case with former promoter Frank Warren

Statement from Ricky Burns: Frank Warren has lost his £2m claim against Ricky Burns. The Judge dismissed his claim as “fanciful” and said that it bore “no relation to reality.” Frank Warren was found to have lied in Court about an alleged oral agreement relating to Burns. His evidence was described as “untruthful”, “unrealistic” and “unreliable” by the Judge, Mr Justice Knowles. Warren had previously been found to have lied in his litigation with Joe Calzaghe.

Mr Justice Knowles added that “despite the duties of Warren and Frank Warren Promotions to give proper disclosure of documents relevant to this matter, the quality of the disclosure in fact given was shockingly poor.” Burns has in turn, won his claim, amounting to more than £102,000, for unpaid purse fees from his successful World Title fight with Kevin Mitchell over two years ago.
