Coleman-Paris collide Aug 5

By Francisco Salazar

In what is a stellar fight on paper, Tim Coleman (19-1, 5 KO’s) and Vernon Paris (24-0, 14 KO’s) are scheduled to meet in a 10 round junior welterweight bout on Friday, August 5th at the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez, CA. It should be a compelling bout between two of the quickest fighters at 140 pounds. Also on the card and fresh off his impressive knockout performance over Archie Ray Marquez last month, Art Hovhannesyan (14-0-1, 8 KO’s) will take a major step up in class, as he takes on former world title holder Cristobal Cruz (39-12-2, 23 KO’s) in a scheduled 10 round bout. As if the card were not stacked enough, Gary Shaw Productions matchmaker John Beninati told Fightnews.com that Said El Harrak (10-1, 5 KO’s) faces local fighter Francisco Santana (12-2-1, 6 KO’s) in a crossroads bout between young prospects. ESPN2 Friday Night Fights will televise the card. Tickets start at $35 in a venue where there is not a bad seat. Tickets could be purchased by calling 1-800-CHUMASH.

It’s TYSON Time

Tyson Fury says he is more than ready for his moment of truth against British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora on Saturday night at Wembley Arena. The 6ft 9′ Mancunian, with Irish ancestory, has come in for some criticism for how outspoken he has been leading up to his clash with Chisora but unbeaten Fury says he will back up the talk and claim the titles he has always wanted.

“The Big Brawl” PPV event is being distributed in the U.S. by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 3 PM/ET – 12 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, and Avail-TVN, for a suggested retail price of only $24.95. (Check with your PPV provider for same day replay times.) The telecast is also available in Canada to all Super Channel network subscribers.

It is by far Fury’s biggest test and he is aware that some may feel it has come a bit too soon but the 22-year-old has no doubt he will produce a performance to remember. “I’m in the shape of my life for the fight of my life and Dereck Chisora won’t know what hits him on Saturday night,” said Fury.

WBO championship update

WBO President Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel reports on the status of several WBO champions:

WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley: “The WBO will study the legal status of our great champion Timothy Bradley. We respect our champion and we don’t want to affect his career. However, we should be consider other ranked fighters who aspire to contest to the title in this division. We suggest to the Championship Committee to consider an interim title between the two best ranked fighters in the 140lb division. Champion Bradley is inactive since February 29, 2011 when he unified titles after beat Devon Alexander.” Bradley is in litigation with his promoters.

WBO jr middleweight champion Serhiy Dzinziruk: “In the 154 pounds division, Serhiy Dzinziruk and Lukas Konecny have an agreement to face on September 30 in Czech Republic. This division has been inactive due to Dzinziruk’s legal issues with his former promoter. For this reason, WBO approved an interim title fight to be held in Ukraine next July 30 between Zauerbek Baysangurov and Mike Miranda. Winners of both fights (Dzinziruk-Konecny and Baysangurov-Miranda) will have 90 days after September 30 to face each other.”

WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire: “We are going to talk with Top Rank to know about the status with Donaire. If the litigation is not finished, we are going to wait for the information about the date of his next title defense.”

WBO super bantamweight champion Jorge “Travieso” Arce: “Jorge Arce is the current 122lb champion and the only Mexican champion in four different divisions. If he decided to go down to 118 pounds to fight for a title of another body, we consider the possibility of make an interim title with the two best ranked fighters at 122 pounds.”

Chisora-Fury Security Fear

Promoter Mick Hennessy has revealed that he has had a request to draft in extra security for tomorrow’s weigh-in for Saturday night’s British and Commonwealth heavyweight title clash between champion Dereck Chisora and challenger Tyson Fury. Hennessy, who is staging the grudge clash at Wembley Arena, says the bad blood between the two fighters runs deep, to the point that the British Boxing Board of Control has banned the traditional face-off at the weigh-in, which takes place tomorrow at the Crown Moran Hotel in Cricklewood, London.

Hennessy said: “The war of words between Tyson and Chisora has had a real edge to it and we have a genuine grudge clash on our hands and the British Boxing Board of Control have put in place a number of restrictions for the weigh-in. (more…)

Tyson set to unleash Fury

‘The Big Brawl: To Settle It All’ PPV Saturday

All of the smack talking is just about done and much more apparently is now on the line for Saturday’s United Kingdom showdown between British and Commonwealth heavyweight Champion Dereck “Del Boy” Chisora (14-0, 9 KOs) and undefeated challenger Tyson Fury (14-0, 10 KOs) who headline “The Big Brawl: To Settle It All” Pay-per-View event live from Wembley Arena in London.

“The Big Brawl” PPV event is being distributed in the U.S. by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 3 PM/ET – 12 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, and Avail-TVN, for a suggested retail price of only $24.95. (Check with your PPV provider for same day replay times.) The telecast is also available in Canada to all Super Channel network subscribers.

The scheduled Chisora-Fury 12-round main event has a much more serious world title shot implication for the winner as world champion Wladimir Klitschko recently told The Mirror, “There are tons of guys who could be my next challenger who are young and undefeated. Chisora and Fury are two such fighters and they are going to fight soon. They may not be big names yet in world terms, but I had not heard about David Haye two years ago.” (more…)
