Manchester star “Million Dollar” Crolla defends his title against Limond on November 25th at the Ravenscraig Sports Centre in Motherwell, Scotland, and reckons he will be the one facing Burns.

Alexander vows to KO Roy Jones

Max Alexander understands his current place in the boxing world. Inactive for two years and without a win in his past six fights, few if any give him any chance at all of coming out on top in his December 10 showdown with the legendary Roy Jones Jr. at the Atlanta Civic Center. For that very reason, Alexander didn’t hesitate to accept this assignment, one the cruiserweight views as the opportunity of a lifetime when he squares off against the 12-time world champion in four weight classes who is destined for the Boxing Hall of Fame.

Not only is the Camden (NJ)-based fighter confident of victory, he goes as far as to guarantee when the fight will end and literally willing to put his money where his mouth is. “I have been working hard, training hard, and I will knock out Roy Jones, Jr. by the 6th round,” says Alexander (14-5-2, 2KO), who participated in Season Three of the boxing reality show ‘The Contender.’ “If I don’t KO him by 6th Rd I will forfeit my purse. Roy doesn’t stand a chance against me. I am 6’2” with a 76” reach and I have a right hand that will put Roy to sleep.”

NY Post: Another Oscar scandal?

25-year-old former Playboy model Angelica Marie Cecora has filed a lawsuit against ring legend and promoter Oscar de la Hoya alleging emotional distress, false imprisonment, assault and battery during a drug-fueled sex party that took place several months before Oscar went into rehab. “It was beyond kinky,” Cecora, told The New York Post. She alleges that the Golden Boy went cavorting around in women’s underwear, went crazy with cocaine and sex toys and intimidated her and a roommate when they tried to leave. “Things that I don’t even know how to explain were done with him,” she told the tabloid.

Trinidad gifts King $500k

Boxing promoter Don King received a gift of $500,000 from his fighter Felix “Tito” Trindad in celebration of his 80th birthday. Trinidad, a five-time world champion who King promoted in his most thrilling world championship matches, was not able to come to South Florida to celebrate the milestone birthday with his longtime promoter on Aug. 20, so he sent the big present to let King know how much he appreciates all of his efforts on his behalf. In a note that accompanied the gift, Felix “Tito” Trinidad and his father Juan Felix “Papa” Trinidad Rodriguez Sr. gave birthday wishes and noted their gratitude to King. “We want to express congratulations on your 80th birthday and hope that you maintain good health for the years to come. We want to express our gratitude to you for the opportunities you gave us.” King said it was completely unexpected. “You can imagine my surprise when I received this gift from Tito and Papa,” King said. “We had been planning on getting together, but our schedules had not lined up. What a pleasant surprise it was for them to let me know they still love and appreciate me. I feel the same way about them.”

The sports world has been buzzing once again about the possibility of an upcoming fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather after “Money” declared that May 5th, 2012 has been set aside for the two to meet in Las Vegas. Mainstream media outlets have all given their two cents as to whether or not this fight will actually take place.

He is not dwelling on being elevated to “Champion in Recess,” whatever that means, by a sanctioning body.
