Photos: Michaelsterlingeaton.com

Wladimir Klitschko (57-3, 50 KOs), and Tony Thompson (36-2, 24 KOs), participated today in a press conference at the “Hotel Bellevue Pallace Bern” and talked about their upcoming clash next Saturday. WBA/WBO super champion, IBO/IBF world heavyweight champion Klitschko and his challenger Thompson will face off at the Stade de Suisse in Bern, Switzerland.

Wladimir Klitschko: “I feel great and I am happy that the fight is near. When I was 30 years old I thought I had reached my peak but I am still getting better from fight to fight. Thompson knows me as good as no other boxer. He was my sparring partner once, he fought me four years ago, so he knows exactly what to expect on fight night. I am sure he will be better than ever.”

Tony Thompson: ”I don’t want to talk a lot and I will not spit at Wladimir. I have trained very hard and want the world to see that my time has come!”

UFC 148 is too close to call

UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II is LIVE on PPV Saturday, July 7 at 7 PM PT/10 PM ET

When Chael Sonnen challenged Anderson Silva for the UFC® middleweight title on August 7, 2010 at UFC 117, he started the fight as a 4-1 underdog. He is the underdog once again for Saturday’s eagerly-awaited UFC 148 rematch, but the odds this time are significantly closer due to Sonnen’s incredible success in the first fight.

Chael Sonnen said: “To say this guy is superior to me is a joke. Look at the statistics from the first fight. I out-landed him by over 200 punches, I took him down at will, I passed his guard at will and I beat him on the feet too.” (more…)

Brook: I thrive on big fight pressure

Kell Brook says he thrives under the pressure of a big fight night ahead of taking on Carson Jones in an IBF World welterweight title eliminator on Saturday in Sheffield, England – and he has heaped more onto his own shoulders by promising a knockout win. Brook and Jones clash at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield and the unbeaten Brook says he has to KO the American to prove he is worthy of his first world title shot.

“There’s always been pressure on me since I put the gloves on people have been watching,” said Brook. “I got rid of a lot of nerves after fighting in front of such a massive crowd against Matthew Hatton and I used the pressure and nerves to my advantage. I coasted through the fight really, and this time I want to move through the gears and really hurt him. It’s such a high class division that you have to do something special to get noticed – I know that I have to get rid of this guy in style on Saturday night and believe me, I will.” (more…)

Eddde Chambers undergoes surgery today

Eddie Chambers will undergo surgery today to repair an injury he suffered during his June 16th battle against Tomasz Adamek. Chambers revealed, “At the end of the first round I felt something rip. I remember thinking ‘Hey, that didn’t feel right.’ It turns out I the tore a tendon that connects my bicep to the bone. I am having surgery to repair that.”

Chambers is anxious to get back in the ring, “Once I have the surgery, I will do physical therapy for about 2 months. I will keep in shape physically. You know running, and anything that doesn’t require upper body, etc. Just to stay in shape and stay ready so that once I get back it’s not going to take as long to get ready for fighting. I want to get back into a fight as soon as I possibly can after that.”

Report/gallery: Bundrage vs. Spinks

Immediately after Cornelius “K-9″ Bundrage successfully defended his IBF junior middleweight title on “ShoBox: The New Generation” with a seventh round TKO over Cory Spinks at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, discussion centered on whether his performance vaulted him into consideration as a potential opponent for Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on September 15th.

A second storyline developed after the fight though when it was learned that Bundrage was losing on two of the three judges cards at the time of the stoppage in a fight he was in firm control of throughout, including a first round knockdown of Spinks. Amazingly, judges Gwen Adair and Robert Byrd had Spinks winning four rounds to two (57-56 Spinks), while the third judge Fernando Villarreal gave three rounds to each fighter (57-56 Bundrage). Spinks had some good moments in the fight, but through six rounds Spinks was winning this fight about as convincingly as Tim Bradley beat Manny Pacquiao . . . click here for more
