Rahman in Maryland HOF

By Gary “Digital” Williams

Former Undisputed World Heavyweight champion Hasim “The Rock” Rahman will be inducted into the Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame later this year. Rahman, who is still an active boxer (50-7-2, 41 KO’s), pulled off one of the great upsets in recent boxing history when he knocked out Lennox Lewis in the fifth round on April 22, 2001 in Gauteng, South Africa to win the undisputed title. The Baltimore-born boxer would later win a WBC title in August of 2005. (more…)

Calderon-Garcia clash Oct 29

WBO president Francisco “Paco” Valcárcel confirmed today that former world champions Ivan “Iron Boy” Calderon (105 and 108 pounds) and Raul “Rayito” Garcia (105 pounds) will collide on October 29 in Puerto Rico as part of the WBO 24th Convention for the mini-flyweight interim title. Valcárcel was in Mexico last week and learned that Moises Fuentes, the WBO 105lb champion, hurt his nose in his win over Garcia last August 27, and “he can’t fight soon. Therefore, Calderon (34-2-1, 6 KOs) and Garcia (30-2-1, 18 KOs) will fight for the interim title headlining the card as part of the WBO Convention”.

Peter Rivera, PR Best Boxing Promotions vice-president, said that they are working on a venue for the show, but it seems it will be the Coliseo Mario “Quijote” Morales in Guaynabo.

Haye rips Vitali

In an interview with German newspaper “Die Welt” former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye dared WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko to fight him. “I’ll knock him out, I’ll smash his chin if he holds it out like he did again Adamek,” said Haye. “But still I can not imagine that Vitali has the courage. If he does, I guarantee I’ll send him into retirement. He will never fight again and will be able to devote himself full time to politics.”

Haye also claimed that Wladimir Klitschko ran away from him or clinched and pulled him to the ground in their fight and that “I hit harder than the two brothers together. I am also much faster, more agile and much, much harder to hit.”

Mayweather free of ring rust


Story by Andreas Hale

Photos by Chris Cozzone

It’s been sixteen long months since Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has stepped into the ring. The last time we saw the five-division champion in action resulted in a one-sided drubbing of “Sugar” Shane Mosley where Mayweather was criticized for facing a fighter well past his prime. Those complaints should grind to a halt when “Money” faces a fighter a decade his junior when he faces “Vicious” Victor Ortiz at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on September 17th. Considering the age difference, Mayweather is confident that his experience and overall skill will be the difference maker on Saturday night. That little concept called ring rust is the furthest thing from his mind. (more…)
