Tambwe Djeko rejects Ryad Merhy

Tambwe Djeko, after his impressive win against Ismail Abdoul, was looking to fight for the vacant WBC EPBC title on April 4 in Zwevezele on the same card as Hedi Slimani versus Samir Ziani for the vacant WBC Francophone lightweight title.
As unbeaten prospect Ryad Merhy was left without an opponent, when Yves Ngabu had to pull out of his Belgian titlefight against Merhy due to a fractured hand, promoter Filiep Tampere offered the fight to Merhy. After some reflection team Merhy accepted the challenge of Tambwe Djeko.
But now it is team Tambwe Djeko who told promoter Tampere that they are not interested to fight Ryad Merhy at this moment.
Ryad Merhy, 13-0-0/11, will fight Bjoern Blaschke next Saturday at the Spiroudome of Charleroi and will be looking for win number 14.
Promoter Filiep Tampere will still give it a try to promote the vacant WBC EPBC fight in Zwevezele on April 4 and find a suitable opponent for Merhy. The Belgian cruiserweight star has a busy schedule with fights lined up on March 14 in Charleroi, April 4 in Zwevezele, May 31 in Aalst and June 13 again in Charleroi.

Dulorme: Bo-Mac disrespectful to Latinos

The camp of jr welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme released a statement today addressing comments made by Terence Crawford’s co-manager and trainer Brian “Bo-Mac” McIntyre during last week’s kick-off press conference for their fight on April 18 at the University of Texas, Arlington. After Dulorme mentioned repeatedly that he represented boxing fans in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Colombia and all Latinos, McIntyre commented, “The Mexicans, the Puerto Ricans, the Colombians, the Dominicans, they can’t help you fight, bro. I am not trying to be disrespectful, but this is between you and Terence.”

“I consider the comments of this gentleman Brian McIntyre very disrespectful toward the Latinos and to myself,” said Dulorme from an undisclosed location in Puerto Rico. “I dedicate this fight to all the Latinos, because I’m Latino, and I’m proud of it. In the ring, it’s only Crawford, the referee and I, but the support of the Latinos will be there as well and cannot be ignored. Day in and day out I represent Latinos around the world. In the great nation of the United States, you must take advantage of every opportunity. On April 18, I will work hard to become a world champion in Texas, and bring glory to my people.”

Briggs accepts Tarver’s challenge

briggsresponse300
Former multi-time world champion Antonio Tarver has been taunting former heavyweight champion of the world and WBA #6 heavyweight Shannon Briggs (57-6-1, 50 KOs) for weeks through the social media calling him out. Briggs says he is ready to call Tarver’s bluff and responded with the following:

“I can’t believe this fat, out of shape blown up cruiserweight has the nerve to call me out. What have you done at heavyweight to even warrant a fight with me, let alone fight for the heavyweight title? Your victory over Wlad Klitschko’s trainer Jonathan Banks? Are you serious? His trainer? Who is next? His personal chef in a final world title eliminator? You can only dream of accomplishing what I have at heavyweight as a former two-time heavyweight world champion. I know I am probably just wasting my time responding to you. I know that you’re just trying to latch on to my coattails from all the PR I have done over the last year by myself. There has been zero interest in your comeback. I get it. You’re desperate. I accept your challenge. Now go back to your Daddy Warbucks (adviser Al Haymon) to see if he can deliver what your big mouth has gotten you into. This is not going to be a long drawn out process. You got 24 hours. TICK TICK. LETS GO CHAMP!”

Donovan “Razor” Ruddock set for shock ring return

Granted license by Ontario Athletic Commission

By James Slater

Canada’s Donovan “Razor” Ruddock has not boxed since way back in October of 2001, yet the big-hitting former contender best known for his two losing wars with Mike Tyson is, incredibly, set to fight again this month. According to a news piece in The Toronto Sun, the 51-year-old has been granted a licence by The Ontario Athletic Commission and will fight a six-rounder in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada on the 28th of this month, on a card that will be topped by featherweight Logan McGuinness taking on Luis Armando Suarez.

Apparently Ruddock has dropped down from approx 300 pounds to a trim-looking 235 pounds, thanks in part to a vegan diet, and will likely face 44-year-old Raymond Olubowale, 10-6-1(7) on the 28th. Ruddock, who says he is inspired by George Foreman’s successful 1990’s comeback, says he will get past Olubowale and then look to fight for the Canadian title. (more…)
