Klitschko-Haye Quick Quotes

Heavyweight champions Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye went at it verbally at today’s press conference in Hamburg. Haye showed up 30 minutes late and refused to shake Wlad’s hand.

Klitschko: “I respect you as a boxer, but not as a person. I’m gonna knock you out in the ring and bring you back to reality. Then you will be a better person and have better manners.”

Haye: “It’s going to be fun watch this robot start malfunctioning, that’s what’s going to happen…real fast. I’m healthy, speed is ridiculous, punch power is there, I’m just in a really good place. I am so happy the fight is happening now and not a couple of years ago as I am a much better fighter now. I can’t wait to get in there and do what I am going to do.”

It will be good for me, good for the sport. Both of them are fighting for the heavyweight titles, they did a great job, both landed mega fights. They put themselves in the great position for their future, their lives. Every fighter wants to do that,” said Cunningham. (more…)

Lange beats McFail

By Neil Dennis

On paper, a rematch between Jimmy Lange and Mike McFail didn’t seem to make sense. Lange already beat McFail, shutting him out on all three scorecards in his own turf of North Carolina. The only logical explanation seemed to be Lange wanting to pad his record following last year’s upset loss to Chase Shields. However, once the fight began, no one in the attendance doubted the logic of this nice bit of matchmaking. For more details and photos click here…

By Francisco Salazar

Lightweight John Molina stated that he was not looking past Robert Frankel in their 10 round bout on Friday night. If Molina just happened to be looking past him, Frankel sure got his attention early on in the fight. Frankel came to fight, even outboxing Molina at times, before numerous cuts on Frankel’s face forced a referee’s stoppage after the fifth round at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, CA. The bout headlined a six-bout card, presented by Goossen Tutor Promotions, in association with Thompson Boxing. Molina was coming off a third round knockout victory over Alejandro Rodriguez less than four weeks ago. He took the bout as a tune-up in preparation for the Frankel fight, since he had not fought since his come-from-behind knockout victory over Hank Lundy in July.
