Chisora-Fury Security Fear

Promoter Mick Hennessy has revealed that he has had a request to draft in extra security for tomorrow’s weigh-in for Saturday night’s British and Commonwealth heavyweight title clash between champion Dereck Chisora and challenger Tyson Fury. Hennessy, who is staging the grudge clash at Wembley Arena, says the bad blood between the two fighters runs deep, to the point that the British Boxing Board of Control has banned the traditional face-off at the weigh-in, which takes place tomorrow at the Crown Moran Hotel in Cricklewood, London.

Hennessy said: “The war of words between Tyson and Chisora has had a real edge to it and we have a genuine grudge clash on our hands and the British Boxing Board of Control have put in place a number of restrictions for the weigh-in. (more…)

After losing four of his last five, Clones, Ireland veteran Kevin McBride (35-9-1, 29 KOs) might be considered the heavy underdog on Friday, July 29th, 2011 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., but he’s predicting another major upset against undefeated Polish heavyweight Mariusz Wach (24-0, 12 KOs) in the main event of “Heat Wave,” presented by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment & Sports in association with Global Boxing Promotions.

Tyson set to unleash Fury

‘The Big Brawl: To Settle It All’ PPV Saturday

All of the smack talking is just about done and much more apparently is now on the line for Saturday’s United Kingdom showdown between British and Commonwealth heavyweight Champion Dereck “Del Boy” Chisora (14-0, 9 KOs) and undefeated challenger Tyson Fury (14-0, 10 KOs) who headline “The Big Brawl: To Settle It All” Pay-per-View event live from Wembley Arena in London.

“The Big Brawl” PPV event is being distributed in the U.S. by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 3 PM/ET – 12 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, and Avail-TVN, for a suggested retail price of only $24.95. (Check with your PPV provider for same day replay times.) The telecast is also available in Canada to all Super Channel network subscribers.

The scheduled Chisora-Fury 12-round main event has a much more serious world title shot implication for the winner as world champion Wladimir Klitschko recently told The Mirror, “There are tons of guys who could be my next challenger who are young and undefeated. Chisora and Fury are two such fighters and they are going to fight soon. They may not be big names yet in world terms, but I had not heard about David Haye two years ago.” (more…)

Koncz’s wings to be clipped?

By Nick Giongco

Franklin Gacal, the Filipino lawyer of pound-for-pound star Manny Pacquiao, said on Thursday night that Canadian Mike Koncz’s role in Team Pacquiao will be drastically cut with the hands-on involvement of VisionQwest Accountancy Group of Los Angeles. Koncz is on his way to Manila from Los Angeles and is expected to arrive Friday morning.

When news came out Monday that he had been fired by Pacquiao, Koncz immediately contacted his boss and was assured that he remains part of the team. Interviewed by Filipino scribes one day after the Internet reports came out, Pacquiao said the report of Koncz’s alleged firing “is not true.” Even Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum, who is vacationing in the South of France, said Koncz will remain as Pacquiao’s adviser.

But MP8.ph website, said to be the official website of Pacquiao, said that’s no longer the case and that it was Pacquiao himself who decided on the matter. Koncz said “things like this happen whenever I am not with Manny in the Philippines.”

Adamek’s innovative training

Report/Video by Przemek Garczarczyk

“This is one of our basic movement training methods. Depending on Tomek’s daily schedule, now when he is sparring, I usually use two sets of rubbers – 30 and 50 pounds of weight,” said Tyler Woodman, Tomasz Adamek’s conditioning and strength coach. “For some it may look funny, but this is very effective way of making Tomek’s ring movement a thing of beauty. Tomek sometimes does two 3-minute rounds, just doing shadow boxing like there’s nothing on his ankles. A normal, physically fit person would not be able even make one step with a 50-pound rubber.”

Because Adamek arrived from his training camp in the Poconos Mountains, to New York for an HBO presser with Vitali Klitschko, we were able to get a rare glimpse behind the Polish fighter’s training methods before his WBC heavyweight title fight on September 10 in Wroclaw, Poland.
