Suluki: Haye corner not top notch

David Haye doesn’t have the technical ability or the support in his corner to beat Audley Harrison, according to the challenger’s trainer Shadeed Suluki. The experienced cornerman has been putting Harrison through his paces at Big Bear in California ahead of the World Heavyweight title fight with Haye on November 13 in Manchester, and Suluki believes that the combination of Audley’s preparation and positive state of mind will see him emerge victorious. “Audley knows himself now, he is in a very comfortable place,” said Suluki. “He knows his ability more than ever and this is his destiny, he feels it, I feel it, we all feel it. This is a match made in heaven for us.” (more…)

Former light heavyweight world champion Antonio Tarver has added 46 pounds for his debut as a heavyweight against Nagy Aguilera tonight at Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma.

Boxing back in Rochester, NY

By Bob Caico

Undefeated middleweight prospect Willie Monroe, Jr. looks to improve on his 9-0 record in his hometown on Friday night. The Rochester, NY native takes on Mickey Scarborough (6-2) of Kansas City in the eight-round main event on a card co-promoted by Resnick Productions and DiBella Entertainment. Monroe, Jr. is the nephew of former contender Willie “The Worm” Monroe and son of a tough fighter in the 1990’s Willie Monroe. Those relationships have not gone unnoticed. “Willie has some great blood lines,” says his promoter Lou DiBella. “Not only is he a great boxer but a good kid too. I think he is the most talented young fighter who is under the radar right now.”

At the “Global Boxing Gym” in North Bergen, New Jersey, both of the main actors at the Prudential Center main event on December 9 – top world heavyweight Tomasz Adamek (42-1, 27 KOs) and the always tough Vinny Maddalone (33-6, 24 KO) were all smiles. “It will be the fight every fan of boxing has to see, because Tomasz Adamek and Vinny Maddalone are guys like from a different era – they want to fight, give fans their money worth. It will be like Mickey Ward versus Arturo Gatti – punch for punch” – said Joe DeGuardia, who represents Maddalone. Adamek, as usual, did not want to play with predictions. ”I hope after my five years of fighting in US and two world titles in the light heavyweight and cruiserweight divisions, fans of boxing already know that I’m always well prepared to fight for them. Full speed ahead. The ‘no fear’ motto will apply to my fight with Vinny,” said Adamek.
