UFC 116 press conference report

Fans and media expecting drama and WWE-style vulgarity from Brock Lesnar went away from today’s press conference disappointed.

None of the 250 fans allowed in to the presser, held at MGM’s Hollywood Theater in Las Vegas, were flipped off. There was no foaming at the mouth and no one was insulted, not Bud Light – not even Lesnar’s opponent, Shane Carwin.

Erik Morales Update

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Former multiple division world boxing champion Eric “El Terrible” Morales is again planning the second bout of his comeback. “At this moment I’m trying to find the second bout of my return,” said Morales. “We’re looking at September 11th in Tijuana or any part of Mexico. I’ve read in the news that Paul Spadafora was mentioned [as an opponent] but in reality I don’t have any information on that possibility. We’re focused on the development of the boxing program of our company Box Latino in Tijuana. We’re training hard and will announce the opponent, date and place.” Morales was scheduled to fight American prospect Vicente Escobedo, but the fight failed to materialize due to an injury suffered by Morales.

While Orji stood confidently in the center of the canvas the fleet footed Salka bobbed and weaved his way from corner to corner in search of an opening.

I'll inflict a beating on Abraham

Former WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch has promised to square things up for England when he faces off with German Arthur Abraham in their upcoming Super Six showdown. “The Germans may have defeated us in the World Cup. But this is one England vs Germany showdown that requires no hype,” Froch wrote in his weekly Nottingham Post column. “There will be no dodgy officiating for either of us – as we’ll be facing off at a neutral venue. One thing is for sure, this time it’ll be 3-0. In the SuperSix, you get two points for a win and three points for a stoppage. I’ll be gunning for the latter.” He also stated that Abraham “strikes no fear into me. I’ve sparred with much heavier and bigger punchers than him….I want to ensure that I inflict a beating on him that will send a loud message out that I will not be denied the SuperSix trophy.” Read the complete column
