Amir “King” Khan (26-1,18 KOs) demonstrated that he is ready for his December 10th showdown against Lamont “Havoc” Peterson (29-1-1, 15KOs) as he worked out Tuesday in front of the media at the Wild Card Boxing Gym in Hollywood, California. Khan is coming off an impressive KO win over Zab Judah back in July during which he captured the IBF jr welterweight title to add to his WBA title. “Training is going very well,” Khan said. “We are going to be ready for this fight no matter what!”

Kingsbury: Art of the Brawl

UFC 139 is LIVE on PPV Nov. 19!

The Octagon is a war zone and UFC fighters are its soldiers of fortune. The rank and file enter the cage aiming for a win, but there are others with deranged views of glory who seek three round slugfests that metaphorically set the arena on fire as fight fans scream along in the inferno of combat viewing excitement. The viking-like savagery these particular Mixed Martial Artists desire in their 15 minutes of ambidextrous assault is what keeps sane men up at night. These warriors who are only satiated by this havoc are bestowed upon them a coveted honor . . . Click here for more by Jordan Newmark, UFC.com

WBC gears up drive for wider acceptance of open scoring

WBC President Jose Sulaiman says had open scoring been used in the Pacquiao-Marquez bout last Saturday, the current controversy could have been avoided. “The WBC has a regulation that they don’t want to apply in the United States and that is to announce scores after the fourth and eighth rounds. If this was done, we wouldn’t have this scandal,” he stated. Open scoring will be one of the priorities to be discussed during the WBC Annual Convention, which will be held in Las Vegas on December 11-17. For the last five years, the organization has been announcing the score after the fourth and eighth rounds in most countries, which they argue gives the fans in the arena, those watching on television, and most importantly the boxers themselves the opportunity to know how they stand in the fight in order to adjust their strategy and efforts.

Dimitrenko surgery successful; will get Euro title shot at Helenius-Chisora winner with 120 days

Heavyweight Alexander Dimitrenko (32-1, 21 KOs) is back on the way to recovery after undergoing surgery on his left elbow on October 31. Dimitrenko had to give up his EBU European title because he would not be able to face mandatory challenger Robert Helenius in December. As reported by Fightnews.com, Helenius will now fight Dereck Chisora for the vacant belt. The winner must fight Dimitrenko within 120 days.

Universum CEO Waldemar Kluch has denied rumors that Dimitrenko was stripped by the EBU because of outstanding fees. “We have paid all fees to the EBU and this is documented,” said Kluch. “The decision for Dimitrenko to vacate the title is entirely justified due to his injury, because he couldn’t make his mandatory defense within the allotted time period.”

Brown the survivor

UFC 139 is LIVE on PPV Nov. 19!

The day Matt Brown nearly died was the beginning of an awakening.

Well before he competed in the UFC, Brown had nothing to his name except a backpack full of clothes. He was living with friends on a salary no higher than $20,000 a year. And there were the drugs and the drinking. One of those drugs was heroin, an overdose of which nearly sent Brown spiraling down to the point of no return. . . .
