Khan, Maidana quick quotes

Photo by Chris Cozzone

By Andreas Hale

Khan – “This is a big fight for me. My dream was always to fight in Las Vegas and having my name lit up on the strip. This time has come for me at the age of 24-years-old. Maidana is a big threat in this division but it’s my time. It’s going to be a big night and I want to end the year with fireworks.”

Roach – “We’re ready for the fight. We’ve been all over the world training for this fight (with) different sparring partners and different scenery. It’s been a really good 10 week camp. Amir is ready and this is going to be ‘Fight of the Year.”

Maidana – “This is a very important fight for my career, but not the hardest.”

Ortiz – “I know I’m up for a tough fight and I don’t look past anyone. There has been questions about a rematch (with Maidana) or a fight against Khan. They have their thing to do Saturday and I have mine. He’s a great fighter and his record speaks for itself. Enjoy the fight Saturday night?”

Peterson – “This fight is a must win for me. Look forward to a good fight this weekend.”

Mark Wahlberg, Micky Ward and producer, David O. Russell, stepped out Wednesday night for a private showing of Mark’s latest movie, “The Fighter,” at the Patriot Cinemas in the Hingham Shipyard. Wahlberg plays “Irish” Mickey Ward, a boxer whose half-brother (Christian Bale) helps to train him before he goes pro in the mid-1980s. Amy Adams co-stars as Ward’s love interest in the film, which is directed by David O. Russell (Paramount).

In other Micky Ward news, the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy (CSTE) at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) announced today that Ward has pledged to donate his brain after his death to the CSTE Brain Donation Registry and will participate in CSTE longitudinal research.

Reveco seeking manager, trainer

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Current WBA interim light flyweight world champion Juan Carlos Reveco of Argentina has announced that he is no longer with manager Osvaldo Rivero and trainer Julio Pablo Chacon. Reveco says he broke away for various reasons, mainly because certain points of his contract were not met. He waited until now to make the news public out of respect for his friend Jonathan Barros, who was training to fight for the world title. Reveco says he’s not retiring and wants to evaluate proposals before proceeding further. He is slated to fight WBA interim light flyweight champion Roman Gonzalez in 2011.

Blueprint: GSP vs. Koscheck 2

UFC 124 is LIVE on PPV Dec. 11!

On Saturday night, the greatest welterweight on the planet defends his title against the clear number one contender.  Reigning champion and pound-for-pound great Georges St-Pierre hopes he experiences déjà vu when the action gets underway.  Just over three years ago, he summarily defeated Josh Koscheck in an entertaining, though clear-cut, three round battle that helped erase the putrid taste of defeat that lingered from a shocking technical knockout loss to Matt Serra half a year earlier.  The outcome unquestionably gives GSP a tremendous foundation of confidence heading into the rematch. . . .

Klitschko-Chisora off

By Karl Freitag

WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has suffered an injury forcing the cancellation of Saturday’s title defense against Dereck Chisora on Saturday in Mannheim, Germany. If or when the fight will be rescheduled is not yet determined. Bernd Bönte, Managing Director of Klitschko Management Group GmbH, informed Fighnews.com that the injury “is an abdominal muscle tear two inches long.”

Further information has now been released…

After an initial diagnosis, Klitschko suffered a torn abdominal muscle on his left side during his afternoon training session on Wednesday. “The abdominal muscle is injured and therefore Wladimir Klitschko will not be able to fight on Saturday,” says Dr. Sven Roessing, orthopedic specialist at university hospital Mannheim, Germany. Klitschko will have to pause for about 4 – 6 weeks. It is the second time in his professional career Wladimir Klitschko had to cancel a fight due to an injury, the first being in 2001 one week before a December 1 bout in New York City against David Izon due to a shoulder injury.

Australian super middleweight 2010 Contender champion Garth “Woodsy” Wood (10-1-1, 5 KOs) caused the biggest upset in Australian boxing for several years when he scored a fifth round knockout over former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony “The Man” Mundine (40-4, 24 KOs) in a scheduled ten round contest at the Acer Arena, Homebush, Sydney, NSW, Australia on Wednesday. Wood aggressively attacked Mundine but the former champ evaded many of the bombs early with clever foot work. In a scrappy contest – Wood found the range in round five for a left hook bomb to the temple that dropped the WBA #2 rated Mundine and at :58 Wood was crowned the winner by referee Les Fear.
