Vernon Forrest Statement!

“The recent news about me fighting in Atlanta against Sergio Martinez was a surprise.  As you know, I am currently recovering from a rib injury that has not allowed me to fight and defend my WBC Super Welterweight Title.  At this point I have not been given clearance from my doctor to even start rehabbing the injury, much less training to fight. I have not fought since September of 2008 and it is my expectation  that the WBC would honor my request to fight a tune up fight once I’m ready which will most likely be 11 months since my last fight.  The WBC has taken this approach with many of their champions in the past, and I’m confident that they will with me as well.”

Pacquiao-Hatton: final presser

All kidding aside, Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton was able to keep his humor at bay during today’s final presser held at the MGM—long enough to promise the press that he was going to prove ‘em wrong in his fight with Manny Pacquiao.

Pacquiao wasn’t so successful, for during a face-off, the only profile boxing’s pound-for-pound king showed, was his humorous side. Unable to keep a straight face, Pacquiao broke out laughing.

WBC Light-Flyweight titleholder Edgar Sosa (35-5,19 KOs) can rightfully be called boxing’s busiest champion. Having succesfully defended his crown on March 28th, Sosa will be stepping back into the ring as early as May 30th for yet another title defense against an opponent TBA. Since he surprised the boxing world two years ago, winning the WBC belt over favored Brian Viloria, the 29-year-old champion has made eight title defenses, sold over a hundred thousand tickets to his fights and become a favorite of Mexican television. Edgar’s popularity is due to many factors: the Rocky-like story of a former hard-luck journeyman  boxer that turned his career, and life, around; his victories over  Filipino rivals and his willingness to constantly fight and  put his belt on the line.

Maddalone, Stevens win in NY!

By Matt Richardson at ringside

Crowd pleasing local heavyweight Vinny Maddalone sent his fans home happy on Thursday night at Russo’s on the Bay restaurant in Howard Beach, New York when his opponent, journeyman Benji Baker, did not come out for the fifth round of a scheduled eight in the main event of a card promoted by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing. Maddalone (32-5, 23 KO’s) dominated the fight; knocking Baker down in the first, third and fourth rounds. It was the first fight for Maddalone since losing a decision to unbeaten heavyweight Denis Boystov last November. It was also the first time Baker (18-7, 9 KO’s) had fought since 2001. While he didn’t fight particularly well (he may have won the second round) he was more competitive than his record or recent activity rate would have suggested prior to the encounter. In the co-feature, super middleweight contender Curtis “Showtime” Stevens won an eight-round unanimous decision over journeyman Dan Mouton. (More to come)
