Warren rips Braehmer

Frank Warren has branded WBO light heavyweight champion Jurgen Braehmer “unprofessional” and a “disgrace” after he pulled out of Saturday’s clash with Nathan Cleverly. “Braehmer was due to fly into the UK on Tuesday,” explained the promoter. “We got a call saying that he had missed his flight, but would land in the UK on Wednesday at 12pm. We sent a car to pick him up from the airport, but he didn’t show up. I then read on the internet that he has a cut and won’t be fighting. We then found out that his team had emailed their hotel at 8:30am on Wednesday morning and cancelled their rooms. Neither Braehmer nor his promoters have picked up the phone and had the decency to explain to me what is going on. He is completely unprofessional, and the WBO should impose the ultimate sanction, which is to strip him of his title. It’s one of the most unprofessional things I have seen in my time in boxing. It’s a complete joke, an utter disgrace.”

Braehmer-Cleverly off

WBO light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer will not be able to defend his title against interim titlist Nathan Cleverly on Saturday in London after a cut suffered in training reopened on Tuesday. Braehmer will not be traveling to London today as scheduled.

Cleverly is still planning to fight a late substitute on Saturday night. Promoter Frank Warren is seeking to have the WBO strip Braehmer of the belt and have Cleverly elevated to full championship status.

This is the third straight fight Braehmer has pulled out of. First he pulled out of a July 2010 defense against Alejandro Lakatus in Schwein, Germany, citing a back injury. Then in January he pulled out of a title unification clash with WBA champ Beibut Shumenov in Kazakhstan after allegedly falling ill.

Martinez eyes October return

By Francisco Salazar

Middleweight king and one of the best fighters in the world today Sergio Martinez will return to the ring in early October, promoter Lou DiBella told Fightnews.com. Martinez has been penciled in to fight the winner of the Sebastian Zbik-Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. world title bout, which will take place on June 4th at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. DiBella is looking at three different venues to host the fight, depending on the fighter who wins the bout or against Marco Antonio Rubio.

Sampson Lewkowicz, advisor to Martinez, confirmed that the bout will take place in Connecticut should Zbik come out victorious next month. “Zbik has verbally accepted an offer to fight Martinez should he beat Chavez,” Lewkowicz told Fightnews.com. “If Chavez wins, then the WBC will dictate who he will fight.” (more…)

Green, Tarver Presser Quotes

Photos: Team Tarver

Yesterday Antonio Tarver and Danny Green had their first press conference at the Sydney Entertainment Center, site of their July 20 IBF cruiser clash billed as “Judgment Day.” Both fighters were very respectful to each other, but also very confident about victory.

Antonio Tarver: “This is a big fight for both of us. I know he’s tough and not going to let me just walk in his backyard and take the title without making a strong showing for himself. I have to take it from him and I don’t expect the fight to go the distance. I’m not planning on going 12 rounds with this fight. I want to get him out early, because 12 rounds with Danny Green is a lot of work and he has knockout power. I have no plans being on Danny Green’s resume as a lost. I’m sure he’s going to try and test the waters with his aggressive style like he did against Roy Jones Jr., but I’m no Roy Jones Jr..”

Danny Green: “Antonio Tarver is going to be a hard fighter for me to hit. He has size, skills, experience and he’s a southpaw.. It’s going to be tough fight for me. I’m not planning on giving up my World Title. I have a lot of homework to do. This will no doubt be the hardest fight of my career. If I’m not prepared, I will lose this fight. What I like about this fight is it will allow me another opportunity to make my name and it will open other doors for me. I will be ready on July 20th.”

Cleverly focused on Braehmer

Nathan Cleverly has welcomed Carl Froch’s admission that he’s Froch’s radar, but is focusing first on his world title fight this Saturday night against WBO light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer at The O2 in London. “I’ve got nothing but respect for Froch and that would be a cracking fight down the line,” said Cleverly. “If Froch does intend to come up to light-heavyweight, then who better to fight than me with a world title on the line? I’ve got to get a big win on the world stage first, and it won’t come much bigger than Braehmer. He’s the only thing that I’m focused on at the moment, and I’m not taking my eye off the ball this Saturday because a win is crucial. First I’ve got to deal with Braehmer in style on Saturday night, then not only will Froch take me seriously, but so will the Americans. This is my chance to put myself in the spotlight and I intend to take it.” The fight can be seen live in the UK on Sky Box Office, in Germany via a PPV webcast on BILD.de, and in the USA on EPIX.
