Thinking of offering my services to spar Rigondeux, When he punches me in the guts I will most likely projectile vomet all over him, As he reals and wipes himself down I'll hit him in the chops. plant a few seeds of doubt in his mind. Reactionary body shots will no doubt produce the same result. May lose half a stone and kidney function for a while but give him a sore head and bad test in his mouth. Hey if an Irish bum hurts him he might start to think he's in the wrong part of the world.

Think it will be announced tomorrow,The promoters are at last going to pay the 40k or so for the outside broadcast and then they will recoup that on advertisement,Corner post, canvass,signs around the ring etc.
Peters usually gets rte to pay for it but brings them the sponsorship hunky dorys yanying beer and the rest.
This should have been sorted earlier but at least those not attending will be able to watch.

Khan overlooking McCloskey?
1 March 2011 - Jonny Stapleton Amir Khan is in serious danger of overlooking and underestimating the latest challenger to his WBA light-welterweight crown, Paul McCloskey.
Team Khan have spent weeks hyping the undefeated European champion as a worthy adversary for boxing’s latest sensation to the British and American public. But if actions speak louder than words Khan’s suggest that, despite playing up the Derry stylist's chances, he truly foresees a routine home victory in his homecoming bout on April 19.
Amazingly the Golden Boy promoted puncher has already begun talks with Timothy Bradely regarding a massive light-welterweight unification title bout. In fact the Bolton star has already agreed a “deal in principle” to fight the WBC and WBO champ on July 23 according to Gary Shaw, Alexander’s promoter.
Shaw admitted he and Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy Promotions, who represents Khan, have a deal in place. Whilst such talks might appear disrespectful to the skilful European Champion, Team McCloskey will take solace in fact team Khan are underestimating his obvious talent. It also means that if McCloskey emerges victorious from the mouth watering MEN arena English-Irish clash he can take a major step towards a 140-pound summit meeting and replace Khan as Bradley’s challenger.
“My next goal is to unify the division and beat Bradley. I am happy to fight him in America. I definitely want that fight in the summertime, he’s the guy I want,” Khan admitted recently and it seems if he wins he could get his wish.
“I had a good meeting with Gary and had conversations with the Khans. Amir has a fight ahead of him. But my belief is that based on the conversations I had with Gary and the Khans, we are going to strike a deal re a fight with Bradely,” Schaefer of Golden Boy said.




Well is he

No not even slightly. Par for the course to have provisional deals for big fights lined up.

So there's a Dolphil press conference tomorrow...

If they're announcing the undercard, will it be likely that Willie will be there or just the undercard fighters?

Live boxing on the box
2 March 2011 Setanta Sports is presenting fight fans with exclusively live coverage of some of March’s biggest nights in professional and amateur boxing as well as a second chance to relive some of the greatest fights of all time. Setanta’s Marketing Director Brian Quinn commented, “Setanta are keen to show some great boxing at a great price throughout March and then see how the boxing public responds. In March we currently have 3 World title fights lined-up including Brian Magee v Bute. We are also showing three live nights of the World Series of Boxing featuring some of Ireland’s finest amateurs. It all starts this weekend with Zab Judah’s title fight live from New Jersey. The good thing is that the fights are all included in a monthly Setanta subscription so there are no expensive pay per view nights. New subscribers can join Setanta from as little as €8.49 per month (£5.99 in NI) so it’s great value for a lot of boxing.”
5th March Zab Judah v Kaizer Mabuza
Vacant IBF light-welterweight title, Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey
New York’s ‘Super’ Zab Judah will have one eye on April 16’s Amir Khan v Paul McCloskey WBA light-welterweight title fight when he goes head-to-head with South Africa’s Kaizer Mabuza for the vacant IBF title on Saturday night. For the ever controversial 33-year-old, it is one last chance to show that he belongs at boxing’s top table. If Judah prevails and reclaims the title he first held in February 2000 he will have his sights set on a major unification battle with the likes of Khan or division number one Timothy Bradley.
19th March Lucian Bute v Brian Magee
IBF super-middleweight title, Bell Centre, Montreal
After 12 years as a professional, in a career that has yielded British, European and IBO honours, Lisburn’s Brian Magee finally gets a crack at a recognised World title when he faces Canadian-based, Romanian IBF super-middleweight champion Lucian Bute on March 19. Magee’s shot at the big time was to have come much sooner, indeed he was scheduled to challenge Welsh legend Joe Calzaghe for the WBO title at Belfast’s King’s Hall as far back as March 2005, but the bout was called off at 24 hours notice due to a legal challenge from Calzaghe’s then No1 challenger Mario Veit. But with 35-year-old Magee now enjoying an Indian summer to his career, which saw the southpaw claim the European title in January 2010, he has forced his opportunity and is confident of taking it.
The challenge that awaits Magee is substantial. Bute is tall (6’2”), like Magee is a southpaw, and as his unbeaten 27-0 (22KO) record implies he can punch a bit as well. What’s more, Bute’s record highlights that he can stop opponents early and late. For many fight fans, Bute is the best super-middleweight in the World – indeed Boxrec, the independent online ranking system ranks him ahead of all other 12st stars, including Carl Froch, Mikkel Kessler, Andre Dirrell, Andre Ward and WBO champion Robert Stieglitz, who Magee had initially been rumoured to be challenging. Going into Bute’s adopted hometown is unlikely to faze Magee especially on St Patrick’s weekend when a large Irish support is expected to make their way to the arena.
26th March Dmitry Pirog v Javier Francisco Maciel
WBO middleweight title, DIVS, Ekaterinburg, Russia
Big, strong and unbeaten, there are many who believe that Russia’s WBO champion Dmitry Pirog may well be the best 11st 6lb boxer on the planet. That, despite the 30-year-old having boxed all but two of his 17 professional contests in his home country. The bout that made the outside world sit up and take note was last July, when boxing in Las Vegas for the first time, Pirog blasted out the talented and then unbeaten American Daniel Jacobs in five rounds, claiming the vacant WBO title in the process.
Pirog now returns to Russia, where he will be dealing with Argentinean challenger Javier Francisco Maciel, 18-1 (12KO) on March 26.
World Series Boxing
In the past boxing may have been the most individual of sports, but World Series Boxing (WSB) has changed all that. What’s more, WSB has blurred the growing lines between boxing’s amateur and professional codes. The boxers retain their Olympic status but the boxing is done without headguards or vests and contests embrace professional style scoring in 5x3 minute bouts.
In WSB, ten teams (LA, Memphis, Mexico City, Miami, Astana, Baku, Beijing, Pohang, Istanbul, Milan, Moscow and Paris) are divided into three conferences (Americas, Asia and Europe) to battle it out in league matches from November until March. A WSB match consists of five bouts in five weight divisions, namely bantamweight (54kg), lightweight (61kg), middleweight (73kg), light-heavyweight (85kg) and heavyweight (91+kg).
The top four teams (three conference winners and best runner up) then progress to the semi-final and final stages which take place in April and May and the overall champion is crowned.
Individual finals between the two highest ranking boxers in each of the five weight divisions are also contested in May. Each team consists of between 10 and 20 boxers with at least three and up to six foreign boxers on each team. As such, although Ireland is not home to a team, there is considerable Irish interest in WSB - with Olympians Kenny Egan and John Joe Joyce representing Miami and Paris respectively whilst Ulstermen Eamon O’Kane and Tommy McCarthy are signed to Milan. In March, Setanta will televise three WSB fixtures live with McCarthy and O’Kane’s Milan and John Joe Nevin’s Paris clashing in a St Patrick’s special on March 18.
Live fixtures in March
Friday 11th March 8pm Paris v Moscow
Friday 18th March 8 pm Milan V Paris
Saturday 19th March 3am Mexico City v Memphis
All this great live boxing content plus classic fights every week on Fight Sports Greatest Classics.

Way better fight than that Bulgarian dude. If Brickfists can do what Kiko couldn't and stop this guy he'll be making a serious statement. Good luck Carlos!
