Wladimir Klitschko May Face Chris Arreola

According to recent reports, current IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir "Steelhamer" Klitschko (52-3, 46 KOs) may select an optional defense against current #2 IBF ranked Chris Areeola (26-0, 23 KOs) for his next fight sometime in April or May 2009. Negotiations are under way. And if Wlad wins this fight, he has by September 13th, 2009 to defend his belts against IBF #1 ranked contender Alexander Povetkin who had to back out of his fight with Wladimir in December due to an ankle injury.

Valuev Gets Gift Decision Against Holyfield

Last Saturday night, the current WBA heavyweight champ Nicolai "The Russian Giant" Valuev got an early Christmas gift by getting the nod from 2 of the judges that he won the 12 round WBA title match against the 46 year old, 4 time heavyweight champion Evander "The Real" Deal Holyfield.

I had thought before the fight that this might be an upset-- well if you consider the champion losing to a 46 year old 4 time heavyweight champion an upset-- because although Holyfield's reflexes are shot, and have been shot for awhile now, this weakness is only exploited by someone who can test his reflexes. That would mean a good counter puncher, and/or someone with significant speed and defensive skills---Chris Byrd and James Toney would fit this criteria and both have beaten Holyfield a few years back.

Valuev has/had none of those traits. He wins his fights due to having a OK jab and right cross that can reach opponents fairly easily since he towers over most and has a significant reach advantage, and because most opponents don't move. When I say OK jab I mean it has decent speed for a man that size but still slow enough that someone with even shot reflexes can escape if they use movement to their advantage.

Like Chagaev, Holyfield found success in movement and this kept Valuev from setting up. Valuev's body movement is too slow to adjust to anyone that gives him any modest lateral movement. Holyfield despite having shot reflexes, has been and is in tremendous physical condition, and has the combos down pat. This is why I believed Holyfield would cause Valuev problems. I knew that Valuev is vulnerable to being hit when movement is involved, and I knew that Holyfield perfection of boxing patterns would be enough to gain points for Holyfield. Holyfield didn't have to worry about Valuev's power, because although he's a huge man he doesn't have that knockout power you'd expect. So I figured the upset would come in the form of a 12 round decision. This is what happened...

Holyfield from the very start displayed great athleticism for any man at any age by keeping on his toes and selecting his shots against the much taller and almost 100 pound larger Valuev. The movement kept Valuev from setting up with anything significant, while Holyfield got on the inside and hit Valuev with some great hard hooks. Despite what I considered a great performance by Holyfield, Valuev got the decision. I don't see how, considering Holyfield not only threw and landed the most shots throughout the fight, but also landed the harder shots. Valuev followed Holyfield around the ring, but this doesn't constitute aggressiveness in my opinion which may have been favored in the eyes of the judges had it been considered that. If anyone was being aggressive, it was Holyfield moving in and selecting his shots. The judges scored the fight 114-114, 116-112, 115-114 in Valuev's favor. I had the fight 118-110 for Holyfield. Here's the video of the fight what do you think?

Holyfield 214 Valuev 310!!!!

Talk about a size mismatch! The 4 time heavyweight champion Evander "The Real Deal" Holyfield (47-9-2, 27 KOs) weighted in at exactly 214 ¼ lbs while the 2 time and current WBA heavyweight champion Nicolai “The Russian Giant” Valuev (49-1, 34 KOs) weighted in at exactly 310 ¾ lbs for the 12 round WBA heavyweight championship tomorrow night.




Foreman Comments On Holyfield Fighting Valuev

The former oldest heavyweight champion(at 45) George Foreman(now 59) recently had a few words about Evander Holyfield's fight this Saturday, Decemeber 20th against current WBA heavyweight champion Nicolai Valuev, and about how he feels, as many do, that it's time for Evander to leave the sport of boxing.

"I hope he'll achieve it (getting the WBA belt) and leave boxing alone. He's been a terrible reflection on the heavyweight division. Win, lose, or draw, he should move away from boxing for the sake of leaving a good name for the sport."

"His head is starting to attract punches. I don't like it, I really don't like it. He was never a big, strong man. He's a frail guy and he's getting the worst of it every time he boxes."

"We just don't know how to move on. All of us. I stayed in too long myself. You fall in love with something you ought not to fall in love with. It's like falling in love with a bad girl who does not love you, who's done with you yet you keep hanging on."

"I hope he becomes heavyweight champion of the world again so he can walk away."


Good luck to Evander tomorrow night, and whether win, lose, or draw, I agree with George in hopes he makes his decision to step down from boxing after this fight.

Hat's Off To Haye

I don't believe this was on the air, but at one point during the Wladimir Klitshcko vs. Hasim Rahman title match, Vitali Klitschko steals the cowboy hat that David Haye is wearing. On the air it did show them talking about a potential match between them so this may have been some point after that. Although this video is very short, it's worth watching. Enjoy!

Gomez: Haye! Vitali's Mine!

#1 WBC mandatory Juan Carlos Gomez recently had a few words after he found out that former cruiserweight champion turned heavyweight contender David "Hayemaker" Haye was in negotiations with a fight with Vitali Klitschko in June. This is what Gomez had to say:

"I understand how this kid feels and what he thinks. In fact, we have a lot in common. We both used to be the best cruiserweights in the world, now we both want to become world heavyweight champions and get rid of those annoying Ukrainians. But, David, I got one advice for you: Keep your hands off Vitali. He's mine. You can go after Wladimir if you want. He will be easier to handle for you anyways. If you desperately want to fight Vitali you will have to wait until I stripped his belt from him. After we dethroned both Klitschko sisters we can go on and find out one on one who is the best heavyweight fighter in the world if you want. It will be my honor and pleasure to beat you up to become undisputed heavyweight champion of the world."




Toney Squeaks By Oquendo

Who would think that the late replacement for Tony "The Tiger" Thompson(who was out from a acute bronchitis infection that did not allow him to train) would end up almost beating James Toney last Saturday night. But, that's exactly what Fres Oquendo almost did. It ended up being a split decision, and many in the boxing community had it a win for Oquendo. Oquendo threw 742 punches and connected with 222 while Toney threw 491 and landed 154. Toney was the aggressor though and landed more power shot at 67 compared to Oquendo's 59.

So it basically came down to the judges feeling the aggressor deserved the fight even though Oquendo landed more shots. Oquendo found success throughout the night from his jab and from his right hand to the head and body, while Toney displayed great ring generalship and combinations.

The fight happened at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa in Cabazon, Calif and the scorecards read 116-111 for Oquendo, and the other two judges scored the bout 115-112 and 114-113 for Toney.

Oquendo Quotes


"I knew that I won the fight. It was a two-point difference in my opinion. I was stronger and more active in the fight, which worked for me. I deserve a rematch."

Toney Quotes


"This was a tough fight. He did not want to fight all of the rounds with me. I was the aggressor in the fight. He was running from me."

V. Klitschko vs. Haye in June?

According to David Haye himself and Vitali's manager Bernd Boente there may be a really good chance of a fight being made between Haye himself and current WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in June.

This would make a very interesting match and would free up Wladimir to pursue Alexander Povetkin, the IBF mandatory who was supposed to fight this last Saturday but got injured, or Chris Arreola, a solid American heavyweight fighters who's coming off 2 impressive wins to other heavyweight hopefuls.

The only issue is whether Vitali Klitschko would be stripped of his WBC belt if he doesn't 1st defend against Juan Carlos Gomez the WBC's #1 mandatory contender. But do boxing fans really care if the fight happens between Vitali and Haye without a belt? I for one don't, and I believe this would be a far more intriguing match than Vitali Klitschko against Gomez.

Haye Quotes


"We sat down and talked numbers that made sense for both sides, and it's done and dusted. We agreed terms and just need to dot the I's and cross the T's. Plain and simple, this is how boxing should be."

Check out this post for an Bernd Boente interview where he talks about the potential match.

Haye To Attend Klitschko vs. Rahman

From a recent interview from Setanta Sports, current up-and-coming heavyweight David "Hayemaker" Haye says he will be ringside for the IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight title fight between current champion Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko and former 2 time champ Hasim Rahman tomorrow Saturday, December 13th. He has promised to be shouting at the champ. Here's some of what he had to say...

In Regards To The W. Klitschko vs. Rahman Fight


"I know he's [Wladimir] going to go out there and look spectacular. I want him to look spectacular because his last few fights haven't been the most dynamic. But Rahman's going to bring it. Rahman's going to try and land that right hand, that big right hand that KO'd the great Lennox Lewis."

In Regards To Which Klitschko Brother He May Face


"He doesn't have to fight Povetkin until September. He's got a good few months to slip in a voluntary fight with a top ranked heavyweight contender like myself. Wladimir's schedule is a lot clearer than Vitali's. Vitali's got to fight Juan Carlos Gomez in March, so he wouldn't be able to fight over the summer."

W. Klitschko Talks About Haye & The Division

Current WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko was recently quoted on his opinion of David "Hayemaker" Haye's new splash in the heavyweight ranks and the heavyweight division itself. He's looking forward to 2009 and has a title fight this Saturday December 13th with 2 time former heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman.

Wladimir Klitschko On Haye


"David Haye decided to make himself famous by promoting himself. He's loud but only actions in the ring can show whether it's empty words. David Haye is much shorter so he needs to talk a lot to get attention. He makes a lot of noise. It's too early to judge how he will do as a heavyweight but if he continues to behave like that I will probably consider meeting him in the ring to stop it.

There is nothing wrong with him stepping into the heavyweight division, he is welcome. I told him to get in line. Now he's had his first fight he's stepped closer to me. I consider Haye to be like Herbie Hide. They both try to end fights with one punch. They are comparable. David's fast and so is Herbie. But there aren't many examples of fighters moving up to heavyweight and doing well - Evander Holyfield is an amazing exception."

Wladimir Klitschko On The Heavyweight Division


"Next year is going to be a very exciting time for the heavyweight division because suddenly there are names. We have to make the crossover and you do that by getting more fighters with names involved. More people will pay attention to the division if we have more recognisable faces.

"Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson made the crossover - it was not just boxing fans who knew their names, everyone did. Evander Holyfield and George Foreman are other examples. Names allow us to crossover from the boxing community into the majority. We need characters in the heavyweights and now we have some. With Chris Arreola from the States, Haye from Britain and Nikolay Valuev from Russia we have some interest in the division once more."

W. Klitschko Rahman 2nd Press Conference

Today in large appliance store in a industrial neighborhood outside Mannheim Manheim, Germany, there was the 2nd and presumably final press conference between current WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko and 2 time heavyweight champion and IBF mandatory replacement(due toe the #1 IBF mandatory Alexander Povetkin's ankle injury) Hasim "The Rock" Rahman.

Rahman looked tired throughout the press conference due to jet lag and it being 6 am at the time of the conference. He did manage to keep his eyes well open during the customary stare down and promised to put on a good performance Saturday. Both fighters have proclaimed to end the fight early. Here are some quotes.

Rahman Quotes


"I am a little sleepy right now, but I am looking forward to putting on a good performance," Rahman said. "It will be a great fight."

"I've learned from the past and I'm very well prepared. The area here is still Klitschko-land, but on Sunday morning this will be Rahman-land. I will win the fight early."

"I know he is extremely strong and quick. I have to be ready to take punishment and to dish it out. I am very fit and well prepared."

Steward Quotes


"Wladimir has worked very intently. He knows what Rahman can do and takes him very seriously. We have big respect for Rahman, because he's a dangerous opponent."

"Wladimir is very focused. He realizes how dangerous a puncher Hasim is. We take him very seriously. We consider him more dangerous than Povetkin. We expect a very tough fight. Wladimir considers him the most dangerous one-punch fighter he's ever faced."

Klitschko Quotes


"Hasim Rahman is a real challenger. For him it's probably his last chance at the title. He has certainly not come to lose....I'm prepared to go twelve rounds, but a clear win means an early win. It can happen in any round. I will try to win the fight as clearly as I can."

"I am not going to underestimate him in any way. I am going to do my job and I will try to do it quickly."

"This is his last chance to be a world champion again. I expect a real challenge. If he comes such a long way to fight the best man, he wants to win naturally."



Oquendo To Replace Thompson For Toney Fight

Due to a bad case of Bronchitis, Tony "The Tiger" Thompson, who was scheduled to face James "Lights Out" Toney (70-6-3, 43 KOs) this Saturday the 13th, is out of the his scheduled fight. As a replacement heavyweight contender Fres “The Big O” Oquendo (29-4, 18 KOs) will face Toney instead.

Oquendo has been in the mix with big name fighters such as Chris Byrd, David Tua, and John Ruiz. He was extremely competitive in all these matches and has won his last 3 bouts.

Oquendo Quotes


"I was training for a fight that was recently cancelled, and when I was informed that I had the chance to fight Toney, there was zero hesitation. This was the opportunity I was looking for. It gets me right back into a position to challenge for a World Title.”

W. Klitschko vs. Rahman Prediction

With only 1 week until the showdown between current WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko and former 2 time heavyweight champ Hasim "The Rock" Rahman this next Saturday December the 13th, I thought it was due time for my prediction of the fight.

I will state right off the bat that this is Wladimir's fight to win. The question is how he will win. That's the grey area. Wladimir as of late, with the exception of Ray Austin, has taken his fights into the later rounds. But, due to his size, and great punching power in either hand, he could easily "accidentally" knock someone out even when playing it safe and just jabbing and throwing the occasional right cross. He has shown however the ability to explosively stop a fight like he did when he fought Ray Austin or earlier in his career. He usually steps it up more if he feels his opponent is disrespecting which Austin was apparently doing.

It is because of this ability to knock a fighter out early when he wants to or just by accident, combined with the fact that Hasim Rahman seems to be fairly easy to hit and doesn't have the best of chins and may have disrespected Wladimir by disrespecting at the very least his brother Vitali, that I believe this fight will end early. I predict a KO/TKO win for Wladimir by round 4.

I don't see Rahman at this stage of his career at his age and recent display to compete highly with Wladimir. His only shot really is hoping he can land that haymaker shot on Wladimir's jaw, but the likelihood of him doing so and actually KOing Wladimir and not just knocking him down is slim to none.

So TKO/KO win for Wlad by round 4 is my prediction. What do you think?

Haye On Fighting Vitali Klitschko

David Haye had a few words recently about the potential match up with current WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko after defeating Monte Barrett.

"I watched that fight [Vitali against Samuel Peter] and I thought to myself ‘is this it?’ Is this the mountain I’ve got to climb? I can do it, I know I can. There are so many things he did that I can exploit with my speed and power. Even the punches he throws I can see coming! I think I’m the best and I’m willing to fight the best to prove it. Just like at cruiserweight. A lot of people said you haven’t got a chance of beating Mormeck; you haven’t got a chance of beating Maccarinelli. Those are the guys I went after. Now everyone’s saying you haven’t got a chance against Vitali, so I’m going after the guy who’s solid as a rock."


Booth On Which Klitschko Haye Will Fight

After David "Hayemaker" Haye's recent 5th round victory over heavyweight contender Monte Barrett, Haye's manager Adam Booth had a couple words about which Klitschko might be the one to face his fighter while speaking to Setanta Sports News.

"At first they were talking about Wladimir, now they pull Wladimir out and offer me Vitali." Booth added that it was a case of either fighting the brother "with better punches and a weaker chin or the one with the better chin but who has slowed considerably over the last few years."


Bowe On Undercard Of Klitschko Rahman

Looks like the former champion Riddick Bowe will fight an opponent yet to be named on the under card of the Wladimir Klitschko vs. Hasim Rahman title fight this December 13th. Here's what "Big Daddy" Bowe said about his latest comeback:

"I'm glad to box professionally again. I feel that I have some big fights left in me and I wanna get one more shot at a world title."

Although it went to decision, the action did intesify in the 7th when Grant knocked down Marinaccio twice. He went on to win the decision with the scores 119-107, 119-107, 117-107.

Haye Crushes Barrett

Making an impressive statement to the heavyweight scene former cruiser weight champion turned heavyweight David "Hayemaker" Haye (22-1, 21 KOs) easily defeated 2 time title challenger and heavyweight contender Monte "Two Gunz" Barrett(34-7, 20 KOs) tonight at the O2 Arena in London.

Haye knocked Barrett down a total of 5 times in route to a 5Th round TKO win at the 1:28 minute mark of the round.

Vitali Klitschko was at the match, and was interested in a potential showdown with Haye in the future, but didn't rule out that his brother may take his shot against him as well.

I personally was surprised at how easily Haye handled Barrett. I thought that Haye would get popped a few times and his chin would be in question, but he seems to have made the transition quite well to heavyweight. Look for a mega fight between Haye and 1 of the Klitschko's in the coming year.

Check out the Haye/Barrett fight video below:

The time was 2:54, and the 26 year old Dimitrenko retained his WBO Intercontinental belt and is next in line for current WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko as a mandatory. Stay tuned here for more information on this potential Dimitrenko/Klitschko match-up in the future.

Barrett vs. Haye Predictions

Who's going to win tomorrows fight between Monte Barrett & David Haye? A few top dogs in the boxing world share their opinion.

Tony Jeffries On David Haye vs Monte Barrett


Olympic Bronze Medalist Tony Jeffries talks about his future plans & previews David Haye vs Monte Barrett....

Paul Dempsey On David Haye vs Monte Barrett


Setanta's Paul Dempsey & The Daily Telegraph's Gareth A Davies preview David Haye vs Monte Barrett....


My Prediction


This one is a little hard. Barrett is a seasoned fighter who has a lot of experience and is good at spoiling fighters who are up-and-coming at heavyweight such as his last fight with Tye Fields.

David Haye on the other had is a gread cruiserwieght champion, but he has a lot of unknown variables at play on how he will handle a experienced heavyweight such as Barrett. How much power will carry over at heavyweight against a guy with a decent jaw? He did fight 1 heavyweight fight against Tomasz Bonin awhile back, but this was against a guy who I believe was severely overrated in the rankings at the time and whom got knocked down a few months prior against a fighter( Pavel Silvin) who had no fights at all 0-0-0!

But, the fight is taking place in the home crowd of Haye, so this is going to give him an edge, but not a major 1 because Monte is used to being the underdog and fighting in adverse situations. Youth is also on Haye's side, but I believe Barrett is going to be in the best shape he's been in for quite awhile so this isn't going to be a huge factor. Barrett is also more naturally fit for his weight than Haye, at least at this moment, and will have a physical size advantage.

I think this fight could be a upset. It's going to come down to a battle of chins. I think Haye is going to be surprised by Barrett's speed and power, and I think Barrett is going to be surprised by Haye's. I think Haye will land more punches on Barrett, but I don't think Haye will take Barrett's punches and I call an upset within 3 rounds, and a TKO/KO win for Barrett.

Again this was a hard one to call, but I'm going with who's tried and tested at heavyweight. I just don't think Haye's chin is good enough to take the power at heavyweight. But, we'll soon see!

Steward Speaks Before Klitschko Rahman Fight

Hall of Fame boxing trainer Emanuel Steward, talked recently on a radio show from Boxingscene.com called KO Cafe and spoke about Wladimir Klitschko's upcoming fight on December 13 in Germany with Hasim Rahamn, and also talks about a possible showdown with David Haye for next summer.

Steward On Rahman's Chances


"Rahman's punch. He's a heavy-handed strong guy, not the fastest guy but he can punch. If Wladimir comes out and operates at full speed, I don't think anyone can make it out of two-rounds with him. He has a techincal way of fighting. I was surprised when he opened up on Ray Austin and knocked Austin out in the second round. He has a lot of control over his opponents with his balance and his height and his leverage and his left jab. Rahman can still punch."

"Rahman doesn't have a lot going for him, but he still has that memory of knocking out Lennox Lewis and I'm sure he's going to remind me at every press conference I bet. He did that with one punch and he's got the biggest hands of any man that I ever saw in my life. It's going to be a puncher against an all-around better techincal fighter."


Steward On Haye


"The next big superfight we think for Wladimir will probably be against David Haye. I think it would be a good fight for Wladimir, next year with him. A fight with David Haye and Wladimir will be a good fight because they are both good punchers. I think Wladimir's physical size will be a big factor for anybody, except maybe (Nikolai) Valuev. Some guys are tall but crouch down and go from 6'4 to 5'10. The Klitschko boys, Wladimir and Vitali, are tall fighters who look taller when you fight them because they fight in a tall manner."

Povetkin Will Remain #1 Mandatory

The IBF #1 mandatory Alexander Povetkin was supposed to face current WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitchko this December 13. Instead, he he unfortunately got an ankle injury and had to pull out of the fight.

Hasim Rahman, who is the highest ranking available opponent in the IBF, will now face Klitschko on December 13th, and will count as a IBF mandatory for Klitschko. However, the IBF president Marian W. Muhammad confirmed via an official letter to Sauerland Event managing director Chris Meyer that the 29-year-old will remain the IBF #1 mandatory and will face the winner of Klitschko´s fight with Hasim Rahman next year. This is what Marian Muhammad had to say:

“Mr. Povetkin will remain in the No. 1 position in the heavyweight rankings. As Wladimir Klitschko has elected to fight the next leading available contender to complete his mandatory, Mr. Povetkin will be designated the next mandatory for the winner of the bout between Wladimir Klitschko vs. Hasim Rahman. If Klitschko retains the title on December 13, Povetkin should fight in a mandatory within the next nine months. If Rahman wins, he would have one year to make his mandatory defence against the White Lion."

Povetkin´s co-manager, Vlad Hrunov had a few words in response to the IBF presidents latest words..

“We are happy that Alexander will be given the chance to fight the winner next year. Alexander will take his time to recover from the injury and then get back in shape. I have no doubts he will be the new heavyweight champion in 2009.”


I think this a good thing for Povetkin. I don't think he was anywhere near ready to face Klitschko, but within a years time he should be able to face a couple more opponents to get some added experience he needs before he faces Klitschko(or Rahman,which I doubt will be the case) next year.

Ray Austin Interview

James Slater had a interview recently with "The Rain Man" Ray Austin 26-4-4(17) after his 1st round blow out of Andrew Golota on November 7th in China. This is how it went:

James Slater: Congratulations on the win over Andrew Golota. You must be very happy with the quick win?

Ray Austin: Oh, yes, I'm pretty happy right now..

J.S: Do you feel you shut up a few critics with the win?

R.A: Definitely. I was the underdog going into the fight, but I knew I had to go in there and handle my business.

J.S: You sure did that. Were you surprised yourself when Golota went down so fast in the opening round?

R.A: Yes, I was as surprised as everybody else when that happened. We had our game-plan - to see what he had and then take it from there. I knew I was going to attack him in the 1st round and then see whether or not he could take it. If he had taken it I would've boxed him from then on in.

J.S: Is there any word yet on what's next for you. Will there be any kind of title shot by way of a reward for your good win?

R.A: You have to ask Don [King] about that. But anything is possible.

J.S: You have a number of draws on your record, were they bad decisions?

R.A: Those draws were really wins. The one with Sultan Ibragimov was a great win for me but they took it from me and called it a draw. It's really a no-brainer that I won that fight when they called it a draw in his home-town and when the fight was held in his promoter's casino. They felt they were going to blow me out of the water in that fight, but I was in shape and I was ready.

J.S: Am I right in saying you weighed your lowest ever at 228 pounds for the Golota fight?

R.A: That's right, the lowest ever. That weight is ideal for me. That's the game-plan now, to stay at that weight. I'm strong there, I'm fast there and I'm flexible there.

J.S: Just talking about your 2nd round loss to Wladimir Klitschko last year. Was it a mental thing or was he just a huge puncher?

R.A: It was a mental thing. I was inexperienced and some other fighters have told me they think I froze in there. I wish I could tell you what happened, but that just wasn't me in there. I'm a much better fighter than I looked in that fight.

J.S: Would you like a rematch?

R.A: Definitely.

J.S: When do you plan to fight again? When will you get back in training?

R.A: I sparred four rounds today. I want to get back in the ring soon. I'd fight again tomorrow if I could, I'd fight again next month. I'm on a roll at the moment and you definitely want to keep that going. The flight to and from China was like a break for me (laughs). That was a very long flight.

J.S: Do you think Don King will promote more shows in China?

R.A: It's possible, yes. The people over there were real hospitable and supportive. That's what we fighters need from the fans, support. Without the fans we wouldn't be boxing.

J.S: Golota was reportedly in the frame for a shot at WBA champion Nikolai Valuev if he'd beaten you, but now it looks like Evander Holyfield will fight Valuev. What do you think about that, has Holyfield got any chance?

R.A: You never know with Holyfield, he's so unpredictable. He looks like he's finished and then he pulls something out of the blue (laughs). I thought Hasim Rahman was going to beat him and you know what happened there, he beat him instead. So now I never doubt him.

J.S: Do you wish it were you going in there against Valuev though?

R.A: Of course, but it is what it is. Don's [King] got some other plan in mind for me. After over 30 years in the sport he knows what he's doing (laughs). I have faith in Don.

J.S: Just a quick word about our guy in Britain, David Haye. What do you think of him as a fighter?

R.A: Well, I know Monte Barrett personally but I've only heard about Haye. I've heard that he's a good fighter and a force to be reckoned with. But Monte is coming to fight (on November 15th). I know he's not coming to lie down. So if Haye can beat him he'll have proven he is a real force.

J.S: It's been great speaking with you, Ray. For my final question, how did you get the nickname "Rain Man?"

R.A: It's because I always throw lots of punches in a fight, like I did in the 1st round against Golota. Back when I was fighting one time a commentator made the remark that I was throwing so many punches I was raining down punches on my opponent. So ever since then I've been "The Rain Man!"

J.S: Thank you for talking to me, Ray. We look forward to your next fight.

R.A: Okay, thank you.

Dimitrenko-Krasniqi Press Conference

This Saturday night at the Burg-Wächter Castello in Düsseldorf unbeaten WBO #1 heavyweight Alexander Dimitrenko (28-0, 18 KOs) will take on 37-year-old long time contender Luan Krasniqi (30-3-1, 14 KOs).

Here are some quotes from the different parties at the final press conference which took place at "Uerige," a local Düsseldorf brewery:

Dimitrenko Quotes


"It can't go wrong. I've had the best preparation and am psychologically at my best. I have the best trainer and God is behind me. Everything is good. I will win!"

Fritz Sdunek -Dimitrenko's Trainer Quotes


"We all know each other very well and this is one of the most unpopular and unpleasant intra-stall bouts. Everyones' nerves will be on edge even more than usual. Sascha is in the best physical and psychological condition. Whoever has the stronger psyche wins. One punch can decide it!"

Krasniqi Quotes


"I'm grateful that I got the chance to box against the #1 world ranked fighter. I also see it as Fritz Sdunek does, the better nerves will decide it. I've already had difficult times behind me and people have often said it was my 'last chance' but I'm still here. A person learns more from losses than from victories. Physically I feel like a 28-year-old. Vitali Klitschko is the same age as me and after a four year break he became world champion again. That is also my goal. I am up for this fight against the #1 as seldom before and want to win, no matter how!"

Valentin Silaghi-Krasniqi's New Trainer Quotes


"I've trained Luan now for more than a year. This fight was already set once. I admire my longtime friend, trainer Fritz Sdunek and have high respect for his work and his successes. For this fight, even though we already know them well, we've studied the DVDs and prepared very well for this fight. I hope that we have the better nerves!"



On the under card their will be a couple other heavyweight matches including a fight between unbeaten WBO #9/WBA #12 heavyweight Denis Boytsov (22-0, 18 KOs) and rugged warrior Vinny Maddalone (31-4, 22 KOs), and local heavyweight Markus Tomala (4-0, 2 KOs) against Jevgenijs Stamburskis (5-17, 1 KO).

Other non-heavyweight fights include Dimitri Sartison (22-1, 14 KOs) against Edison Francisco Guedes (11-7-1, 5 KOs), and WBA #3 super middleweight Gusmyl Perdomo (15-2, 9 KOs) against Laurent Goury (14-17, 2 KOs).

Ahmet Öner Interview

Ahmet Öner, who is the CEO of the new promotional compan ARENA, recently fought to make sure his fighter #1 rated heavyweight Juan Carlos Gomez got a crack at current WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko at the 46th annual WBC Convention in Chengdu (China). He got his wish, because the WBC has made it mandatory for Vitali to challenge Gomez as a mandatory title defense immediately.

Here's how the interview went....

How do you feel after this decision, Mr. Öner?

Ahmet Öner: “I feel great, of course! I am looking forward to this big fight – not only as promoter but as a boxing fan. Like it or not – this is definitely one of the best possible match-ups in heavyweight boxing today!”

What does this fight mean for you personally and for the boxing world in general?

Ahmet Öner: “For ARENA this is the result of two years of very hard work. When I started this business I wanted the world heavyweight championship. Now we got it and, of course, now we want the big green belt as well. For the boxing world first of all it means that the champion – whoever he may be – has no chance to sneak out of mandatory defenses. We know that Vitali tried all he can to get a voluntary first. But he has to stick to the rules and defend his belt against the No. 1 contender. I want to thank the WBC for this great decision as I believe that it is very important for the reliability in our sport. In addition to that I truly believe that this will be a good fight. Recently we have seen some boring heavyweight championships because there seem to be very few worthy challengers for the Klitschkos.”

Who would you call a “worthy challenger”?

Ahmet Öner: “Most great professional champions have had an outstanding amateur career. Hence Olympic gold medallist Alexander Povetkin is definitely one of the candidates. Alexander Dimitrenko had a great amateur career in the juniors as well but he turned pro quite early so we still have to see whether he got what it takes. Odlanier Solis will certainly be one of the great champions of the future. But at the moment I think Juan is the one fighter with the best chances to actually beat Vitali.”

Why do you think Gomez is good enough to beat Klitschko?

Ahmet Öner: “Juan has proven in his most recent fights against Oliver McCall and Vladimir Virchis that he is in great physical condition and also more focused than he has been through most of his career. Right now we see the best possible Juan Carlos Gomez. He earned the #1 spot and the title shot with hard work. Technically and tactically he is one of the best fighters of his generation. He got great movement, great speed and the experience of ten title defences as cruiserweight champion. Also being a very slick southpaw he is dangerous for every fighter in the world.”

What do you expect from the fight?

Ahmet Öner: “It will definitely be a close and exciting fight. It is hard for me to make any predictions. But right now I got the impression that Vitali might underestimate Juan. And this might be our big chance because Juan will definitely not underestimate Vitali and be very well prepared for a true war.”

The Klitschko management stated that nobody cares about this fight. Do you agree?

Ahmet Öner: Certainly not. I understand that US TV isn’t too happy about the heavyweight scene in general at the moment but that has certainly nothing to do with Gomez vs. Klitschko. I don’t see many much better or bigger fights around at the moment. In addition to that this championship will definitely be huge in Germany because both men are based in Hamburg. The biggest German TV station RTL already stated that they want it. And I believe that this fight might even draw more attention to the heavyweight division internationally because it will be a tough and close fight and none of those one-sided boring mismatches we have seen in the recent past. But I understand why the Kltschkos aren’t interested in the fight. Vitali knows that he could lose to Gomez. So he tries to avoid him. But as a champion he has the responsibility to fight the best challengers in the world.”

Gomez and Klitschko have met before while sparring at the Universum gym. Vitali says that he knocked out the “Black Panther” in one of their sessions…

Ahmet Öner: “In fact I remember those times quite well because I have been a fighter myself at Universum at that time. I don’t think Vitali ever knocked down Juan. But I can recall some sessions where Vitali went out with a bloody nose after getting a good spanking from Gomez. You should not forget that Juan was already world champion when the Klitschko’s just kicked off their careers.”

What do you think when and where the fight might take place? How will you go into the negotiations with K2?

Ahmet Öner: Both Vitali and Wladimir have my number. They can call me and we can meet for discussions. I have no problem with them. If we can’t reach an agreement I will not be afraid to go into a purse bid. I know what a world heavyweight championship is worth and we would be honoured to hold the fight if the Klitschkos think it’s not interesting enough for them. Hamburg is probably the best place for the fight as both men spend lots of time here. But still this is a fight that could be staged everywhere around the world.”

Wladimir Klitschko vs Rahman 1st Press Conference Pics

The following are pictures from the 1st press conference on Friday, November 7th at the SAP Aerna in Mannheim, Germany for the December 13th title fight between WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champ Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko & and former 2 time heavyweight champion Hasim "The Rock" Rahman.

Klitschko Rahman 1st Press Conference

On Friday, November 7th at the SAP Aerna in Mannheim, Germany there was the 1st press conference for the December 13th title fight between WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champ Wladimir "Steelhammer" Klitschko & and former 2 time heavyweight champion Hasim "The Rock" Rahman.

By fighting Rahman, who is the highest available IBF opponent ranking #5, he satisfies his mandatory obligation through the IBF as a replacement to the #1 mandatory Alexander Povetkin who recently had to pull out of their fight due to a injury to his ankle during training.


Here's a video of the press conference.


Dr. J's Son Wins Boxing Match

On the night of Friday, November 7th at the Adamsville Recreation Center in Atlanta, Georgia, new heavyweight boxing prospect and son of the legendary hall of fame NBA basketball star Julius Erving II(a.k.a. Dr. J), Julius Erving III won via KO at 2:59 of the 1st round against Kantrell Cameron.

Erving's skills are reportedely improving a lot under the guidance of former fighter Yahya McClain, but much remains to be seen since this was his 1st fight.


Minto Wants Fight With Valuev

Since Golota is now out of the picture, and there are rumors that a fight between former 4 time heavyweight champion Evander "The Real Deal" Holyfield and "The Beast From The East" Nicolai Valuev are in the works, WBA #15, WBO #11 Brian "The Beast" Minto's (32-2 21 KOs) manager Pat Nelson has strongly voiced his opinion that he would be a far better choice of opponents for Valuev to fight against for his voluntary title defense this December 20th in Zurich. He disagrees with Valuev's manager Boris Dimitrov that Evander is the best choice of opponents. Here's what Pat Nelson had to say in regards to Evander being the best choice of opponents:


"That's nonsense. There's a list of 15 ranked contenders by the WBA to choose from, and one, Minto is not only a free agent but is also well known in Germany and the U.S. Opportunities should be offered to boxers of the present generation, while they are in their primes. Networks, sanctioning bodies and promoters should take responsibility to ensure equal and fair opportunity. Mr. Dimitrov, there is a viable challenger, and his name is Brian Minto."

Valuev vs. Holyfield Almost Inked?

According to recent news there may be a voluntary defense from "The Beast From The East" Nicolai Valuev against 4-time heavyweight champion "The Real Deal" Holyfield. The fight if is signed will occur on December 20th of this year in Zürich. Since Golota just lost and was considered an alternate opponent choice, this will most likely be signed unless of course they decide to go with Golota's conqueror Ray Austin.

Here's what Valuev's manager Boris Dimitrov had to say:

"The Valuev–Holyfield fight will take place on December 20th in Zürich. Why Holyfield? Because we do not have other viable options. Golota can't get in a ring against Valuev. The fight contract is not signed yet, but in two weeks we will agree. Yesterday Nikolay has arrived from Japan. Until November 16th he will prepare for the fight in Russia, and the closing stages of his preparation will take place in Germany."

Kevin "Kingpin" Johnson Interview

Undefeated, up-and-coming, and WBA #5 ranked heavyweight Kevin "Kingpin" Johnson (20-0-1, 7KO) had an interview ahead of his fight tonight with Matthew Greer (12-3,11KO). The fight tonight will take place at the Bally's Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.

Q: Kingpin, how are you doing?

KJ: I am doing good, real good. I had a great training camp, and everything is absolutely beautiful.

Q: You just fought two months ago, do you like this busy schedule you are on right now?

KJ: Oh yeah, I love it. I love staying busy. I am a fighter, this is what I do. I just want to keep getting fights and keep showing the boxing world my abilities and keep racking up these wins.

Q: I am going to throw a name out at you, without thinking what's the first word that comes to mind, David Haye?

KJ: B*tch, with an English accent. The guy is a joke. He calls me out, I answered his call and then he punks out. His people tried to say I asked for too much money. That is an out and out lie. I told them I would fight for less then what they offered me. Money was not an issue, because I know once I knocked him out I would walk out of there a very rich man. My fights after destroying him would have brought me tons of money. I would have fought him for free, that's how confident I was I would have knocked him out cold. He is susceptible to left hooks, and I have a great left hook and the minute I hit him he would have went. The real story of what happened was after he called me out and I accepted, he watched some video footage of me and then said no way will I fight that guy. I can't be too mad at him though because he is just like the rest of the heavyweights out there, none of them want to fight me. I wouldn't want to have to fight me either

Q: In your last fight, you knocked out former heavyweight champion of the world Bruce Seldon. Prior to that fight you adamantly stated you would knock him out and silence your critics that you are more then just a gifted boxer with a terrific jab. Which is the Kevin Johnson we will see from here on out, the gifted boxer, or the come straight forward banger?

KJ: From here on out you are going to see the new and improved Kevin Johnson. You are going to see a boxer who has the total package. Boxer, banger, it doesn't matter. Every fight, it doesn't matter who it is, I am going to put on an exciting show, and look spectacular doing it. Truthfully I still have not shown the boxing world the best Kevin Johnson yet, but I promise you, he is coming.

Q: You recently were moved up to number 5 in the WBA. What's your take on all of the top guys and champions out there? Do you think anyone is going to step up and give you a shot, or are you just going to have to keep winning until they can not avoid you any longer?


KJ: Yeah basically that's it. I know none of these guys want to face me, and it's no secret. On my worst day they don't want to see me in the ring. But as long as I keep fighting and keep winning there is going to come a time when they are either going to have to fight me or they will have to just hand their belts over to me. I just try to not let it bother me or effect me. I know my time is coming. I have a great promoter in Joe DeGuardia and Star Boxing and he promises me the time is coming very soon. That's what I love about Joe, when he tells me something he delivers. My man is on point.

Q: Wladimir Klitschko, Vitali Klitschko , Nikolay Valuev and Ruslan Chagaev. Give me your hit list in order of champions.

KJ: First I will take out Valuev. He is the easiest and I am ranked highest in the WBA so he has to go first. Then after him I will want to take a step up so Wladimir will have to be next. Then after I destroy his younger brother Vitali will have no choice but to fight me so I will fight him and gladly take his belt too. Vitali will be my hardest task, but that's all it is, a task. Not one of those guys stands a chance with me. Oh yeah I almost forgot Chagaev. Sorry I have to leave him off my list I don't consider him a world class fighter. I didn't even know he was still boxing until you just mentioned his name.

Q: Kevin thank you for taking time out and sitting down with us. Anything you want to say in closing?

KJ: To all my beautiful ladies out there, I am still single, I am still tall, dark and handsome, sweet and sexy come out to the fight and see me in action I look good (laughs Johnson). On a more serious note, I want to thank my promoter Joe DeGuardia and Star Boxing for putting this fight together. I also want to thank Bally's for bringing me back to this great venue. Lastly, to all those so-called heavyweight contenders and champions out there, I am coming for you, for all of you.
