  • Heavyweight Demetrice King has been paid in full, by Gotham Boxing president Cedric Kushner, for his March 19th fight in New Zealand against David Tua. This was confirmed over the phone by King from his home in Jackson, Michigan. - “I had no reason to believe there would be any problems with the promotion given Mr. Kushner’s reputation,” King said. “However, it did cross my mind when a promoter who had scheduled the fight four months prior didn’t purchase our airline tickets until the day before our departure and take advantage of a lesser price booked in advance. When Mr. Kushner returned to the U.S., I told him that I hadn’t been paid by the local promoter, Mr. Tuigamala. Mr. Kushner told me not to worry because he’d sort things out, and guaranteed me I would get every dollar I was entitled to. That was good enough for me, even though the delay caused me and my family an inconvenience, but I knew Mr. Kushner would be true to his word and he was. I hope he can get me more fights in the future.”

 

  • Rola El-Halabi shot before fight - Friday night’s boxing card at Digibet Pferdesportpark Berlin-Karlshorst promoted by ARENA Sports-Promotion and Prime Time Events & Entertainment ended in a shock. Former WIBF and WIBA lightweight championesse Rola El-Halabi was shot by her stepfather and former manager in the dressing room while preparing for an IBF championship bout which should have been the last fight on the night. - El-Halabi and two members of the local security staff were hit and injured by bullets before police could end the incident and arrest the shooter. The incident happened after eight of the scheduled ten fights had already been finished.

 

  • Vitali Klitschko Could Return On June 4th - According to Dan Rafael of ESPN.com, “Dr. Iron Fist” Klitschko could box again on June 4th. Reportedly, EPIX, the T.V company which aired Klitschko’s 1st-round stoppage of Solis, have been in talks with the Klitschkos about an American TV deal. With Wladimir now expected to face David Haye in the summer in either June or July, Vitali is pretty much free to fight who he wants. One of the two brothers must fight Tomasz Adamek in Poland in September, as per their agreement with the Polish contender, and that will most likely be the older Klitschko. But Vitali is looking at getting one more fight in before facing Adamek. According to Rafael, one of the names being mentioned for a June 4th challenge of Vitali is former WBO heavyweight champ Siarhei Liakhovich of Belarus.
