  • Khan’s trainer Freddie Roach will be taking a break from his training camp with Manny Pacquiao to travel to Manchester, England to be with WBA Super World light welterweight champion Amir Khan (24-1, 17 KO’s) for his fight against unbeaten EBU light welterweight champion Paul McCloskey (22-0, 12 KO’s) on April 16th, at the M.E.N. Arena.

 

  • Mayweather Jr. reported price tag 100 million - Unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. has reportedly asked for $100 million to fight Manny Pacquiao in a mega fight that unfortunately will not be happening any time soon. Mayweather who is obviously looking to get as much as he can for the fight is asking to much and his price will have to come down to a more realistic level if he really wants this fight to happen. Someone in the Mayweather camp had secret talks with Bob Arum [Pacquiao's promoter] recently but the approach did not quite pan out form what Arum is saying. - In an interview at mpboxing.com, Arum said “Went through negotiations with Mayweather, nobody knew about it. Some group came in and they wanted to put it on in a particular country and Mayweather asked for a number that was so high, it indicated that he didn’t want to fight. Take a guess at the number that he asked for, for himself? One hundred. That’s right, $100 million. F–k, I mean, who’s going to pay him $100 million? I mean, unless Manny Pacquiao fights for nothing, how can you do the fight? He [talking about Mayweather] can’t say no, he doesn’t want the fight, so you price yourself out.”

 

  • Junior lightweight José Pedraza (1-0, 1 KO), the highly touted 2008 Olympian and former amateur star who turned pro in his last fight, will face Corbin Page (1-1) in the main event on March 29 the BB King Blues Club in New York City.

  • Adama vows to defeat Upshaw - Ghana’s former 3-time Africa Boxing Union (ABU) champion Osumanu Adama 18-2 (13KOs) has sworn to defeat American Marcus Upshaw 13-4 (6KO's) when the pair square off in an International Boxing Organisation (IBO) middleweight world title eliminator this Friday March 25 at Hanging Gardens, River Grove, Illinois, USA. The 30 year old Adama popularly called Ozzie Adams who defeated Angel Hernandez for the IBO International Middleweight title just last December 17, hopes to claim the USBO Title, also on the line will be the Vacant USBA Middleweight title & Vacant IBO Intercontinental Middleweight title.

 

  • Namus-Muñoz result changed - The Uruguayan Boxing Federation decided on Monday to declare a no contest in Saturday’s bout in Montevideo, Uruguay, between Uruguayan Chris “Bombon Asesino” Namus (14-1, 6 KOs) and Spaniard Loly Muñoz (9-8-1, 6 KOs) after a very controversial majority decision win by the local boxer. Both fans and the press alike expressed outrage saying that Munoz had a ‘clear superiority’ throughout the fight and the outcome ‘hurt not only the credibility in the judges but the whole of Uruguayan boxing,’ prompting the government, through the ministry of Turisimo and Sports, to request the change. Two of the three judges scored for Namus by 97-93 and 96-95 and a third had it a draw. The 23-year-old Namus is one of the country’s sports idols and holds the WPBF female light welterweight title.

  • South Africa’s Thomas Oosthuizen will have his second crack at winning the IBO super middleweight belt when he meets Evert Bravo of Colombia for the vacant belt at Emperors Palace, Kempton Park on Saturday night. In November last year the southpaw Oosthuizen drew against Malawian Isaac Chilemba in a clash for the vacant belt. The 21-year-old Oosthuizen has three belts in his collection, the IBO Youth light heavyweight, IBO Youth super middleweight and the WBA Pan African super middleweight.

 

  • Sylvester vs. Geale - IBF Middleweight Champion Sebastian Sylvester (34-3-1, 16 KOs) will return to the ring on May 7 when he defends his title against mandatory challenger Daniel Geale (24-1, 15 KOs) in Neubrandenburg, Germany. The two camps struck a deal last weekend before the official purse bid was due. It will be Sylvester´s first fight since a clear points victory over Mahir Oral last October. A virus infection forced him to pull out of his clash with Mehdi Bouadla in January. “It was not a good start to the year but I took a long break and now I am ready to fight again,” Sylvester said. “I really look forward to returning to Neubrandenburg. I have to make up for the late cancellation last time with an entertaining performance and a big win.”
