FINALLY: AGREEMENT REACHED

 

 

The WBC is proud to announce the confirmation of an agreement during the free negotiation period between the camps of WBC Heavyweight Champion Bermane Stiverne and WBC mandatory contender Deontay Wilder. Consequently, the purse bid process for this mandatory fight is cancelled.
“I am extremely happy to know that there is a definitive agreement for this fight to take place as soon as possible. The heavyweight division is back, and fans around the world are waiting with great expectation to see this highly-anticipated WBC heavyweight championship of the world,” said Mauricio Sulaiman.
“Ali, Frazier, Foreman, Holmes, Tyson, Lewis and Klitschko paved the way for today’s king, Bermane Stiverne … the king of the heavyweight division. Bermane Stiverne will show the world his power and greatness, precisely during the 40th anniversary of ‘Rumble in the Jungle,’ which I promoted and that changed the structure of boxing. Stay alert, details to come,” said Don King.
“I have worked for many years and my dream materialized to conquer the green and gold belt, which I will defend with honor and pride for many years. Nobody is getting in my way,” said Bermane Stiverne.
“I am anxious to get in the ring and score my 33rd win and my 33rd knockout. I will be the WBC Heavyweight Champion of the world,” said Deontay Wilder.
Specific details will be announced by the promotion in a spectacular fashion.

 

COYLE EXPECTING A WAR WITH KATSIDIS

 

British lightweight Tommy Coyle has revealed that he will consider it "a privilege" to share a ring with Michael Katsidis on Saturday night.
Coyle will be attempting to defend his IBF international title against the Australian, who is known for his aggressive style, and the title holder admits that he is expecting a war from the first bell at the Hull Ice Arena.
The 25-year-old is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "This one has got war written all over it. It's a fantastic fight, it'll be a privilege to share a ring with 'The Great'. I used to be a big fan of his and I still am. I've watched his fights for years.
"When I was offered the fight, I took it straight away. I think all the boxing fans know I like to be involved in exciting fights and I'm sure this one will be another one of them."
Coyle has won 19 of his 21 professional fights, while Katsidis, who is fighting in England for the third time, has 30 victories from 36 contests.

 

Jessie Vargas en otra prueba difícil en su ascenso hacia la nube más alta
Por Jaime Estrada


photo Mary Ann Owen

Jessie Vergas es un pugilista que toma muy en serio su profesión de pugilista y a pesar de la crítica de los incrédulos, se ha ganado a pulso el trono de monarca superligero, y se prepara para defenderlo cuando cualquier intruso que intente despojarlo. Por esa razón, se entrena a todo vapor para agradar la romana y porque todos en dicha categoría y a sus alrededores, están con largas uñas para destronarlo y de paso ponerle una nube gris en su record limpio de descalabradas. Si a las pruebas vale remitirse, Jessie ya demostró de que esta hecho ante tres mercenarios, quienes a pesar de no ser tan famosos, si gozaban de palmares de imbatibles, como el africano Omotoso quien llegó con 23 victorias, y los rusos Khabib con 19, y Novikov con 29, y el siguiente rival, también es zurdo como lo fueron los rusos, pero esta vez se enfrentará ante un aguerrido mexicano de 28 años, quien tiene sendas derrotas ante Adrien Broner y Edwin Valero, pero también tiene logros ante John Molina, al cual anestesió en la inicial, ante Miguel Román, el cual sucumbió en el quinto y Jorge Linares en el onceavo, pero la leve desventaja para De Marco quien goza de 31-3, 1, consiste en que esta subiendo a la división de los superligeros, pero eso sí, están del mismo tamaño y mientras que Jessie tiene los mismos 25 en años y en triunfos, espera seguir su racha en Macao China en la antesala de Pacquiao contra Algieri el próximo 22 de noviembre.
Para Jessie es de regla seguir defendiendo el titulo, porque sabe a ciencia cierta, de que al pasar esta prueba de fuego, le van a llover ofertas por doquier contra los más temerarios en el planeta Tierra

BRAEHMER TO FACE GLAZEWSKI

 

On December 6 in Oldenburg, Germany

Juergen Braehmer (44-2, 32 KOs) will defend his WBA World Light Heavyweight title against Pawel Glazewski (23-2, 5 KOs) on December 6 at the EWE Arena in Oldenburg, Germany.
"I’m looking forward to getting back in the ring and defending my title for a third time this year,’’ said Braehmer, who returns following a unanimous decision points victory over Roberto Bolonti in June. "Glazewski is a quality opponent and I’m sure we will entertain the fans with an exciting encounter at the EWE Arena.’’
"Recently, I have faced opposition who have either been well-conditioned or big punchers. Glazewski possesses both these attributes. Although he does a lot well, I do it all better. I’m superior to him in every aspect of the fight game. I will prove this come December 6!’’
Tickets for the WBA World Light Heavyweight Championship clash at the EWE Arenas in Oldenburg are available via www.eventim.de.

BARKLEY HAS MINOR STROKE

Bronx warrior and former three-time world champion Iran Barkley is currently recovering at Lincoln Medical Centre after suffering a minor stroke and a seizure at home yesterday. Barkley’s niece, Barbara informed The New York Daily News that Barkley, known of course, as “The Blade,” was “stressed out” about the health issues two family members were going through.
“He was stressed out,” Barbara Wilder said. “He never had any health problems before. It was the stress factor. But he’s in pretty good health now. The doctor just said he was under a lot of stress.”
Barkley’s two family members, his brother and his niece, are both suffering from lung cancer, cancer being the disease that sadly killed Barkley’s father back in 1990.
Thankfully, however, 54-year-old Barkley is expected to pull though from his own condition.
“He’s good, he’s talking, he still looks like Iran” Barbara said. “He can walk around and everything. He’s going to be here for a couple of days but he’s doing well. He’s alert.
