The reason setting his sights high relic is wanting a boat against 42 year old current cuban heavyweight contender, luis ortiz who’s 32-2.
With 27 knockouts and he clean, he claims to be in the best shape ever even at his advanced age.
Now, based in the u.
s, i’m sure there’ll be a state that has to have a sanction about involving running having seen evan holyfield recently approved for professional vote.
Only for that decision to be reversed.
There is now a worrying trend for aged fighters to come out of retirement for one last hurrah, but further nesting.
The retirement fund to some is too much temptation, whether it be an exhibition, boat or, as is desired by ruddock of a professional boat.
It’S just a matter of time before an accident happens and it’s sad to see a former fighter.
Fedex stature, lured back by the dollar sign.
Sadly he won’t be the only one, though i’m sure many more senior boxers looking their lips at the thought of one more payday.
Now, speaking of paydays, it’s interesting to note also that erica cruz has signed with matchroom boxing.

She holds the guinness record for most boxing world championships in different divisions.
The 24 year old american youtuber shared part of his training camp with serrano.
For the card in which both achieved important victories, it is expected that a fight between semano and irish katie taylor also considered one of the best fighters today and signed a matchroom by the way can and will take place soon.

As an adult castro explained, i had a lot of personal issues.
I then moved and trained for a while in worcester massachusetts, where i met chuck sherns, who became my advisor and later my manager.
I’M not worried about this fight because at the end of the day, i’ll do what i do.

Integrity reforms is the headline following the publication of the report for the first phase of professor richard mclaren’s independent investigation into boxing aiba noted the findings regarding the rio 2016 boxing tournament with concern and confirmed that extensive reforms have been implemented to ensure sporting integrity.
At the current aiba competitions, professor mclaren was appointed by eiba as part of the recognition by the current aiba leadership that governance, sporting integrity and financial integrity were not previously satisfactory and that there was a need for reform.
Professor mclaren will investigate not only rio 2016, but also all key events till now to reach full transparency, and i quote: iaba president umar kremlov, professor mclaren and his team have identified a system for manipulating the results of bouts at the rio 2016 boxing tournament.
I am determined to ensure that boxers receive a fair fight.
This determination is demonstrated by aab’s, clear commitment to uncovering the truth and acting on it.
We must now carefully examine the report and see what steps are needed to ensure justice.
What is important, as it would make sure the medic mechanisms are in place to show that results are above suspicion, good words and more action to come on that front, i’m sure upcoming.

We’Re delighted to bring boxing to the biggest mainstream audiences on sky sports so to be here now on the brink of our first show.
The first of many one every two weeks until christmas is an amazing feeling said chris eubank jr activity.
That was the main goal for this year.
I wanted to fight at least three times a good performance on saturday and then right back in the ring in december on sky sports.
Everything is going to plan.
I really believe so.
This is definitely the next chapter.
I’Ve had many chapters in my career so far, and this is potentially going to be the most exciting one.
We have the full backing of sky sports and there are many huge fans fights to be made.
Sorry, i’m in the prime of my career, i’m 32 years old.
I’Ve got two three four years of solid prime fighting in me and we’re going to be displaying it on sky sports.
I’Ve got a hell of a lot of good fights in me, muritov has got 25 wins and two losses as a solid opponent.
This is a perfect fight for me, where i’m at right.
Now, after i get through this man, we’re on to other big names and a world title, i’ve probably seen about five minutes of this guy box.
So i actually don’t really even have a good game plan for this as of right now, because of the late change we’ll match more of him as the days go by and i’ll deal with him on the night.
