Big fight this Saturday in Cleveland. Brewster against the Belorussian whitewolf who in his last fight beat prospect and Audleys next opponent Dominic Guinn. An impressive win for Lamon would definitely confirm him as the worlds current no 1 heavyweight fighter. Who'd have thought a few years ago.

==============

WBO junior welterweight champion Miguel Cotto and unbeaten challenger Paul Malignaggi officially announced their June 10 pay-per-view showdown today at a press conference at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Brock-Ibragimov presser!
By David Greene
A packed crowd at Gallagher's Steak House in Manhattan turned out for the announcement of "Undefeated... But Not For Long," a Main Events promoted HBO Boxing After Dark doubleheader on June 24. Headlining the card at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas will be heavyweight Calvin Brock of Charlotte, NC, (28-0, 22 KO's) who will be facing Timur Ibragimov of Uzbekistan, (22-0, 18 KO's.) The second bout of the Boxing After Dark telecast will be a WBA welterweight title eliminator between Colombian Joel Julio (27-0, 24 KO's) against Carlos Quintana of Puerto Rico (22-0, 18 KO's.) Brock said of Ibragimov, "I'd like to thank team Ibragimov for coming to this boxing match, they put up a real good, tough opponent. He's the first professional boxer that I'm going against that has a good amateur background." A man of few words, Ibragimov promised simply, "It will be a very hard and tough fight. I will do everything for this to work out."


Timur, no relative of, against Brock. Good fight for both. Happy to see 2 prospects square off against each other. Hope Samuel Peter gets a good fight after next in the summer cos his last 2 fights will have been against mediocre journeymen. Time for him to make the step-up.

Beyer set to face Bika!
By Frank Bleydorn
WBC super middleweight champion Markus Beyer is set to defend his title against Australian Sakio Bika on May 13. Last year in March, the German again faced a challenger from "Down Under" in Danny Green. The 26-year-old Bika will bring a record of 20-1-1 with 13 KOs into the Stadhalle in Zwickau, Germany. He is three inches taller than the champion. "Bika is a very strong punching opponent. This will not be a challenge to take lightly," said Beyer about his Cameroon-born foe. "The fact that he is taller than me I don't consider to be a disadvantage. This has already been the case with many opponents."

:thumbsup: I been saving articles throughout the week so Ill add to this.


Chammi murdered!

Top Australian middleweight prospect Bassam Chammi (3-0) was murdered in Granville, Sydney, Australia on Wednesday. The 26-year-old Chammi was gunned down along with another man. Chammi defeated experienced New Zealand middleweight Jamie Waru recently and looked to have a bright future.

Klitschko loses election!

Former heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko was unsuccessful in his bid to become mayor of Kiev. In somewhat of an upset, both Klitschko and incumbent mayor Oleksandr Omelchenko finished behind Leonid Chernovetskiy, who was running about eight points behind the two in pre-election polling. Vitali made it official with a concession speech in which he said "It is important to know how to win and how to lose." In a separate election held the same day, Klitschko's hope of getting into the Ukrainian Parliament also appears to be dashed. Early results show voters to be rejecting Vitali's Pora-PRP bloc, which needs to garner 3% of the votes to get into the national legislature.

Abraham to defend against Jantuah

It was officially announced earlier today that IBF middleweight champion Arthur Abraham will defend his IBF title against Kofi Jantuah on May 13 in Zwickau, Germany. German news agency DPA is reporting that in the co-main event WBC super middleweight champion Markus Beyer will be facing Sakio Bika, who is currently rated #13 in the middleweight division.

Cotto-Malignaggi undercard!

June 10 is on fire -- the super-steamed Miguel Cotto vs. Paulie Malignaggi showdown at Madison Square Garden will include the pro debut of Notre Dame football player Tommy Zbikowski and a middleweight title defense for Irish sensation John Duddy, announced Bob Arum of Top Rank.

Häußler-Mack IBF eliminator

Super middleweight Danilo Häußler (26-3), out of the Wolke camp in Frankfurt (Oder), will face undefeated Yusaf Mack in an IBF eliminator on May 13 in Germany confirmed his trainer Manfred Wolke.

King vows upset; Zab a no show!

IBF Welterweight champion Zab "Super" Judah, 34-3 (25 KOs), did little to change perception of his attitude today as he failed to show for a conference to hype his April 8 "Sworn Enemies" showdown against pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas


Hatton gives up IBF belt!

Ricky Hatton will give up his IBF light-welterweight title after refusing to fulfil a mandatory defence against number one contender Naoufel Ben Rabah. Hatton is poised to move up a division in May to meet American Luis Collazo for the WBA welterweight crown. But it means he will surrender the belt he won last summer from Kostya Tszyu.

Boxing promoter wins $2.7million claim over bout

The local company that staged the July 2004 Mike Tyson fight in Louisville has won a $2.7 million judgment against the Gibraltar-based company that it alleges failed to turn over international broadcast revenues from the bout.
Chief federal Judge John G. Heyburn II also has ordered the Gibraltar company, Brearly (International) Ltd., to pay 45 percent of all its receipts over $2.7 million, plus interest, to the local Straight-Out Promotions, which is headed by Chris Webb.

---------------------------------

Caught some training pics of Brewster and he looked to be carrying a bit too much around the midsection. Hes always been a lazy fighter so maybe hes taking Liakhovich lightly similar to Meehan (although they were friends and rumour is he was trying to get Kali over).

Liakhovich has been caught late before and hia defining victory over Guinn has minimised after he has subsequently shown his level. Hes a good boxer but his chin isnt the best. Brewster on the other hand was outboxed by Etienne and Shufford along with two of his most recongised wins until he got the major punch off, Wlad and Krasniqi. I expect similar here, late KO Brewster for me.

The white wolfs trainer doesn't seem to think so :pp

"Sergei is a better fighter than Brewster. Much better. He has better moves. He's quicker. He is a complete fighter. Sergei has only been knocked out three times in his career and that includes 150 amateur fights."

Predictably both fighters camps been talking up the fight on how they're all in top shape and got this immaculate desire to win it :D

Agree on Brewster though:



That said he does have a chin and heart to make up for it all.

Im suprised by this. I dont know many trainers who would admit to Amatuer knockouts when talking up a fight with a dangerous puncher.

The white wolf's done it :eek: in what was supposed to have been one of the best heavyweight fights lately. If anyone finds a video of it, please put it on here. Read the Belorussian showed heart, good boxing skills (although it's not hard to outbox Brewster) and a good chin too.
So what next? a re-match? or could we be seeing an Eastern European unification tournament coming soon provided the big O and Wlad win their next fights?

Skelton, McBride and a ring rusty Joe Mesi all won last night too.

Is there a reason why it plays like it is in slow motion?? Would that be because of the video quality?

Awesome Maz :thumbsup:

Whatever held both fighters up in round 5, 6, 7 and 9. Both probably one shot away from knocking the other out, especially in the 9th where Lyakovich just needed one clean punch.

btw using the link Maz gave and googling a bit, I see the page it was from:
http://fightnews.ru/video/

some good stuff on it...recent stuff like the Ratman vs Toney, Vargas vs Mosley, Howard Eastman vs Miranda, Mayweather vs Judah and more like even Ike Ibeabuchi vs Chris Byrd, Tyson vs Holyfield, Nigel Benn vs Gerald McClellan, de la Hoya vs Vargas..just tonnes of stuff :dazed:

Wow what an exciting fight. Just finished watching it. A real war, Brewester wouldn't go down. Liakhovich could have maybe got him if he backed up a bit and punched from a distance and not smothering. But overall it was the most exciting heavyweight fight i have seen in a while, thanks again maz for the link.
Also wally thanks for the link, ill be downloading some fights off there :thumbsup: ;)
