MIA CONFIRMS FOR BOX FAN EXPO

 

 

FORMER WBC WOMEN'S CHAMPION

The Box Fan Expo will coincide with Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s last fight and Mexican Independence weekend.

St. John is one of the most decorated and famous female professional boxers of all-time. She is the former WBC, IFBA and IBA world champion who gained popularity by appearing on some of the biggest undercards in boxing history, many of which were headlined by Oscar De La Hoya.  She also has appeared on the cover of Playboy and appeared on many of the popular talk shows all over the world.

St. John joins Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin, Ruslan "Siberian Rocky" Provodnikov, Terrible" Terry Norris, Joel "El Cepillo" Casamayor and "El Feroz" Fernando Vargas among early commitments to this year's Box Fan Expo.
This unique fan experience event, which allowed fans to meet and greet boxing legends, past and current champions and other celebrities of the sport, debuted last September.

Fans were treated to visits with Mike Tyson, Roy Jones Jr, Sergio Martinez, Amir Khan, Zab Judah, Mikey Garcia, James Toney, Riddick Bowe, Leon Spinks Terry Norris, Shawn Porter, Chris Byrd, Jesse James Leija ,Lamon Brewster, Ray Mercer, Earnie Shavers, St-John, Erislandy Lara, Quillin, Jean Pascal and Austin Trout.

IS BRADLEY READY FOR THE RUBBER ROOM?

 

 

TIM BRADLEY IS READY TO TAKE ON
JESSIE VARGAS AND ERIK MORALES!

VARGAS AND MORALES THINK
BRADLEY IS READY FOR THE RUBBER ROOM!

AND THERE ARE STILL THREE DAYS TO GO
UNTIL THEIR WORLD TITLE FIGHT!

 

 It all started on Tuesday afternoon when former two-division world champion TIMOTHY "Desert Storm" BRADLEY JR. (31-1-1, 12 KOs), of Palm Springs, Calif., arrived at his fight week hotel and was asked about his upcoming welterweight world title fight against undefeated World Boxing Association (WBA) super lightweight world champion JESSIE VARGAS (26-0, 9 KOs), of Las Vegas, NV. One has to wonder if adding meat to the former vegan Bradley’s training diet excited his blood!!!
“Jessie Vargas? I’m going to whup his ass on Saturday! And if [trainer Erik] Morales got a problem and he wants some he can get some at the end of the year too. I’m going to beat his boy,” declared Bradley. “Then I can come back and I’ll beat his [Morales] behind. He can come out of retirement. We can fight at a catchweight – 154 pounds…200 pounds -- and I’m going to whup your ass next! I’m fired up for this! Thank you for firing me up. That Saturday night is going to be a good night. It’s going to be a good night for Team Bradley. I’m going to walk out that ring with another belt strapped around me.”

BAILEY IS BACK AND SERVES NOTICE

 

Randall Bailey serves notice to any & all
Top rated junior middleweights in world

 

Coming off 19-months of inactivity and making his junior middleweight debut last weekend, Randall "KO King" Bailey (45-8, 38 KOs) served notice that he's making a serious run at yet another world title in a different weight class.

Three-time, two-division world champion Bailey stopped veteran Gundrick "Sho-Gun" King (18-15, 11 KOs) in the second round with a left hook, not his notorious right, in the main event at Riverdale Center of Arts in Riverdale, Georgia.

"In the first round," the 40-year-old Bailey explained, "I just wanted to get the feel in the ring and start using my jab. I hit him with a couple of good right hands, but I knew he was experienced and that he was looking for my right. I came out in the second using my jab and left hook, starting to really feel it again. I crushed him with my left hook. I've been telling people I have more than my right but they haven't listened.   I did have a little rust in the first round but, in the second, I had my jab working, backed him up with it, and started putting my punches together.

"Fighting at 154 was, well, just another fight. I did feel stronger, though. Now? I just want to stay busy. It doesn't matter who I fight, I'm not worried about anybody at 154, but I don't really have enough time left to take baby steps. I want to get right back in the ring. It's go time for The King!"

KHAN NOT HAPPY

 

Amir Khan has finally gotten the bad news that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is looking in another direction for his September 12th fight by saying he’ll be choosing either Karim Mayfield or Andre Berto. Khan is finally coming to terms with the reality that Mayweather isn’t going to fight him ever, and he’s taking it pretty hard judging by some of the comments he’s making.
Khan says he’s going to talk to Al Haymon, his adviser, (and Mayweather's advisor) to see what he can do for him in terms of lining him up for a big fight. Mayweather wants an entertaining fighter, and Mayfield or Berto are very good at bringing excitement. Mayweather obviously wants someone who will bring the heat to him, rather than a fighter that will run around the ring fighting on his back foot all night long like he’d probably get with Khan.

KHAN SAYS FLOYD IS AVOIDING HIM

 

British welterweight Amir Khan has claimed that Floyd Mayweather Jr doesn't want to face him in what is scheduled to be his final fight on September 12.
After defeating Manny Pacquiao in May, Mayweather announced that he would only compete one more time before retiring from the ring, while on Saturday, he indicated that he would face either Karim Mayfield or Andre Berto.
Neither contest would create the same level of intrigue as a showdown with Khan, and the former Olympic silver medallist has encouraged the pound-for-pound king to face him at the MGM Grand.
The 28-year-old told The National: "There is nothing more from their camp. Floyd is clearly avoiding me; that's the fight I want, I've proved myself in the welterweight division, so I don't know what more to do.
"He fought Pacquiao now when he is over the hill. If he had fought him five years ago, Manny would've beaten him.
"I hear he wants an easy fight for his 49th and final fight; he has been mentioning names like Andre Berto and Karim Mayfield. Why not take the fight with me, if he thinks I am that easy?"
Khan last fought on May 29 in New York, where he battled to a points win over Chris Algieri.

Former world champion Antonio DeMarco (31-5-1, 23 KOs) has decided to hang up his gloves after being defeated by Ranees Barthelemy on Sunday “I don’t want to offer excuses to all people that trusted me and my family,” said DeMarco in a statement published on the WBC website. “I am calm, but at the same time disappointed. However I do believe in cycles and mine is about to end. I want to thank God that boxing and the people always supported me. Thanks for everything you gave during my career. It’s difficult but I am sure God will set me more goals and dreams to fulfill.”
 

"I want to apologize to all who had confidence in me and to my family. I feel at peace and at the same time disappointed with myself," DeMarco said in a statement. "I thank God and boxing and the people who always supported me for all they gave me during my career. It's tough, but I know God will show me new goals and dreams to conquer."
"God bless you today and always, and all my fights were for you, my family and people that helped me in my beginnings. Thanks to God for allowing me to fulfill my dream. I will miss the ring and all the people, but will always have them in my heart."

FLOYD JR. CALLS DAD IMMATURE

 

Money May Calls Dad Floyd Sr. Immature
for Lambasting Adrien Broner

 

Undefeated pound-for-pound king  Floyd "Money" Mayweather called his father Floyd Sr. immature after the latter criticized Adrien Broner's performance and called him a bum.
Money May said his dad is in his 60's, but acting like he's in high school.
He then reminded Floyd Sr. that he never won a world title while the person he is criticizing, Broner, is a three-division title holder.
After Broner lost a one-sided fight against Shawn Porter, Floyd Sr. wasted no time hurling insults at Broner before indulging on self-promotion.
Floyd Sr. said Broner is a clown and a joke and doesn't deserve to be a top ranked fighter. He added that Broner looked like he had "nothing" and "like a bum" with all the grabbing and holding.
And that all womanizing and drinking Broner is doing, said Floyd Sr., will not lead him anywhere.
Then the older Mayweather began giving advice: He said that Broner needs to learn how to fight and should come and see him. Floyd Sr. added that "it's my way or the highway and no other way."
But the younger Mayweather lambasted his father for all the trash talking.
He noted that his dad is very biased and speaks highly of a fighter only if he's training him but when Floyd Sr.'s fighter loses, he is nowhere to be found.
Money May recalled that Floyd Sr.'s fighter, Mickey Bey, lost to John Molina, who in turn was made to look like an amateur by Broner.
Floyd Sr., said Money May, would not talk about that fact.
Money May also pointed out that Broner is fighting under the Mayweather Promotions banner and is making him money. So all the criticisms is not just hurting Broner but also him.
The pound-for-pound king said that his dad should focus on his fighters and shouldn't have anything to say against those under him like Adrien Broner.
He also complained that Floyd Sr. tried to make it appear that the fight between him and Manny Pacquiao was a matchup between trainers: his dad and Freddie Roach.
To emphasize his disgust, Money May gave his dad a warning: "I forgive but I don't forget."

24-year-old Brant, from Oakdale, Minnesota, started boxing in 2007 and by 2009 was already a national champion. He went on to become a member of the US National Boxing Team and win the 2010 National Golden Gloves, among many other distinctions, before turning professional in 2012.
Primarily a boxer, though possessing above-average power, Brant is a technician in the ring with a strong ability to improvise and adjust mid-fight. His strong conditioning allows him to push the pace and break his opponents down, mentally and physically.
