Boxing is going through a difficult time and this type of fight complicates the picture even further. This affects those of us who would like to bring boxing to a different level, back to the golden era...Personally, I never heard Joe Cortez tell the boxers to start fighting again. If someone is apologizing to me, I should wait until they are ready. I would have never done what Mayweather did" - Miguel Cotto [my translation]

R.I.P. Wladimir Rodionowitsch Klitschko Wednesday, July 13, after a long and severe illness died Vladimir Klitschko Rodionovich, father of boxing world champion Vladimir and Vitali Klitschko. Vladimir Rodionovich for his life raised two sons and three grandchildren. Colonel of the Air Force, he was a lifelong devoted service in the army, took an active part in the accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. \Quote ends here. Reportedly he followed the WK - Haye - fight on TV in a clinique in Hamburg and was transported to Kiev directly afterwards to spend his last days there.

"I really feel bad for the fans that have been waiting for the Pacquaio fight for so long. It's just, if I fight a fighter, I want to make sure that fighter is 100% all-pure and all-natural. He just doesn't want to take these same tests. I work too hard to take a chance of losing to a fighter that's cheating. I'm not saying that Manny Pacquaio is cheating. That just goes for any fighter." Floyd Mayweather

Born in Seattle, Mr. Griggs lived on the streets after being cast out by his family for failing to "fit in," and he has incorporated some of these painful experiences of youth into his moving tale of a boxer’s journey. "Killer Queen" packs such an emotional punch, in fact, that it has inspired the creation of a nonprofit organization, the Empowerment Center for Youth, that specializes in training young gay boxers. "The play intertwined with a strong belief I had that boxing can help disempowered gay youth to make an informed decision about how to handle themselves," said Mr. Onello, who was so taken with the play that he decided to start the center with one of his students, Steven Mele. Mr. Griggs, a 42-year-old dramatist and performer in San Francisco, trained at several gyms before meeting Mr. Onello, 44, two years ago. Their chemistry inspired him to write Mr. Onello into the play, a one-man show (except for Mr. Onello’s cameo) about being gay in the hyper-heteronormative world of boxing.

"But being a British fighter and having more support from American TV just shows that as a British fighter I should have had British TV supporting me more... I think it will be a long time until I come back again" Amir Khan, throwing all his toys out the pram and totally forgetting about his fights televised on ITV, Sky Sports and Sky Box Office. This really pissed me off, because there are British fighters who really haven't had any support from British TV (Carl Froch didn't even have the Jermain Taylor fight televised live here, and has been shafted on Primetime ever since) while Amir's had every single bit of support possible. He needs to stop blaming Sky and take some of the rap for choosing an opponent nobody knew, before he starts annoying a lot of people. http://www.boxingscene.com/amir-khan-upset-i-fight-uk-long-time--38138

Roy Jones is returning full-time as analyst for HBO's Boxing After Dark. Show has used 2 announcers since @HBOboxing fired Lennox Lewis.

Dan Rafael's Twitter. Oh happy day. Hopefully he doesn't take the Antonio Tarver route and continue to have ill-advised fights after what should be his post-fight career is starting to take off.

On New Year's Eve a week ago, writing a blog, I mentioned that I hope to fight for the championship belt by the end of 2011. Today, all indications are that in the coming week I will be signing contract to fight Wladimir Klitschko.

Tomasz Adamek's Official Website (in Polish). Other sources are reporting that Klitschko's camp has confirmed this fight as well. This whole situation has become a fine mess, but at least Klitschko seems to be turning lemons into lemonade. Talks with David Haye fell through after no TV date was available in the UK until July. Klitschko then signed to fight Dereck Chisora as a warm-up, and Haye apparently refused the July fight (which was still on the table) because he felt that was too close to Klitschko's scheduled April 30 fight. Klitschko moves on to the next best thing, as Adamek is the consensus #4 heavyweight in the world and apparently the only top heavy yet to face a Klitschko who actually has the fortitude to do so. Haye is now slated to fight his mandatory Ruslan Chagaev in May. Of course, that will probably never happen because Chagaev can't get licensed to fight in the UK due to his hepatitis-positive status.

Got off the phone with Bern Beonte: Wlad-Chisora resked for 4/30. No Haye fight now. They agreed on points, but couldnt find date/site.

Dan Rafael's Twitter. Klitschko and David Haye couldn't come to an agreement on dates, since nothing worked in both the UK and Germany until July. Rather than sitting out for half a year, Klitschko will go back to fighting Dereck Chisora in April, with the prospect of a possible Haye fight still up in the air.
