Gary Shaw isn't mincing words about Joan Guzman, and he's against his fighter, Ali Funeka, facing Guzman tomorrow night: "He is trying to save Golden Boy's show. This is not my date, this date belongs to Golden Boy, who did not monitor the weight of their fighter. I have thought about it and it is definitely not a go until I speak with Funeka and his team. I think Golden Boy should step up and renegotiate Guzman's purse. I hope the networks like ESPN, Showtime and HBO, will never allow a two-time loser, meaning at the scales, to be televised again on their networks." (Rick Reeno @ BoxingScene.com)

"Boom, body shuts down, no more pounds come off - I’m training just to move that weight. No water, no food. We go to Mississippi one week before the fight. I’m only about 138lb so eat chicken and broccoli, and then go running, but I lose nothing. Then more running, I lose nothing. The food stays in my body. Training doesn’t help; there is no sweat, twenty minutes in the sauna, no sweat. I feel bad and work for two days without any sweat. The day of the weigh in, I’m throwing up blood so the doctor checks me and says I cannot fight." ... "I feel bad because people think Guzman has no respect for the fans. I worked hard to lose weight but it was getting me nowhere. I trained three times a day. I die in the gym." --Joan Guzman, talking about missing weight for his scheduled 2008 fight with Nate Campbell. This is an excerpt from Terence Dooley's excellent two-part interview with Guzman, who rematches Ali Funeka on March 27. Part one is here, part two is here. (Photo by Doug Benc / Getty Images)
